In Conversation with… Ardalan
In 2019, Ardalan released his ‘Mr. Good’ LP, via DIRTYBIRD, who to Ardalan is more of a second family than it is his label home. As a nascent raver living sans parents in San Francisco, the teenage artist began his relationship with the brand at its very first BBQ event in 2007. By 2010 his career set sail with his Justin Martin collaboration “Mr Spock,” and two years later he found himself living with his production partner.
After cultivating his career and giving him a safe place to experiment, Ardalan returns the boundless love and support he’s received from DIRTYBIRD over the years with a forward-thinking record that enters the imprint into an inspiring new chapter.
In 2020 during the lockdown, he released the remix album of ‘Mr. Good’ to follow up the album. I’ve been friends with Ardalan since 2013 when we did a Data Transmission party in Miami. So it was great fun to sit and chat with him about the albums. We also spoke about remixing, his tips for producers and his greatest mistakes and how he got through them.
