Marcioz – Ayre for Rejection ft. Slow Shudder
After coming back from Lost Lands Music Festival, I’m invigorated to search for unique arrangements that combine genres and give me that WOW factor as a listener who loves bass music. Slow Shudder’s new collaboration with producer from Brazil, Marcioz, released off the independent record label, bitbird, does just that. The track is called Ayre for Rejection. Bitbird was established in 2014 by Sander van Dijck in The Hague, Netherlands. Some of their most notable releases have come from such artists as San Holo, DROELOE, Taska Black, Duskus, and BeauDamian.
The track combines elements of indie/folk rock with dubstep, taking Slow Shudder’s unique transient/distant soul vocals and pairing them with a contrast of hard hitting bass and soft guitar with twinkling ambient elements. The heavy saw wave drop fits the narrative of chaos while “being fine on my own,” giving the listener a realistic interpretation of internal struggle while keeping a calm, cool, and collective face to the outside world. Beautiful storytelling with a unique arrangement.
Amanda Mayo, a.k.a. Slow Shudder, recently received her masters degree in music from Goldsmiths, University of London. She self-released two tracks under her Slow Shudder moniker and released singles with Paper Crane, Not Like That and Unspeakable Records before getting an opportunity to release with bitbird. A big accomplishment, well deserved. Another one of her big successes came with the release of Downtown Glow, a collaboration with up-and-coming producer from New York City, Demoda. The single has reached close to 350,000 streams on Spotify.
Ayre for Rejection will be part of Bitbird’s forthcoming compilation, Gouldian Finch 02, set to be released on Thursday, October 5th.
