Glasgow’s Starla Records celebrate their debut release with a 45 from the label’s house-band The DT6.
This first release is a storming Hammond-led slice of funk entitled “Don’t Doubt Me”. Recorded in Glasgow with the cream of Scotland’s new generation of funk and jazz musicians, we hope it sets the tone for the label with a benchmark of quality and originality. The B-side is another DT6 track with the addition of vocals from Marco entitled “Open My Eyes”, a sweet and more laid-back track with a whole lot of soul. Read monkeyboxing.com review
Future releases will feature other artists and a variety of styles, but always with the Starla stamp of quality. Starla will be a vinyl-based label, with the focus being on limited-edition 45s. We have a number of exciting projects in the pipeline for future Starla releases and there will be live/club events in the near future as well.
The label has been put together by djs Craig Loosejoints & Mark Robb (The Buff/Streetlife/Ecurie Weegie) and engineer/musician Marco Rea (Palamino/Rainbow Family) to showcase Scottish musicians and new artists from the country’s, and particularly Glasgow’s, vibrant music scenes.
