“I always had a passion for Latin music growing up in such a diverse city like Los Angeles. I was always driven by the Latino community and thankful for the Latino fans that I have. This one’s for them, and I had a blast making it with my boy Maahez and amazing vocalist Albania. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!” – Dirty Audio
“BOBO has got to be one of my favorite songs to play during my sets, the energy of this record makes you want to party like crazy!!” – Maahez
“While recording LASSIE in the Dominican Republic, I had the opportunity to live the Caribbean experience and party with all my Dominican local friends. While I was out there, we would hang out en el teteo, on the block, and at local clubs. All my Dominican friends would use the term “bobo” to describe how incredibly lit we were getting. It was one of the funnest times of my life and it is a tribute to my culture. I absolutely love the easiness with which people in the Dominican Republic enjoy their life, and this song reflects exactly that. So with that being said, LET’S GET FUCKING BOBO!” – Albania Sofia
Joining forces to fuse their respective production styles, Dirty Audio and Maahez continue captivating audiences from around the world with their infectious signature sounds. Topped with hard-hitting, dirty beats and deep, grimy basslines, ‘Bobo’ serves as a standout hit – meeting at the apex between tech-house and reggaetón. Leaving a lasting impression on the listener, Dirty Audio and Maahez’s latest endeavor further solidifies the pair as forces to be reckoned with in the sphere of electronic dance music.
ABOUT DIRTY AUDIO
Dirty Audio began his journey as an aspiring DJ and music producer at a very young age, but while many get lost in the pack or drop out of the race altogether, he has emerged as a premiere rising star in our scene. Born with an intrinsic love for all music with a catchy beat, Dirty Audio grew up in Los Angeles amid one of the world’s finest melting pots of music. His early influences included hip-hop, rap and rock stars like 2Pac, Dr. Dre, Eminem, and System of a Down before he eventually set his sights on electronic music, drawing inspiration from classic artists like Benny Benassi, Deadmau5 and Skrillex.
Dirty Audio’s own signature sound has emerged as a dynamic and sophisticated sound with the theme of heavy-hitting bass. After a string of successful productions from 2012 to 2015, Dirty Audio had established himself as promising talent with a knack for creating hard dance music. However, it wasn’t until 2016’s release of his original “Gettin’ That” that the international dance circuit truly welcomed Dirty Audio into their ranks. With its driving sub-bassline, grimy synths and clear hip-hop influence, “Gettin’ That” represented a foray into a new realm of electronic music that resonated with fans who were crossing over from other genre demographics. The track was a massive hit with both listeners and other DJs; it became one of the most played tracks of the year by DJs and was dropped by everyone from Jack U to the Chainsmokers in live sets.
In the short time climb to the top, Dirty Audio has been a force to be reckoned with. His approach to creating hybrid dance music with a guaranteed dirty beat has garnered him attention from some of the industry’s most respected labels -including Mad Decent, Ultra, Dim Mak, and Monstercat -and support from prominent artists like Skrillex and Marshmello. His explosive remix of Afrojack’s “Used to Have It All,” a remix of DJ Snake and YellowClaw’s “Ocho Cinco” and his originals such as “Gorilla Glue” and “Hit It” were extraordinarily well received by fans and tastemakers alike, only serving to bolster Dirty Audio’s resume.
More recently, his GRiZ “Wicked” remix has become a fan favorite, and his version of the Chainsmokers’ “Inside Out” has amassed 1.3 million streams on Soundcloud. With guest mixes on Diplo’s “Diplo & Friends” and The Chainsmokers’ “Nice Hair” radio shows, Dirty’s imprint is continuously growing. Dirty Audio has touched down all over the world, touring everywhere from the US to EU to Australia to Asia, to all corners of the globe. He has had massive looks at EDC Las Vegas, Orlando and China, and not to forget the ever so coveted, Lollapalooza Chicago. Looking to the future, Dirty’s only plan is to keep going up
Breaking into the electronic scene among the pioneers of the Moombahton era in 2015, MAAHEZ continues to innovate today’s industry making a global impact with charting Tech-House crossovers. Producers credits also include 6x platinum album ‘Gangalee’ by Farruko and Latin Grammy nominated Sech’s “1 Of 1”. A true vision leading a growing cultural movement alongside the new generation of trendsetter producers San Pacho, Matroda, RedTape, DLMT, Sage Armstrong & Hugel bringing the world a new wave of dance music.
