Cour T. might only be 16, but he’s already got a promising career ahead as DIRTYBIRD’s newest signee. His newest EP, Black Magic, contains one of Claude VonStroke’s favorite tracks of the year. Said tune, the two-tracker’s eponymous A-side,  stimulating, driving, and sensous, tapping into the carnal parts of the brain via hollow percussive elements stripped-down synths. “Downstairs” also packs the heat, taking on a longey, 4am feel with minimal production and a pulsing bassline.

“Every time I play Cour T.’s ‘Black Magic”’ the room changes. The entire vibe of the party goes from hands in the air to grinding, sexual energy, states VonStroke of his treasured new release. “his track has arcane properties on the dance floor. I wish I had 10 tracks with this vibe because nothing else sounds like it and when I play it, I always wish I could keep the vibe for longer.”

No wonder he kept it so long for himself before releasing to the masses.
