In 2013, Claude VonStroke launched the first lineup of Dirtybird Players, which introduced the label’s roster of then up-and-coming acts like Eats Everything, Catz 'n Dogz, Justin Martin, and Kill Frenzy. Now a decade later, we brought back that concept with a new slate of Players. These fresh faces of the flock represent the next generation of artists to shape the sound and culture of the label.
Serving as a spotlight for the next class of Dirtybird Players, the compilation kicks off with DJ Glen and Bruno Furlan’s famed ‘Another Planet’ VIP mix. A boisterous edit of the Brazilian duo’s 2019 collaboration, the fans literally demanded this until we put it out and now it heres.
The compilation continues with another VIP edit from San Francisco favorite Mike Kerrigan of his 2020 Claude VonStroke-assisted Dirtybird debut ‘I Caught A Vibe’. Along with Arnold & Lane’s ‘Amplify Your Vibe’, Israeli newcomer Arad Maor’s ‘London Town’, rising SF producer n808’s playful ‘The Cats Pajamas’ and Mike Kerrigan returns with an eerie followup to his recent Liquid Dreams EP with ‘Dark Play’.
The compilation progresses with the flavorful energy of “Cha Cha Cha’, a collaboration from Brazilian duo Malik Mustache and Las Vegas producer Teklow, before diving into the mystical sounds of Florida-based duo Two Tails for ‘Mind Game’. Rounding out the compilation, Lennard Ellis offers a fizzy groover with ‘Bubble House’ and LA-based music maker Jaksan closes with the psychedelic tones of ‘Deeper’.
A colorful 10-track collection showcasing the experimental sounds and genre-defying talent of this year’s Dirtybird Players, the esteemed label’s latest compilation arrives with a live tour, just as did in 2013.
