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: One of Ibiza's biggest tickets, Defected throw parties in the same spirit as they release music. With full force and serious knowhow. Here they've curated 40 perfected positioned tacks that don't just represent their vibe, or the spirit of their parties, but also a fitting snapshot of what's going on in house music right now. From Low Steppa to Damian Lazarus, Skream to Claude VonStroke, Josh Butler to The Shapeshifters, the entire tracklist reads (and sounds) like a who's who in house music 2015. Delivered with two mixes and whole host of exclusives, Defected aren't messing around right now.
