Dirty House™ (Label / Mixtapes / Events) was founded in 2007 by Dutch DJ and producer Björn Franken (aka Vato Gonzalez) as a platform to release the music that was at the time deemed “too dirty”. As a fronteer within the industry he sought an outlet to close the growing gap between the audience and the artist. As you most likely don’t think inspecific genres, neither do we. Music is just what it is and within the broad spectrum of EDM we release the type of tracks that are produced for one single purpose; rocking your socks!
7 years passed since then and although the philosophy never changed, we greatly exanded our initial platform to a record company that focusses on releases on Beatport, Spotify and iTunes but still loves to give you our very best music for free if we get the chance. Nearly a million followers on Soundcloud, over 100.000 on Facebook and releases of Vato Gonzalez, Martin Garrix, Skitzofrenix, Dyna, Stefan Vilijn, Young Punx and many more on the main and Crowd Control sublabel. Support grew from the millions of downloads and views by the audience on the mixtapes to support on the releases by A list tastemakers like Hardwell, Afrojack, Nicky Romero, Bingo Players, Axwell, Steve Oaki, W&W, Diplo, Dada Life, Laidback Luke, Blasterjaxx, Kaskade, GTA, Chuckie, Quintino, Alvaro, Angger Dimas, Armand van Helden, DJ Zinc, Thomas Gold and many more next to broad radio support by BBC Radio1, CapitalFM & KissFM.
Next to the mixtapes and releases we also host Dirty House label nights and dedicated Dirty House festival areas in combination with 010Bookings. These usually sold out events are all about the initial philosophy behind the label, non-stop raw relentless energy! Our motto; “Rock hard or die trying!”
