If you’ve had your ear to the electronic music floor this past year, you’re well aware that it’s the era of the Dirtybird. This tight knit crew of house/tech/disco madness has risen to the spotlight, and during this rise has brought us Justin Jay. This 21-year-old Los Angeles native already has an unbelievable discography and track record, and shows no signs of slowing. The video above is his hour-long set for Mixmag Los Angeles, and it’s just a taste of what he brings to the electronic arena.

Tis’ the season for giving thanks, and that’s just what Dirtybird veteran Worthy wants to do for all you web surfers out there. Staying true to his camp’s sound, he’s taken Odesza‘s future thinking single “Sun Models” and flipped it into a bass heavy house track fit for the club. The melodic vocals of Madelyn Grant now get a jackin appeal, but Worthy keeps just enough of the dreaminess in the original to carry all the way through. Fans of Hannah Wants, Gorgon City and of course the entire Dirtybird brigade will be all over this one. Grab it below for FREE DOWNLOAD!
It’s pretty safe to say that Dirtybird is on a tear, and we were lucky enough to reserve a sit down with the first lady over at their camp, none other than J.Phlip. Check out our conversation with this crate-digging crowd pleaser, as we cover everything from her debut tour as a headliner, to her snacks of choice…
option4 really is a man of the people. In the past 2 months, the Denver-based DJ/producer has churned out top remixes for Sammy Bananas on Fools Gold and Indian Summer on Sweat It Out – not to mention throwing his own festival Cloak & Dagger that erupted the ever-growing dance music scene in the mile high city. His next play? Give back to the fans by releasing a FREE original on local label Night Supply. “You’re ILL” samples everyones favorite verse from Lil B of the Pack, and keeps things ghetto tech rollin with jackin house appeal. Fans of HNNY, Sacha Robotti, or any of the Dirtybird camp will be all over this one… grab it below!
If you’re at all aware of the Dirtybird crew (you should be), you’re more than likely aware of the various Dirtybird BBQ events they have been throwing over the past months. These shows have done wonders in combining the friendly atmosphere and bouncing bass the label has become so known for. Brooklyn, Detroit, Toronto, San Francisco, and now Los Angeles for HARD Day Of The Dead where they will be taking over an entire stage. Full preview after the jump!

The dirty bird brethren Worthy answered the prayers to everyone who loves the wonderfully weird ‘What About Us’ from Flume & Chet Faker but didn’t have a “club ready” version to play out… here’s what he had to say about it:
Little remix I did of Flume’s amazing “What About Us” tune. I have been in love and infactuated with this track for awhile that I decided to give it the Worthy treatment so I could play it in my sets. I hope you dig it as much as I do.

Following his HARD Summer performance over the weekend, Justin Jay drops his tech-house gem, “Bounce and Break,” for free download. Inspired by the hip-hop jams that he heard at his middle school dances, Justin created this tune that has taken on a life of its own, getting played out by his dirtybird label mates, our own Bones, and more. “Bounce and Break” is a quintessential party-starting track that packs a low-end punch, a halftime breakdown, and a catchy hook – all neatly packaged in a production worthy of your attention, and your hard drive space. Grab your free download here.
LA’s young gun, Justin Jay, is giving back to those who have supported him with the long-awaited release of “Bounce and Break,” the party-starting track that his fellow dirtybird, Claude VonStroke, opened his set with at last year’s HARD Summer. Justin has worked the original DJ Spinn sample into a tech-house jam with tribal rhythms, distorted synth lines, and a halftime breakdown. Catch Justin Jay live this Saturday from 3:05-4:05pm in the Pink Tent at HARD Summer, and stay tuned for the “Bounce and Break” release next week.
