[BIRDFEED EXCLUSIVE] Congrats to Lustyr who won the Claude's Construction contest with "This Thuh Thee"! Here's his winning track, exclusive to the 'Feed!

-How long have you been creating music?

I started messing around with DAWs roughly 10 years ago while in middle school. I've been more seriously creating music for about 3 years.


-What do you use to make your tracks?

I use Ableton on my PC, some MIDI controllers (M-AUDIO 49 and AKAI MPK 25), my voice if I'm feeling weird, and random items laying around my room as auxiliary percussion.


-How and when did you first discover Dirtybird?

Dirtybird was first on my radar when "Function" by Ardalan and Justin Martin landed in my "Discover Weekly" playlist on Spotify in 2016. A few months after that, I walked into Chipotle to get a barbacoa burrito and heard a weird funky track. I pulled out Shazam and learned it was "The Greasy Beat - Natural Funk Mix" by Claude VonStroke. That's when I got hooked on Dirtybird.  


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

For the top spot, I would say it's a tie between Vangelis Kostoxenakis and Claude VonStroke. Christian Martin, Sven Lochenhoer, and Ardalan would also be great to collaborate with.


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

The Spectral Theory


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

Hippo Campus and Polica at Bayfront (Duluth, MN), Lane 8 at The Loft (Minneapolis, MN), or Ardalan in an abandoned church basement.


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

The First World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon) in New York, 1939.


-What species of bird best describes you and why?

A penguin chick because they are chunky, fluffy, and eager to explore the world.


-What does Dirtybird mean to you?

To me, Dirtybird is a group of music lovers that cares just as much about inclusiveness and community as they do the nasty, dirty, techy sounds coming out of the label. Campinn 2021 was one of the most positive and welcoming experiences of my life. Dirtybird also pushes any existing boundaries in music

even further. Being kind-hearted, unique, joyous, creative, and passionate are all attributes of a "Dirtybird".
