First, I have to admit that I’m not overly acquainted with electronic music apart from genres like Ambient or Vocal Trance (well, those days of childhood…). I became aware of Starkey when strolling about on several music blogs, finding both cover and description quite appealing. Of course I didn’t know what to expect – which can be quite refreshing, because in my opinion expectations often blur the listening experience – so it struck me rather by surprise when hearing the first tunes. Starkey manages to blend harsh drum/bass patterns with melodic and incredibly catchy, freaked out melodies in a really satisfying way. It’s an overall very good release, but ‘Command’ and ‘…and then God built the Cosmos’ really stand out. Well, because I lack the fitting terms to describe this kind of music… listen to Orbits by Starkey since it is an unlikely entertaining musical release.
