DIRTY RECORDS TURNS 10!

10 YEARS OF DIRTY COMPILATION ALBUM AND BIRTHDAY EVENT FEATURING SCRIBE, P-MONEY, DAVID DALLAS, PNC, FRONTLINE AND MORE ON FRIDAY 4 MAY.

For the last decade, Dirty Records has been one of New Zealand’s formative local Hip-Hop labels. With numerous achievements since it’s formation by producer P-Money (Peter Wadams) and Callum August in 2001, Dirty artists have helped set the benchmark for homegrown Hip Hop - representing the top of their game locally and at an international level.

From their first album release in 2001, P-Money’s critically acclaimed album Big Things, Dirty Records went on to launch the career of Scribe, releasing his double platinum #1 single ‘Stand Up’, the Hip-Hop/Rock anthem which was a catalyst for local Hip-Hop exploding into the NZ pop mainstream in 2003. Successive single ‘Not Many – The Remix’ (featuring label mates David Dallas and P-Money), and 4 x platinum album ‘The Crusader’ further cemented Scribe and his contemporaries as the shining stars of New Zealand's much celebrated young Hip-Hop scene.

Since then, Dirty artists have produced countless hit singles and albums, won the NZ Music Award for Best Hip-Hop album an astonishing seven years out of the last 10, and garnered international acclaim and success.

“I'm incredibly proud of all the talented artists, producers and staff that have worked on Dirty Records throughout the past 10 years,” says Dirty Records co-founder P-Money. “We've created a lot of great music and shared some amazing moments together. Thanks to each and every one of you. I can't quite believe it’s been this long already!"

A collection of the best tracks from the first 10 years will be made available for purchase from May 4 from all good digital retailers, with the 10 Years Of Dirty party held the same night at The Studio.Dirty Record’s Callum August says, “This gives us a chance to celebrate with everyone who we’ve worked with over the last 10 years and the fans that made it all possible. See you at May 4 at the studio!”
