Dirt Monkey releases first full-length record from his 19K label, ‘Primatology’
Hailing from the Denver bass scene, Dirt Monkey has been making cracks in the national dubstep landscape for some time now. Now the newly-founded 19K Records label head has received overwhelming support from the likes of Excision, Zeds Dead, GRiZ, Virtual Riot, Flux Pavilion, and Ganja White Night. After listening to his 14-track Primatology LP, which marks the first full-length record release on his very own label, it’s not hard to see why.
The seismic release actually wraps his equally explosive tour by the same name, whose supporting line-up read a lot like a Who’s Who in the burgeoning dubstep and riddim scenes. Likewise, the album features some of the hottest rising bass talent, with collaborations with DMVU, G-Space, and Tsimba, along with a stunning TECH N9NE cut. A stand-out on the album is “Blue Java,” which enlists fellow low end ambassador, DMVU. Equipped with wonky rhythms, high-pitched synths, and filthy sub bass, the track is the perfect slice of what to expect from Dirt Monkey’s highly-anticipated album.
