[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] This week's track comes from Minneapolis' Contribe!

-How long have you been creating music?

I started playing bass in a punk rock band around 10 years ago, we recorded a few songs in a studio. After a long hiatus, I decided to start writing music again, only this time it was house music.

-What do you use to make your tracks?

My DAW of preference is Ableton, it really helps my style of producing as well as allows me to easily make very unique songs. Outside of the box, I use a Minilogue XD, ever since I first used an analog synth I was hooked, nothing feels better than turning knobs on that thing.  

-How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?

I saw Claude for the first time at Bonnaroo 2016. Immediately I was hooked, looked up some Dirtybird artists and realized I had already been listening to some of them.

-Which Dirtybird artist would you want to collaborate with the most?

There's so many to name! I would say Walker & Royce because all of their songs leave me wondering how the hell they came up with all of their sounds!

-If your entire life was a movie, what title would best describe you?

Limitless; but if the magic pills were replaced by coffee. As a good Colombian, I need my daily coffee.

-What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?

My first Dirtybird Campout in 2019. Slept in an RV for the first time, made many new friends, and listened to amazing music non-stop for an entire weekend. The highlight of the festival for me was watching Bruno Furlan and DJ Glen absolutely kill their set a couple of hours after I was talking with DJ Glen in the crowd.

-If you could time travel, where and when would you go?

I would definitely travel some centuries to the future and see how Colombia is doing.

-What species of bird best describes you and why?

A penguin! They live in cold weather; I live in Minneapolis. More importantly, they can't fly and fall a lot but they keep ongoing.

-What does Dirtybird mean to you?

At first, Dirtybird was a platform for me to get a lot of amazing music. After following some of the artists for years and going to my first campout, it really became a huge inspiration for me to continue my music-making journey, and having a song come out on this label is a huge dream come true!
