Aviary Bridge Records’ fourth seasonal compilation album, “Summer” released on 31th August 2018, brings the series around full circle as we begin to enter Autumn once again. For the final seasonal challenge, Aviary Bridge Records once again gave their roster a theme and an image to base their music around. This time the challenge was to capture the essence of a summer evening, where the sociable nights are long and comfortably warm due to the lingering sunlight.
A trip hop album with dark, cinematic elements, “Episodes” immediately evokes a dusty city vibe which Zesik deftly puts together using a complex mix of intense, hard drum breaks, distorted synths and vintage detuned pianos.
“Sage” is C l i m a t e ‘ s second offering and is a mixture of instrumental Hip Hop/Trip Hop with the now signature oriental instrumentation and glitch synths. The result is a surprisingly successful mix of upbeat funky moments with a feel-good vibe (even euphoric in places!). The deeper purpose of this music is, as its title suggests, to highlight the wisdom of wise men from the twentieth century, conveyed cleverly throughout via speech samples which provide a clear narrative and a thought provoking experience.
The story of how one track can inspire others, causing it grow into a much bigger collaborative project.
