Back To Mine with Bird of Mind

Birds of Mind is made up of Paris-based duo Alex H. and Adrian C. Alex studied filmmaking in NYC and picked up a passion for electronic music while traveling the globe. He now spends half his year DJing on the island of Mykonos and is inspired by being close to nature. Adrian was born into a Venezuelan family of classical music artists, studied the violin and piano at the Conservatory of Paris then made his way into musique concrète.

Together they compose music that is electronic but nourished by the exploration of organic sounds and ancient chants. Birds Of Mind will return to Get Physical in 2022 after debuting there in 2019, but before that comes this immersive new album. It is a spiritual, peaceful and loving record with a very natural presence.

They closed 2021 with the magically mellow ‘Journey’ through Kindisch, and we thought it was perfect to grab a stunning Back To Mine 10 from them…


Bach Partita No.6 in E minor, BWV 830
I think I have been listening to this partita of Bach almost everyday for many years. I use to come back from school, lay down in bed and close my eyes and fall asleep, when it was over I would wake up. Perfect for a power nap.

Mercedes Sossa – Duerme Mi Tripon 
It’s my mother’s favourite artist, in my childhood she was singing « Duerme mi tripon » so I could fall asleep. I often listen to it when we are on tour and I miss my family, it takes me back to my roots.

Demon – You Are High
This track really had a strong impact on our youth. It’s an anthem of the beggining of 2000’s French Touch. We made an edit that we played on the robot heart bus in Burning Man 2019. We were really proud to share our version of this French electronic gem on the playa.

Chet Baker – Almost Blue 
I really enjoy the vibe and atmosphere that Chet Baker creates in his songs. I also really love the angel voices appearing in the end and taking the song on a higher frequency. The idea of bringing emotions under color names, like the character is almost blue, almost happy, it’s a real romantic spleen.

David August – Epikur
Alex played this track at his birthday many years ago. There was something so new about it I was really blown away. It was so majestic, we were facing a sunset and it felt like everything was in slow motion.  This track really made me want to make electronic music and start our music project together.

Art Department – Without You 
I have something special for this track. 2012 was a big turn in my artistic life and when I heard Without you for the first time it immediately became a very strong influence in my music taste. The bass line is super sexy, the lyrics are very powerful and deep. Wish those guys never split up and kept making magic.

Parcel – Overnight 
I love this track. It has such a good energy, I can listen to it when I wake up, anytime through the day or night and it always puts me in a good mood. The sound design is produced by Thomas Bangalter  and you can really feel the daft punk touch in there.

The Beatles – Let It Be
Thought I would throw this song in there. It’s just majestic, I love every piece of it. The Beatles were the first real band I was constantly listening to since my mother is a huge fan. At home we had all their albums vinyls, tapes, cd just name it. Dont forget to watch the Documentary by Peter Jackson – it’s out on Disney.

Escape from New York – Fire in My Heart
This is a very special one.  I was in Ibiza going through my best friend father collection of old vinyls in the living room of his house and discovered this gem . This track is pure gold. Acid disco from 1984, so modern and so old school at the same time there is something timeless about this track. I was so happy when I found it, I spent the all week looking for a digital version of the track and finally found it on time for my set at Heart Ibiza.

Mulatu Astatke – Yegelle Tezeta
I love Ethiopian Jazz artist Mulatu Astatke, I discovered his music in the movie Broken Flowers by Jim Jarmusch. It’s super relaxing and the vocals are very deep. I always listen to his music when I work from home or when I travel.
