[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.
If you’re familiar with Dirtybird, then chances are you know that we hold the fast-paced, rhythmic, and usually very explicit style of music called ‘Juke’ or ‘Ghetto House’ close to our heart. There’s something about the lo-fi 808 & 909 bangers with nasty vocals and crackling snares that does it for us, and you’ll still hear originals from the era worked into many of the Dirtybird’s dj sets. A lost art, you don’t hear many original new Juke vocals that are as timeless as the classics from the past.
Submitted as a random demo, Claude VonStroke was looking for some secret weapons for our two-day Detroit BBQ festival this Summer, and came across one named ‘Stripper’ from an artist duo named Fancy Fux, featuring Katy Got Bandz on vocals. He tested it out at at our pop-up afterparty, and people lost it. Less than 15 seconds of that moment was captured on video, and in days thousands of people were clamoring to find out what it was and how they can get their hands on it. The reaction sealed the deal…. we had to release this record.
There’s also a certain Dirtybird Player that we can admit is the most obsessed with this style, and we knew we couldn’t put it out without giving him a go at it. Sure enough, Kill Frenzy stepped up and knocked it out of the park with a remix to complement this future classic, and bonus mixes that you can only get on the Birdfeed.
We kick 2017 of with a stunning single from Hamburg’s SPQH. One of those tracks where it’s not about how many elements you have but how well you use them, this deep house gem is subtle, yet demands attention with it’s bass stabs and beautifully placed arpeggiated synth.
The perfect release to ease into the new year with a fresh “State of Mind”.
[BACK CATALOG] Just having wrapped up our epic HATCHED compilation, we rolled right into this as our first original EP of 2012. It seems like we've been blessed because Shadow Child has delivered an incredibly strong debut release. "String Thing" was given to me with support by Eats Everything and I've already seen it completely rip up several rooms on tour last month. I thought that was going to be the A-side killer and then "Rustic Chip" came in which I think could possibly be even better. The production style is kind of like old school Solid Groove meets drum n bass and I'm really digging this record. Super-fat, well-mixed sounds put in all the right places, this stuff really works. Best, VonStroke"
2016 has been a stand-out year of releases on Dirtybird, including the launch of both our sister label Dirtybird Select, as well our subscription service, the Birdfeed. But the year isn’t over just yet, and it’s not in our nature to just sit on the bench and ride it out, especially as we’ll be ringing in 2017 on a weekend. So we decided to double-down on our end of year special, and present 10 brand new originals to end the year with a bang.
Featuring nearly a dozen artists across an array of genres, the second volume of “The New Years Special” includes Dirtybird staples Walker & Royce & Sage Armstrong, newest members of the family Dateless, Sirus Hood and Ciszak, and household names Roland Clark & Weiss.
It wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t debut a few new artists as well, so we added some breakthrough tracks from future talents Egopool, 6ftshort, Slow Jam and Elevator Music.
See you on the other side of 2017..... P.S. Birdfeeders......Stop by the Chirp today at 3pm PST for a Justin Martin AMA :))
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] No matter what holiday you celebrate, it's always nice to give and receive this time of year. We want to help ring in the season with some special editions of a couple of good 'ol Santa Claude's greatest hits just for our Birdfeed members. The UK's Cal Johnstone re-edits the timeless "Who's Afraid of Detroit", and Italy's MAGNVM! reworks the classic "Deep Throat". Happy holidays from the Birdfeed!
One of our most beloved members of the Dirtybird Family, Shiba San debuted on the label nearly three years ago with “Okay”, and it still remains one of our biggest tracks ever. Since then he’s been a regular at our Dirtybird events around the country, and has made a steady appearance on the label with his penchant for producing music that not only makes you move your feet but also hard to get out of your head. Shiba sent us “Up and Down” over the Summer, and it quickly became a go-to track for many sets on the Summer circuit, with fans rushing the stage and writing in to us trying to find out what it was. Originally set to come out on its own, Shiba then sent us “You Know What?”, and we knew we couldn’t turn away its thick bassline and unique synth melody.
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] A little something to say "Thanks" to our Birdfeeders! Mainly known for his main room hitters, ghetto jams and tech bombs, Kill Frenzy shows his softer side with 'Last Night Slow Jam', a special treat just for our Birdfeed members. Enjoy!
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!
Wood Holly & Sage Armstrong teamed up for the booty-shakin single "Ass Out", which originally came out on our New Year's Special at the end of last year. Wood made this special edit just for his set at HARD this year, and features a touch of 303. We love the new version and thought you would too, so here it is as an exclusive download for our Birdfeed members!
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.
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.

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.
