Forgotten Treasures

Forgotten Treasure: Moonstarr “Detriot” (2004)

House / Techno
Words by:
Moonstarr (Montreal / Toronto)
Founder of PTR Music

“One of my classics! I used a Chroma Polaris for the pads and a matrix 1000 and octave cat for other sounds. The drums were actually a BOSS DR-660 and the reverbs were from my Roland VS-880ex. Can you believe that?!?! Amazing times yo. I’ll never forget when the Jazzanova boys came to Toronto for a press tour (not even djing) and stopped by my studio to check tracks. (There is a pic in my new album of that space).

They loved Detriot yet it took me 3 years to find the time to finish it. Came out at just the right time I think. Artwork is by Tyree Guyton. Support the heildelberg project in Detriot when you have a chance! They do amazing work with kids in Detroit. http://www.heidelberg.org/”
