dirtybird Players (Part 1)

27 Feb


Introducing the dirtybird players compilation, the follow-up to last years “Hatched” comp which was picked as the compilation of the year in DJ mag.  It’s 14 original tracks split into two releases and featuring up-and-comers and old schoolers on the label. The musical direction of dirtybird is always evolving but that sense of good times is always there in the background, keeping you smiling and dancing in your house parties, giant clubs and car stereos around the world. 

Part one of the players comp is totally stacked with killer trax from veteran db artists Justin Martin & Ardalan, Kill Frenzy & Nick Monaco,  Munnibrotherz, and J. Phlip.  In addition some newer acts like Shadow Child, Nick Olivetti, & Supatrol all deliver monster tunes I really love as well.

As usual the music speaks for itself so we will spare you the 2 page blurb.

Enjoy the tunes!

BBQ Trax

17 Aug

Before dirtybird was a record label it started as a San Francisco barbecue party based on sunshine, great music and carne asada. Friends playing good music out in the park for anyone who would show up. In celebration of the energy and spirit of the BBQ party we bring you this 4 track release with that summery open air vibe.  

Everyone on the EP is making their 2nd or 3rd appearance on the label. Los Angeles based Justin Jay returns with “Femme Fatale” a fantastic sounding 70s inspired funk-house jam. Nick Monaco also returns, continuing his quirky ideas with the thematic and amusing “Don’t Hate, Create!”. A1 Bassline is back with the ever smooth and melodic 808 boomer called “Daft”. And lastly, we have the highly anticipated return of Shadow Child with “Comb Over” which he co-produced with long time friend of the label, James Talk.  

We hope you enjoy and get to try these tracks somewhere outdoors this summer with some BBQ and beers.

Nick Monaco – Emailing Tijuana / Boom Soul! EP

26 May

Tune in to this new Nick Monaco EP out on Dementomori with remixes from Manaré, Ardalan, Meatie & Meech (whom we had the pleasure to mix with last weekend – thanks again!), Femme En Fourrure and Poupon. Now for a little s-cloud knicked text about Nick Monaco:

Nick Monaco began his career as a DJ/Producer at the ripe age of 13, scratching his dad’s prized Queen records. He quickly became a connoisseur of hip-hop culture, studying the old school dogmatically. At the age of 15, when he could afford a Roland keyboard, he began making hip-hop and r&b beats.

Nick Monaco hails from northern California’s Bay Area, the cradle of hella, hyphy, and 808-heavy house. Monaco quickly discovered San Francisco’s dirtybird records who managed to seamlessly weave all three into what he refers to as “hella hyphy house.”

Monaco’s sound is very friendly to booty’s, hips, and everything in between. His name should make it somewhere into your vocabulary in the near future.

Release date: June 6, 2011
