Malware – [Dirty Bird]

Whenever a certain genre and/or subgenre resurfaces after a long period of absence in the public consciousness, a corresponding “renaissance figure” will always arise with it and carry that sound into its new life. Sometimes this can certainly happen with a group of individuals too, thus creating a “scene” that comes with it; in the case of house music’s grand resurgence back into the public eye as far as this modern online landscape is concerned, there is only one person who can definitively lay claim to that title. You would have to look a mile past the obvious if Dirty Bird was not the answer to that fact. Continuing off of plenty of projects that further developed this telling mix of house stylistics that range from acid, lo-fi, and even tried and true jazz all the same, he had fully cemented this development with such landmark releases this year as Brainworks and d&db.nfo — the latter of the two being a collaboration with fellow house purveyor and Eldia Records mainstay Dazegxd, and the former being a solo masterpiece from him that has easily gone down as the year’s overall greatest house offering. Or else it would have, if not for …

d&db.nfo – [Dazegxd] x [Dirty Bird]

House music as a concept alone is seemingly everlasting as we currently stand in this modern age; this is a genre that has adapted and attached its likeness to a number of different adjacent sounds and styles, while staying true to the standard conventions it set for itself as far back as nearly 30+ years ago now. With that being said, it takes a certain amount of telling artistry and sheer creative influence to become known as an act who serves as something of a catalyst for the genre to move further and further into these aforementioned new lanes as they are — taking the genre into new places while still holding its baseline and past-centric ideals so closely in the process. But as though there was any single doubt about it in the first place, this artistic status has come to at least in part define the resounding careers of both Dazegxd and Dirty Bird up to this point. Though the two have certainly come to be known in other circles – with Daze pushing the ever-rising next era of pop and hip-hop forward with his prolific production work in those lanes, while Dirty Bird has done his part …

Brainworks – [Dirty Bird]

The ever-brewing trends of faux-futurism and new-millennium styles and attitudes alike have come to a telling peak throughout this very year. These aesthetic-based approaches that call back to what the future was meant to look like in the late-1990s to the early-2000s have returned in something of a new light, crossing any and all mediums and allowing artists who were influenced by this period in time to flaunt their talents in an all-too-respected manner.    Whether it’s their one-to-one graphic and typeface design work under the Gum pseudonym, or their equally homage-paying ventures into the worlds of house, trance, and other electronica offshoots in the music world under the name Dirty Bird, the work they have put into as far as translating this period into the modern-day landscape is absolutely remarkable in every sense of the word.    Their latest project under the Dirty Bird name is entitled Brainworks, and it conclusively serves as the most telling culmination of exactly what makes these aforementioned claims ring so true in regards to what they stand for and their overall artistic status in this light.    This project is a wholly mind-bending and all-encompassing foray into all things electronica in regards to …

200 For Lunch / Dirty Diana – [Gunna]

There are very few rappers who have managed to become legends in the game after such a short time, and Gunna is one of these people. Sure, he has been grinding for a few years at this point, but you just simply don’t get the same output from other big-name artists that you get from him. It’s almost like he speaks in rhymes and just records everything he says because there doesn’t seem to be enough time in a day to hit the studio and record everything that he releases. WUNNA was clearly a smash hit and the deluxe version basically provided us with an entirely new album, and I’m sure he’s got enough music in the vault to do that one hundred times over. He’s just a machine that never shuts down, and his hard work has clearly paid off and will continue to do so for as long as I can imagine. His continuous grind doesn’t just stop in the studio, though, and he continues to release music videos at a fairly regular rate as well. Most recently, he decided to kill two birds with one stone by releasing a visual for two songs off of the deluxe …
