Not only does Dirtybird consistently put out some of the hottest electronic music, but their curated events and festivals also always knock it out of the park. With the next Dirtybird Campout fast approaching, they’ve been releasing mixes from label members weekly to whet our appetites. Today we have the honor of exclusively sharing Steve Darko‘s mix.

This mix showcases some of the best of Darko’s own catalog, as well some of our favorites like Shiba San and Claude VonStroke. As is the case with most of his work, Darko strikes the perfect balance between gritty, creepy, and cool in this mix The vibe is Phantom of the Opera meets Stranger Things meets basement house music. It puts us in the perfect headspace for a festival set in mid-October—prime spooky season.
