This along with tasteful sound design and cutting edge bass takes the listener on a journey that weaves light and dark into one harmonious experience…

Spoken Bird – Blending poly-tempo, eclectic headnodic beats that captivate the listener, Spoken Bird takes his listeners on an auditory journey painting pictures on silence with sound waves. Prepare for full body vibratory orgasms as the bass waves wash over you, massaging mind, body and soul.
