Slipknot’s Sid Wilson aka DJ Starscream delivers a bipolar ode to undying love with #TheLoveInside!!!
For the last 15+ years, Sid Wilson has been a member of the Grammy award-winning heavy metal band Slipknot, but for the last few years, his love for hip-hop & turntablism has driven him to tour the globe as DJ Starscream (you may not recognize him considering he spends the majority of his working day with a gas-mask on).
Love for this culture is all we ask for. Over a few decades, we’ve witnessed artists venture into multiple facets of hip-hop, and when it’s done with true passion & respectable levels of talent, there’s no such thing as “going wrong”. “The Love Inside” takes us past the dinner & movie dates, into the real physical euphoria – that’s much more engaging. Let’s be honest, a sonic bipolar visual is painted, reminding us that this type of love never dies.
Though writing rhymes since the age of nine, this is just the start of DJ Starscream’s new chapter as an emcee. Recently securing a position with one of hip-hop’s latest fine tuned collectives The IV League (alongside Ras Kass & company), he places emceeing equal on the meter as he does turntablism & other elements he has selflessly embraced over the years.
Atari Blitzkrieg & Sid concretely canvassed the production credits with careful balance – offering mild head nodding verses & an energetic, rather nostalgic hook (hence the sonic bipolar coaster mentioned). The shift is pleasant & not shocking if you know the personality you’re tuned into. With years of predominantly high energy levels & moving crowds, it’s only right. A flush sample of Black Sheep’s “The Choice Is Yours” is spread lovely, locking in even more insurance with hip-hop junkies.
DJ Starscream’s upcoming album, ‘Sexcapades Of The Hopeless Robotic‘, will be released in 2016!!!
