I almost shit my drawers when I found this in my inbox last week… Big tech-house vibe with that wonky effed up dirtybird sound. Each track is full of win! This EP will blow the socks off everyone on the dancefloor… Are you ready? ~djElroy
‘dirtybird’ has always been synonymous with sweaty bass-lines, fun ideas, and bumpin’ funk. This 5 year label birthday package is a celebration of both individuality and achievement as one of America’s quirkiest imprints arrives at its first big milestone.
The full release includes 3 x cds with over 50 tracks including classics, a mix comp by Justin Martin and a 3rd disc of all new material. This release is a collection of some of the best tracks from Disc #3, “the future” disc with tracks collected for a year by label boss Claude VonStroke. It features a wide variety of sounds and international talent from San Francisco to Canada to Germany to Brasil. But even though it showcases a very international roster, each track has that special freaky spark that makes it work on dirtybird.
Says VonStroke himself…
“In my opinion this is the strongest overall EP we’ve ever released. From Latin flava to jackin congo to fun techno to hip-hop house – these 4 bombs all have their own distinct personalities. I play all of these religiously and they all get a massive response. Just for example, The Martin Brothers (Justin and Christian) have delivered one of the best tracks ever on the label, a real definition of the label’s sound. And the other 3 are just as amazing in their own right.”
