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!
Bristol's master practitioner of boompty electro house returns for west coast institution Dirtybird with his rendition of DJ Godfather's 1999 classic "Booty Perculate" feat DJ Funk, but in the process sounds more like Cajmere's seminal "Percolator" with its stomping Chicago hard house groove and wobbly melody. Second offering "House Girl" sounds more like the Clarke we know with its massive bouncy baseline, tight rhythm and buzzing synth leads that fly all over the shop for perfect trippiness beneath druggy pitch shifted vocals. That's what we're talking about right here!
Bristol upstart Will Clarke gets his freak on for the mighty Defected with a damn fine bleepy electro house ditty in the form of "Spandex" featuring Rhea's cheeky and sultry vocals. An infectious track with its bumping bassline and buzzy melody, it's quite reminiscent of past classics like Laidback's "White Horse" or Whirlpool Productions "From Disco To Disco". Now that's a compliment! Oh and there's an accapella included too for the more adventurous among you.
Dirtybird is having a BBQ and we're all invited. Hirsute selector Will Clarke is the man tending to the grill, liberally spreading around his "secret ingredients" for other DJs to taste. There's plenty of juicy, char-grilled goodness to be found throughout, from the warehouse-friendly hip-house revivalism of DJ Glen's "Move Your Bone" and sub-heavy, Afro-tinged tech-house tribalism of Seamus Norv's "Wuuvulu", to the mind bending electronics, wonky vocals and TB-303 driven madness of Tekla's "Shake" and Sam Swindle's throbbing, bleep-laden closer "Disco Slut". If that's not enough to get you drooling like a dog at dinnertime, Dirtybird has also included a killer DJ mix from Clarke.
