He's a redheaded remix wizard from Manchester and his name is Star Slinger.
Over the last couple of years, the Slinger's reworked about a billion tracks by big indie names like Broken Social Scene, Washed Out, Deerhunter, Toro y Moi, and Childish Gambino.
And now he's dropped his debut single, "Dumbin'," a sparkling slice of funky whiteboy soul co-starring Reggie B that's available for free download via Green Label Sound.
So go score some "Dumbin'" and then grab a pair of gratis tix for Star Slinger's gig at Bardot tomorrow night. Just see the cut for contest instructions.
