Kill Frenzy // Go To The Mo

1 Sep

Kill Frenzy debuted on dirtybird with the label anthem of last year “Make that Booty Clap featuring DJ Funk”. To have a track that gets played by everyone all the way from Soul Clap to Skrillex shows Kill Frenzy’s ability to bridge the gap between genres, cliques and crews around the world. This new EP pushes even further into that original sound. To be able to combine footwork, breaks, techno & dubstep and make it all playable in house DJ sets is a big achievement and Kill Frenzy seems to have claimed this new genre all for himself. We have to give credit to co-producer of “Go To The Mo” dirtybird’s long time friend Sacha Robotti working with KF on the A side, but there is no denying this new talent from Belgium and we are really excited to have Kill Frenzy be a part of dirtybird. It also makes me happy that after 8 years some of that San Francisco dirt is breaking through to places like Belgium other countries in Europe outside of the UK. (dirtybird SC, 2012) – Out Sept 12, 2012

dirtybird Summer EP

17 Jul

And we’re off! Who has the lucky task of following up Justin Martin’s epic Ghettos & Gardens album? It’s a sampler called “dirtybird summer” celebrating the sounds and sunshine of this year’s amazing summer season.  

Track one of this diverse four parter is a melodic overture by the Munnibrotherz from South Africa who debuted on dirtybird last year with the hit record “Moon Chon Chayouh.” Track two is a dirtybird virgin, Nick Olivetti. Some of you have probably heard me drop his track “Hectic Guitar” at some point on the road this year, it was a big part of my live sets. This new one “Jump Up” is just as deadly and even more focused on the super heavy grooves Nick is so good at producing.  

Track three is a really fun db style party track by Genghis Clan. Its got the big build up and the fun vox samples but the drop is pure house music and pure summer groove. It really works, especially outdoors. Last but not least are my buddies from Bristol, Waifs & Strays who are also making a debut on dirtybird with “Lost In The Party.” This is kind of like a nu-disco style track if the producers were from Bristol and grew up on filthy basslines and roast dinners. Its also got elements of Detroit techno. Simple and effective I like to say.. (VonStroke, 2012)
