Although this series marks the first ever European dirtybird residency, the San Francisco based label are no amateurs when it comes to throwing unforgettable parties. Renowned for their eleven year old legacy of bass driven, funk infused and booty drenched BBQ parties at San Fran’s Golden Gate Park, the dirtybird crew are excited to bring their music focused, laidback family vibes to Sankeys’ basement.
The dirtybird roster is diverse and far-reaching by anyone’s standards, but each artist possesses that unique dirtybird spirit which is soon to become synonymous with the sounds of Thursday nights at Sankeys. While Claude VonStroke focuses on commanding the floor with his strain of tech-tinged, unadulterated bass walloping house, he’ll also welcome fellow label-mate, Justin Martin, whose heavy yet beautifully melodic work on the Ghettos & Gardens LP became one of the biggest releases on dirtybird to date. Rounding out the residencies are Dirtybird’s European representation with cross-genre explorer, Eats Everything, and Poland’s finest electronic exports, Catz ‘N Dogz. Up-and-coming label talents are also expected to make a series of appearances, not forgetting some special guests in the form of past, present or future dirtybird affiliates.
Dirtybird has always been about the music, and the no frills, Void soundsystem-fuelled Sankeys basement is the perfect home for the label’s first family outing on the White Isle.
“I’ve been playing Ibiza for 8 years from DC10 to We Love Space and I am really excited to break new ground and start our own dirtybird label night at Sankeys. We have always had a very tight knit family vibe at dirtybird and this summer will continue our ethos of fun and approachable artists who love their fans. All of our line-ups are booked with artists who have appeared on the label at some point. It’s a very international bunch and I think dirtybird will be a great addition to the amazing parties coming up this summer. I am also very proud to be the only American label with their own night this season and hope that we can add some much needed diversity to the landscape. As always, the dirtybird crew brings fun above all other elements.” – Claude VonStroke
“Dirtybird are ready to have big season at Sankeys Ibiza. We cannot wait to hear those bass heavy birdy beats in our beloved basement!” – David Vincent (Sankeys Ibiza)
