Release
Walker & royce  self help final
“If you want something done right, sometimes you just have to do it yourself”. In a world filled with false gurus and misguided leaders, so goes the mantra of the New York duo Walker & Royce. After a swift rise in recent years – during which time they pioneered a sound that is often imitated but never replicated – Sam Walker and Gavin Royce have used this mantra as the impetus for their debut album “Self Help”, on their label home Dirtybird. In order to grow, one often has to look inward, and the pair set out on a trail of self-discovery and advancement. Their journey has resulted in a diverse album that evokes a range of emotion and fervor, one that can be appreciated both on the way to a club as well as feverishly dancing to it in one.  Walker & Royce’s signature production is in exceptional form on their solo tracks, such as “Why Tho”, “Warkin It”, “Best Track Ever” and “Sunday”. The way they contrast heavy, low-end bass and beats with pristine melodies arises from the first thing they ask themselves when they fire up their studio: “Will we play this?” The pair has also continued to push the boundaries of their minted formula for a bigger purpose, enlisting several distinct vocalists and collaborators to captivating effect. The legendary Green Velvet lends his vocal talent to “Rub Anotha Dub”, and longtime friend Dances With White Girls appear on two memorable tracks, including the hit single “Take Me To Your Leader”. Other collaborators such as Sophiegrophy, OnCue, Forrest and Mr. JPatt each introduce their own individual elements to the album, rounding out the varied tones and feelings that comprise the “Self Help” masterpiece. The road to self-discovery is filled with many bumps and obstacles, but with “Self Help”, Walker & Royce have proven that they’ve got the keys and in the driver’s seat.

Campoutcompilation2017d
We have our tents, coolers, sleeping bags, costumes and game faces packed as we gear up for the 3rd annual Dirtybird Campout! Every outing to the Great Outdoors needs a proper soundtrack, and we reached deep into the Dirtybird vaults for a super sized version of this year's Campout Compilation, with 15 tracks from several of the artists you'll see perform in the woods.   In addition to including many past Dirtybird favorites, we’ve also added two special bonus tracks—the previously unreleased remix of Claude VonStroke's “Barrump” from Billy Kenny that's been a closely guarded weapon and been tearing up dancefloors all Summer, and Claude & Jesse Rose’s “Bare Mountain”, which was originally released on Jesse’s A-Sided label back in 2015. For those of you Campers that spend your time dancing in front of the decks instead of spinning behind them, our Dirtybird Player, Ardalan, put together this year's compilation into a seamless mix for your adventures. See you at Camp!

Freak out instagram image 1080x1080
One of the things we appreciate most at Dirtybird is that our sound resonates and comes from all corners of the world. "Freak Out" is the new EP on Dirtybird Select from Mancodex, who hails from the complete opposite side of the globe of our California HQ, Russia. “Freak Out” features a low-pitched voice telling us ‘Don’t be Afraid’, but the colossal square wave bassline over uncomplicated beats has us thinking otherwise. By contrast, “Po-Li” traverses a bit more moody ground with wistful pads and melancholy voices over heavy bass tones. Even though he’s thousands of miles away, Mancodex created two tracks that fit right here at home.

R220
“Rub Anotha Dub” is the 2nd single from Walker & Royce’s upcoming album, “Self Help”, and it’s a monster. Featuring contagious lyrics from the voice of the one and only Green Velvet, they will have you mouthing the words while your feet get busy to Walker & Royce’s signature sound of beats, bass and melody. 3 ravers in a club….which one are you?

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.
Release
Summerfunk final
We’re deep in the dog days of Summer, so it’s only appropriate we turn up the heat with a bit of fire from our “Summer Funk” release, featuring four bangers from four different artists. Lee Walker makes his debut on Dirtybird with “Rock Climber”, a ferocious track with build-ups and build-downs that make you feel like you’re on an unforgiving rollercoaster. Huge. Weiss has been a favorite of ours the past year, and follows up his recent Dirtybird EP with “Bounce”. It does exactly what it says, with Weiss’ trademark mixture of jackin beats, underground boom and a bit of amusement. Lord Leopard first appeared with Eats Everything in March on one of our biggest EPs of the year, and goes solo with “As Gospel”. The contagious lead line swirls in and out over a dark set of drums and bass that will certainly contribute to Lord’s rapid ascent as an artist to watch. Bump Ugly’s “Lost My Mind” rounds out the EP with animated beats and bass that dance along with quirky bleeps and blips for a funky Summer ride.

Db095 goldffinch   11th hour
[BACK CATALOG] With a change in the season and the promise of balmy city sunsets on the horizon, it feels natural that Dirtybird should drop a much welcomed curveball into their 2013 EP catalogue. Courtesy of Belgium born duo, GoldFFinch, ‘11th Hour’ explores the label’s more implicit approach to bass, with all the richly textured, distinctively UK sounds we’ve come to expect from the pair. This release also marks GoldFFinch’s first original Dirtybird release proper, after proving their worth on the heavy hitting Players compilation and remixing French Fries’ ‘Space Alarm’ as an induction. ‘11th Hour’ opens the release with a beautifully carved intro of muted, sensual synths and a blunted percussion beat that immediately picks out a swinging, London-centric rhythm. As the distant yearn of afterhours city lights emerges, the intro melts into a fluid-yet-funky roller, a languid longing for the urban twilight hour. ‘Sultry Steel’ flirts with UK Garage foundations, as the drums skip along with knowing skill and a slinky vocal sample punctuates the fuzzy atmosphere. As the track name suggests, it’s the steel drum melody that gives the beat its memorable dance floor significance. Erring on the subtler side of late night bass, dirtybird has uncovered a veritable gem here. Enjoy!

Workswellwithothers
2016 was a banner year for Dirtybird’s founder, Claude VonStroke. He debuted his Get Real alias with Green Velvet in the winter, and followed up with another number one single in the spring with “The Rain Break”. He celebrated the 10th anniversary of “Who’s Afraid of Detroit” to kick off the Summer, and finished in the fall by being crowned ‘America’s Best DJ’ by Pioneer at a ceremony he shared with all the fans at the Dirtybird Campout. After a relentless touring schedule the first half of 2017, Claude hit the studio with a couple ace producers, Will Clarke & Sébastien V to collaborate on two giant singles for the “Works Well With Others” EP. “Tiny Tambourine” is the product of Will Clarke & Claude working together. It’s a bit of a misnomer, as ‘tiny’ is the last word to describe the heavy bassline which starts to form immediately at the track’s outset. Continuing to build over crisp and heavy beats and outbursts of drama before dropping back to the burly bassline, the result is monstrous. Will Clarke has been on a Dirtybird hot streak having released 3 solo EPs, 5 singles, an appearance on Justin Martin’s album, as well as a brand new collab with Shiba San on the BBQ compilation and a full takeover on the Birdhouse radio show. On the flip side, Claude teams up with one of Dirtybird’s freshest talents, Sébastien V, for “Daylight Dark Room”. A light, melodic tone contrasts with a dark and funky acid resonance to create a truly unique masterpiece. The mysterious Sébastien V was also featured on the Dirtybird BBQ compilation with his super-hot track “Funkulate,” and there are rumors floating around that he is actually someone from the core Dirtybird roster sporting a secret alias.

Doctor instagram image 1080x1080
Over the past few years, Brazil has become a new breeding ground for fresh and talented artists that have been champions of the Dirtybird sound—Bruno Furlan, Ciszak and DJ Glen are just a few of the Dirtybird mainstays that come from south of the equator. The latest import we welcome is Danny Kolk from Sao Paulo, with his “Doctor EP” on Dirtybird Select. Both tracks tear it up with the funky, quirky, bass-heavy sound we love so much. Welcome Danny—or as they say in Brazil, “Bem Vida”!

Db 113 13
[BACK CATALOG]    After an impressive late morning closing set at Dirtybird’s Watergate party in Berlin, Sacha Robotti made his way to Switzerland to play at Nordstern. Hooking up with an equally exhausted Swiss producer, "Look Like" on arrival, the tired and wired duo shared thoughts over a heady green tea session. Realizing they shared a deep love for bass, they made a pact: to write a collaborative EP that would score the highest of marks from Dirtybird big dog Claude VonStroke. These two slick-back groove attacks are the end result... “Loca Lola” is a one-way ticket to the most mischievous of party districts where an array of manipulated vocal samples bounce avidly on a bed of chop-slapping beats. Complete with head-popping stabs, cheeky wolf whistles and a carnal carnival shriek, it’s left VonStroke‘s floors floundering the world over on every roadtest. “Dropout”, meanwhile, tunes into a darker, booty-busting techfunk groove where cut-throat vocal stabs punctuate the unrelenting bassline and chest-stamping kicks. Heads down, please; this one shifts in a serious way. What started as a comedown has turned into a fire-up. Collab creations don’t come any better than this. Something tells us Robotti and Look Like will be locking horns again the future.

Birdfeed shiba
 [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!

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.

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.

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
