DIRTYBIRD Select has just dropped an incredible compilation in celebration of kicking off their 2018 BBQ Tour. The DIRTYBIRD Crew will be smoking meats and spinning beats in Austin, Oakland, and Los Angeles this Summer.
Titled “Filthy Flavor”, it’s no surprise the tracks featured are nothing short of filthy and flavorful. This year’s curation included artists like Desert Hearts head honcho Mikey Lion & Dirtybird crowd favorite Sacha Robotti, UK Heavy Hitter Will Clarke, Midwest Hip-Hop influenced DJ E-Clyps, beat supreme CODES, and many more! We decided to ask some of these artists to share their feelings about signing to the notorious label.
Have a listen to the full compilation here and check the quotes below!

“I couldn’t be more excited to have my first release on Dirtybird! After all, it was accidentally attending Claude VonStroke’s birthday party 10 years ago that set me on the musical path I’m on now.”

“So stoked to be back on one of my favorite labels, Dirtybird, with our collab “Glide” – after Mikey and I released our “Ol’ Dirty Hearts EP” a year ago on Desert Hearts, this is full circle and another great opportunity to celebrate life with music!”

“I’ve always been a fan of the Dirtybird sound, vibe and look. I’m truly honoured to release “Bags” on the label. I hope you all enjoy listening to the tune as much as I enjoyed making it! #Bags <3 ”

“Having a release on Dirtybird is something I’m still pinching myself for to make sure it’s real. After playing Dirtybird Campout last year, I left there determined to make sure I made something that would catch Claude’s ear… excited to to finally be on Dirtybird is an understatement.”

“This was a track that I had started and finished right before Miami Music Week. I was messing around in the studio and ended up making a sound that resembled a bee buzzing. A few hours later “Birds & The Bees” was born. Sometimes I work on a track for weeks and I still don’t think it’s done. But this track just came from somewhere in my head and spilled out into the studio. I remember the first playback after finishing the track and thinking it could be pretty cool, but I honestly didn’t realize how well it would go off until I played it later that week. I’m stoked to put this one out with the Dirtybird family.”

“Being part of this release, It is an achievement of a dream, and even more with a track that I did with the attention in the smallest details and melodies, I managed to deposit all my identity in it and I hope you like it!“
