Spring has sprung….which means BBQ Season is here! Our annual grill-oriented tour is in full swing and as no Dirtybird BBQ would be complete without some tunes, this year’s soundtrack is “Dirtybird BBQ: Secret Ingredients”.
We kept it stacked just like our BBQ plate, with music from Dirtybird regulars Shiba San & Will Clarke, Kyle Watson, Ciszak, DJ Glen and Wood Holly alongside fresh faces Sébastien V, GAWP, Seumas Norv, Tekla, Sam Swindle and Holt 88.
Our Dirtybird Player and burger aficionado, Will Clarke, is on DJ duties and put together an album-only special mix of the music so you can relax and enjoy the ‘Q.
We're excited to welcome back one of our favorite bass heavy duos, Maximono, with their "Non Sense" EP for Dirtybird Select! They always come with something fresh and unique sounding while also creating serious ammo for the club, and these two tracks are right in line.
The title single features a rolling beast of a bassline with a party-lifting vocal chant, while the boys take "Reign Down" to a complex and moody place, complete with wobbly bass, crazy synths and weird vocals.
Catch the guys on their “Non Sense” US tour June 2017!
UK’s Weiss has had a meteoric rise the past year, and we welcomed him to Dirtybird with his single “Walk With Her” on our New Year’s compilation late last year. Producing tracks that properly cover all the bases—rolling grooves, lots of bass, solid drums and the right amount of vocal bits—his tracks are a favorite to play and consistently crush it, no matter the size of the crowd.
He sent in two tracks specifically for us, and it only took hearing a couple notes to confirm they were a perfect fit. “Change Dat” reminds us of the old Music For Freaks—unique percussion, trippy effects and quirky sounds set amongst a classic Chicago style bounce.
While the title track might remind us of MFF, “Charlie Brown” has a vintage Dirtybird flavor all over it….off-the-wall melody, unconventional bass sounds, and a contagious circus vibe that our fans know and love.
If you’ve followed Dirtybird for a while, then you’re surely aware of Sacha Robotti. He’s graced the label several times the past 5 years, but often with a collaborator—Kill Frenzy, Kevin Knapp, Justin Jay, Look Like, etc.
“Melato Nina” is Sacha’s first solo EP with us and both tracks are filled with emotion, appropriately so. The title track continuously builds around the haunting synth melody and the subdued vocals of Tauon, while the melodic “Low Key Goddess” contrasts the extremes of light & dark sounds to culminate in two brilliant pieces of music.
[BACK CATALOG] Kill Frenzy's storming debut on Dirtybird--the addictive, juke charged brute with its ingenious hip hop breakdown--is back for re-release with a slew of remixes from some choice label affiliates. Not content with the originals genre-traversing legacy (including plays from Soul Clap to Skrillex and pretty much everyone in between), Belgium's booty obsessed Kill Frenzy has rallied the likes of The Martin Brothers, Zombie Disco Squad, Plastician and Mark Starr to deliver their own take on the track, bringing the work out to brand new dance floors in the process. The Martin Brothers set the pace with a characteristically heavy house bass line, the twisted "make that booty clap" vocal sample dancing over the driving groove. Zombie Disco Squad let's the buttock-smacking claps take centre stage, while a clever percussion score and perfectly timed ellipsis make for certified ghetto house dance floor material. Dirtybird debutant by way of Croydon, Plastician, focuses on the bass elements of the original, creating a swaying dubstep rhythm where booty claps become glock pops before your very eyes, while Mark Starr opts for a similarly languid groove, without losing sight of Kill Frenzy's playful genre-splicing. "Make That Booty Clap feat. DJ Funk" became an instant milestone in the dirtybird canon and its great to see Kill Frenzy's debut receiving such masterful reworks a year on. -VonStroke
A lot has happened since Eats Everything made his Dirtybird debut back in 2011….he tours the world relentlessly, has a BBC Radio 1 residency, runs his own label, and has racked up countless awards and accolades.
Considering his last Dirtybird appearance was on our tenth-anniversary compilation several years back – and because Eats is one of our dearest Players – we're thrilled to welcome him back with his “Clash of the Tight-Uns” EP.
He brought a friend with him this time, fellow UK producer Lord Leopard, and together they crafted two singles for us, “Song For” and “War Rhythm”. The former perfectly captures the essence of Eats’ personality—fun, playful and full of life, while Lord’s influence is heard on the latter; a darker, blistering techno track.
[BACK CATALOG] Released 6 years ago to the day! Here's the original quote from Claude: "I was finishing up a long extended set in Paris when the CleckCleckBoom crew practically ran into the club to get on the decks. They were playing a new sound, some nasty bits sitting somewhere between juke and bass music and I knew we had to get this vibe on dirtybird no matter what. "Yo Vogue" is hot property and I'm really excited to release it. The half time drop, the chopped and screwed vocal, the stuttering bass kicks, the creepy moog on top - it's simple and complex at the same time and it wrecks shop whenever it gets played. I did a remix on the B side giving it some db flavor and dirtybird newcomer Leroy Peppers lays out his own bay area skeeze with hot sauce on top. Watch yer bass bins! Best, VonStroke"
Talk about worldly: Don Rimini hails from France, lives in Belgium, has an Italian artist name, plays tracks like a frenetic UK DJ and is in love with Chicago house music. His country of origin aside, Rimini is a truly talented producer, and we anticipate that the "Freaky City" EP is the first of many Dirtybird releases from him. Containing two no-nonsense bangers, "Motel Ride" and "Planet Earth", the EP barely lets you catch your breath between the tracks' jacked beats and vocal bits. Wherever you may come from, Don, thank you for welcoming us into your "Freaky City."
[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.
[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!
[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.
