Dirtybird is taking a listen back to some of the finest, dark gems from across the label catalog with the release of ‘Heavy Heaters’, the 12-track compilation out now.
After 17 years of releasing music, Dirtybird Records has put out an extensive range of genres and styles, including creating some of their own. Marking the label’s second compilation of 2022, ‘Heavy Heaters’ strikes a different tone than its predecessor ‘Deep Cutz’. Exploring the experimental side of techno and house music, Dirtybird has selected the edgier sounds from its catalog for ‘Heavy Heaters’, music made for a dark room, massive stage, dank warehouse or sweaty underground.
The compilation kicks off with an exclusive, previously unreleased edit of Claude VonStroke and EPROM’s 2018 collaboration ‘Grenade’. The Detroit edit offers a shorter break and sets the tone for the compilation. Next up is Shaded’s fast-paced ‘Holla Atcha Boy’ from 2020 followed by a pair of 2019 releases, Marc Houle’s minimal monster ‘Min And Soda’ and BOT’s eerie ‘You Feelin Good’.
The next track is ‘Raw Motion,’ a collaboration from up-and-comers Dimiz and Baley off Dirtybird’s 2018 ‘Dirtybird Campout East Coast’ compilation. The compilation continues with Justin Jay’s attention grabbing ‘Like This’ from his 2019 ‘Don’t Trip Like This’ EP followed by UK duo MDE’s bass-heavy ‘Game Over’ off the 2018 ‘Dirtybird Campout West’ compilation.
The compilation takes a powerful turn with Claude VonStroke’s 2017 hit ‘Tiny Tambourine’ off his ‘Works Well With Others’ EP. Lubelski keeps the momentum going with his 2019 tech-house heater ‘Impulse Response’. GetCosy’s ‘Izzo’ serves as the compilation’s most recent cut, coming off the Russian house producer’s 2021 ‘Sick Motor’ EP. The compilation closes with ‘Telegram’ from Florida native C.H.A.Y. off the 2019 ‘Dirtybird Campout West Coast’ compilation and ‘Bonesaw’ from Hungarian tech-house DJ Emery Warman.
Dirtybird invites you to explore its edgier side. Whether it’s the first time your ears have heard these cuts, or you’re rediscovering old favorites, turn the lights down and turn the volume up.
