Artist commentary:

RowBird:

This is the first time i did a theme for a specific character by myself. It was harder than i expected, i did know what kind of vibe i would want to give it; hiphop/breakbeat with an oldschool vibe to it, something that would remind you of tony hawk pro skater. But i would make it very melodic with heavy 8bit-like influences to better suit her gamer girl character. Choosing a chord progression also was quite a challenge to me, it had to suit her character. After playing around and switching up orders i ended up with something that just felt right.

The first part represents hir first impression, the downtempo part is dedicated to her more serious 'libra side'. In the end it will all come together and really emphasise the radical personality she has created for herself.

The DJ scratches in the track reminded me of some kind of golden age of hip hop/Blade Runner fusion. And when I think techno neon late 80s grunge, I think Latula Pyrope.
