About Airbird

Airbird is the solo moniker of Joel Ford, a Brooklyn-based indie electronic artist known for several collaborative projects, including Tigercity, Games/Ford & Lopatin (with Oneohtrix Point Never's Daniel Lopatin), and Ejecta/Young Ejecta. His work as Airbird drifts between dreamy, sparkling downtempo synth-pop and ecstatic, neon dance beats (sometimes during the same song), with detailed production flourishes and his own electronically manipulated falsetto vocals. Airbird debuted in 2011 with the release of a split cassette with Megafortress, as well as the "City vs. Mountains" 12" single on Software (Daniel Lopatin's label). This was followed in 2012 by the Trust EP, also on Software. Following these releases, Airbird remixed Chrome Canyon and Korallreven in 2013, and began working with Napolian (Ian Evans), an experimental hip-hop producer signed to Software. The two debuted with a collaborative single ("In the Zone") in 2013, and a full-length album (Mr. Foolish) appeared on Cascine in 2015. ~ Paul Simpson
