Sun-soaked summer camp fun will still be alive and well this fall thanks to the folks at the legendary house label and music collective Dirtybird. From October 4-6, the West Coast edition of this year's Dirtybird Campout festival will feature performances by artists like Cut Chemist, The Librarian, Claude VonStroke, Justin Martine, J.Phlip, Mija, Jhené Aiko, Nastia, Justin Jay, Shiba San, Jimmy Edgar & Machinedrum, and many more. Fans of the festival can already look to expect plenty of light-hearted and playful silliness with events like tug o war, dodgeball, arts n crafts, aquatic activities in the lake, yoga classes, nature hikes, comedy + drag queen shows, BBQ parties, and 60+ other activities.
Similar to past Campouts, this year's lineup will also feature some incredible up-and-coming acts -- like the talented producer and DJ Lubelski. This fast-rising artist is quickly becoming a staple name across the industry following his breakthrough 2018 Revolution EP on Audiojack’s Gruuv Recordings, a spot on Beatport Top 15 favorite Favela Funk EP, the Anabel Englund featured Call U Rite Back EP on Desert Hearts Recs. Not to mention appearances at festivals like Desert Hearts Festival, Decibel Festival, and performances at notable venues like San Francisco’s Halcyon, New York’s Schimanski, Los Angeles’ Sound Nightclub, and many more. Alongside fellow Los Angeles DJ and producer Rybo, the pair have launched Percomaniacs Records. Straddling the line between psychedelic house to groovy techno, Lubelski delivers masterfully crafted vibrant dance music that stimulates the mind, the soul and the dancefloor. Today, he has prepared for EARMILK an exclusive playlist to get fans excited for what's to come at this year's Campout.
"Since RYBO, Wyatt Marshall, and I will be going back to back to kick off the Saturday afternoon, I picked some of my current day time cuts." Lubelski
FreedomB - Bambaataa (Luna City Express Remix)
"I personally love this one because I’ve been a huge fan of Luna City Express for years. We were able to get them on Percomaniacs by having them remix our homie from Berlin, FreedomB. It’s an absolute ripper for afternoons or early morning excursions."
WWTLT? (Lubelski Remix) - Magic Bronson
"This was a remix I did for my friends Magic Bronson, who are a very talented Electronic Indie band. I did the whole thing with the intention of making something that could be played at any time of day."
A.I.É (The LL Club Mix) - La Compagnie Créole
"Gotta give it up to this absolute pioneer of a DJ. For those of you who don’t know Larry Levan, he was known for his decade-long residency at the legendary Paradise Garage in NYC. This one’s got a bit of everything I love in a track—world inspired percussion, a funky bass line, and just an overall super solid groove. Vocals are super fun on the club mix, but the dub is equally as good!"
Don’t Lead Me (Drumapella) - House Master Baldwin feat. Paris Gray
"They don’t call us the Percomaniacs for nothing! You can expect a ton of drums in our set at Campout. This one is another classic from the 80s and exemplary of a perfect track in my opinion."
You Say (James Dexter Remix) - Gruuve
"James Dexter has been on fire recently. Whatever has been my mantra growing up in Southern California. Throw some nonchalant vocals over a percussion-driven beat and you’ve captured my vibe perfectly."
Locals Only - ANOTR, Toman
"Chunky, minimal, and trippy. Sometimes you just gotta play music that makes you question why one would ever fist pump to music. This is one of those tracks."
Bissao (Pilooski Edit) - Francis Bebey
"I fucking love Francis Bebey. A pioneer of the psychedelic African electronic music movement in the 80s, Francis Bebey was one of the most innovative producers and songwriters of all time in my opinion. Pilooski does an exceptional job modernizing this timeless tune."
REAL DE CATORCE - Zombies in Miami
"Big bongos, massive synth chords, disco elements. I can see myself ushering in the sunset or sunrise with this one."
La Dorada - Tibi Dabo
"Super young producer, far beyond his years in talent. His creativity is unparalleled to any other emerging producer I’ve heard. He’s already getting big nods from guys like Damian Lazarus and Sasha."
Legs - Pachanga Boys
"Just so classic. Pachanga Boys hit me right in the feels every time. This one is one of my all-time favorites."
The Percomaniacs crew will also be hosting an inaugural party in downtown Los Angeles at an unannounced warehouse location from 10 pm to late this coming Friday, September 13th. Label heads RYBO and Lubelski will play alongside Percomaniacs resident artist and rising West Coast talent, Wyatt Marshall, as well as some very special guests. For tickets and more info, click HERE
