Pete Graham is on deck for the next release on Shadow Child & Kry Wolf’s imprint, FOOD Music, and he’s called upon some good friends to collaborate with him on the 4-track EP. Specializing in bass heavy house, Pete calls upon the low end gods in the Friends EP, rattling the walls with lower than low basslines and thumping kicks. Studio partner Chris Lorenzo of Cause & Affect (who also collaborated with Graham on the popular Marina Gasolina refix) helps out on all 4 tracks on the release, with dirtybird youngster Mark Starr and fellow Brit, Marc Spence, each getting on a track. Preview all 4 big ones below. √+
In another tasteful move, Claude VonStroke and the dirtybird imprint have launched a new release dubbed dirtybird Players, “a showcase of all the key artists and upcoming talent on the label” and “an up-front taste of the full length compilation and world tour coming this Spring,” according to head bird, Claude VonStroke. In this 3-track sampler, we hear tracks from the young bird, Justin Jay, the OG bird, Worthy, and a third track from Birmingham duo, Cause & Affect, which CvS actually played out for weeks as an unmarked demo before actually realizing who it came from. All three tracks, as you can imagine, are √+, so preview now and pick it up on Beatport next Wednesday the 23rd.
