“Lost Girls” was inspired by Star Eyesʼ birth in the illegal warehouse parties of Los Angeles—itʼs all big 808 bass and handclaps and Scooby Doo horror, complete with ghost typewriters and girl proclaiming “I live for drugs.” Further pop-locking onto the scene, “Just Blood” calls all vampires to the sacred circle with trunk-rattling Miami bass sounds, refracted house stabs, and a crazy loon howling from the synthetic mist.
Moving from the fogs of Transylvania to the streets of Oakland, “Whistle Tip” is a midnight cruise down MLK Jr. Boulevard, vandals hooting and hollering through the dark over heavy narwhal bass and low riding cymbals. “Purple Grape” closes out the set with a violet-hued post-dubstep cut for the late-night crew. Lots of different vibes on this one, progressing back and forth between spacey and uplifting LTJ Bukem feelings and a sort of head-nodding G-funk gangsterism of the synth. Smoke it up!
