Paul Nicholas Fisher is a straight up Strayan. True blue, down to earth, no messing about. He loves his music, he loves to surf, he loves a laugh with his mates. What you see is what you get; a happy-go-lucky man who seems to emanate joie de vivre and has a tendency to cackle mischievously when he laughs. Beer, banter, beats and not so much as a whiff of bull. He’s as honest as they come...
You’ll have no doubt seen him, too. He’s got a strong online presence and is one of the few DJs who doesn’t do Instagram videos because he feels he ought to, or his manager is holding him at gunpoint and telling him it’s essential in today’s modern game. He does them because, to use his own catchphrase, he “fucking loves it”. In fact, he’s been in front of the camera a lot of his adult life. But in terms of his backstory, and how he went from a relative unknown to one of the hottest tickets in town in less than two years, there’s a chance you might have missed it.
He’s got a lot of gigs coming up this year. He had a lot last year, too. Since his debut single ‘Ya Kidding’ landed on Dirtybird in June 2017, his flippers have barely touched the floor. He achieved the holy grail of aspiring DJs and producers since the dawn of dance music; off the back of just one big club track he became a hot name in house music.

Claude VonStroke is releasing the first ever Dirtybird live album— a recording of his set from Movement in Detroit, appropriately titled 'Claude VonStroke: Live In Detroit'.
A native to the city and regular player at the event, the man in question closed out the festival's main Saturday night this year, an honour he evidently took very seriously. Scores of new work were signed and cleared in the months leading up to the occasion, winding up with almost 150 tunes available for use.
1. The Hyphy Hula Hoop championship with Will Clarke
"Over the years so many people have sent in hula hooping videos I can wait to break it down with them for the grand championship!"
DityBird Campout has well and truly cemented its reputation for silliness, serious tunes, and a stunning California location.
1. His high school radio show in Detroit
Claude VonStroke's appreciation of all kinds of music was evident from an early age and can be traced all the way back to his hip-hop radio show during high school years. It wasn't the most popular show on the station, so he cleverly decided to give away free pizza to get his fellow students to tune in and listen.
Claude VonStroke is sharing all 90 minutes from his set at Dirtybird Campout West. The video stream arrives as VonStroke and the Dirtybird collective promote the launch of their East Coast (United States) Campout event.
Performing in-front of Dirtybird-aficionados, VonStoke kept the performance rife with his eclectic bassline, booty-bass, and weirdo-electro stylings.
