My latest song ‘Starlight – Lucky Star’ is a free download

In 2004, I produced a CD called Past Becomes Future, released on Pro Soul. It’s a compilation of various artists that is basically a celebration of dance / electronica / R & B through modern versions of classic pop songs from the 70’s and 80’s.

The latest track I have produced, ‘Starlight’ is a combination of retro Madonna and the kind of Hip Hop you remember, back when it was great. It was conceived for a live show after the album was released, but the chorus vocals were never recorded. I started by recording and editing together various 12″ vinyl remix records, and then had Luvva J aka Jose S. Gutierrez Jr. put down an original rap on it. Then I punched it up with some additional beats and synth. I always liked the track and what Jose did with it , so recently, I decided to remix it and have Laura Harley record the missing vocals. She did an amazing job, and we decided to put it out there for you to listen to as a free download.

This song is special for a few reasons, 1: It is basically the first, but not last, free song I have put out there, 2: It is not attached to any particular project – Those that know me know I very rarely do songs like this that are just for fun because I am so busy producing other artists songs, and 3: It is very different than anything I am producing now, and it is different than the usual style of the artists featured on it.

I hope you enjoy it! Tell your friends, and let me know what you think.

    Hi Jarome,
    ‘Starlight’ is a great song – thanks for sharing it with us. I’m amazed at how many different projects you’re able to do at once! Thanks for all your wonderful work on my songs too. Can’t wait to share them with the world…

    Thanks! Remember, this song was started 3 years ago. But it still took some time to get it presentable to the public. This is why I don’t do my own music much, there are too many other projects!
    But sometimes, I need to do a project that is very different than what I am producing for artists to release creative energies so they don’t end up influencing what I am producing more than they should…
