We’ve featured many a Dirtybird release here on Tech Tuesday and in the process become fairly well acquainted with the San Francisco-based label’s all-star roster. What you may not know is that many Dirtybird regulars have released music on other labels as well, that being said they never seem to stray far from fellow friends and family. We’ve come to know these talented to producers through many BBQs and compilations but now its time to take a look at what they’ve done after they left the nest.
In 2014, Worthy quietly released his debut album “Disbehave” on his own Anabactic Records. The album is now back in the spotlight with a star-studded two part remix LP and one its highlights comes from rising star and fellow Dirtybird labelmate Will Clarke. Clarke’s take on Worthy’s “Stars Attack” is full of some deep booty-shaking bass, shuffle effects, and a detuned synth-line tying it all together. Frequency sweeps shoot through the track like falling stars in a meteor shower. This hidden gem is sure to make for a great secret weapon for either DJ.
Coming off a decadent mix compilation for Hypercolour, British talent Eats Everything is back with a deep tech-y remix of Luca Donzelli & Mar-T’s “Paseando Por Encants.” With some ambient conversation going on in the background Eats Everything throws in a variety of blips, beeps, whirs, gargles, and buzzs in to mix sprinkling them throughout the track to create a rich and varied soundscape. This remix puts out some very good house-y vibes an will be sure to be heard livening up underground dancefloors throughout the summer.
Justin Jay released a new ep on Catz N Dogz’s label Pets Recordings this week. Teaming up with yet another Dirtybird family member, Jay and Kill Frenzy craft an epic eight minute long techno odyssey. “Momentum” is deep and dark full of flanging effects and some subtle mid-2000s Deadmau5 vibes. Sticking true the to the track’s title the song gradually pickups more and more speed as it goes adding in new instruments to the mix bringing the melody and percussion to the forefront of the listeners mind. While a little different than the two producer’s typical fare the payoff for the risk is enormous having created a fantastic atmospheric piece showcasing an artistic range that extends far beyond originally thought.
Until Next Week,
