Ultra Music Festival may be over, but Billboard isn’t done sharing some great conversations from the eventful weekend in Miami.
Billboard’s Zel McCarthy sat down with Claude VonStroke, DJ/producer and leader of Dirtybird Records, along with cohort Justin Martin and some of the techno label’s most promising up-and-comers at the Raleigh Hotel’s pool party.
“We release lots of records and throw great parties,” VonStroke says of the San Francisco label. In that spirit, he introduces two of his newest signees: Kill Frenzy and Justin Joy, both of which provide remixes on a forthcoming re-imagination of VonStroke’s 2013 album “Urban Animal.”
Jay describes what it’s like to tour with the DirtyBbiard crew while still in college and Kill Frenzy mentions the reaction his track “Make that Booty Clap” often gets from female fans.
Martin, one of the label’s original artists, shouts out his upcoming record (in collaboration with Eats Everything) titled “Hello Mr. Jello,” which is due March 31.
All four Dirtybird-ers shared their favorite and least favorite aspects of the trip to Miami. For all this and more, check out the video above.
