[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's new one is "Fleek", from Chicago's Torrfisk! How long have you been creating music?- For about 24 years now. What do you use to make your tracks?- Studio one 3.5, Elektron Octatrack, Tr-8s, Korg monologue, Abstrakt Avalon Bassline, Arturia Mini and Micro brute, Juno 106, SP-12, a squeaky toy, and jar with some sticks. How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?- When I heard my friend drop Shadow Child's "String Thing". Been following ever since. Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?- Will Clarke or Sage Armstrong. If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?- Rudy. Not because it’s about a guy who really worked hard and had a lot of heart in order to achieve his goals, but because I often dream about sacking Vince Vaughn. What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?- When I was a kid, I had a choice of going to the Dr. Dre 'Up in Smoke Tour', or The new Kids on the Block show…. Guess which one I chose? Let’s just say I was hanging tough. If you could time travel, where and when would you go? - About 25 years into the future. I want to see what kind of toys they have there for making music. What species of bird best describes you and why?- A Noisy Miner. I am vocal species with a large range of songs, and I form coalitions for specific activities such as mobbing predators. Plus, that is a badass name for a bird. What does Dirtybird mean to you?- A place to push the boundaries of creating music. A place where one can recreate themselves, or set a precedent for music to come.

Catzndogs thefeelingfactory
Catz ’N Dogz are some of our oldest extended Dirtybird Family, spanning multiple EPs, a couple albums, some remixes, and we even presented their very first release as ‘Catz 'N Dogz’ as they transitioned from their old 3 Channels alias in 2007. It's been over 4 years since they've been on the label, and we're ecstatic to have them back with "The Feelings Factory".  "Fine Feeling" features the legendary vocalist Robert Owens, and sounds like a classic deep house track from the late 90's when no one called it deep house, they just danced to it all night in warehouses.  "Factory Settings" includes additional production from London's Joseph Ashworth, and from the first note to the last its filled with driving intensity and an ascending cacophony of rhythms and voices. Welcome back fellas, we missed you.

[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] Brazil's DJ Glen returns to the label and makes an appearance on the Birdfeed with"Afraid of Boogie Mafioso"! -How long have you been creating music? I ve been creating music since my first contact with a DAW, when I was a kid in late 90s with legendary ACID music.My brother used to be a dj this time and teached me the basics about music and i found  this software for free on the CD recorder I bought to make some money selling pirate cds to buy BMX bicyle parts. -What do you use to make your tracks?Now I use Ableton Live as a DAW and my soundfonts are very diverse. From my percussion instruments to my analog synths like Doepfer, Korg, Arturia and of coarse, my voice and sexy brazilian accent! -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?I am a vinyl lover and collector, I dont know exactly what was my first DB vinyl but I guess it was Maetriks one, a guy that I loved around 2005/ 2006. After this I picked DB as one of my favorites vinyl labels, and now I have like 40 titles, and the last one, has one track from me, was very special. -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?I have a nice connection with Justin Martin, one of most insane b2b I already had in my life was with him in a historic night in one of most famous underground clubs in Brazil, and I think he is the most talented Bird.I also love Claude, Ardalan, Christian Martin, Mija, Bruno Furlan (we made it), Danny Kolk (under construction), Ciszak and the guy who listen everything, Deron Delgado.But I really like to have an experience in studio to collaborate, collabs via internet are so boring. -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?Ahhahahah, very nice question! Today I feel like Mad Max because here in Brazil is happening a TruckDrivers Riot that blocked all the supplies to the cities for all the country, and I have no gas for one week, one week more and I will feel like Z Nation, when the food gone. -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?Rage Against The Machine, Sao Paulo, 2010. I started to love music with these guys, and for me that day I realized I could die happy. -If you could time travel, where and when would you go?The day my little son born, was in my own bedroom, a super special night which gave me the most important thing in my life. -What species of bird best describes you and why?I don’t know a lot about birds, but when I lived in Rio de Janeiro there was a lot of Toucans around my house, I always had been freeze when I see one of those. Most beautiful ever! -What does Dirtybird mean to you?It’s a model to how to do it proper, is not about money, its about love, music, and something you feel from inside, you know. When I touched in Campout for the first time this year, I could see lots of guys who thinks and acts like me, and it is something many times very hard to find, I found it by a secondary language called music. Dirtybird is a family for life.

Latesquare
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] Out of San Francisco, Late Eighties' newest release "Abba Zabba" is on this week's feed! How long have you been creating music? In some shape or form for about 16 years, my dad got me a drum set when I was 12 and I've been making noise ever since. What do you use to make your tracks? Mainly Pro Tools, sometimes Ableton for triggering loops and arranging edits but I spend 95% of my time in Pro Tools. I'm using Native Instruments, Battery and Massive mostly, and a lot of Waves plugins. For drum samples I've managed to frankenstein together a pretty big library to pull from but one of these days I should probably use Splice, I've been hearing a lot of good things. How and when did you first discover Dirtybird? A friend out of LA turned me on to Dirtybird sometime between 2013 and 2014 when I was just starting to get my feet wet as a DJ. I started going to the quarterly events at the Mezzanine sometime that year. The Treasure Island BBQ in 2014 was when I really got hooked, the weather was perfect and I danced my ass off. Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?In the studio, Ardalan -- his productions have so many unique elements and his mixes are clear and dynamic. On the decks, J.Phlip -- I've learned a lot from listening to her play, she is always pushing boundaries. If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?Freak, Pray, Love What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at Madison Square Garden -- Stevie Nicks made a guest appearance as well. They tore the place down, it was incredible. If you could time travel, where and when would you go?I'd be a recording engineer working in Los Angeles recording studios from the early 1960's into the 1970's -- there were tons of opportunities to contribute to classic recordings and witness legendary talent. What species of bird best describes you and why? Cockatoo - I can dance and I do pretty good impressions What does Dirtybird mean to you?Dirtybird has been a total undercurrent of my life since I first started going to the parties. The records coming out on the label and the records they were playing opened the floodgates for me in terms of house music...it was like the blue pill. Their ethos of fun and inclusivity gave me a feeling freedom without judgement --you can sound how you want to sound and dance however you want to dance and meet a bunch of freaks in the process. Freedom, fun, and family -- that's Dirtybird to me.

Stevedarko friedorfertilized 3000
Steve Darko’s “Fried or Fertilized” was originally supposed to only be released on our Birdfeed. But like a high school senior going straight to the NBA, sometimes tracks work so well on the dancefloor that they need to be moved to its own release on the main label.After extensive road testing from Claude and one of the biggest records at our Space Miami party and Coachella, this is one of those songs. We also added “Thumbs” featuring Uncle Kev, which Claude has boldly declared his favorite track of 2018 so far. It starts out with a moody, low end bounce and Kev’s pitched down vocal before breaking down and coming back with a bit higher pace and some added funk.Welcome to the big leagues Steve.

Escapade 3000
Walker & Royce continue to ride high on their debut album, “Self Help”, receiving critical acclaim and clocking miles on their worldwide tour. Fellow Dirtybird Player, Ardalan, also continues his ascent as a ‘Bird to watch' — breaking out with key productions and sold out dates along his Ardy Pardy tour. In between the madness, these guys managed to get together to make some music and, ‘Wow’ is an understatement of our reaction. With their “Escapade EP”, this trio combined their individual sounds to create a new, mutant supersound that is familiar yet out of this world. “Iz Tha Shit” is the perfect embodiment of what these guys can do. Trippy vocals accent a rolling bounce under wobbly and elongated bass notes, featuring distinct characteristics from each of these artists. “Turn It Around” starts a bit deeper before taking a turn into something trippy, funky, weird and amazing. The ‘Escapade EP” is the tip of the iceberg for these two (or rather three).

How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?James: When I first moved to Florida in 2017. Ashley had a big flag in the studio room with an egg on it. I did some research and realized I knew a lot of the artists signed to DB, but never really knew much about the label itself.Ashley: On my first Holy Ship sailing. Everyone was nuts over Claude & the birds. That really opened up my ears to the house world! Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?James: Claude because you know....its Claude, but Walker & Royce would be a fun duo to work with. I really love their unique style, and sound they have. We are also starting something with the Doctor Danny KolkAshley: J. Mart- He really flexed his melodic skills with Hello Clouds.

Cvs mybae web
Our boss Claude VonStroke is the busiest guy we know. When he’s not traveling the world or curating an event, he’s in the studio every day putting in hours upon hours, relentless in perfecting his craft. He’s had a slew of hits the past couple years in the form of remixes and collaborations, and now with the “Walay (My Bae)” EP, Claude gets back to some inventive and somewhat “out of the box” solo works.The title song leads with a melodic riff and an funky vocal that sounds like a defective cyborg is proclaiming love for his partner, “Walay.” This quasi-human uses the slang “My Bae” to try and pass for human and we almost believe in his passion. The sound harkens back to old classic rave tracks but also pushes very modern production techniques.On the flip, “Raw Nerve” is an emotional exploration in both sounds and lyrics. A melancholy VonStroke dives deep into his insecurities and fears with sonically mutated lyrics like “I’m feeling so sad, I’m feeling real bad today. When I see you on the street I don’t want to compete.”  You can feel the social instability oozing out of the vocal only to come back at the close with a violently hard bassline embodying the personal angst and frustration that goes along with not “fitting in".

No particular order. -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?Law Abiding Citizen -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?The most important one was Electric Zoo in 2011. I had never been to a festival before and 3 days of the biggest names in dance music had me hooked. -If you could time travel, where and when would you go?Easy. I would go the frontier during the wild west and be a cowboy. -What species of bird best describes you and why?Pigeon (I’m from NYC) -What does Dirtybird mean to you?Right now, Dirtybird is the most important dance label in the US and it’s sound has taken over the global house and techno scene. It's easy to see why with one of a kind events, a growing group of dedicated fans, and incredible music that consistently tops charts and sets new trends.

Willclarke takeaseat (1)
By now you're familiar with our wonderful friend and Dirtybird Player, Will Clarke, so we'll spare you the introduction. "Take A Seat" is a track we've been keeping tight in our back pocket for quite a while now, waiting for the right moment to unleash it. An implacable beat and a ferocious rhythm melds with a simple, yet lasting vocal and a bit of acid, prompting us to think back to the simple bass ideas from the UK Garage days that worked so well.  We think it's one of Will's best to date, and considering how much outstanding music he's produced, we suggest you take a listen.

Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most? If I had the opportunity to collaborate with any Dirtybird artist, It'd definitely would be Billy Kenny. He was the reason why I got so engrossed into Dirtybird - his sounds are so unique and his character matches. I think he'd be a fun person to work with! If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?If my entire life was a movie, the title that'd best suit me would definitely be "Hangover" - Just because I tend to find myself at a party almost every weekend. What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?The best concert I've ever been to? mmm this is a tough one! Seeing Stephan Bodzin perform at Truth Nightclub was definitely one for the books! But Ultra South Africa really does know how to treat their crowd - especially when it comes to the Resistance stage. If you could time travel, where and when would you go?If I could time travel, I'd go back to the 1977 in Chicago when house music first started. It would've been interesting to see how the genre of music first started and developed into what it is today. What species of bird best describes you and why?I'd say that I'm an owl. I tend to stay up until the late hours of the morning whether I'm playing at events, working on projects or binge watching a series on Netflix. What does Dirtybird mean to you? Dirtybird holds a special place in my heart because of it's main focus, and that's pushing out quality music!

[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's Birdfeed track comes from UK's Ed Lee! How long have you been creating music? I brought my first studio computer with Logic 7 around 2005. I've recently been trying to install habits to make music daily. Greatness comes from persistence. What do you use to make your tracks? Ableton these days been a user since 5 but I've been feeling the urge to try something new. I like the look of Bitwig and moving to Linux, just to change up my workflow. How and when did you first discover Dirtybird? I was working at covert records at the time and I was going through the new releases. I heard Claude VonStroke's "Deep Throat" and I remember thinking it was such a fun record, with that strange burp noise going into the riff of the song. I've been a follower of the label ever since. Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most? Hard to name just one but Dirtybird has had some great UK artists. Eats Everything, Shadow Child, more recently Will Clarke... If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you? Trainspotting, always trying to name that obscure sample in a song or train spotting random tracks in general. What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? Seeing Nile Rodgers live with chic was pretty special. They are are all such skilled musicians. The catalog of songs he's made is immense. If you could time travel, where and when would you go? I'd travel back to the warehouse in Chicago and witness firsthand the beginnings of acid house with the legendary Frankie Knuckles. Then going back to see the premiere of Back To The Future in a DeLorean :) What species of bird best describes you and why? The hummingbird comes to mind, as it's know for making a unique sound.

Also I reckon I could get some pizza when he’s not looking. -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?Clockwork Orange Groundhog day, Groundhog day, Groundhog day, Groundhog day… -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?The Prodigy, If you have never seen them live i suggest you do… its the most insane experience / concert I’ve ever been to... Twice. -If you could time travel, where and when would you go?I would go back to the 90's to my home town, to stop my mum badly cutting my fringe so short. -What species of bird best describes you and why?Ostrich - The world's largest flightless bird, with three stomachs. Similar to me sitting in the studio eating far too much and flapping for no reason. -What does Dirtybird mean to you?Music has always been first and foremost in my life and Dirtybird came along when I was influentially lost as an artist--it was the inspiration which guided me to make the sounds i create today… and what a humble pleasure releasing tracks on my favourite label. I'm not sure what i would do without the music, events, artists, fans, socks and snapbacks…it brings people together and this is why theres such a great community. Keep feeding the Birds!

Birdfeed ernesto
This week's Birdfeed exclusive comes from Miami's E.R.N.E.S.T.O.! -How long have you been creating music?I've been DJing for as long as I can remember. I was lucky to be brought up in a family that enjoyed electronic music, so there were Sven Väth and Daft Punk CDs around the house. I got serious about producing five years ago, when playing other peoples tracks just wasn't enough anymore. -What do you use to make your tracks?I use Ableton, Bass Station II, a couple of drum machines and a cheap Shure mic that I use to record most of my vocals. -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?I heard String Thing by Shadow Child, and it really caught me by surprise, it was the kind of music I didn't even know I needed. From then on it was all Dirtybird all the time. -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?Gotta go with the legend DJ Funk. He's had huge influence on me, I try to fit that old school juke with breaks and the latin sounds of my upbringing. -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?"Catch Me If You Can" is pretty accurate, never in one place for too long. -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?Sónar 2007. A crazy Ed Banger showcase with all the heavy hitters, from Justice to Mehdi. -If you could time travel, where and when would you go?I'd go to the late 70's and catch a prime Frankie Knuckles set at the Warehouse. -What species of bird best describes you and why?Troupial, just cause I'm Venezuelan. -What does Dirtybird mean to you?Dirtybird is essential to me, musically it's a space for the crazy beats that I love, and as a brand, it brings together likeminded people who don't take themselves too seriously. I think it's every producer's dream to be part of this family and I'm truly honored to have my name next to the artists who've inspired me so much.

Birdfeed mikemcfly (1)
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's Birdfeed exclusive comes from the Netherland's Mike Mcfly. -How long have you been creating music?I've been making music, on and off for over a decade. I started with French House believe it or not, switched to hiphop for a while, and since a year or two, I have been solely concentrating on making bass and tech house tracks. -What do you use to make your tracks?I've always been an in the box kind of guy, so Ableton Live, a lot of stock plugins and a bunch of VSTis, such as Massive, Sylenth and Serum do just fine for me. -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?I first discovered Dirtybird through Kill Frenzy actually, I was so infatuated with his record "All Night Long", that I had to find more of this stuff. I had known about Claude VonStroke and Justin Martin for a while, but for some reason I never dug into the label until I heard that record. Of course the back catalog was like discovering a big old chest of gold. It really inspired me to go down this route. -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?I would love to work with Claude one day. When I listen to his productions, I am in awe of how he always seems to make the right decisions. To not overcomplicate things, but keep it super interesting and put out the vibes. He looks like a fun guy to be around as well. Well the whole Dirtybird crew does actually! -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?That's a tough one! I know "Into The Wild" really speaks to me, particularly when I am feeling melancholy. The main character is on this epic journey to see what really matters (at least to him), and I guess that does apply to me as well. -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?I've not been to many actually. I think only one, when I was like 11, my mom took me to a Backstreet Boys concert for some reason haha. I guess I was a big fan of them back in the day? What ever happened to those guys? -If you could time travel, where and when would you go?I'd go back to when I was about sixteen and share this quote of Jim Carrey with myself. "You can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love." Or is that a little too self important? -What species of bird best describes you and why?I don't know honestly, I guess an eagle, as I want to soar and fly one day! -What does Dirtybird mean to you?A lot. I set my goals on releasing a record with you guys for a long time now, and I am so glad I did. For me personally, to get the tap from you guys, felt really good, because you guys have incredible taste in music, and I dig practically every record you put out. Getting wonderful confirmation meant for me, that what I am doing is, well, justified.

[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's track comes from England's Pete Graham! -How long have you been creating music? 6 years maybe? Whilst I started out with collabs, I have more recently begun to do more solo work. That said, I have some great collabs in the pipeline with some of your own artists! (Dirtybird) -What do you use to make your tracks? Logic 9, although I have just pre-ordered Ableton 10. I'm excited to try something new! -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird? Oh man, must have been years ago! I remember randomly stumbling across "beat that bird with a bat" and thinking how weird it was - I loved it! -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most? I used to work a lot with Chris Lorenzo and it was so much fun! We made a track called Dorothy's Forrest using samples from the Wizard of Oz and man it just took your head off! Later, we made a sequel track called Dorothy's Armpit. We found this hilarious as we could imagine people requesting it and confusing the local DJs. When it got signed, the label changed its name (see if you can find it). We had always planned to make a third track but never got round to it. I would like to finish what we started! -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you? I think John Wick... My wife thinks Lady and the Tramp. -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? Before Kanye was...Kanye... he was amazing! I saw him at an intimate club straight after College Dropout was released. -If you could time travel, where and when would you go? Easy. Jurassic Park is one of THE best films ever made. I would live it! -What species of bird best describes you and why? I think the majestic, speedy & deadly Peregrine Falcon..my wife thinks a Puffin... my brother thinks the Great Tit. -What does Dirtybird mean to you? I love the boldness & quirkiness of the music, but more importantly the sense of community and family between the fans and the artists themselves. In the years I've been working in the music industry, anyone I've met from the Dirtybird camp has just been so so nice, which can be rare these days! About 6 years ago, I was living my life as you do and checked my emails and nearly fell off my chair! It was the big guy asking about Marina Gasolina for DB! I called Loz and we were both so excited, but unfortunately nothing could happen other than a free download with DB because of the sample used. We both agreed that one day it would happen and I've finally caught up!

[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's exclusive track comes from a familiar name to Dirtybird, London's Bump Ugly! -How long have you been creating music? I've been making music for about 5 years now. First in a duo but recently solo. -What do you use to make your tracks? Logic Pro for life! -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird? So this is an interesting one actually. Who's Afraid of Detroit was actually one of the first Deep/ Tech House tracks I ever downloaded when I was about 15! So 8 years ago now. -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most? Oh wow, there are so many I would love to collab with. Would have to be between Will Clarke and Ardalan I'd say. -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you? The Good, The Bad and The Ugly! -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? Another tricky one. So I was at Secret Garden Party a few years back at The Drop stage, it was the last morning and the sun was rising, and this husband and wife duo who I'd never heard of and can't remember the name of, played this INSANE house set. It was really special. -If you could time travel, where and when would you go? I would love to go to 1960s America, for the style and the music. The Rolling Stones man! -What species of bird best describes you and why? A dodo. I know my dumbass would go extinct if I were a bird, I'm quite accident prone haha. -What does Dirtybird mean to you? So I know I'm only new to the label, but there is definitely a family vibe within Dirtybird, I feel like it really let's it's artists express their wackiness, and in a scene which can sometimes be too cool for its own good, that is a huge asset.

Birdfeed lucati
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] Happy New Year! Our resolution for 2018 is to give you one release a week exclusively to our Birdfeeders. We're kicking it off with an EP from Lucati, "Whistling Duck". -How long have you been creating music? I've been making music for 8 years. There's a certain moment when everything clicks, like your confidence in your music, your mixing and mastering. That happened in 2017. -What do you use to make your tracks? I lean Ableton, and only use arrangement view. Some of my go-to plug-ins are Massive, Serum, and the Waves Suite. I love sampling old records for kicks, vocals and basslines, helps me get the idea off the ground. -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird? I discovered Dirtybird when Mr. Spock by Justin Martin & Ardalan made waves. I ran a blog at the time and remember writing a full page review full of kudos and compliments on how brilliant that House track is. Hooked ever since. -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most? CVS would be legendary. Justin Martin would be emotional and beautiful. Bruno Furlan would be groovy as funk. -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you? YOLO: A tale of Reincarnation -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? Dirtybird Campout 2016 left a serious mark. It was raw, dirty, and non-stop. The Martin Brothers Drum & Bass set felt like I was in movie. Can't wait to attend East Coast Campout 2018 (my brother Dateless is playing!). -If you could time travel, where and when would you go? If I could time travel, I'd travel back to Ryan Seacrest's office in 2007 and slap the shit out of him for even thinking about creating Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Hopefully that would persuade him to change plans and never air that drool. -What species of bird best describes you and why? The Duck probably fits best. I love the water, I love eating bread, and I've been with my girl for many mating seasons. -What does Dirtybird mean to you? Dirtybird is the Research & Development center of House music. To be apart of such a forward thinking label and community means everything to me. They have the greatest fans in the world, with the purest motives. It's all about the music. As it should be.

Birdfeed steadyrock
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] We received this demo of Steady Rock from Bruno Furlan, who emailed us excited about a brand new artist he recently discovered and knew we would too. Claude tested it out the biggest way possible—by opening his set at Dirtybird Campout West Coast with it. Steady Rock just so happened to be at the festival and heard his track being played, and the next day he ran into Claude at one of the many Campout activities and told him that was his song. Claude signed it right there, and now here it is for you. And that is how things happen sometime. Merry Christmas to the best fans in the world!

Gbrigante chronicles digirelease
German Brigante has been on our radar for a while, as we’ve fallen in love with his moody yet dancefloor friendly sound. Don’t let the name fool you though—his music sounds like he could be from Berlin but he’s based in Spain. After receiving a few demos it was hard to pick a favorite, so we signed a full EP, “Chronicles”. Fresh off his critically acclaimed album for Get Physical, he follows up with three brilliant tracks that feature his unique sound that we can’t get enough of. “Noose” is a monster with a rumbling low end bassline and the right touch of pads to keep it moving. “The Brigante Chronicles” goes in a dark direction with a sustained bass that you can feel in your bones. He rounds it out with “Samoa”, which is a no frills bomb—jacking beats, rolling bass, and vocal bits that work anytime of the night. As if that wasn’t enough, we've also included the bonus track “Hey What’s Up" exclusively for our Birdfeed subscribers!

The DIRTYBIRD BBQs have become something I look forward to almost more than anything else we do at the label. The special daytime sets allow for more risk taking and more bass music to sneak into the house music that usually gets played at night. I’m really looking forward to Gril$on cooking me a burger this summer and rocking out with the fans. Check out these great tracks that range all the way from really funny to serious ass shakers. - Claude VonStroke

The new dirtybird compilation is loaded with 11 great tunes I have been collecting for over 6 months. Most notably, the Shiba San "OKAY" record has absolutely been destroying every dance floor known to man. We have lots of big birds like Justin Martin, Catz ‘N Dogz & Justin Jay on this, plus a ton of great newcomers and friends making appearances. The dirtybird BBQ was founded as a small get together in Golden Gate Park thirteen years ago. We've had the same core line-ups and even the same chef, Grillson, since the beginning. But three years ago, the free party in the park got too big and our permit was pulled. The city of San Francisco could no longer handle the amount of people showing up to the event. Ever since then we have been trying to think of way to bring back the vibe of the BBQ park party. This year we finally put together a team that is able to take the BBQ party all across North America and Europe. We will be starting in Miami and ending in San Francisco so make sure to come grill and chill with us sometime this year. This compilation is a celebration of the O.G. dirtybird BBQ vibe. I hope you enjoy the music. Love, VonStroke
