ARTIST BIO

Ten years ago, the DIRTYBIRD label coalesced around a grill party in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Those free parties, thrown using a sound-system bought on layaway, were pivotal in defining the DIRTYBIRD sound and attitude. Ten years later, DIRTYBIRD has proven to be one of North America’s most definitive and fun dance music labels, with its signature blend of techno and house, passed through a hip-hop crunkifier, still getting booties shakin’, sweat flying and underground connoisseurs nodding heads in approval.

Jamie xx

ARTIST BIO

In January this year, Jamie xx stepped aside from the mixing desk of his solitary studio bunker space in Old Street and decided that In Colour was finished. It had been three years since he had began work on the first cut that suggested he had a solo record in him, Girl. Both the title and carefully calibrated, vibrant accompanying graphic design imagery for the album are a deliberate delineation away from the chic monochromes that have marked his work with The xx. “I wouldn’t have called it In Colour if the record had sounded dark”, he notes. When he began the project, not even knowing where it would take him, he was well aware of that possibility.

Ott.

Plantrae

ARTIST BIO

Ott was doomed to be a teenager in the cultural wasteland that was the mid-1980′s provincial England. After a brief period wandering aimlessly through the hairsprayed deserts of New Romanticism and poodle-rock he found refuge in the warm, inviting sounds of Scientist, King Tubby, LKJ, and Prince Far-I and the effortless grace of European experimentalists Neu! and Kraftwerk.

In 2012, a striking new voice emerged from the wider surge of electronic music in the U.S. ODESZA’s Summer’s Gone stood out from the crowd; it was a collection of songs, not just beats; and its irresistible, startling dreaminess, addictive drums and fathoms-deep bass set it apart from the by-the-numbers brutality of EDM’s also-rans. In an age of manufactured internet buzz and carefully plotted hype, ODESZA’s story was refreshingly authentic: A brilliant new duo unveiled their music on the internet, and the world paid attention.
