Christian Burkardt is a hot talent right now and both his live and dj sets are said to be legendary. Fusing wave, hip hop, and clubmusic all together, Christian is the man. We have invited him to do a Live PA for us. His live sets are always changing and evolving and are made up of songs that are exclusively created for the specific events that he plays at. Even tracks that have already been released, are all integrated into newer arrangements that constantly keep changing. Get ready to get your minds blown. Seriously.
Frederico Molinari is a resident dj at one of the world’s biggest and hottest events called Time Warp. Playing alongside Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano and Steve Bug regularly, Frederico knows whats up when it comes to taking the crowd on a journey. He currently runs Oslo recordings and Love Letters from Oslo and is the label boss. Artists such as Johnny D, Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts, Ray Okpara, Mara Trax, Christian Burkhardt, Reboot and even the label boss himself can all be found releasing bomb after bomb through these labels.
On FRIDAY AUGUST 28th, 2009, Airdrop is back to partying, this time with a game called SCRAMBLE, SCRABBLE. For the special occasion, Sir Tim Green who seems unstoppable when it comes to putting out some of the highest quality productions will be flying all the way from the UK for his NYC debut!
To join Tim, will be two other filthily serious Dirtybiiirrrds: Airdrop favorite Tanner Ross, as well as special guest, visiting us from Mexico, el Señor Itzone. Having laid their eggs in the shapes of records, they now need some savage scrambling.

Over the years, Michael Robertson, the man who founded pioneering digital music service MP3.com, has never hesitated to make a prediction about the sector’s future.
“It’s not a business,” Robertson has told me often in the past about ad-supported music sites. Frankly, in the past, I didn’t pay much attention. I do now.
The man who has fought more high-profile battles with the record industry than anybody in technology, and whose experience in digital music is nearly unmatched, has never appeared more prescient. He told me two years ago that ad-supported music sites would perish. The licensing fees required them to pay a penny, or some fraction of that, each time a service streamed a song to a user’s computer, and that was too high to sustain a business. And now just look at the sector. It’s a mess. [Read More]
After 20 years of being and becoming an institution, Warp Records is nearly impossible to sum up in one weekend of shows or one box set, no matter how extravagant. And yet the label—alternately christened Weird and Radical Projects or We Are Reasonable People—thus observes its two-decade anniversary in September, weathering changes in fickle music fashion and surviving the 2001 death of co-founder Rob Mitchell. Justifiably, they’re celebrating with both a multi-night, multi-venue, multi-media birthday party (much of it free, all of it aurally cataclysmic) and, for those who prefer objects to experiences, the Warp20 collection, whose size and breadth rival both Arthur C. Clarke‘s lunar monolith and Ace Hardware‘s common doorstop. [Read More]
