Moonstarr

Moonstarr is one busy cat. If he ain't on the phone holding things down on the business end for PTR, he's hunkered down behind closed doors over his synths, drum machines, and samplers to bang out mind-melding beats.

Citing musical influences as diverse as Underground Resistance , DJ Premier, Baden Powell, Zakhir Hussein and Sun Ra, Moonstarr's sound has continuously evolved with releases on such noteworthy labels as Sonar Kollectiv, Guidance, Twisted Funk, Planet E, MPS, Compost, Do Right! Music and his home, Public Transit Recordings. He collaborated on musical projects for indie soul, electronic, and jazz heavyweights such as Jazzanova, Recloose, 4hero, Ennio Morricone, A:XUS, LAL, Ivana Santilli and more. In the process, Moonstarr has gained worldwide acclaim for his music from veteran DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Rainer Truby, Laurent Garnier, Marc Mac, Carl Craig, and DJ Spinna and from various publications like Straight No Chaser, XLR8R, Remix and Exclaim.

Besides running Public Transit Recordings, the label he co-founded with Dialect (Mano Narayanan) in 1998, Moonstarr is busy playing shows and rocking dancefloors from Berlin to Tokyo to Puerto Rico to all points in between. His trademark live performances have graced such distinguished venues as London UK's legendary CO-OP club night, San Francisco's BetaLounge, and the eclectic Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, to name but a few.
