Dillon Marinez ‘No Pressure’ [DIRTYBIRD]


San Diego born and raised DJ/Producer, Dillon Marinez releases a bass-heavy EP, ‘No Pressure,’ out now on Dirtybird. 

‘No Pressure’ is filled with some undeniably wobbly bass, funk, and house-tinged tracks sure to keep a crowd on their feet. Originally put out through Dirtybird’s exclusive subscription service, Birdfeed, Claude VonStroke road-tested the EP via Dirtybird flagship events such as Campout and CampInn. After the wildly responsive reactions on the dancefloor, the DB team knew the two-track EP deserved a full label push.

2021 marks a hot streak for on the rising producer.  Marinez’s second EP, ‘No Pressure’ follows from the earlier 2021 release ‘Dance For Me’, and ‘Get It’ EP which was released on Shiba San’s Basement Leak label last month.

Taking inspiration from funk, hip hop, and reggae, Marinez credits his father and brother for exposing him as a kid to the multi-genre sounds that shape his music style today. A bassist since childhood, it was only natural for Dillon to be drawn to the ebbs and flows of house music. Learning Ableton in college, Marinez was able to incorporate a blend of rhythmic elements to create his unique bass lines and incredibly catchy beats known to captivate crowds.

Releasing music on Dirtybird marks a full-circle moment for Dillon, as he has previously named OG DB legends like Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin and Shiba San as sources of inspiration.

Marinez invites fans to join him on his rhythmic journey and stream ‘No Pressure’ today. Check out ‘No Pressure’ on Data Transmission, and grab it on Beatport.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
