James Vincent McMorrow

Long time IHM favorite Star Slinger tormented us with a long silence earlier this year, but when Star Slinger chooses to give us the gift of music, he does so in copious amounts. The UK based hip hop and electronic producer even collaborates with a long list of incredible talent on his newly released We Could Be More EP. The a compendium of enthralling songs features the likes of Sam Sparro, Tunji Ige, D∆WN, and more. It also includes this transcendental song, Slow Love, which features Ireland’s ever brilliant James Vincent McMorrow on silky, creamy vocals. Star Slinger certainly stretches out and displays his versatile production chops on his new EP. Slow Love is a smooth sensuous, dreamy glinting masterpiece much different from the early Star Slinger tracks we’ve partaken in together. Stream Star Slinger’s We Could Be More EP in full on Soundcloud and purchase from various services, here.

coffee shop productivity: the low key edition

You’re relaxed, at peace and more importantly, at work. The ideas are flowing into a steady pace of productivity. Voices speak softly in the background and the aroma of coffee are about. You’ve kept calm and are now carrying on. (listen)
