Review: Dirtybird has commissioned remixes of tracks from Walker & Royce's 2017 debut album - and the results are mind-blowing. Jon Tejada, best known for his deep, minimal techno work on Palette and Poker Flat, drops two takes on "My Own Thang". The first, which still features Sophiegrophy's rhymes, is a busy but distinctive workout, while the US producer's elastic bass and spacious drum programming really come to the fore on the dub version. In contrast, Justin Martin & Ardalan's dub take on "Can You Pass That?" is more in keeping with the Dirtybird style, as psychedelic bass tones and a grinding rhythm makes for a wild ride. Walker & Royce's own take on "Role Models" is also distinctive, with a spaced out acid line underpinning the geeky vocals.

Review: Following on from releases on Relief and Crosstown Rebels, Samuel Walker and Gavin Royce have selected Dirtybird as the platform for their debut album. The US pair are sure to surprise with the gentle electronics of opening track "Sunday" and "Role Models", which sees them collaborate with OnCue to deliver a catchy electronic pop track, albeit one that is tethered in grimy bass. However "Best Track Ever" sees them revert to type and adopt the general approach of Claude Von Stroke's label with its cut-up vocals and bleeps bass tones. That said, their penchant for catchy hooks and pop influences is never too far away here and "My Own Thang", which features Sophiegrophy on vocals, is a bubbling, bouncy track, led by insistent, catchy vocals.
