It’s officially time campers, Dirtybird Campout’s East Coast debut taking place in St. Cloud, Florida is upon us!
While you’re packing up your sleeping bags and putting together the perfect itinerary, we’re here to help when it comes to creating the perfect soundtrack to your weekend.
There is no need to point out the obvious when it comes to the household names like Green Velvet, Justin Martin, Shiba San, Destructo, MK, Tiga, J. Philip, Will Clarke and of course, Head Counselor Claude because we’re all looking forward to those sets. Instead, here are six names that deserve your recognition this weekend.
*List is in no particular order.*
Stealing the show back in October dropping his secret weapon during the closing family set, Ryan Forever looks to show the Dirtybird faithful what he’s all about Friday evening. “Nasty” may have been the label’s latest release of 2017, but look for him to carry that momentum into the new year with a set sprinkled with a handful of his own original productions.
Move over Claude VonStroke; Fisher has become the poster child for Dirtybird with his anthems “Ya Kidding” and “Ya didn’t simply dominating the scene. However, he is much more than a hit-making producer; it’s about time you see what his DJ sets are all about.
For those who don’t know, Biz Markie is a hip-hop legend who knows his way around the turntables. It’s not too often where you see his name pop up on a lineup, so this is definitely one set you don’t want to miss. We’re talking history here, folks!
Considered the new kid on the block, up-and-comer Dateless is the latest promising talent making ripples around the Dirtybird community. Making a mix showcasing the infectious Dirtybird Campout East Compilation, this groove enthusiast looks to show campers what the hype is all about firsthand.
Being the true definition of DJ with her impeccable ability to read a crowd accompanied by a flawless track selection, Mija is always one to watch simply because you don’t know what you’re going to get. Plus, with an EP on the way, you might even hear some unreleased goodies.
San Francisco’s Worthy knows how to throw down a proper bass-driven set that will have you moving and grooving without even realizing it. Saturday night at the Bass Lodge, be there or be square.
