Inspired by the complexity of birds and aviation, Summon Birds explores the world of the sky with productions ranging between Hip-Hop and EDM. Using midi controllers, expressive synths and heavy percussion, REMINGTON intended to create this EP for anyone that loves synthetic sounds, bass, and headnotic beats.
Birds are the keepers of the air. They hold attributes of androgyny; with the masculine ferocity of their talons and swift marksmanship as hunters, and the femininity of their grace and beauty in flight. Each track intends to reflect the inept nature of these creatures, yet still holds true to the musical roots of hip hop, EDM and bass music.
