“Starfruit LA” by Choker is an exercise in texture and sonic experimentation. Synths start the song off in an ethereal, beautiful manner. Chris, the man behind the name, takes no time to mark his entrance. Within mere seconds Chris is singing It’s my party I can die if I want to. It’s my party I can shine like a star fruit. Sound waves full of  youthful energy burst through an ever present breakbeat backbone. Clack meets smooth. That is best displayed in the slow, rhythm and blues-tinged outro. Choker is an artist whose passion for music shows through his emotionally potent music.
