UK ‘new age soundsystem’ duo, Star.One, present ‘Okay’ (featuring Maleek Berry & Seyi Shay) their debut single for 3 Beat, the label home of Sigma, High Contrast, Stylo G, and more.
The hybrid nature of British music in 2017 owes a lot to the ‘DIY’ nature and creativity of a newly thriving soundsystem culture in the UK. Right at the vanguard of this nascent resurgence are Star.One, championed by MistaJam, Target, 1Xtra, Noisey, Huw Stephens, Pigeons & Planes, Fact, Phil Taggart, and beyond. Brothers Joe and Adam describe themselves as a ‘new age soundsystem’, whereby the music they make, and the parties they throw, blur the lines between UK garage, grime, and bass music, while taking influences from the past 50 years of British black music. Okay is a great example of this, merging old skool UK Garage production with the Nigerian stylings of Afrobeat stars Maleek Berry and Seyi Shay.
