One of music's greatest powers is the ability to bring people from all corners of the world together through the sheer energy of a record or sound. The Red Mirror — a collective who's members hail from L.A., Portland, Ohio, and the U.K — came together for exactly that: a shared love of music, and the drive to create their sound.
Today Red Mirror share their first group track "BENT" featuring Craig Xen via The FADER. Listen now down below.
The group — which consists of Fifty Grand, King Yosef, Kellbender, Ginseng, Hellion and Prxz — came together after separately amassing one billion streams on Spotify for their work with rap's buzzing young underground, including Ski Mask The Slump God, Rico Nasty, and most notably, the late, controversial XXXtentacion.
The track kicks off at full speed, with a booming 808 kick, a mean buzzsaw synth melody, and the group chanting a catchy, energizing hook. Midway through the record, however, the drums disappear, and an ethereal voice clocks in, almost screeching through a streaming synth filter.
""Bent" is our first group offering, and a song we’ve been excited about for a long time," group member Fifty Grand tells FADER. "It’s an experience from start to finish and was made mostly by sending stems back and forth. We look forward to the day we can all sit down in the same studio and make an album together.”
