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.

The heat of summer is upon us and a plethora of new music has surfaced after the holiday weekend! Coming off a huge NIGHT BASS last Thursday night, we can’t help but hunger for bass heavy garage craze that’s sweeping DJ sets across the board. Thanks to the likes of Hannah Wants, AC Slater, and the dirtybird crew carrying the torch, we’ve discovered a gem of producers – such as Three Bar.
This EP has been rinsed around the globe as of late and its jacking energy can’t help but get things escalated quickly. I first heard ‘Movin’ when Shift K3Y opened with it @ NIGHT BASS, and the place went nuts. Listen to the full EP below, and be on the lookout for its release next week (July 14) on Huxley‘s label Saints & Sonnets.

Here’s a special treat for Los Angeles. As part of his new Exchange LA residency, Justin Martin has invited fellow bird, Eats Everything, for a special, all-night, 8-hour b2b set this Saturday in Downtown Los Angeles. The gents will play from doors at 10PM til the lights turn on at 6AM, making for an unprecedented night of some of the best booty-shaking House music around. Make sure to grab your tickets soon as this one is going to be a packed house.
Coinciding with the event this Saturday is a brand new EP out on dirtybird yesterday from Justin and Eats titled Hello Mr. Jello, which you can bet your booty they’ll play to the large room of Exchange. Listen below. √+
First they had a feather fight. Then they did what’s known in the industry as ‘the gettup’ and proceeded to tear a hole into 2013… Now San Fran / Bristol’s finest dynamic duo Justin Martin & Eats Everything return with two more beastly jams:
“Steven Jello” takes us on a deep journey into the groove space continuum. Boasting a strutting cosmic bassline, hypnotic percussion, weeping synth flurries and a timeless house vocal shot, it’s Justin and Eats at their most contemplative. Heads down, feet to the floor, get busy… We have no idea who Steven Jello is, but as he’s inspired a tribute like this, we’re already in love with the man.
“Kong” is so monstrous it’ll have you climbing the nearest skyscraper for safety. You’ll be ducking from the groaning, moaning airplanes overhead. You’ll be air drumming to the gargantuan tub-thumping fills. You’ll be shaking your hairy booty to the snake-like percussion. You’ll be pounding your chest to the rusty organ flourishes. You’ll be asking yourself… Where has this tune been all my life?!
Few co-lab projects resonate with such distinctive shared spirit and sonic camaraderie. It’s a shame Justin and Eats don’t live closer together or we’d have an entire album of this high calibre material by now.
LOS ANGELES – Don’t miss Justin Martin & Eats Everything playing a very special 8-hour b2b set on Saturday, April 5th @ EXCHANGE LA!

2014 should be a pretty exciting year for dirtybird OG, Worthy. With a full length album in his pocket (he’s currently looking for the right home for it), three to four months of free giveaways, and a pair of EPs in the works, it’d appear that Worthy has his production schedule on lock. His brand of Booty Bass has exploded alongside the dirtybird family as of late, and the big bassline sound doesn’t seem to be dissipating in the new year. Download “Get It” below and keep it locked on Worthy’s Soundcloud for more free tracks upcoming.
As I do for most posts involving head dirtybird, Claude VonStroke, I’ll let him address you all himself…
“This is the original 2 hour unedited version mixed live at my house for the fans with all the bad words, full versions of tracks and without any radio tags or commercials on top of it. Encoded at 160kps so don’t try to play tracks in the club they will sound like crap ;)”
Get into it.
One of the many reasons why I love dirtybird so much is because Claude VonStroke writes little notes about the releases he signs, and this one for Nick Olivetti‘s Looping Machine EP has to be one of my favorites.
I wish everyone was like Nick Olivetti. He sends tons of demos and doesn’t get discouraged if we don’t sign them. He keeps working, keeps getting better and never gives up. He came to ibiza and didn’t get to play at our party because the power went out. Did he complain? No…not a peep.
You would never know from meeting him that he is an accomplished audio engineer with releases on tons of labels from Trapez to Kling Klong to dirtybird. So why cant everyone in the world be as cool as Nick Olivetti? I Don’t know but for me, I’m very happy he turned in these sick bangers, because I want to hang out with this guy some more.
Agreed, Mr. VonStroke, agreed. Check this great new 2-track EP out next week.
