DIRTYBIRD Record’s first release of 2019 is an instant anthem. Will Clarke and Nick Monaco teamed up for this track, named Like a Girl, and it’s a perfect blend of both DJ’s artistry. While the song is an undeniable hit for techno lovers of all genders and walks of life, it definitely appeals to the badass ladies who love booty percolating.
Like a Girl is deep in the techno category and a bit of a departure from Clarke and Monaco’s usual house-heavy sound. The song is totally unique, and video-game inspired synths give it a sinister nature. The staple house beat of DIRTYBIRD remains, though, and repeating quirky lyrics gives the track its edge. The song declares: like a girl, I talk like a girl, I walk like a girl, I feel like a girl. There isn’t really a femme-raver I know who won’t get the freak down to these lyrics, and there isn’t a raver of any kind that wont appreciate the song as a whole. Before the drop, Clarke and Monaco strip back the synths and give us a raw beat with lyrics, bringing us into the house realm before hitting with a crescendo techno.
Will Clarke, Nick Monaco, and DIRTYBIRD have a reputation of rejecting conformity, and this track thrives on the idea of breaking down heteronormative structures in the EDM space. Like a Girl is an accomplishment, as it is pure fun, an anthem for clubbers, and totally unique. Give it a listen.
