Founded by house music heavyweight Claude Von Stroke, Dirtybird Records has been dropping deep basslines and bumping dance floors since 2005. Claude recruited some of the most influencial names in house music for his record, and most of whom had their very first records and even created their artist names for the label.
A short list of these Dirtybirds includes Justin Martin, Catz ‘n Dogz, Julio Bashmore, Riva Starr, Shiba San, Eats Everything, Style of Eye and many many more. Two artists from the label who I want to highlight are Kill Frenzy and J.Phlip, as they will be performing here in AZ on December 10th to represent Dirtybird Records together.
Belgium born and Berlin raised, Seba, also known by stage name Kill Frenzy is known for conjuring up deep, menacing and dark dance floor vibrations that get people well and truly under his spell. Growing listening to Dave Clarke, Green Velvet, Jeff Mills and DJ Funk to name a few, he has picked up a penchant for house and techno with a sleazy attitude. Kill Frenzy signed with Dirtybird in 2012, and took off as an artist. After teaming with Dirtybird, KF put out his biggest track yet, ‘Make That Booty Clap’. It was picked up and spun by global stars like Skrillex, Soul Clap and Jamie Jones and became a massive anthem on the festival circuit.
After graduating college with a degree in Engineering, Jessica Phillippe, also known as J.Phlip, chased her dreams as a musician. She bounced from Chicago to San Fransisco and then connected with the Dirtybird crew claiming her spot as the first female artist on the label. J.Phlip then formed her flavorful yet stern sound and reputation for playing dynamic sets. On DB Records J.Phlip released ‘Coefficient’ and ‘Say My Name,’ receiving support from names like Tiga, techno dons, Surgeon, Dave Clarke and a bunch of other influential heads.
These two artists definitely benefitted from joining forces with Dirtybird records, and helped the record itself grow as well. On December 10th, J.Phlip and Kill Frenzy will be coming together at Shady Park to represent their roots and love for deep house music. If you’ve got a love for deep music, one of these artists, or even for Claude Von Stroke, you’ll want to catch this show for some of those deep vibes, and Dirtybird Records celebration.
