Release
Thatshot insta1080x1080
Steve Darko has quickly made an impact with the Dirtybird flock with his unique production talent - kicking it off with his viral hit ‘Fried or Fertilized’, to his latest collab with VNSSA on ‘Wavy’. He’s back again with a new EP, “That’s Hot”. The title track features Big J & oonagi and is a quirky and fun kaleidoscope of sounds and bass that fills a groove. The second track “I Miss your Face” features oonagi and Uncle Kev and is one of the most uncanny tracks we put out this year, and also one of our favorites. Spooky and mysterious come to mind when trying to describe it, but it’s best if you just press play and soak it in.
Release
Mrgood insta1080x1080
Ardalan’s ‘Mr. Good’ LP offers an emotional look into the heart and mind of a young artist. It’s a coming of age tale that tracks Ardalan as he figures out his sound and creative identity. The story unfolds across eleven tracks documenting Ardalan’s search for analog perfection. The intricate sound design comes from a collection of hardware Ardalan has built over the years. There are no generic basslines or sample packs involved.  Ardalan reaches all the way back to early 2000s while updating the sound with modern mixdowns and clever production tricks. The album is weird yet danceable, classic yet futuristic.   After watching Ardalan develop his sound and musical career over the years, we're proud to see him turn in this forward-thinking record that pushes his sound to the future.

Release
Silentfury insta1080x1080
Thousands of demos come in every month. Claude listens to all of them because people like Shiba San, Fisher, Julio Bashmore, Eats Everything, and Catz ’n Dogz have all come out of these files. The latest discovery is a track by Plastic Robots called “Silent Fury”. What seems like a simple beat all the sudden hammers down with a big sound that and surprises the dance-floor but also refrains from going over the top. This track is perfect for those DJs who are looking for cool big room material that isn't cheesy.
Release
Jokerjungle 3000
Very few artists make us as excited about music as Cour T. So far every single demo has been signed by VonStroke and he’s only 17 years old! His new track “Joker Jungle” is unique, featuring a rubbery synth patch that bounces on top of an extremely funky rhythm. Just like his previous release “Black Magic,” the track sticks out and changes the mood of any set, instantly creating a sultry and strange tone. As a cherry on top, we enlisted Spanish heavyweight Dennis Cruz for remix duties. You can expect to hear a lot more from Cour T. on Dirtybird for years to come.

Ardalan cantwait final
“I Can’t Wait,” is the first single from Ardalan's debut album, 'Mr. Good,' which perfectly encapsulates the LP’s dynamic. The track’s poignant melodies and striking vocal convey a sense of isolation felt when one’s passion and goals outweigh their personal and emotional upkeep.  Ardalan offers the track as a fitting first listen of the record.

We used to sit in our bedrooms making Hip Hop beats all day. So nothing’s changed really except that our sound is more electronic nowadays haha! -What do you use to make your tracks? We started with Hip Hop eJay 2, Magix Music Maker, then Cool Edit Pro, Fruity Loops, Cubase and now Ableton with Push 2.

Release
Slink 3000
After a year filled with lots of collaborations and remixes, Claude VonStroke drops his solo EP, “Slink.” The track features a twisted, funky double bassline highlighted by a catchy original vocal that sounds like it could have come from an 80s female rapper. On the flip side, the after-hours anthem, “Please Oh Please Oh Please” is a rolling techno burner with inventive percussion and sound design. The breakdown features a very strange conversation with the crowd about what they will receive on the night for their participation.

Birdfeed rebuke thepipe remix
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's track comes from the winner of our Native Instruments remix competition we did of Rebūke's "The Pipe".

First melodica, then accordion in a music school andfinally I decided to become a Rockstar, so I learned e-guitar. Producing electronic music was morelike an accident.

My licks were shitty, but I got more and more interested inarranging a track. -What do you use to make your tracks?I use Ableton Live 10. I was convinced right away. Most of the tracks I make are all done with Abletonstock. Awesome piece of software! -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?I think it was at a pre-party and I was the driver. A friend of mine played “LEZGO” right before wewanted to leave.

Justinjay cashmoney 3000x3000
Justin Jay is one of the artists we plucked out of our general demo submissions back in 2011, and at the time he wasn’t even old enough to get into the club. Now he performs in one every weekend, and he’s been an official Dirtybird Player ever since.An outstanding talent, we always love a good Justin Jay track since it can be tech, deep, quirky, disco, or in the case of “Cash Money”, an attention-grabber. Funky bass, catchy vocal, a satisfying build up and even some loose change.As a bonus, Justin stripped back his own track for the “Techno Dub”, adding subtle percussive layers over a simpler and effective beat.

Sirushood thirdeye (2)
After several appearances on Dirtybird compilations, including collaborations with Dirtybird Player Sacha Robotti and house music legend Roland Clark, France’s Sirus Hood returns with his own EP, “Third Eye”. Leading off with “Warning”, which starts out innocently enough, before letting you know that ‘this is a warning’, and hitting you with an annihilating arpeggiated bassline. Take cover. Rounding out the EP, “Attention”, an accurate description of its reflective rhythms and building layers of sound that forces you to take notice.

Birdfeed lucati shiva
[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] Lucati returns to the 'Feed with "Shiva", and if you're in LA this weekend and lucky enough to get a ticket to the sold out event, you can catch him opening up at our BBQ! -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.

Cvs live in detroit   cover   3000x3000   v1
Recorded during his headline set at Movement Detroit, Claude VonStroke’s “Live From Detroit” is the first­ ever live mix album released by Dirtybird Records, the label VonStroke founded in San Francisco in 2005. VonStroke has always loved mix compilations, coming of age listening to the likes of Andrew Weatherall for Fabric and Claude Young’s DJ Kicks. The chance to put out a live recording from his hometown of Detroit, in collaboration with one of the world’s largest and respected electronic music festivals, proved irresistible. VonStroke spent four months A&Ring the mix, pre­clearing nearly 150 tracks in the weeks leading up to the album, giving him the chance to DJ at Movement with a huge variety of music. He sourced exclusive VIP edits from the Dirtybird family, as well as a brand new remix of Claude’s timeless “Who’s Afraid of Detroit?” . The album came to embody the Dirtybird A&R ethic, featuring seven never ­before­ heard tracks that VonStroke discovered and signed just for this release. So while the album includes nods to the label’s past, it also includes new artists, and an original VonStroke track called “Maharaja”.“I’ve played Movement more than 10 times, and every time it’s one of the most nerve­ racking shows of the year,” says VonStroke. “I always want to bring the hottest possible set for Detroit, it’s where it all started, and my parents always come watch. My set is very much an old­ school style DJ set, all music no­ one’s heard before, special versions, secret edits, all the stuff I’ve been saving just for this performance. It seems crazy to release a mix album in today’s world, but the amount of incredible original music I have collected from both known and unknown producers will make this something people can get really excited about.”For this special Birdfeed release, we present all of the brand new exclusive Dirtybird tracks Claude signed just for the mix!

[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.

[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.

[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] "Don't Stop" is this week's Exclusive from New York's "Westend"!-How long have you been creating music? 7 Years. Robert Moog, who created the first commercial modular synthesizer, went to my high school (shoutout Bronx Science). His daughter donated a digital music lab which consisted of around 30 iMacs each equipped with Reason 5 and a MIDI keyboard. Took a class on music production and the rest is history! -What do you use to make your tracks?Started off on Reason and switched over to Ableton 3 years ago. -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?The first Dirtybird artists I saw was in 2011 when Claude Von Stroke closed out Mad Decent Block Party. I had no idea who he was and assumed he was some pompous Dutch techno DJ but I am pretty sure I lost my mind during that set.“Make That Booty Clap” by Kill Frenzy was the first track on Dirtybird that I can remember. Sheeesh what a heater! It needs to be rereleased with a new roster of remixers. -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?Walker & Royce, Fisher, Justin Martin. 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. Because of all of this, it is extremely humbling to be able release a track with Dirtybird right now and I could not be happier for the opportunity!

Over ten years, ever since i was a little girl.. .but I’ve been producing on a serious level the last 5 years. -What do you use to make your tracks?I use Logic X as my main work station, Moog Voyager, Prophet 6, SSL Desk, UAD Plugs and a Triangle when i want some extra ting. -How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?The first Dirtybird track i ever heard was Claude VonStroke's “Deep Throat”, I heard it in a mix for a radio show, then later heard Claude in a interview about Dirtybird's whole ethos, i was instantly wanting to know more about this exciting new brand. -Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?It would probably have to be Justin Martin as I’ve never heard anyone make such laidback melodic music with a set of huge balls…The mans a musical wizard! 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...

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!

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 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!

[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
