Dirtybird is first and foremost a house music label; however, we’re not afraid to stray from the typical four-on-the-floor sound and dive into something a little more obscure and with a lot more breaks. Basically, we accept all types of weird here at Dirtybird Campout.
Here are the Counselors on our lineup who are bringing a more bass-heavy sound to camp this year…
“Excited to be able to entertain the crowd and display new material”
Sounds like: Unique because I bring a lot of elements to every genre I produce in
Musical inspirations: Swizz Beatz, Just Blaze and Alchemist
Bio: Bleep Bloop’s musical world is one of stripped back, bass-heavy beats paired with stark, surreal soundscapes. Aggressive and off the wall sounds weave in and out of heavy drums as he blends genre’s into a low-frequency style that works as well at a festival as it does in your headphones.
“Campout is where I reset all my tunes for the year and try my hardest to blow up people’s heads and hearts”
Sounds like: futuristic 90s hip hop and metaphysical slow jams
Musical inspirations: A Tribe Called Quest, Eric B. and Rakim, EPROM, Gaslamp Killer, Digable Planets, James Brown, James Blake, Dillinja, and many more
“Ready to see the new Campout location and to hang with the Dirtybird crew.”
Sounds like: Precision chaos.
Musical inspirations: Herbie Hancock, Nina Simone, John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Aphex Twin.
“I’ve seen pics from past years of people lounging in hammocks. I am quite excited to locate and exploit these hammocks!
Sounds like: Emo and rap influenced electronic music.
Musical inspirations: Blink 182, Holy Fuck, The Postal Service, 808 Mafia, Metro Boomin, Shlohmo, Jacques Greene, G-Unit, Ryan Hemsworth.
“Excited to meet a lot of new faces and do some fun summer camp activities! Kickball is the best!”
Sounds like: A culmination of hip hop, drum & bass, glitch, deep dubstep and downtempo into one psychedelic bass heavy journey that you’ll just have to listen to to fully understand.
Musical inspirations: DJ Shadow, EPROM, Edit, Noisia, Dave Tipper, Ivy Lab, reso, A Tribe Called Quest, The Mars Volta, Pink Floyd and of course the Dirtybird crew.
“Really excited to hang out and play weird music.”
Sounds like: Emotive, dramatic, and qt are words I would use to describe my music/style. But like, I’m all over the place. I’ll be obsessed with a certain sound one week, and completely indifferent the next.
Musical inspirations: Nicolas Jaar, Bjork, James Blake, Wiley, KiNK, Todd Terry, Bachelors of Science, Tennyson, Porter Robinson.
“We’re just trying to push the envelope within our skillsets and bring a hybrid of both our sounds together. That’s the kind of vibe.” — quote from Fabric London article
Sounds like: “Big, thick, juicy, room-shaking dance floor weapons that ripple with an attitude all of their own.” — Oli Marlo, Fabric London
Bio: The collaboration project of DBC veteran (and Barclay Crenshaw collaborator) EPROM and Alix Perez.
The Whooligan (1/2 of our Soulection Showcase)
“I couldn’t even tell you how many Dirtybird parties I’ve been to as a genuine fan of the music, to be invited to play Campout is like one of those dream gigs… never thought I’d be on their radar like that, but then I’m reminded that the universe works in marvelous ways.”
Sounds like: Deepfuturisticsoulsexyboombapbounce inna old-school style.
Musical inspirations: My mother, brother and sisters really introduced me to my musical foundation and now, my Soulection team and artists, with the gems they discover, they truly have the flyest taste in music. I can also honestly say that some of my musical idols have become my peers these days, and being able to hear their new music and follow them much closer because of social media keeps me inspired on a daily basis.
