At the end of every year most labels and publications look back and reflect on what has come before, re-packaging old tracks together or making top ten lists. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m always trying to find some big new records at the end of the year so I can go play something fresh, so IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢d like to present the DIRTYBRD New Years Special.
Here are seven new bangers for your holiday DJ sets. The tracks are all new & most of them are by new talents on the label. Fresh faces include veteran German producer David Keno, an all new act called Jaded, Sirus Hood from Paris, My Cat Snoop, Mikey V, Wood Holly & Sage Armstrong. Of course we have a few guys who have been on the label before, Ardalan, Genghis Clan, and Nick Olivetti.
All the tracks work great in the club which was the main criteria for the compilation, no headphone b-sides here (although we still love those too!). Happy holidays to everyone.
Lightly placed on the edge of that chair your mother gave us
On our wedding day
I numbly listen
in solemn dismay
For your tyres on the drive
You paved last year.
Let me guess:
A call from New York? Paris?
Or that girl from the Christmas party with the black dress?
Her hand gliding up your arm
On the terrace of that bar
You promised to take me.
A compromise of our life reflects in the eyes of the tight skinned girl
You finish work on time for
As once more
I sit waiting up
For you not to come home.
In darkness my red wine
Spills from the glass onto the chair
As I stare at the wall we painted as one
That Sunday in July
Before the lies started to fall and
The evening apology calls stopped.
The door crawls open
I’m still in the chair
Eyes fixed on the wall
You’ll tell me it’s work
I won’t look hurt
At the lipstick on your shirt sleeve and
Together we’ll leave
Take the stairs
To the bed we still share.

“Pardon my intrusion, Mademoiselle.” Startled by a tap on her
shoulder, Belle stopped scanning the room for Luc and whirled around,
coming face-to-face with a tall, blonde man with discerning blue eyes.
sorry. I didn’t mean to frighten you,” he said. “I’m Inspector Nolan.”
He flashed a badge and waved his mobile phone in front of her face, the
screen bearing a smiling image of Luc wearing a three-piece suit. “Do
you know this man?”
Pretending to study the photo, Belle frowned,
looking down at the picture and back at the detective. “No,” she lied,
“I’ve never seen him before in my life. Who is he?” Belle glared daggers
at the open-mouthed concierge, daring him to contradict her.
“I’ll just see about your taxi, Madam,” Jefferson gulped, scurrying away.
“His name is Luc d’Or. You are certain you haven’t seen him?” the detective pressed.
she detect a hopeful note in the inspector’s voice? She couldn’t
pinpoint the reason for her suspicion, but it seemed as though he wanted
to be wrong. “Absolutely,” she verified.
“It’s just that you appear to be looking for someone,” he observed, peering over her shoulder.
breath caught in her throat, and she fixed her gaze on the front of his
shirt as the detective glanced around the hotel lobby, his well-trained
eyes seeking out all the dark corners and camouflaged spaces. The
blonde pixie-like creature accompanying him scrutinized Belle, patting
the handcuffs attached to her belt in a silent warning.
