Dirtybird has been dropping basslines and creating smiles on the dance-floor since January 2005. The iconic bird logo was derived from a drawing Barclay Crenshaw (aka Claude VonStroke) used to draw when he was a kid to make his little brother laugh. Since creating it, VonStroke has A&R-ed some of the most influential house music producers in the world. A short list includes Justin Martin, Catz ‘n Dogz, Julio Bashmore, Riva Starr, Breach, Shiba San, Eats Everything, J Phlip, Style of Eye, Kill Frenzy, and many many more… most of whom had their very first records and even created their artist names for the label.
Earlier this month, Dirtybird announced the Dirtybird Players Fall Tour, touching down in Brooklyn, Las Vegas, Washington DC and our very own Rawhide Western Town!
Claude VonStroke, Shiba San, Walker & Royce, and J. Worra will turn Rawhide’s Riverwalk Lawn into a dance floor.
Walker & Royce will continue their monumental rise within the Dirtybird family this year, joining the Players in DC, Las Vegas, and Arizona following the success of their Bodies Do The Talking EP this summer. Likewise, the venerable Shiba San will be lending his talents for the Arizona and Washington DC dates. To top it all off, DJ Mag’s 2019 ‘Breakthrough Producer of the Year’ J. Worra is also slated to join the Players for their Arizona throwdown.
Dirtybird Players club nights and festival stage takeovers remain a vital piece of the label’s coast-to-coast legacy. It is the enthusiasm of their outrageously dedicated fanbase that fills these evenings with the wacky bliss that has defined the label for nearly fifteen years. Couple this with the musical surprises in store from the constantly evolving Dirtybird family and you have one of North America’s most happening parties.
