INTRODUCING STARTRIPPER:


Startripper are a loops/guitar psychedelic 2 piece from Chester, UK. 

Featuring Vince Cory on lead (Sonic Trip Project/Red Elektra 69/Ash Magna/Nik Turner) and Daniel Schott on decks/synth/samples, this is the spirit of ’67 with 90’s big beat sensibilities.

The duo, both originally from the same Cheshire village but a generation apart, met through Dan’s love of Vince’s other band Red Elektra ’69 and started experimenting with loops and samples from the likes of Chemical Brothers, The Beatles & The Spencer Davis Group, with Vince throwing lead over the top and Dan adding noise and fx. 

This lead them to playing a number of live improv gigs around Chester and also the remixes appearing on Soundcloud

As the rehearsals went on and the duo were finding their sound, Dan started building his own samples and work started on their original material. 

Over the last 18 months Startripper have released two EP’s and Dan has released a side-project with Chester musician David Watson entitled ‘Startripper & The Blue Boy’  all through Schott’s List Music, with all the back catalogue available to stream at the end of September 2019.

This has a different feel to the wonderfully stark mixtape.

We went back to the tracks and gave them a slightly warmer sound, startrippering them out a bit.

Once again, thanks to David Watson for working with us on this concept.

I've put together a mixtape of unheard/unreleased/demo/future material from Startripper on Mixcloud:

www.mixcloud.com/SchottsList/futures-past-a-mixtape-by-startripper/

1. 'Stray Cats & Blind Mice' (DEMO)

Featuring Pete Horn , this was a track originally mixed and released before an audio upgrade in 2017 and since deleted.

Due to the old software restrictions, I'm currently rebuilding it from scratch for a future release. This is our work so far.

2. 'Santa Claws' (UNUSED DEMO) 'Santa Claws' originally featured on a Christmas charity compilation in 2017.

I worked on the track around Halloween in preparation of the deadline and I think it shows. This is an alternate edit in a lower key.

3. 'Vega' (UNUSED TRACK)

An early piece from 2017, It's a tribute to Alan Vega from Vince Cory.

It's a monster of a track and has never fitted on our previous two releases.

This is the original mix by Vince, without the added effects that appeared on recordings doing the rounds. Stripped back and amplified.

4. 'Dead Man's Hand' (FUTURE RELEASE)

Featuring Ken Peace on harp.

We're waiting to get some more material in the same vein together before releasing this.

Ken & Vince with musical pistols at dawn.

Needs a re drum and a slight tidy around the edges.

5. 'Clap Trap' (FUTURE RELEASE)

Our oldest original track.

Very simply put together with some amazing picking from Vince.

It's developing a light space-disco vibe as it evolves. The end still needs more clarity.

Enjoy.
