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.

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.
