MR BIRD FEATURING GREG BLACKMAN
Low-Fi Classics is a love letter to that scratched, dusty old mix tape that you just couldn’t let go; a simple effective and touching home made soul album by two funky cats at the top of their game. A musical marriage made in heaven filled to the brim with strut, sweetness and singable hooks.
Be Warned: don’t expect a modern day super-squashed treble fest. Low-Fi Classics is an album that squarely turns it’s back on The Loudness War favouring a subtle, understated approach to sequenced music that calls back to the classic hip hop soul of the 90s without being a slave to the sound of other artists.
Producer, DJ and Multi-Instrumentalist Mr Bird brings influences as diverse as they are unique to the music for Low-Fi Classics, displaying a lightness of touch and a lingering background melancholy to his musical ear that establishes him as an artist with a true voice of his own.
Vocalist, Songwriter and all round Powerhouse Greg Blackman, fresh from his collaborative album with DJ Vadim, shows restraint and versatility on this project using many aspects of his unforgettable voice to create memorable, thickly layered soulful jams, flowing effortlessly over Bird’s diverse palette of rhythms.
Dropping 12 unique songs about people they’ve known, lessons they’ve learned and simple honest love of a good groove, Blackman & Bird have given their generation something really special in Low-Fi Classics: a timeless home made soul album that the audience will still be able to enjoy for many years to come. Quite simply: classic.
