DIRTYBIRD has just welcomed seventeen year-old Cour T. into the flock, confirming that the next generation of DJs and producers has arrived. A prodigy of the decks and in the studio, Cour T.’s sophomore release on the California-based label, ‘Joker Jungle,’ is now out in the wild.
‘Joker Jungle’ puts forth slunk back rhythms with man vs machine sample work, creating unique soundscapes far beyond Cour T’s years. A heady backbeat guides the tune while echoing vocals provide a disorienting buzz. Tech house titan Dennis Cruz slides in with a rework of the track, stripping back the original and disrupting its rhythmic frame with bubbling, wavey synth work.
After producing ‘Black Magic,’ one of Claude’s favorite tracks of 2019, Cour T. signed with DIRTYBIRD at the ripe age of 16, making him the youngest artist to ever join the label. Last week the high-achiever recently made his USA debut at the Dirtybird Campout West.
Hailing from Brazil, the young artist came into his stride as a musician while studying at the Yellow DJ Academy. With the support of one of dance music’s most celebrated families on lock, Cour T. has nothing short of a bright future ahead.
