Review: Nestled inside the Dirtybird aviary for some time now, Cour T. officially takes flight with Brain Deals, the artist's debut album. Full of vibrant, colourful patterns, amusing vocal samples and playful synth accents, the album's dips through a flurry of interlocking club genres. All enthused with that trippy Dirtybird sound, Brain Deals bangs - be it bumping basslines ("Queenlove") to classic 2010s tech house-isms in "Madrugadao"- the album traverses the gamut of Americana dance music, dipping into acid techno with "Eraser" alongside other wicked mid-west influences.

McDonalds (Eprom remix) - (1:50) 150 BPM Hot
Review: We head back over to Dirtybird US for this latest export, which sees the wonderful sounds of Yung Skrrt return in serious style as two potent remixes of 'McDonalds' arrive. The original track is a certified heater, which is why we were so excited to see both Barclay Crenshaw & Eprom drafted in for this official rework package. First up we explore Barclay Crenshaw's edition, which dives right into the furthest realms of the abstract, fusing warbling LFO lines and lethal distorted vocal processing for a highly intensified overhaul. Eprom on the other hand pulls out a more minimal approach, linking together a fusion of metallic drum effects and a big booming 808 bassline to pulsate around the lower regions. A very tasty start to the year from Dirtybird!

Review: Whenever we see the Dirtybird US logo appear in the store we know we are likely in for one hell of a ride, as they this time welcome the combined flavours of Nala & Nikki Nair inside for a beautiful two-track display. Following on from a blippy introduction, jam-packed with glitchy pad textures and synthetic dives, 'The World Is Always Ending' evolves into a custom-built breaksy barricade-buster, pulsing it's way through your speaker system with a combination of purposeful distortion and chilling vocal displays, giving the whole arrangement a very well thought out feel. On the flip, we take in the acidic drips and potent electronic landscapes of 'Escape', a very enjoyable back up bubbler that serves as a perfect B-side. Fiery stuff indeed!

Review: Dirtybird showcase their deeper side on a new 14-track complation featuring some of the label's best loved artists (Claude VonStroke, Julio Bashmore, Sascho Robotti, Pezzner) alongside a host of more up-and-coming names. There's quite a variety of sounds on offer here, with cuts ranging from the dreamy, bassy minimalism of opener "Aundy" to the pop leanings of Scavazza's "Shake Your Hearts". The best bits, though, come largely from the deepest end of the spectrum: Tom Flynn's Amp Fiddler collab "The Future" is a late-night, jazzy delight while Dernis and Robot Love bring us a couple of proper deep house bullets.

After a couple of appearances on their Birdfeed service, Claude VonStroke & Co. are excited about this first proper release from the Mexican up and comer, as his home region is said to be the label's biggest fan base. Get on your tunnel vision with the title track, an intoxicating minimal groove with hypnotic vocals that's perfect for getting weird at the afterhours. This is followed by the loopy and rhythmic DJ tool "Our" featuring chiming and jacking beats, reminiscent of Minus staples Run Stop Restore.

Going for more of a UK tech house vibe is "That's House Music" up next, a tough rolling groove full of attitude that is aimed squarely at the main room dancefloor at peak time.

First up the is the druggy afterhours bounce of "Small Things" which is the perfect musical accompaniment to knackered Sunday morning vibes, followed by the tough rolling UK tech house vibe of "Droids" which by comparison is much more upbeat and aimed squarely at the main room dancefloor.

Cue The Rhythm - (4:19) 127 BPM Hot
Review: It's a real taste of California dreaming on this new one for Dirtybird. Ascendant Los Angeles transplant VNSSA teams up with Bay Area producer, engineer and educator Lenny Kiser. The two artists got together to exchange some ideas, and they were said to be thrilled with the outcome. On "Sinking", they have crafted a dark and dirty main room floor shaker, where a seething Reese bassline plays centre stage alongside VNSSA's smooth vocal delivery. Second offering "Cue The Rhythm" goes further into bass heavy dystopia on this fierce expression in electro, featuring all the classic motifs of the genre.

Following up some great collaborations such as with Tuff Ghost, and another one a couple of months ago with fellow label artist Steve Darko on "Red", she now serves up some seriously bass heavy bounce on the trippy vocal-led groove of "Psychic Attack".

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: Since making his debut five years ago, Steve Darko has rightly earned a reputation for the quality of his quirky, funk-fuelled workouts, many of which add foreboding, big room sounds and eccentric musical flourishes to bass-beavy tech-house grooves. You'll find more of the same - and plenty else besides - on debut album Midnight Swim, an excitable, mind-altering journey through twisted but accessible peak-time house. Fans and newcomers alike will lap up cuts such as 'Smooth Like Butter', acid-fired Narko hook-up 'Red' and the sleazy, sub-heavy growl of VNSSA collaboration 'Hypnotized', while the album's frequent diversions - see bubbly ambient/electro cut 'Eucildean Dreams', the deep house warmth of Claude Von Stroke co-production 'How Many Times' and the deliciously drowsy 'Eelated' [sic] - are often equally as impressive.

Get down to the low slung and bass-driven bounce of "Dance For Me" by San Diego's Dillon Marinez, or feel the truly sensual vibe of dubby deep house journey "Let's Get High" by the mysterious Freqish, while the pairing of Brazil's Hypside and MNK4 results in some trippy afterhours minimal funk on "UFO Technology".

Review: Literally descending into the dirtybird zone with weird twitches, fidget tweaks and poppin drums is Steve Darko's elastic synth splurge into the trawling underground of the Detroit label and its way-out sound. The title track snarling like a panther caught up somewhere in the acidic wilderness. "Red" featuring the vocal spirales of DJ/vocalist Nala again combines acid, this time with deep house and pop sentiments good enough for the Modular Cowboy label back in the day, Norman Nodge's remix to "Words, Breaths, Pauses", perhaps.

Review: An avid modular synth enthusiast and purveyor of minimal and deep sounds, Wyatt Marshall has been a part of the Dirtybird family for quite a few years. He is co-host of label chief Claude Vonstroke's Birdhouse radio show, and appeared on his album earlier this year collaborating on the track "Youngblood". Marshall makes his EP debut with "Another Redundant Question" which is a serving of slinky and mesmerising tech house with seductive vocals and infectious polyrhythms, which altogether makes for a perfect track for the warm-up or the afterhours alike. Finally, "Da Ding" is a functional deep tribal house tool in the vein of early Mountain People or Andomat 3000.

The album was widely admired by critics, DJs, fans and industry alike, and these remixes chase up its success perfectly.

With touches of light fidget house making their way into the sleaze of Nick Siarom's "Living My Life" to heavier, gurgles of dub by Dutch Dannis, this year's Couch-Out Compilation arrives in conjunction with Dirtybird TV's recent virtual festival. For some harder drum tracks look to Mitch Dodge's "Body Breaks" - a track full of that stripped backed Dirty Bird sound - next to some more minimal and melodic Berliner tips from Robot Love's "What I Lived For". Dive deep into the rabbit hole with Sam Shelby's tripped out "Popo", the nostalgic rave and deep house of VNSSA, to some breakbeat, dub tinged and broken treats from Claude VonStroke & Mike Kerrigan.

Review: Reuben 'Rebuke' Keeney follows last year's Jump Ship release on Dirtybird with this fine two-tracker. The title track is as deep as it gets for Claude Von Stroke's label, with hypnotic chords and chopped up vocal samples unravelling over a steely, forceful rhythm that resounds to bursts of white noise percussion. It's linear and hypnotic, and is sure to have a huge dance floor impact. On "Koto", Rebuke opts for a more accessible sound. Infectious melodies are underpinned by rolling snares and a pumping rhythm that features rasping percussion. It underlines once again that Keeney is a diverse, versatile producer.

Back for the first time since 2017's "Sausages" which appeared on their Dirtybird BBQ compilation, the Blackbird EP features a couple of deep down and dirty jams, that are as bass-driven as you like it. From the sleazy afterhours boompty business of "Coffee Break" and its suggestive lyrics, to the downtime booty house slammer "Scooty Woop" - this sure is NSFW but certainly guaranteed to bang the party!

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.

Review: 'Freaks and Beaks' is the fourth album from Dirtybird head honcho Claude VonStroke. Taking inspiration from the sense of humor shared between him and label partner Justin Martin, a love of experimentation with everything from hardware and modular synthesis to iPhone apps, and embracing genres as wide as ghetto tech, drum 'n' bass, hip-hop and breaks - together with his idiosyncratic style of minimal tech house. This is VonStroke's love letter to vibrancy and genre diversity. From the bass-driven acid jack of "Freaks Don't Fail Me Now", the trippy afterhours reductions of "Flubblebuddy" or "Youngblood (ft. Wyatt Marshall) to the influence of Bristol's similarly low-end driven sound as heard on "These Notes In Order" or for something different there's even a bit of blissed-out electronica - as heard on the evocative closer "Alpine Arpline".

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: Pumping peak time club hits from Polish hit makers Catz 'n Dogz that proclaim 'I can do what I want with my body" and 'I'm a slut baby and there's nothing you can do about it'. Dirtybird delivers a sexually charged club hit loaded with an unapologetic monologue about sexual identity that sounds like it comes from a disgruntled Ru Paul, with a dub version that does away with any innuendo for a focus on the track's tribal percussion and pumping synth lines. No Apologies.

Review: Showcasing a wide range of sounds has always been very important to Dirtybird head honcho Claude Vonstroke. After 15 years of releasing two track EPs with a crazy A side and a deeper/weirder B side, he's been on to a winning formula all this time - so why stop now! Bringing the sound of the west (best) coast once again in the form of the boompty main room blip, bleep 'n blurp of "All My People In The House" (a big hit at this year's annual Campout we're sure), he then goes even further into the afterhours with studio assistant, friend and modular expert Wyatt Marshall - who collaborates with him on the sensual and evocative B side track "Youngblood".

Originally in rock and metal bands, he has only been making electronic music for about a year, but these new jams courtesy of west coast bass house heroes Dirtybird will be stand out tracks - for all your long New Years weekend DJ sets! From the moody and tripped-out tunnel vision of 'Wobble Like' to the boompty afterhours minimal mischief of "What Do You Want". these surefire party starters pack a serious amount of low end - just as you like it!

Review: Bringing the slightest touches of the Los Angeles beat scene to a framework of club and house music, Justin Jay's music flickers with undercurrents of trippiness, sex and exstacy. It doesn't say this more than in "Don't Trip", a number big on warehouse basslines, frenetic drum machine manipulation and that obscene drop. The original's cleaner fidelity and progressive style makes way for a rougher mixdown and harder alternative in the Fastboi88 re-trip, a version more suited to the basement than bigger arena, with "Like This" offering a more streamlined club number replete with iconic spinback samples and gnarly rave and trance elements.

From his his viral hit "Fried or Fertilized" to his latest collab with VNSSA on "Wavy". He's back again with a new EP, featuring the much anticipated "That's Hot" - a boompty, bass driven and quirked out party starter featuring Oonagi and Big J. This is followed by the druggy minimal tech house groove of "I Miss Your Face" which is perfect tackle for the warm-up or afterhours alike.

Review: The debut album by Dirtybird staple Ardalan Noghre-Kar consists of 11 tracks with an experimental twist, said to tell the story of the San Francisco-based producer's own coming of age tale He tells a story of self-acceptance and the goal towards becoming a perfect person, by way of learning to be yourself in a society where we're forced to hide our true traits and flaws. So yes, it's pretty deep, philosophically, but musically it's as obtuse, bass heavy and as much of a hot-damn party starter that you've come to expect from Claude Vonstroke & Co! Highlights include: the razor sharp bounce n' bass of opener "I Can't Wait", the sensual late night deep house of "Osci" with L.A. songstress Claire George, plus some throwback mid '00s electro house (of the dirtiest kind) on "Mr Good" (feat Party Patty) and the boomin' afterhours vibe of minimal thriller "Strength" (feat Erica Dee).

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: West coast bass house heroes Dirtybird are back, and showing ya'll exactly hows it's done - with none other than label head honcho Claude Vonstroke doin' the biz. After a year filled with lots of collaborations and remixes, he drops his new boompty thriller "Slink". The track is a typically funky, bass-driven minimal tech house jam highlighted by a catchy original vocal that sounds like it could have come from an '80s female rapper. While "Please Oh Please Oh Please" goes deep into the morning hours on this druggy and hypnotic serving of tunnel vision, powered by its weirdo monologue reminiscent of classics such as "Deep Throat".

Review: Berlin-based Swiss tech house veteran David Keno makes his U.S. debut with a release on west coast bass house institution Dirtybird. The Keno Records boss follows up a slew of great releases for other top labels of late such as Toolroom, Hottrax and Ritter Butzke studio with "Resonate" - a bumping, low end driven groove powered by thunderous toms and a chugging bassline. "Non Stop" is more of a slow burning builder, packed with druggy vocal samples, a percolator style groove and bare bones percussion - which is perfect for DJs for breaking things down, or indeed, building things up!
