Review: San Francisco's Ardalan Noghre-Kar serves up this year's eagerly awaited annual Dirtybird Campout compilation, which is now into its third edition. Happening in the beautifully idyllic surrounds of Bradley in Monterey County on October 6th - 8th, 2017: get your camping supplies packed as they gear up for the Great Outdoors with a proper soundtrack. Von Stroke & Co. reached deep into the Dirtybird vaults for a 'super sized' version of this year's mix. Featuring 15 tracks from featured artists you will see perform live at the event, including many past Dirtybird favorites. They also added two special bonus tracks: the previously unreleased remix of head honcho Claude VonStroke's "Barrump" and his collaboration with the recently retired veteran Jesse Rose "Bare Mountain", which was originally released on Rose's A-Sided label back in 2015.
Review: After a relentless touring schedule during the first half of 2017, Dirtybird head honcho Claude Vonstroke hit the studio with a couple of ace producers in the form of Will Clarke and Sebastien V. They collaborated on two giant singles for the Works Well With Others EP. Claude Vonstroke & Will Clarke team up first on "Tiny Tambourine", a dark and filthy tech house groove on the deep and druggy tip. Just listen to that gnarly 'womp' build and build into utter dancefloor madness: this one is huge! Secondly we have Claude VonStroke & Sebastien V with "Daylight Dark Room" an epic dose of acid with a whole heap of bump in the bass and no shortage of jack in the rhythm department. Perfect for getting weird in the early hours, if you ask us!
Review: The eighth release on Sccucci Manucci sees the imprint pack a hefty eight productions that traverse various house sounds from around the world onto two slabs of handstamped wax. From Coeo's bouncy and vocal track through to Mella Dee's dark and distinctively UK-centric track the label has tried to explore the sheer wealth of production talent on offer at the moment.
