Pulselocker Live feat. Ardalan (Dirtybird)

21 June 2013 - - The DJ List

 

Range, appeal and a massive dose of nasty, gritty bass are the three chief weaponsevery Dirtybird artist has in his quiver, but ARDALAN seems to be the peak culmination of all those assets in one wieldy point.

This young archer has had the incomprehensible luck to fall into crew with his idols, be reared by their best and given some of their most guarded musical secrets, then hoisted to a platform to blare his prodigious beats from places where most creators can only dream of being.

His mixes, remixes and dubs are known for their sass, energy and wickedly wry samples that snap like a wet towel to the face, but his original tracks arewhere his efforts shine, like those released with Justin Martin—“Mr. Spock,” a 2010 party anthem charted by Diplo and Jesse Rose, and “Lezgo,” charted by Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boyz Noise).

It’s no wonder he’s been given the nod by everyone from Papa Dirtybird himself (Claude Von Stroke) and A-Trak to those who are charting his remixes, like Maya Jane Coles, Audiojack, and Riva Starr.

The greatest strength in Ardy’s music is his ability to whip out hits that work equally well from the dankest basements to the most opulent dancefloors; sounds that satisfy those with diverse tastes who can unite under his single agenda of having a good time.
