A nice surprise from Claude Vonstrokes Dirtybird label today: two free downloads in the form of Justin Martin (& Ardalan) VIP Remixes.
Martin & Ardalan began the giving gesture a few days ago, posting the first VIP of their contribution to Dirtybird’s Tenth Anniversary Compilation, “Function” feat. PartyPatty on Martin’s Soundcloud as a teaser for his upcoming Hello Clouds album. Aside from Shiba San’s contributions to Dirtybirds’ 10th, “Function” was a definite favorite of mine and I’m thrilled Dirtybird has now released a new cut. With its unique progression and satirical hook- “At the function I shake my ass/at the club I shake my ass” this blatant indictment of vacuous club culture had me in stitches from the drop. I mean, because we all know those girls, the ones who save the ass-shaking for the most exclusive venues where it won’t go unappreciated.
The “Function” remix is paired with an older Justin Martin VIP- “Don’t Go”, released around Thanksgiving last year. One of his most popular tracks to date, this track was played in “almost everyone of my [Martin’s] sets during that touring period, and is sure to strike listeners who’ve caught a Justin Martin set since he premiered this edit at last years’ Dirtybird Barbeque.
Both tracks are available to download from the Soundcloud link below.
