Byrdie – Poetic Epidemic

Like many labels that had powerhouse visions by empowering strength in numbers Street Level Records set precedence in the late nineties and into the new millennium. For the northwest it was a first and like other successful labels such as No Limit Records, AWOL Records, Cash Money Records, the label was able to successfully project its sound unto the masses with more than one artist. Success comes in a varied scale but 2001 was a special year for the label after releasing only two previous albums both being FTS group projects the label wanted to tip the scales by releasing three projects. Known to many as Pretty Byrdie, Dirty Byrdie, or Enormous Gorgeous his alter egos mixed with his deadly lyrics made him a favorite from FTS projects. After being in several other groups prior to his arrival to the label Byrdie would become the first artist from FTS to release a solo project when the label dropped his debut album “Poetic Epidemic”. Byrdie would come into his own as an artist under the direction and production of D-Sane. The pairing of the two would be the cultivation of a classic album that spurred several hit songs and still remains highly sought after to this day. The album would go on to make several marks for the label and the northwest music scene in general. Additional production from the album was handled by Syko with appearances from FTS members J-Dub, Madd Dogg, B.D. as well as local favorites like Sarkastik, Skuntdunanna, Syko, Self Tightld, Wanz, and Wordsayer.
