Different Strokes - Show 5 - The Starkiller & Mixamorphosis

15 January 2024


Different Strokes show number 5 saw me joined by The Starkiller. I really thought it was a long shot when I asked him to be a part of this show. Not only does he put out his own original material that takes in shades of disco, nu-disco, acid, techno and more, his reworks that he has put out over the years are genuinely on another level to most people that put out edits and remixes, and it's this quality that has brought him around 80,000 followers on Soundcloud alone... that is impressive numbers for that platform and someone that isn't "mainstream". So, I was genuinely over the moon to be sharing the stage with him; another [insert Wayne's World 'we're not worthy' gif] moment.

Both mixes are very eclectic, there's AOR, disco, italo, rock, electronica and let's go with the catch all term of (is it?) balearic. By this point, if you've listened to the other mixes that were part of this show, the premise of what I was aiming for was to have people not knowing what they were going to get from show to show, or even at times from track to track. The whole thing for me was that there is way too much good music out there that people don't hear because they gravitate towards one or two specific fields of music, and for me, the whole interest in "DJing" was about bringing new things to other people. I kind of felt this show captured this pretty well.

Anyway, onto the mixes, and as usual I will link the tracklists up as well as I possibly can....
