Israel Starr


Having been raised surrounded by all things Reggae and base culture; it’s only natural that Israel Starr has become an important part of Aotearoa’s ever-growing Reggae, Dub, EDM and Hip-Hop scenes. Israel is involved in all facets of the music industry from producing, singing & song writing, promoting, touring and managing artists. Israel is well versatile, combining hard raggamuffin flows to soothing melodies to create a unique blend truly original. Son of Aotearoa Legend The Mighty Asterix, Israel has learnt from the best and is now notorious for his rowdy yet mature live shows.

Israel Starr credits his talent to his upbringing in the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Growing up in the Twelve Tribes meant that he had the opportunity to hone his skills on Reggae Sound System culture and learn from some of the best reggae talents in New Zealand, including vocalist Che Fu, Herbs and selectors Oblex Brown. Israel Starr has stamped his mark on Reggae, and bass culture after playing semiprofessional Rugby League in Australia in his early twenties. He has joined forces with New Zealand’s top producers and DJs like Art Official, The Nomad, Dub Terminator and many more to form killer deejay/mc teams.

Over the last two years Israel has been producing some of NZs toughest tunes including the number one single Long White Cloud feat Awa and Lion Rezz released in July 2015 and his 5 track EP Through the Ages and Forever released November 2015. Israel Starr has recently collaborated with Gappy Ranks (UK), Majic, NRG Rising, Sons of Zion, L40, Awa (Nesian Mystik) and many more. In September 2014 Israel launched his label BlessUp Music under which he has signed up other self-managed artists to nurture under the BlessUp Music roster. Over the last twelve months, under BlessUp Music, Israel Starr has produced 10 tracks and released 3 music videos including his most recent single Undying.

Releasing killer tunes and sharing the bill on tour and festivals with Aotearoa’s best and international greats like Channel One Soundsytem, Walshy Fire from Major Lazer, Andrew Tosh and J-Boog; Israel Starr has succeeded in creating mass hype with these solid releases and inspiring live shows. With a bright future ahead keep your ear to the street and look out for Israel Starr’s groundbreaking strides!
