"Don't call me anything, call me everything" is a common response from the DJ,Producer, Recording Artist Blaqstarr. Not to limit his potential, the artist is constantly evolving exploring new sounds, talents and audiences. Starting DJing at just 14 years old at house parties in Baltimore, the young man quickly found success as his first production, baltimore club hit "Tote It" at 16 spread through house parties,clubs mixtapes and local radio play. The song was later sampled by rapper Lil Wayne, which is indicative of the world reach Blaqstarr's music soon attained. Soon blaqstarr's music was played heavily on local radio. Since then, he's worked and toured with Diplo and MIA, collaborated with Win Win, Steve Aoki, Talib Kweli,Common and others. As a signee to Interscope, he released his first major artist project "Divine" EP. Which Rolling Stones described as "Blaqstarr comes off like a Prince-style auteur who spends more time in dark alleys than champagne rooms. His gauzily processed production shrouds falsetto come ons and playalistic mumblings in a skeevy haze, perfect for torpid, booming tracks that deploy anything from layered girl-chirps to distorted guitars to a pilfered Cameo beat in service of massaging his psychedelic freak."  The world has been waiting for more from the multitalented artist and will get what they've been asking for. BLAQSTARR is currently promoting "Moan Her Lease Her", a audio peep show where the subject is a prostitute. As DJ, Producer or recording artist, he stretches the imagination, painting pictures people have never seen before but always yearned for. It's only the beginning for this young veteran. Welcome.
