About Darkstar

London, England-based garage/dubstep duo-turned-electronic pop trio Darkstar debuted in 2007, when producers James Young and Aiden Walley released the "Dead 2 Me" and "Lilyliver" singles, as well as a split 12" shared with Zomby. A handful of additional 12" releases followed in 2008 and 2009. The twitchy "Aidy's Girl Is a Computer" (Hyperdub) was the most significant one of the lot, backed by a remix from Detroiter Kyle Hall and placed in best-of-2009 features by a handful of high-profile publications, including The Guardian. After vocalist James Buttery was added to the lineup, Darkstar completed their debut album, North (Hyperdub), and released it in October 2010. The trio returned in 2013 with the lighter and brighter News from Nowhere (Warp). Andy Kellman
