Raised in Detroit and now based in Venice Beach, Barclay Crenshaw created the quirky alias “Claude VonStroke” in 2005 and went on to become one of the most well-respected label owners and DJs in dance music. His first release, ‘Deep Throat’ was a hit, putting his imprint on the decks of DJs around the globe. But the real breakthrough came with double-header ‘The Whistler/Who’s Afraid of Detroit?.’ The 12” cemented Claude’s reputation as a producer to be reckoned with, crossing borders, genres, and musical ears, and is now known as one of the classic dance releases of the decade.
Since then, VonStroke has released three original artist albums, a remix album, and several high profile mix compilations. Highlights include a collaboration with the legendary P-Funk bassist Bootsy Collins as well as a few #1 & #2 hits on Beatport. Most importantly, VonStroke has kept it original, fun and funky.
As the owner of the record labels, Dirtybird & Mothership, VonStroke also built an impeccable A&R roster signing acts like Justin Martin, Julio Bashmore, Catz ‘n Dogz, Riva Starr, Tim Green, Breach, Eats Everything, Maetrik, Italoboyz, Justin Jay, and Shiba San well before they broke out of their hometown scenes (he even named a few of these artists.) Today, his labels continue to surprise and innovate in the underground dance scene, releasing an enigmatic combination of house, funk, dirty-bass, and electronica. Staying true to Crenshaw’s Detroit heritage, Dirtybird and Mothership donate 10% of profits to a children’s music school in Detroit.
A lot of Claude’s success can be attributed to a good attitude. He does not scowl and look mean while he DJs. He does not pretend to know everything and truly loves his fans. He is grateful to be doing music for a living and knows that the reason people go to parties is to shake their asses and have fun.
Catch him play at numerous festivals and clubs worldwide, or, even better, at his legendary Dirtybird BBQ series of outdoor events. Click here to visit Claude VonStroke’s Facebook page
