[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's Birdfeed exclusive comes from Portland's Drexler! -How long have you been creating music?I’ve been making music for about 10+ years. Started in high school with a cracked version of FL Studio and made some sample-heavy hip-hop stuff. Got serious about 3 years ago and put my love of house to the forefront. -What do you use to make your tracks?I’m using—dead serious here—the first version of Logic Pro 9. I’ve never upgraded it. Mostly use VSTs with obscure-ish samples peppered in. Looking to get some fun synth and modular toys this year, too. -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?I’d heard ‘Who’s Afraid of Detroit’ like a lot of people, but ‘Mr. Spock’ really caught my attention when it blew up blogs. Was lucky to meet Justin Jay in college too, so it’s continually been around in my life. -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?I think the world probably needs a Justin (Martin) x Justin (Jay) x Justin (me) collab! I’d also love to collab with J.Phlip (duh). Or maybe we make it J4? -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?Men In Black.National Treasure -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?My all-time fav might just be LCD Soundsystem’s farewell tour at the Hollywood Bowl. J.E.S.U.S. and Radiohead at Coachella were pretty tops, too. -If you could time travel, where and when would you go?100% would have to see some dinosaurs, that would be bananas IRL. Would also love to see what ancient Rome was all about or party with Salvador Dalí. -What species of bird best describes you and why?A Kakapo, because I too am flightless and nocturnal. -What does Dirtybird mean to you?Guaranteed good vibes with good people, and a consistent home of top-shelf underground music. There’s nothing quite like it and I couldn’t be more stoked to be a part of it.

Zds phase1
It’s been 4 years since we’ve had ZDS back on the label, and he returns with “Phase 1”, containing two huge singles featuring a couple well-known collaborators. “Sweat”’s funky, bumping ride features KE lending his infectious hip-house style vocals, coercing you to sing along while your body works and jerks to a soaked dancefloor. Next up, ZDS links with Dirtybird Player Will Clarke for “The Beat”, a relentless track reminiscent of the old Midwest jack tracks. Banging.

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 abeldejong
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's exclusive comes from The Netherland's Abel De Jong! -How long have you been creating music? I have been making music for like 9 years now. What do you use to make your tracks? I use FL Studio to make my tracks. -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird? 3-4 years ago on soundcloud, I use soundcloud to search for tracks to play in my gigs. -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most? Claude Vonstroke -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you? SHARKNADO 3 -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? I really don't know, i find it too difficult to compare different act's -If you could time travel, where and when would you go? 20 Years back in time, to buy bitcoins. -What species of bird best describes you and why? A Grey Goose, looks classy and makes u feel funky.   -What does Dirtybird mean to you? I think that Dirtybird is the freshest and original house label that's popping these days.

Birdfeed nomessin
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's track comes from UK's No Messin! -How long have you been creating music? I first downloaded a DAW about 4 years ago and have never looked back!-What do you use to make your tracks? I'm a logic man but very keen to check out Ableton and/or Reason at some point. -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird? I first stumbled across Claude when he first dropped "Who's Afraid of Detroit" more than a decade ago and found DB through him. -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most? I definitely can't chose just one! But I can narrow it down to Ardalan, Justin Martin or Kyle Watson. -If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you? Guy Ritchie's Snatch as my life is a just a series of unfortunate events ending in with a fight with a pikey. -What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? Still my all time favorite was the first time the Arcadia stage was unleashed on the world at Boomtown 2012 (UK). Absolutely blew my lid off! -If you could time travel, where and when would you go? A 90s Acid Rave would go down a RIGHT treat! -What species of bird best describes you and why? Common London Pigeon because they're dirty and will eat anything. -What does Dirtybird mean to you? DB offers the almost unique opportunity to producers who make quirky underground beats to still be heard by the masses and I am incredibly grateful!

Germanbrigante theopposite
We’re kicking off the first release on Dirtybird of 2018 with a killer EP from Spain’s German Brigante, “The Opposite”. German first showed up on our radar a couple years ago and we put out the “Brigante Chronicles”, invited him to play the Dirtybird Campout, and continue to be fans of his distinct tech-house sound that fits outside the normal conventions of the genre. Heavy bass notes set the tone on both the title track as well as “Keep Up”, and sound enormous on a sound system. German includes his unique production characters on each, adding to their expressive musical fingerprints and starting our year of music in a unique fashion.

Birdfeed petegraham
[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!

Dbc eastcoastcompilation final
Some birds fly South for the winter, especially with this cold snap going on right now! After three unbelievable years of the Dirtybird Campout at our West Coast home, we’re taking the show to Florida with our biggest lineup yet. For the cross-country journey, we packed 8 brand new tracks in the Dirtybird Campout East Coast Compilation from several of the artists that will be playing the Birdhouse stage during the weekend. Claude VonStroke teamed up with Bruno Furlan for one of the catchiest tracks ever, “The Book Is On The Table”—we dare you to try to keep it out of your head when you listen. Nick Monaco gives us some “Drama”, and we welcome Justin Jay back with his bouncy single “Oi Oi Oiiii”. Maximono’s “No Joke” is literally that, and BOT reminds us that “Different is Beautiful”. Vangelis Kostoxenakis provides the “Monkey Business”, and Dateless and his brother Lucati show us it’s all about “Team Work”. Dimiz & Baley’s “Raw Motion” was the track Claude dropped during the Family Set, and we couldn’t wait any longer to get this heater out. See you at Camp!

Birdfeed bumpugly
[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.

Db068 lefantome 1800
[BACK CATALOG] Claude VonStroke teams up with Jaw, lead singer of the notorious dOP crew for a trippy slab of modern funk. This marks the very first time VonStroke has worked with a singer and we think the results are great. Jaw's smooth falsetto harks back to singers like Curtis Mayfield and the backing track is filled with trademark Dirtybird flavor. The record is a slow building jam that builds into an almost church-like resolution filled with spiraling space echoes and organs that is sure to set off all the right rooms.

Birdfeed alexvin
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's track comes from Brazil's AlexVin! -How long have you been creating music? about 4 years.. but I’ve been DJ’ing since 1995 -What do you use to make your tracks? Ableton Live and my own vocal -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird? About a couple years when I met Bruno Furlan -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?

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!

Ryanforever nasty
We’ve had an epic year of music in 2017, and in years past we usually put out a collection of music for our New Years Special compilations. This year we’re switching it up and dropping just one final banger, Ryan Forever’s “Nasty”. If you were at our Dirtybird West Campout for the infamous Family Set, then you’re already familiar with this monster. After a steady stream of all-stars, Ryan flipped the vibe and dropped “Nasty” and the entire festival went completely bonkers.  As soon as we snapped back into reality from the campout we hit up Ryan the next week, signed the track, and invited him back for our East Coast campout in February. Have a great 2018!

Paymybills 1080
We always love welcoming new talent to Dirtybird, especially when it’s the new Vangelis Kostoxenakis “Pay My Bills” EP. The title track was sent in to us through our normal demo submission and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Low end rhythm, funky bassline, tough beats, quirky synths and a ghetto vocal repeating “you betta pay my bills, fool” on loop —all the elements to make one of those hot tracks that live outside of the trends. After falling in love with the first track, Vangelis sent us ‘Gifted Generation’, another one we instantly knew fit Dirtybird. Once again blending all the right bits but going much further on the weirdness - it takes the listener on a wild, loopy ride.

Birdfeed filthyfrench
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] Born in the muddy banks of the Seine river in Paris, Filthy French arrive at the Birdfeed nest with this 2-track "Chirp" EP, showing two different facets of their production style. The title track Chirp is a quirky and funky cut featuring an acidic drop so intense it might just melt your face off. Dirty Disco Bitch explores a techier side, featuring lo-fi hats, a greasy bassline and hypnotising synth.

 [BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] One of our biggest singles last year, Shiba San's "Up & Down" is already a Dirtybird classic. Dallas producer Left/Right sent in this remix to us and completely flipped it, taking it to a darker place and turning it into a low-end heavy breaks track. A secret weapon just for our Birdfeed family.

Another secret weapon exclusively for our Birdfeed members! This track had the world talking after we retweeted a short video of Justin Martin playing it at Shambala, and then a few days later at HARD Summer. Once we found out it was from our 'Dirtyboy' from Brazil, Bruno Furlan, we knew this would be perfect for our Birdfeeders!

We love the new version and thought you would too, so here it is as an exclusive download for our Birdfeed members!

Dakar woobly
There seems to be a lot of heat coming from south of the equator lately, and our next Birdfeed Exclusive release adds to the flames with a smokin’ single from Brazil’s Dakar. As owner of the Clap7 label and releases on labels like Snatch, LouLou, and This Ain’t Bristol, in a short time Dakar has been rapidly making a name for himself. We’re happy to welcome him to Dirtybird with the infectious bassline of "Woobly", one that will surely fit snug in any of your sets.

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
