Star Eyes — WHITE GLOVES EP
Trouble & Bass resident bad girl Star Eyes unleashes three heavy-hitting original tracks that prove she’s never lost her hardcore. Following 2009’s haunted house-themed Disappear EP and a crop of remixes for the likes of Creep, Hussle Club, and Riviera, the White Gloves EP finds Star Eyes’ filtering her obsession with old-skool rave, jungle music, and partying all night in the darkest of warehouses through the lens of modern heavy bass, house, and grime. “White Gloves” is pure peak-time madness, with classic breakbeat chops falling down a rabbit hole and emerging into a cavern of ruffneck bass punctuated by hands-in-the-air piano stabs and dangerous airhorns. The dark and crispy roller “What Do You Mean” pairs skittering UK funky-style percussion with a growling low-end that channels Ed Rush & Optical. Rounding out the EP is “Ride or Die,” a haunting drive through grime house territory, shot through with lasers, demanding snares, and Star Eyes’ own hardcore-inspired vocals. One EP that will definitely have you calling for the rewind!
