Shiba updown square
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.

Lux Groove first showed up on our radar last year when we signed his collaboration with Mark Starr, “That’s What”, to the Grill$son’s Revenge BBQ compilation. Rooted in hip-hop and drum & bass and at one time a regular on the DMC battle circuit, it’s almost as if he was naturally groomed for Dirtybird. “Gee Up” is his first solo EP for us on Dirtybird Select, and features two tracks that VonStroke and Family have been using to get massive reactions whenever they play it. The title track is a rolling groove with a filtered acid line and just enough drop to get the crowd worked up to a fever pitch. It’s complimented by “Ride Low”, which has that magical Dirtybird potion of bass. quirkiness and style we love so much.

Pezzner hand ig copy
While Pezzner has never released a record on Dirtybird until now, it always felt like he was an extended part of the Dirtybird family. Also one half of the production duo Jacob London, the way he approaches music has always been outside of the box like us, and he also understands that you can still be incredibly talented without having to take yourself too seriously. We officially welcome him to the Dirtybird family with “The Hand That Feeds You', featuring two moody and haunting singles, both of which light the room on fire with their trippy effects, subtle buildups, unique drum patterns and impeccable sound design, of which Pezzner is a master.

[BACK CATALOG] Even though the majority of label production has come from the west coast of California dirtybird has always been keen to signing good music from abroad. Some non-Cali names you might easily recognize these days like Tim Green & Riva Starr made their early marks on dirtybird. Regardless of location, the label is always striving to nd new music. These two tracks have the distinct honor of actually making out of the demo pile. Yes, Mr. VonStroke actually listens to every single demo sent to the label and sometimes (but not often) there are some real gems. B-Jus My Sneakers is a real booty track, maybe even too much funk for your average house DJ to handle. And Eric Voltas Django is more of a tension building affair where long rhythmic breaks lead to ever so satisfying kick drops.  We really believe in these two tracks and think they deserve a shot, but well leave it up to you as  always.

As Dirtybird originated in San Francisco, we were pretty spoiled music-wise. The city was filled with world class DJ's that you could see in a 2000 person club on the weekend, or after work on a Tuesday at a taco restaurant. There was a litany of quality music that rolled in week in and week out from all over the world that had a sound that perfectly set the unique vibe of SF. There were so many great records during these golden years that often times a brilliant track would get a brief stint of fame here on the dancefloors and bars, only to disappear and get replaced the following week when the next round of records arrived at the shops. “Is That My Wig?” & “Cha For Che” from Asadihno are two examples of tracks that take us back to those years where tech, deep and soul didn't mean a thing and everyone danced under one roof. Initially released in 2008 under his original artist name Asad Rizvi, “Is That My Wig?” has been re-discovered by Claude VonStroke and freshly packaged with the previously unreleased “Cha for Che” on our Dirtybird Select label.

Camp comp1 pezzner
The inaugural Dirtybird Campout in 2015 was conceived with a simple post by Claude VonStroke of a tent by the lake with the message, “All Your Favorite DJ”s In The World”. The only catch was Claude was the only one that knew about this fantasy party-he didn’t tell a soul, including managers, agents, PR teams or any of the ‘World’s Favorite Dj’s’. Needless to say, Claude had a lot of phone calls that afternoon. But fantasy quickly turned into reality, and the team came together to produce one of the best weekends of our lives-music, games, crafts, boats, camping..basically a secret post turned into a full-on Summer camp for adults. We’re back again this year, and you can expect all the elements of the original Campout plus this amazing compilation of Dirtybird music featuring many of the artists that will be providing the soundtrack for the weekend, and mixed by one of our newest Camp Counselors, Pezzner. See you in the woods.

Willclarke bootypercolatin 1800
Back in 2015 our bearded Dirtybird Player, Will Clarke, needed a secret weapon for some of his festival gigs for the Summer. He sampled the ghetto house legend, DJ Funk, who made an appearance on Dirtybird back in 2013 for the Kill Frenzy smash, “Make That Booty Clap”. Will passed it on to the rest of the Dirtybird crew, and before we knew it the track took a life of it’s own and quickly became one of the most requested tracks, even to this day. Will ended up linking with DJ Funk himself, and they turned what was a quick bootleg into a full blown collaboration. Ladies & Gentlemen, “Booty Percolatin’” is officially here. For the flip side, we added Will’s solo effort “House Girl”, a bumpin’ ride with a contagious bassline and chanting vocals for all the ‘House Boys’ and ‘House Girls”.

Brunofurlan
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!
Release
Killfrenzy silo 1080
It’s been almost two years since we released Kill Frenzy’s debut album ‘Taylr Swft’ to the world, and since then he’s made an appearance on our “Large Room Vol. 1” sampler with “H.O.U.S.E”, and was featured on Justin Martin’s album with “Wet Cat”, along with Ardalan, earlier this year. He’s traveled the world with us as a Dirtybird Player and is a big part of the Dirtybird family, and we’re bringing him back to the label with the monster single, “Silo”. “The name I gave the track has a special meaning to me. ‘Silo’ is the name of my favorite club in Leuven, Belgium that had so many great artists coming through there, and where I discovered a lot of great music. Sadly it closed a few years ago, but I remember seeing Claude VonStroke there once, which is probably in my memory still one of my favorite sets from him. I gave him a CD that night with some demos but never heard from him. Luckily a few years later, I finally did ;) “ We’re glad he did too.

[BACK CATALOG] This two-tracker that originally came out in 2009 from Solo and Zombie Disco Squad should put a smile in your step. These tracks are simply FUN. Featuring Solo's upbeat "Congoloid", which makes you want to join the dance line in Latin America, and ZDS's "The Dance" which we challenge you not to clap and snap to the rhythms.

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!

Boy

The Dirtybird Players have had a huge crush on the New York based duo Walker & Royce for a while now, as it's not uncommon to find at least one or two W&R bombs in their sets on tour. They’re unique and forward thinking approach to music has seen support come from as diverse as Pete Tong to Maceo Plex to Sasha to Adam Beyer. Campers are still buzzing about their set at last year's Dirtybird Campout, and Claude invited them as a guest for his Birdhouse stage at Mysteryland this Summer. Needless to say, we're fans. We knew we needed a release from them for Dirtybird, and we have the perfect EP to welcome them to the family, “Boy".  Both of the tracks stand out on their own, yet also compliment each other with the straight forward title track that is the Yin to the tongue in cheek Yang of “I.T.B.”.   "We are beyond excited to be releasing with Dirtybird, to us its the quintessential label. The family they have built and the quality of everything they do is second to nothing. Its truly an honor to be involved."  - Walker & Royce

Dateless  digital release artwork 2400x2400
Dateless is a name you might not have heard yet, but we know you’ll be hearing a lot more of from this Los Angeles native from here on out. Proof that it’s not just an urban legend that our head ‘Bird, Claude VonStroke, really does listen to every demo that comes in, Dateless submitted a handful of tracks to our demo page, Claude pressed play, and we wanted almost all of them. We introduced him to Dirtybird on our “Secret Sauce” compilation in June, and we felt he deserves his own EP, “A Whole Lot”, featuring two singles that both fit as A-sides—the title track and “El Viento Tropical”. We look forward to seeing the bright future ahead for this talented young artist, and don’t think finding dates will be a problem anymore.

Db bbq secretsauce final
The BBQ "Secret Sauce" compilation is already a huge hit, peaking at #2 on the overall Beatport charts, support coming from all across the globe, and tickets for the BBQ tour flying off the shelf. For those of you that like your beats shaken and stirred, we've enlisted Sacha Robotti to give all 14 of these tracks the DJ treatment, putting together this mix available as a download exclusively to our Birdfeed members!

Db claudevonstroke waod anniv final 1000
It’s hard to believe an entire decade has gone by since Claude VonStroke first released ‘Who’s Afraid of Detroit”. But believe it or not, we’ve reached the 10 year mark of one of the biggest hits of Claude’s career, and we felt it’s about time for some fresh takes on the track that helped launch VonStroke and Dirtybird. For the 10 year anniversary, we tapped into the Motor City’s outstanding talent pool and enlisted an amazing lineup of Detroit artists to help us celebrate. Besides Claude VonStroke’s brand new 2016 remix, we also included mixes from techno icons Octave One, minimal techno pioneer Marc Houle (Windsor is close enough!), and the accomplished trio, Visionquest. For our Birdfeed members, we also added an exclusive bonus mix from Marc Houle, the "Last Track Mix"! Not limiting the Detroit based artist package to just the music, the haunting release artwork comes to us from Michigan illustrator Dan May. In addition, a dark David Lynch style music video comes from award winning Detroit director, Anthony Ernest Garth. “Who’s Afraid of Detroit Remixes” will be released on the 10th anniversary of the Movement Festival in what city? Detroit, of course.

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!

Style of eye jacket 1400
****BACK CATALOG**** In 2008, there was a young Swedish producer that sent us this EP. Quirky and fun (just like us) we snatched it up, it became a solid hit, and we ended up signing another EP from him a year and a half later, "The Race". This young producer went on to great things under his original alias Style of Eye, and in recent years has crossed into the mainstream with his new moniker, Galantis. Enjoy this classic Dirtybird release!!

Friend within 3.0
For the second release on our sister label Dirtybird Select, we wanted to present something special. In 2013, a mysterious artist by the name of Friend Within sent us a demo, instantly catching the ear of Claude VonStroke. Claude immediately signed the very first Friend Within EP, 'The Game' to Dirtybird, and one month later signed 'The Pull' to the Dirtybird Players compilation. In just three short years since, Friend Within is now at the top of the ranks with releases on labels like Hypercolour, Defected, Pets and his own imprint He Loves You. After our Friend submitted 'Move Me', Claude VonStroke took it on the road and the crowd’s reactions sealed it. It was time to bring our Friend back. 'This has a really unusual disco funk flavor mixed in with a UK sensibility. I don't have anything else like it in my collection- it's so good!' - Claude VonStroke

Justinmartin helloclouds final
Justin Martin looks to the skies on Hello Clouds, his second full length album on Dirtybird. Building on the formidable foundation he established with 2012's Ghettos & Gardens, Justin invites listeners on a high-flying journey through a rich musical landscape. One of the label’s most beloved characters, Martin lets his effervescent personality shine through on these 13 tracks – along with an unexpected range of emotions. From the first strings of album opener “Dive In”, Justin effortlessly establishes an otherworldly mood. Are we deep beneath the ocean's surface, or squinting at bright sunlight while 30,000 feet in the air? It ultimately doesn't matter – we just need to hear more. And Justin delivers with a set of obsessively crafted tunes for clubs and headphones alike. For example, on title track “Hello Clouds,” Justin mixes the ethereal vocals of rising star FEMME with sub-rattling lows and a chorus of singing 303s.   This is only one of many exciting collaborators on the album. "I reached out to specific artists who currently inspire me,” Martin explains, “artists I think the world needs to hear more of." This impressive group of collaborators include FEMME, Charlotte OC, Lena Cullen, Kill Frenzy, Will Clarke, Ardalan, and even his brother Christian. These features introduce a veritable cast of supporting characters, adding additional stories and sounds to the ones Justin is already sharing. Hello Clouds is an impressive sophomore outing – a complete work that invites the listener to float above walls, ceilings and any other restraints they might encounter. So lay back, look skyward and experience the breathtaking scope of Justin's imagination."

Dbird031 1400px
A special Back Catalog release for our Birdfeed members! A message from Claude VonStroke... "Sascha Braemer has got the funk! I first heard him onthe amazing "Thrill" on Kindisch which I charted in my top 3 tracks of 2008. After that I heard the even more amazing Heinrichs and Hirtenfeller album "Dark Orbit", (my favorite album of 2009) on Highgrade. I usually like to break new Dirtybird artists, but this time I had to go find this guy and beg him to make us something. Sascha has got that tech-funk, caveman quality that is so elusive and hard for me to find as an A&R. And on this record you will hear why I went and found him. This is an absolute beast! Both tracks are tried and tested club killers."

Cvs rainbreak digi
April showers bring May flowers, but this April Claude VonStroke brings you 'The Rain Break.' Inspired by two different songs from the 80’s - (Raze’s classic “Break For Love” and Oran Juice Jone’s “The Rain”), Claude has replayed and re-sung all the music from scratch to make a special cover tune of both tracks changed and combined into a surefire Dirtybird classic. To quote VonStroke, “I kept singing the Break For Love bassline over and over again in my head but the vocal that always popped in over the top was from the Oran Juice Jones. I cant explain why that happened but i just thought they went together so well that i ran with it.” 'Here Comes the B” is a much weirder affair. Built with massive psychedelic effects, a huge kick and almost no hi-hat pattern, this is late night cavemen music at its best. This big release from CVS will have you wishing for a downpour so you can go Walking In The Rain.

Ardalan thunderdad digirelease
The almighty Ardalan returns to DIRTYBIRD with his second solo EP for us! After having one of our biggest hits of 2015, ‘Function’ with Justin Martin, and the success of his debut ‘The Yeah/No’, we had to shine the spotlight on our rising Dirtybird Player. He makes it easy with tracks like ‘Thunderdad’, a twisted and bouncy track with touches of acid, shuffled beats, big bass and some vocal Thunder. Proving he’s not a one-trick pony, “Look It” heads a different direction with heavy undertones, skating synth melodies, and a touch of drama. To commemorate Ardalan’s ascension, he’ll be hitting the road this Spring with the lightning to his thunder, Sacha Robotti, for the “Thunder Tour” tour across North America. Break out the nectar and ambrosia.

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
