Eagles & Butterflies – Birds of Paradise [Spread Your Wings]
Eagles & Butterflies has released an incredibly creative EP on Spread Your Wings. Showcasing their strong production ability in many different styles, the EP jumps from unique track, to unique track in a really fun way. Whether it’s the 80 BPM “Earth”, or the 125 BPM “Cinematique”, each track has an interesting flavour. The release also features two great remixes by Uner and Kydus that give the EP a broad and very diverse selection of styles and tracks. Overall, there will be something here for everyone. Earth is laid-back, groovy, and just a fun track to listen to. The synths are well done, and I enjoyed the tone of the drum kit E&B used. Cinematique is a percussive masterpiece and grooves very hard with it’s eclectic drum lines, and intricate details that add a touch more danceability. It’s fun to listen to, and takes a bit of time to chew. The Waiting Game brings out the thick bass-line/synth combination. It gives room for the instrument to breath, but also has just enough drive from the percussion to keep the chilled-out vibe but also have enough energy to make people dance. Uner‘s remix takes Birds of Paradise and gives it a retro/8-bit vibe, but the best part is how he uses synths to create an incredibly groovy track. The synth stabs give the track so much energy and keep things going in the best way possible. Kydus’s remix is very upbeat, and features a very well produced bass-line. While it can be a bit repetitive, the tone of the bass is very well done and I suggest those who produce check it out.
