If there’s one thing that DIRTYBIRD always does right, it’s dishing out weird, wompy, house music. Their latest release, Wormhole, cannot be ignored. It’s a nasty two-tracker from Dillon Marinez, one of the label’s new rising stars, based in San Diego, California. This is the fifth time Marinez has appeared on the beloved American house label.
Claude VonStroke clearly vibes with Marinez’s sound, and so do we. The lead on the title track of this tune is enough to send any raver into a tailspin. Dizzying synths and a consistent, stomping kick drum are the stars of the show of this one. The B-side, “Facelift,” features a more melodic groove that locks you into a zone with ease. We’re loving the sound of the synths on both of these tracks.
In a statement, Marinez mentioned that these two tracks were inspired by Claude VonStroke’s set at his first Dirtybird Campout:
My first [Dirtybird] Campout inspired both tracks. Claude’s set especially was full of some thick stabby bass which was right up my alley. This sound gave me an idea for each lead and the rest flowed naturally.
