DIRTY SMART 2011 PRESS RELEASE...


As 2011 draws to a close, let’s reflect on what a year it has been for cult clothing brand Dirty Smart.

Launched back in ’09, balls deep in recession, it’s been a meteoric rise for the clubbers clothing label. Rocking dancefloors, and appearing on the backs of some of the world's greatest DJ’s including deadmau5, Laidback Luke, & Dada Life to name but a few.


Established artists aside, 2011 saw Dirty Smart add new cutting edge talent to their roster. Dim Mak’s Blatta & Inesha (Italy), the rambunctious StereoHeroes (France), Judgement Sundays rising stars The Squatters (U.K), and 16 year old electro young-blood Caveat (U.S).


Oli Hopkinson a.k.a Mr Dirty Smart: “The clubbing industry’s dope. There are no high horses or ‘get-the-f*ck-away-from-me’ personalities. First contact with the Italian duo ‘Blatta & Inesha’ was an email simply reading, “YO. Let’s take over the world…”
That kind of correspondence doesn’t typically happen between myself and menswear buyers!”

This summer, D.S hosted its weekly event ‘Dirty Smart DJ Adventures’ for a second season in Ibiza. To coincide with this they released their 4th range, titled ‘Versus’, collaborating on designs with some of the UK’s hottest artists including Funkagenda, Will Bailey, & Black Noise.

Oli Hopkinson a.k.a Mr Dirty Smart: “2011 has been a great year. Highlights include spotting deadmau5 wearing Dirty Smart at T-In-Park, being involved in the production of Aquasky’s music video for ‘Superbad’ & meeting Laidback Luke at Cream, Liverpool.”

Dirty Smart has certainly raised the benchmark for streetwear across the UK. What will 2012 bring?.. If it’s anything like 2011 its going be a fun ride. Bring it on!

SKRILLEX SCORES 5 GRAMMY NOMINATIONS...

Skrillex, Grammy nominations
Despite the chorus of disbelievers, there's no doubt 2011 has been good to Skrillex. Now the superstar has bagged himself 5 Grammy nominations including 'Best New Artist'.

Skrillex is up against Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj, The Band Perry and J. Cole – a mixed bunch if ever there was one. Usually dance music is neatly confined to the Best Dance Recording category, so this is a significant moment if you count these kinds of moments as significant.

Skrillex does also appear in the Best Dance Recordings nominees, alongside friend deadmau5. Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend is in there breaking up the boys’ club as well.

SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA LEAVE PACHA...

Swedish House Mafia Leave Pacha
The Swedish House Mafia have announced they are leaving Pacha in Ibiza next season.

The Swedes announced on their Facebook page, "After three years of hosting Mondays at Pacha Ibiza we feel its time to move on and explore more of what the beautiful isle has to offer!

"Its been an incredible time and we have had some amazing memories, thanks for making Pacha history with us. We’ll be seeing you next summer on a new and even more incredible adventure."

As one of the most lucrative Monday parties for the past three seasons, we're sure Pacha are going to miss their hugely popular night, Masquerade Motel.

The question is, who will fill the big Swedish shaped hole?..
