Review: Ascendant Brazilian DJ producer Vinicius Bitencourt, better known as Cour. T, has fast become a staple of west coast tech house institution Dirtybird in recent years. The youngster returns to Claude VonStroke's esteemed label with his new groove called "Monalisa", featuring more of his bumpy and intoxicating minimalist vibes, mixed with more exotic sounds adding to its hypnotic mystique. Second offering is "Louvre Love" (Original Mix) with its wonky low-slung funk by way of a dusty hip-hop inspired production technique, that's just perfect for getting weird at the afterhours.
Review: Brazilian upstart Vinicius Bitencourt a.k.a Cour T. is just 17 years old, but is already creating big waves in his home country and beyond. He made his debut at the famous Dirtybird Campout last year and was responsible for two major dancefloor hits on the label, such as "Joker Jungle" and "Black Magic" and here's his new hit prediction - "Drum Machine". This slinky and downright sleazy groove is perfect for setting the mood during the warm-up, or getting down and dirty at the afterhours alike. Equally as bass-driven (this is Claude Vonstroke's label after all!) is the aptly titled "Euphoric" which injects more energy and dancefloor dynamics into proceedings on this tripped-out minimal tech house thriller. No doubt 2020 will be Cour T.'s year and this is ample proof of such - massive!
Review: Vinicius Bitencourt aka Cour T. is one of the youngest Brazilians to join the team of west coast bass house institution Dirtybird. So far, every single demo by the 17 year old has been signed by the label and his new killer jam exists in the same vein as his last hit "Black Magic". This one comes in the form of the wonky, tribalist boompty business of "Joker Jungle", which is sure to get some tripped-out moments happening on the dancefloor. This is followed up by a remix by Spanish heavyweight Dennis Cruz (Elrow/Solid Grooves) who goes deep into the rainforest with his intensified use hypnotic percussive elements
Review: Rising Brazilian producer Cour.T as fast become a staple of the Dirtybird label, and with a title like 'Dope Farm' he absolutely has the US west coast in mind on his new one. With its wonky and knackered groove featuring exotic motifs and hypnotic polyrhythms, it is absolutely perfect for getting weird at the afterhours. This is followed by the swing-fuelled yet tunneling stomp of "Escape From The Barn". Cour.T continues to impress in 2020 and still one to watch moving into next year.
Review: With their sold out party at Space being cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Dirtybird's annual pilgrimage to Miami may not be back on, but their brand new 10-track compilation to accompany it certainly is! As usual, they've picked up a bunch of unique tracks from established artists and newcomers alike with a penchant for fat, bouncy and bass-driven tech house - a perfect way to soundtrack your lockdown party over the coming weeks. Highlights not limited to: Brazilian upstart Cour.T's NSFW party starter "Acid Pu$$y", the tunnelling 303 acid of Monki's "On Course", Kevin Knapp getting his boompty on as ever with "Dig This" and Jonathan Landossa giving you a microdose of mind altering madness on the thriller "Mind Control". Elsewhere, we're not sure what Morelia and Luke Andy were on when they threw down the the wonky and off-kilter "Wobblesocket" (but we're lovin' it!) and there's' a mastermix of all the aforementioned and more by the ever reliable Gettoblaster.
