Five years after the appearance of Abyss's debut single Mind Games, Naples producer Giuspeppe Morabtio (who's also released material on Lilith and Parquet Recordings) returns with a choice follow-up, Birdsong, featuring remixes by fellow Buzzin Fly' cohorts Snoretex and Flowers and Sea Creatures. Morabtio's “Birdsong” original sashays in with pounding drums, percussion, and bass throb, before a Latin-tinged piano and sexy vocal exhalations fill out the picture resplendently. The whole thing oozes a summery, late-night vibe in a track that would be as natural a fit for Ibiza as New York. The track alternates thereafter between breakdowns and lazer-focused propulsion, with the wordless vocal elements split between an almost subliminal female and more dominant male. Snoretex (Sam Willis) dishes out a remix whose keyboards first flicker dazedly before righting itself for a six-minute lesson in smooth'n'funky house. Willis lubricates the groove with slinky hi-hats and bass rumble until it becomes a rich and soulful jam that'll get bodies twitching whether they like it or not. Montreal outfit Flowers and Sea Creatures (singer-lyricist Graham Baxter and musician-producer Kosta Megalos) gives “Birdsong” an enveloping ambient makeover whose piano motif and billowing atmosphere feel like the perfect soundtrack for the morning-after comedown. Needless to say, it's solid stuff all the way around, so much so that one hopes it won't be another five years before the next Buzzin' Fly material from Abyss appears.
