Starlight is collection of music inspired by the serenity, mystery and romance of the nighttime.

nice, short little concept project. listened to it this morning, and really liked what i heard. seems like monster's taken his game to another level with the last two albums and now this EP.

some choice cuts from the last two albums:






island romance is so fucking good. if you listen to it, check out the little interlude at the end of the song. it's nice too.

i love the hypnotic rythm of let's go faraway.

i almost got a job directing a fringe play last year that was a tribute to golden girls, where it was kind of like an episode of golden girls and the characters would actually play the GG characters. anyway, while being considered for the job, i kept thinking i wanted to use the monster rally song, love, either at the start of the show before the actors come out, or during a scene change. i imagine it would have had a similar affect to the music during the opening credits of trailer park boys. i always loved that song with those credits on that show with the kids running around and all that. anyway, it would have been dope, but those fools hired someone else and the show got shitty reviews.

i don't expect this thread to get much attention, since monster's style (ie sample choices) is pretty unusual. but i know there are fans out there, so just sharing this for them. this EP won't win over any new fans, i think.

it's very left field. i've previously very pretentiously described MR's music as don draper in hawaii meets hip hop. that probably makes no sense, but that's exactly what it is, and i love it, haha.

listen to the tracks, island romance and let's go faraway, from my first response in this thread. those tracks represent MR at his best, i'd say.

Eh, he's hit and miss.

But he's on a hot streak with the last few projects.

final bump.

listened to this all weekend. still dope to me, ain't no flip floppin' here. the first two tracks are hella dope. oddly, track one feels more like a final track than an opening track, imo. it seems like that happens occasionally, where i'll listen to a project with the idea of changing it, and i'll notice that the opener seems more like a closer.

i'm going to add these tracks into his last album, flowering jungle. i cut a number of tracks from that over the weekend, and these tracks will be nice replacements. i might even make a best of comp, from this EP and his last two albums.

oh, shit. that game!

a month ago, i was trying to remember what that was called. i completely forgot about it, and then it popped into my head out of the blue last month. i remember watching the matrix, and then going hard with that game, during a sleepover at my friend's house one time.

what an absolute pokemon ripoff. damn.



you got the feisty boy protagonist with the hat, standing in for ash; the yellow main monster, standing in for pikachu; the rock monster, standing in for onyx; and the taller female character that knows a lot more than the boy and serves as an exposition device, explaining the world and monster characters to the boy as well as the audience, standing in for misty.

man i'm so glad you knew what i was talking about as soon as i posted the suezo

as a kid i was blown away that you could put a cd in the console and it would give you a different monster, i thought that was the tightest shit ever

back then it seemed like every major video game or toy franchise had a cartoon to go along with it, like the show was just an extended toy commercial lol

hell yeah gino

digimon was cool too but i hated that the monsters would always revert back to baby bitch form after they evolved

plus that card game was convoluted as fuck, i never understood it

i'm trying to remember what happened in digimon. in the first season (or whatever), there was this big black villain digimon. and after they defeated it, something happened where this group of villains showed up and kicked our hero gang's ass, and one of the heroes (the second main boy) became a villain. i'm trying to remember that gang of villains that showed up, because i remember it was the most badass shit when i was a kid. like, it fucked me up how bad they were or something, haha.

the dark masters, they were called. those guys were very effectively bad, from the perspective of my no-pussy-getting kid self.

damn, the song that consists of the first two minutes on this track is fucking dope:



i checked this leftovers project when it first dropped, and shrugged it off. but just revisited, and that song is real nice. the rest of the songs on the two tracks of this project are whatever, but i'm going to have to add that first song on track two to my comp.
