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!

• Mano Le Tough will release his Tempus EP next month
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.
Seems Bristol may not be the only bass-built UK City to spawn true dirtybird talent. Midway up the little island the city of Birmingham is boiling its bins and splitting its subs with the sounds of Hannah Wants and Chris Lorenzo. Hannah & Chris kicked off their year with the mighty ‘Dappy‘, a crew favorite from Food recordings. Hannah has been red hot on tour throughout the UK and Chris is finally stepping out of the shadows of being a ghost writer for over 6 years, now working on several projects including Cause & Effect, collabs with Pete Graham and countless other productions. “Kneadin” has provoked more reaction than almost any other track in the sets of dirtybird this summer hitting a pinnacle at Hideout festival in Croatia when it was played 5 times in one day (over two events) by Justin Martin, VonStroke & Eats Everything!

OKAY, OKAY… before you go “Really? Another ‘Jack’ remix?” – take in mind that we thought the same thing and the ONLY reason why we’re posting this for you guys is because its well worth it. The artwork doesn’t help the argument either, I know… But throughout all the heavier to groovier versions put out, the DC badman Tittsworth has teamed up with co-producer Alex Eljaiek to bring something far off his own beaten path – and its insatiably deep. They don’t stray far from the original, but rather evolve into a tech house spirited rolling bassline that sends this into “after hours” territory. It was even approved by the big wigs at Dirtybird!
