SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): DJ Snake & Alesia – “Bird Machine”
You got to love anyone whose bio simply states “We make music, fuck a genre. If it’s good, it’s good.” Frenchmen DJ Snake and Alesia team up for a trap/moombahton/downtempo/electro/wtf track based on samples of birds chirping. Yeah, it’s further proof that you can make a dance record from anything, but the manipulation of the natural sound of birds to “that” piercing sound you always hear in these records is quite brilliant. The sprinkling of retro ’90s hip-house samples just takes it to the next level. “Bird Machine” is so sick and cool that I wouldn’t be surprised if Azealia Banks drops a vocal bootleg sometime next week.
