Darkstar began life as a production duo, James Young and Aiden Whalley, releasing 12″ inches on their own label 2010 Records.
The pair then released singles such as “Need U” and “Aidy’s Girl is a Computer” on the groundbreaking Hyperdub imprint.
In late 2009 Darkstar began recording with songwriter and vocalist James Buttery who featured on the first LP “North.”
At this point the duo became a trio, signed with Sheffield born Warp records and began working on what would become “News From Nowhere,” their second LP which was released in February 2013.
