After the success of their Channel U – Best of British nominated ‘Keep Holding On’, UK urban collective Nu:Starr come with their new release ‘Candi Treat’. RnB producer Kayo produces the single’s urban cut and for the dancefloor there’s an explosive remix from the UK’s top breakbeat personality, Angel Farringdon. Early support has come from both side of the water with top US Breakbeat tastemaker DJ Icey giving the Angel Farringdon version spins stateside, whilst in the UK Jay Cunning has recently dropped it on his Kiss FM show. Original members Milen Yonas and Adiam Teckle (AKA Angel) met in Sweden’s capital Stockholm, the girls see Nu Starr as the vehicle through which they aim to touch and inspire as many people as possible through their music. Their live performances are something not to be missed either, recently performing alongside Omar and Nate James throughout the UK. “Listen up people, there’s a Nu Starr rising”!
