Dirtybird captain Claude Vonstroke has released previews to the tracks off his upcoming album, Urban Animal. One of the most anticipated releases coming up on Dirtybird Records, Urban Animal is produced with such precision that every beat is as tasteful as the last. Dirtybird Records has been pushing their label beyond the music and have cultivated a following that is beginning to create more of a lifestyle, than a music label. The unique sound coming from the San Francisco based label is an intoxicating tech funk that keeps you constantly thirsty. Make sure to check out the previews below and pre order your copy today!

“Stuck in the 9-5 grind, stifled by the impersonality of constant social media and mobile interaction, contemporary urban life can be suffocating. For a certain breed, release cannot be found in the vast, unpopulated great outdoors. Urban Animals congregate in heaving warehouses, seeking solace in the liberating beats of the kick drum. They are bound not by association, but through a shared experience of primal relief felt in those shadowy, dance floor corners swelling with the sounds of low end frequencies and brazenly sculpted grooves. This is the Urban Animal’s jungle.”
