DA Premiere: Ardalan – Thunderdad (Original Mix)
Things are heating up rapidly for Dirtybird affiliate Ardalan following the successes of his infectious collaboration with Justin Martin, “Function,” and his debut EP, The Yeah / No. The Iranian producer has quickly made a name for himself within Claude Von Stroke’s label, thanks in part to his unique blend of serpentine tech house beats and groovy Californian sensibilities.
Moments away from dropping his second solo EP and kicking off his Thunder Tour alongside Sacha Robotti, Ardalan has shared the EP’s title track, “Thunderdad.” An exemplary production that epitomizes Dirtybird’s signature style, “Thunderdad” features an eclectic mix of acidic zips, shuffling beats, and robotic sounding synths, all backed by gravelly vocals.
Ardalan’s Thunderdad EP will be released in full via Dirtybird on March 18.
