Philadelphia PA



Robot Hands

PJ Geissinger aka Starkey is blessed with musical arrangement skills that would leave most composers green faced with envy. This combined with his high production ethic makes him a formidable force not only in the underground but also as a super producer of the future. Starkey is yet another example of what the streets of Philadelphia can create, his sound hits hard and is littered with bass and colourful audio frequencies. If you like grime, dubstep, hip hop and all things “street bass” then Starkey’s hard edged spaced out crunk is the sound for you. 2008 saw Starkey selected for Mary Anne Hobb’s low end special “Generation Bass”. 2 years later in 2010 he was again selected by MAH for the “Building a beat” special where he crafted a track from scratch in the space of 2hrs live on air. Starkey is also co-owner of the Seclusiasis and Slit Jockey Record labels, and a member of the Trouble & Bass Crew, releasing the freshest output from around the globe. This combined with his fortnightly radio show on Sub FM has positioned him as one of the tastemakers to emerge out of the bass heavy underground. Recent remixes include Tinie Tempah, Armand Van Helden, Gorilla Zoe, Uffie, Tempa T, Zomby, Inner Party System, The Constellations, Kano and The Foals to name a few!! Current writing and production sessions with Guy Sigsworth (Bjork, Diana Vickers, Imogen Heap, Britney Spears) are proving fruitful with songs being passed around various major recording artists such as Kelis, Missy Elliot, MIA, Britney Spears, Dizzee and more...stay tuned.
