When Barclay Crenshaw, better known as Claude VonStroke, comes by your town, don't go to see him if you are not ready to lose all inhibitions and dance your ass off because this Detroit-born knows how to wins over the crowd with his dirty house music and hip-hop, funk, and drum 'n bass influenced beats.
VonStroke's two most famous singles includes the sleeper hit, 'Deep Throat' and the catalyst to his touring career, 'Who's Afraid of Detroit?' Since then he has released two albums and many remixes. In 2007, VonStroke started a new sub-label called mothership that gives a large portion of its proceeds to a music school for children in Detroit, Michigan.
His live show is recommended for those who like to have fun and are ready to get sweaty and nasty.
