Dirtybird's first lady J.Phlip is really hitting her stride.

Exclusive Premiere: Aradalan's 'The No Yeah'

Fresh off the release of her collaborative Walls EP with Chris Lorenzo, Jessica Phillippe is currently crisscrossing the country on an extensive North American tour. The San Francisco resident recently checked in with Billboard to share the sounds she's currently bumping on the road.

Bicep & Midland - "D-Mil (Dub)"

"Every layer in this track is massive and makes a statement in the song. That phat analog-sounding pitch-shifting bass line is pretty much the best thing to ever hit your body on the dance floor. Then those thick ass drums keep the song moving and banging the whole time. Never a sleepy moment. I love the synths in this too, they are deep but they add energy to the song instead of slowing it down. This the best track in the club right now!"

Billy Kenny - "Work"

"This is one of those techno tracks for people who also love DnB and house. That huge aggressive (without being obnoxious) bass-line and that "work" sample make for a guaranteed banger. It's got that scary warehouse reverb going on here and there, one of those heavy foot kicks, a big build up and a crazy drop. This is the gnarliest track of my sets right now."

Moiré - "No Gravity"

"Moiré is one of my favorite producers right now for sure. He usually swings his beats so far out of the pocket, that it's impossible to mix his tracks. This is one of his more mixable tunes thus far. It's a really deep track but also really powerful in the club. I save it for longer sets and play it in my last hour - when everyone has been dancing so hard for so long and they need to groove it out for a little while. Just listen, imagine being in the middle of a Funktion 1 and feeling all these sounds around your head and your body. It's an incredible track."

Ardalan - "The No Yeah"

"Ardalan always brings the super funk with his beats. I love all those weird glitched-out sounds that add an even bigger funk to the groove. Weird whoops, sirens, zips and vocal stabs come out of nowhere but somehow make sense. Zippy computer tech funk makes dem shoulders drop! New Dirtybird!"

Paleman – "Beezledub"

"Yeah, this track is so hype right now and rightfully so. Swamp81 is by far one of my favorite labels of all time. Vinyl only and they don't f--- around. Every record is special and unique. Personally, I've been playing the Skream edit of this track, but it isn't on YouTube. His edit really emphasizes the bass line and makes the track more techno and dance floor and less weird. It's such a bomb."
