Following up on their euphoric smash “Aldo”, Bruce Karlsson and Nick Sember, aka Norin and Rad, have just released “Bird Is The Word” on Anjunabeats, a surprising surge of high-energy rave meets big room progressive house.
Norin & Rad – Bird Is The Word
The track has already received acclaim from heavyweights like Above & Beyond, Kaskade, Madeon, Mat Zo, Porter Robinson, Seven Lions and more. Teased out in Mat Zo’s Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 earlier this year, “Bird Is The Word” sees the Californian duo step out with a bold, exhilarating and forward-thinking dance floor monster that fuses a range of influences in unique style.
Beginning with cheeky vocal samples and a drop into a funk-fuelled groove that manages to be both minimal and heavy-hitting, “Bird Is The Word” leads into a breakdown that is full of the spine-tingling stadium melodics that Bruce and Nick are known for. The killer curve-ball comes on the drop that tears into a powerful rave-edged synth that sirens dance floor destruction every time.
