Dirtybird BBQ

April 4, 2014 Posted by admin at 10:32 am

With word that the dirtybird bbq is making its way to Australia in 2014, Claude Von Stroke’s first compilation in Australia comes off the grill cooked to perfection. See his words below.

The new dirtybird compilation is loaded with 11 great tunes I have been collecting for over 6 months. Most notably, the Shiba San “OKAY” record has absolutely been destroying every dance floor known to man. We have lots of big birds like Justin Martin, Catz ‘N Dogz & Justin Jay on this, plus a ton of great newcomers and friends making appearances.

The dirtybird BBQ was founded as a small get together in Golden Gate Park thirteen years ago. We’ve had the same core line-ups and even the same chef, Grillson, since the beginning. But three years ago, the free party in the park got too big and our permit was pulled. The city of San Francisco could no longer handle the amount of people showing up to the event.

Ever since then we have been trying to think of way to bring back the vibe of the BBQ park party. This year we finally put together a team that is able to take the BBQ party all across North America and Europe. We will be starting in Miami and ending in San Francisco so make sure to come grill and chill with us sometime this year. This compilation is a celebration of the O.G. dirtybird BBQ vibe. I hope you enjoy the music.

Love,
VonStroke

Hold Me (Young Franco Remix)

March 19, 2014 Posted by admin at 6:08 pm

Both KILTER and YOUNG FRANCO have the world at their feet. KILTER, who has just finished touring with THE KITE STRING TANGLE, is now playing spectacular sets of his own across the country.

The Sydney producer has created stellar remixes including his extremely popular adaptation of SNAKADAKTAL’s track ‘Fall Underneath’, and has had huge success with his debut original ‘Hold Me’ in 2013.

YOUNG FRANCO is on a similar trajectory. After we premiered his debut EP ‘FUTUREFUNK’ back in December, the 19-year-old producer from Queensland has toured Australia and played a variety of shows including Brisbane’s own Valley Fiesta.

‘Hold Me’ features YOUTH and was one of the most popular dance tracks of 2013. The original mix was quite slow and had light vocals dance over very deep synths and percussion. With a tropical tone, ‘Hold Me’ is quite vibrant, and YOUNG FRANCO has turned this up by ten with his remix.

Utilising beaming synths and deep distorted vocals, very light marimbas hold the tropical modes in place whilst also adding a piece of smooth funk with a melody that gets you grooving from the first listen.

There hasn’t been much word on what will feature on YOUNG FRANCO‘s EP, or when it will be released, but keep your eyes peeled.

Who is Arkon Fly?

March 12, 2014 Posted by admin at 1:34 pm

Multi instrumentalists, writers, producers and vocalists, Big Jam and Bixby are the London duo Arkon Fly. Already winning plaudits from Skream, Duke Dumont and Julio Bashmore, their debut ‘Through The Fire’ signifies the start of an electronic soul /funk scene coming out of the progressive UK underground. ‘Through The Fire’ brings a soul and blues inflicted vocal hook with a deep funky house beat, melodic synth stabs and is accompanied by a suitably heady video.

Having signed on with garage imprint Locked On in the UK (home of such seminal releases from The Streets, Artful Dodger, Todd Edwards) and etcetc in Australia, the 12” release of Arkon Fly’s Through The Fire will signify the label’s comeback with the original don, Nick Worthington at the helm.

Basing their performances on live instruments and vocals, all performed by the duo, their debut show at London’s infamous XOYO promises a meeting of arresting musicianship with playful showmanship for a heady dance floor celebration.

The live show will come 1 week before the single release of ‘Through The Fire’ through etcetc with a steamy stream of successive singles leading towards an LP later in 2014.

Danny T & James Curd Apply Changes

February 19, 2014 Posted by admin at 1:30 pm

The German #1 single from Faul & Wad Ad vs. PNAU receives a hypnotic house revival with two local remixes. The big digger, Danny T serves a deep house delight with a ‘Changes’ remix that will warm your senses and bury you under the dancefloor.

“I wanted to do a mix that would cross over many dance floors, from a bass heavy sweaty back-room at 4am, to a main room warm-up weapon.”
- Danny T

James Curd’s remix throws it back to the mesmerizing PNAU hook and gives ‘Changes’ the cruising cosmic flavour he knows how to serve up so well.

“It’s been almost 10 years since I first remixed ‘Enuffs Enuf’ for PNAU. I’ve always liked and followed their music since then. When I had a chance to remix “Changes” I really wanted to give the song and vocals a nostalgic feeling with a contemporary approach. I hope the fun I had remixing it translates to your listening experience on the dancefloor or on the car radio!!”
- James Curd
