Ardalan’s Thunder Tour

Mister Shifter joins Tony DeSaro, Drew Whiteted, Matt Freeman, Oh Shell, Sacha Robotti, and Ardalan.

Range, appeal and a massive dose of nasty, gritty bass are the three chief weapons every Dirtybird artist has in his quiver, but Ardalan seems to be the peak culmination of all those assets in one wieldy point. This young archer has had the incomprehensible luck to fall into crew with his idols, be reared by their best and given some of their most guarded musical secrets, then hoisted to a platform to blare his prodigious beats from places where most creators can only dream of being.

Born in Tehran, Iran, Ardalan Noghre-Kar possesses a peculiar, fresh perspective on music genesis without even trying. His mixes, remixes and dubs are known for their sass, energy and wickedly wry samples that snap like a wet towel to the face, but his original tracks are where his efforts shine, like those released with Justin Martin-“Mr. Spock,” a 2010 party anthem charted by Diplo and Jesse Rose, and “Lezgo,” charted by Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boyz Noise)-and those soon-to-be-released on his own EP with Dirtybird. It’s no wonder he’s been given the nod by everyone from Papa Dirtybird himself (Claude Von Stroke) and A-Trak to those who are charting his remixes, like Maya Jane Coles, Audiojack, and Riva Starr, the last of whom he has an upcoming remix for to be released on Snatch.

The greatest strength in Ardy’s music is his ability to whip out hits that work equally well from the dankest basements to the most opulent dancefloors; sounds that satisfy those with diverse tastes who can unite under his single agenda of having a good time.

LeBoom!

 

Squared’s Mister Shifter and Coma Coz join Feed Me, Ghost Gardens, Jeopardy, and Pot Pocket.

Straight up, nobody keeps the energy of electro alive more fervently than Feed Me. The London-based producer, DJ, and visual artist, born Jon Gooch, has been on the artsier edge of up-front dance music since taking on the moniker around the turn of the decade with releases on Mau5trap and his own Sotto Voce.

Until he debuted his alias Feed Me in 2008, Hertfordshire, England native Jon Gooch was known for his aggressive, hard-edged drum’n’bass productions as Spor. While Spor remained an ongoing outlet for Gooch, the producer quickly gained notice for his dubstep/electro-house hybrids as Feed Me; he signed to Deadmau5’s Mau5trap label and issued “The Spell” (2008) and the album Feed Me’s Big Adventure (2010), as well as the EPs To the Stars (2011) and Escape from Electric Mountain (2012).

“It’s a projection of myself,” Gooch says of the little monster within him. “I don’t know what he is, though. It was just a shape that I liked drawing. He’s just a face with arms and legs.” But don’t let the sharp teeth scare you, “He’s not evil, he’s just mischievous!”

February 2015 saw the release of Feed Me’s latest EP ‘A Giant Warrior Descends On Tokyo’ via his imprint Sotto Voce. Three of the four tracks were premiered by Dancing Astronaut, Mixmag and Less Than 3, here’s what they had to say:

‘To say the track is slamming would be an understatement; “Different World” brings a near-riotous energy that only someone as mischievous as Feed Me could concoct.’

J. Phlip & Worthy

 

Ignyte events and Run614, with support from Squared, I Am Lyfe, and Push Productions presents, J. Philp and Worthy of Dirtybird. DJs Aaron Austen b2b DJ Push and Project Car perform warm up sets with host Jay Davi.

Jessica Phillippe is diehard, born with true grit and skills to pay the bills. Despite her success with the Dirtybird gang, she’s still out there in record stores on the regular… digging, uncovering precious gems and weaving them into her dynamic sets with panache. She’s a hard-working, dedicated lady who refuses to compromise and aims to rock the dancefloor without relying on the most obvious tracks. Production-wise she’s just as fearsome, lacing her tracks with a tough yet bouncy flavour. Her prowess in both disciplines combined with her infectious sense of fun and mind-boggling depth of knowledge make her one of the most revered DJs on the global circuit today.

Worthy is the label head of Anabatic Records and one of the four original members of the Dirtybird Crew. Worthy is not one to be miss as he DJs the most cutting edge tech house coming out in the world.

Restart returns in January for the best night of funky disco and soulful house music with residents Ororo and Dingo8, plus special guest, J. Lettow. No cover. Kitchen open late. Free parking in the adjacent lot.

Behind the decks for 15 years and being known to bring the vibe to dance floor, J. Lettow has had a House music influence most his life. Growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he had an early edge on the music. In his teens his father lived in Chicago, the birthplace of House making his exposure to the funk rise to a new level.

In 1995 J. moved to Cincinnati Ohio, a city deeply rooted with funk and soul music. Bootsy Collins, The Isley Brothers, and Midnight Star are just a few groups that came from the area. J. definitely followed that formula and heritage of keeping the cities funky vibe in his music. In 1996 he started playing music regularly all over the North and Midwest states. Shopping from the legendary Club Head Records in Cincinnati, his collection had plenty of choice picks for the heads.

In 2003 he started Lingo Recordings. With his partners, they sought to give new and established producers an outlet for their music while keeping the house scene alive in their own town. They stay committed to bringing quality dance music on a consistent basis for the house lovers at home and abroad. J. has created his own sound by evolving with music selection as well as production.
