Dirtybird newcomer Will Clarke released his debut single ‘The Boogie Woogie’ on the coveted San Francisco bass house label this week. Hailing from Bristol, this lad’s two-track EP will most definitely have you bobbing your heads and gyrating in your seats uncontrollably. ‘The Boogie Woogie’ and ‘The Goog’ are instant dancehall groove-worthy tracks so be sure to give it a listen.
Having blazed the US on their recent BBQ tour, the dirtybird crew are back in release mode and proud to present a first ever solo EP from one of the jewels in their crown, namely Ardalan. Our little Iranian brother and resident at chez Martin has previously worked together with his illustrious housemate Justin on breakout hits ‘Mr. Spock‘ and ‘Lezgo.’ Now grabbing the full spotlight himself, Ardalan proves he’s more than got the skills to pay the bills across two brain-frazzling tracks.
Up first is ‘Wake Up’, with its boisterous and rambunctious beats bobbling away underneath whizzing, whirring, fizzing synth lines and tripped out metallic cowbells. It’s the sort of physical, corrugated groove that this label is most celebrated for and proves Ardalan can infuse his sounds with a ton of off kilter charm as well as anyone else in the dirtybird family.
On the flip, ’The No Yeah’ is a colourful brew of malfunctioning machine sounds and raw as coleslaw beats that has blurts of soulful synth and breathy female vocal breaking though. Clipped sirens, fat bass and skipping percussion all nimbly shape shift and have you doing the same for the loveable duration of the track.
Having already impressed in cahoots with Justin Martin, Ardalan disappoints no-one when given this full solo step up, so it’s time you got on board with this exciting emergent talent, if you haven’t already.
Dirtybird’s Justin Jayreleases a mini-documentary with Nest HQ, featuring personal insights on his musical background, experience as a college student while being a producer/DJ, and more.
Justin has had one of his strongest years yet, impressing the dance community with his techno-filled Instincts EP and long-awaited smash, “Bounce and Break,” in between countless gigs. As Justin rolls through the rest of the year, he’s gearing up for a busy Fall/Winter season including more new music such as his Kill Frenzy collaboration, “Lava.”
This is one of my favorite Justin Jay releases, BANGER!!!
