DarkStarr is the new project from Dj Cosmo and Ashley Beedle. This is surely going to be their year with parties, productions - including remixes of Ashley's new venture Mavis on !K7, and Salvador Santana, plus a compilation album DarkStarr Psychedelic Disco-Tech: They Live by the Night due for release in April on Music Response Records.

Mavis is Ashley Beedle and Darren Morris' new project. Their debut album on K7 features Candi Staton, Edwyn Collins, Ed Harcourt, Kurt Wagner and more. As all of the songs are lovely and mellow, Cosmo and Ashley decided it was time to mix it up and give Candi's song "Revolution" a new spin. Their DarkStarr Mix is the result.

Mavis ft. Candi Staton "Revolution" (DarkStarr Mix) and (DarkStarr Dub) will be released on Bitches Brew at the end of March. It will be released as part of the Bitches Brew limited edition 10-inch series with hand silk screened jackets and hand stamped labels. This is a follow up to the debut release of the series, Horace Andy & Ashley Beedle's "When The Rain" (Cosmodelica Mix) which was a huge success. Subsequent releases on the limited edition 10-inch series will include DarkStarr Mix of Salvador Santana and a Cosmodelica Mix of The Phenomenal Handclap Band.

For those of you near Glasgow this weekend, come join Ashley and Cosmo for a real knees up night of music at one of our Glasgow's favourite disco parties Melting Pot for there 9th birthday celebrations. This one is not to be missed. Enjoy the music...
