Californian duo Norin & Rad have set the scene on fire over the past few years. Their fusion of genres, from uplifting trance to electro house, has been a hit with the biggest DJs in the world and it looks set to continue with their latest track, Bird Is The Word.
The title may be shared by that oh-so-annoying track famously featured in Full Metal Jacket and Family Guy, but the similarity ends there. It’s another fine example of mixing up different styles, starting with a minimal electro-house vibe and a catchy synth riff, it gradually gains energy over the course of a few minutes before finally dropping into something very different. You’d be forgiven for thinking it was a whole new track–a calm and serene build that slowly starts to reveal the full gravity of what Norin & Rad are capable of. The drop is full on big-room trance that effortlessly works in the synth riff heard in the intro.
Bird Is The Word is out now on Anjunabeats and if you want to catch the duo live, they are about to embark on a North American tour, with 12 dates across the US & Canada between now and September, while also managing to squeeze in two shows in Ibiza and the UK.
