label profile: Dirtybird

Dirtybird was founded in 2002 during the production of "Intellect," one of the most intensive studies on DJs and producers of house and techno music ever filmed.

The Intellect dvd featured over 40 interviews with legendary producers like Juan Atkins, Orbital, Derrick Carter, Theo Parish, Stacey Pullen, Swayzak, Paul Van Dyk, and countless others. Originally called "Rook Records," director Barclay Crenshaw created the label in order to supply tracks for the dvd soundtrack. With the help of his college friend Nigel Richards of 611 records and newcomer Justin Martin, Barclay Crenshaw (aka Claude VonStroke) tracked over 30 pieces of original music for the dvd.

In 2003, Barclay's friend Christian Martin purchased a massive portable sound system and began throwing outdoor parties in San Francisco called "dirtybird." These parties began to build a solid audience with resident DJs Justin Martin, Christian Martin, Claude VonStroke, Worthy, and Sammy D. Soon after, Barclay changed the label name from "Rook Records" to "dirtybird" in order to tie in with the popular event. The bird logo was derived from a sketch cartoon character Barclay had been drawing since he was 10 years old.

In 2004, "dirtybird" began releasing vinyl to the universe. The first release, Justin Martin & Sammy D's "Southern Draw," was critically acclaimed and established the label as an underground success.
