Back at the end of 2004 when i was just beginning to set up this tiny label called dirtybird I would have never believed we would be here at EP number 50! We've had CDs, secret releases and album remixes so technically we hit 50 release long ago, but it's still very special to see the words "dirtybird 50" on a record.
The three tracks I've chosen for this release go through a wide range of our sound. "Cyclone" by Samuel Dan and Feygin is a throwback to the way dirtybird records sounded back in 2006, raw and fun with big drums. But "Cyclone" sounds amazing compared to the sound quality of some of those old records we all love, a definite update to the old db vibe.
B-Ju's "Babbel Net" is his follow-up appearance to last year's bomb track "My Sneakers" that all of us played 1000 times. This is more in the smooth 808 style of dirtybird while still giving you some punch and melody. This record works really well for me and this groove crossover into a house set no problem.
Last but not least is Maelstrom's "You Play." This is a real monster, not so much for the house heads but instead for those of you who like to cross genres and explore the bass regions during your sets. Definitely not your friendly deep house record this one is a real db banger in the tradition of big dirty bass we love here in San Francisco.
Thanks for listening.
