Groove In Your Heart (Only Way To Start) (2019)
BIRD0002 features a sunshine filled heater that flips an infectious War sample to get you grooving into Summer. Premiered on Delia Tesileanu’s ‘Counterpoint’ radio show, the latest Birdland release is a selector’s choice cut to bring the sunshine vibes to any dancefloor. The tune lays out a deep groove from the get go, with War’s infectious vocal taking center stage to allow for maximum funk. Keeping it restrained, the prime sample is saved for an explosive peak point, entrancing the dancefloor in a state of boogie. This is a truly sunshine inspired heavyweight cut to be used with caution, guaranteed to stir up the groove from Detroit to Peckham...

This release is guaranteed to heat up the floor no matter the setting.
+44 Thinking Of You (Charles Vaughan Remix) (2018)
I’ve been invited to contribute a remix to Loraine James’ latest releases +44 - Thinking of You. Loraine James’ IDM production work creates an un-relenting intense sonic experience so for this remix I decided to bring the energy down for a 140 remix, fluctuating between acid inspired bass lines and stripped back vocal breakdowns.
Cyclical Waves (2018)
This is a live recording from the Whitstable Biennale festival released with Diva Contemporary. The piece used data from the tidal heights of Whitstable to control different parameters of my Korg Minilogue. The piece was time specific, with the data matching the performance time for a truly unique rendition. The synth blends with the sounds of the beach and distorted granular effects to create cyclical waves of analogue ambiance.
Nighttime Flutter (2016)
Released in late 2016, this EP marked my first production release since moving to London. The EP for me encapsulates the music, art and experiences that London brought to me, and my responses to them. A large amount of influence came from the South London bass music scene, from local nights as well as online digital communities and movements.

This EP was my first release and exploration into more neo-classical and experimental productions. The EP pairs digital effects with minimalist techniques to create a electro-minimalist three movement EP.
