MR BIRD: Champignon Sound (2012)

The world of breakbeat seems to be awash with downtempo stuff this autumn and here’s some more in the shape of Mr Bird‘s Champignon Sound. Funk and hip-hop aficionados may well recognise the cowbell-toting break on which this rests, although as far as I’m aware it hasn’t previously been combined with minimal synth melancholia and wobbly bass. Ghetto downbeat anyone? On remix duties are Jayl Funk – who takes funky liberties with some slap bass, a bit of cocktail sax and some nineties-sounding female vox samples – and Djtzinas who caps this by enriching Bird’s work with retro organ sounds making it, of the three mixes, the one that most truly sounds like it was made after taking ‘champignons.’ Mr Bird wraps the whole outing up with minimal party breaks cut Supafly which sounds like it’s been hijacked by Yello. Again, one speculates as to the true extent of of liberty cap inspiration here…
