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.
DIRTYBIRD Campout's East Coast weekender has confirmed dates and the first phase of its lineup for next year, which includes the bossman himself, Claude VonStroke, Chicago house legend Marshall Jefferson, Hessle Audio big gun Pearson Sound, low slung pair &Me and Adam Port, and Life & Death's DJ Tennis.
For those not already in the know, there’s quite a few incarnations of DJ Magazine propping up news stands around the globe.
Claude VonStroke will be back in Europe next month, with six dates confirmed across the continent.
First up he'll touch down in Glasgow at SWG3 alongside Scottish DJ royalty and SOMA heads Slam, followed by gigs in Antwerp and Austria, before heading to the UK for dates at Stealth in Nottingham and XOYO in London.
Earlier this year, the DirtyBird bossman (real name Barclay Crenshaw) pushed his musical boundaries with the release of an experimental hip-hop album under his own name.

MK has announced his new Beats 1 Radio Show launching today, 20th January at 11pm GMT, along with a North American tour slated to jump off in March.
The Detroit-bred producer will serve as host and curator of Area10 Radio, a bi-weekly show on Apple Music’s global radio station. Area10 Radio will feature classics from MK along with never before heard collabs and remixes, as well as his house music choices.
Claude VonStroke’s DIRTYBIRD has announced its summer BBQ tour, which will make stops in San Francisco, Seattle, Brooklyn, Miami and an as-yet-unannounced fifth location.
