Claude VonStroke celebrates 15 Years of DIRTYBIRD and announces his fourth album ‘Freaks & Beaks’
Raised in Detroit but now based in LA, VonStroke has grown into one of the most globally recognisable electronic artists. DIRTYBIRD started as a free party, then turned basement record label. The brand has morphed into a truly thriving community whose familial, fun and welcoming vibe has won over hearts and minds across the world. And while DIRTYBIRD has grown and evolved, VonStroke’s core focus on music remains unwavering.
The first two tracks from the album, ‘Youngblood’ featuring West Coast DJ Wyatt Marshall and floor-filling ‘All My People In The House’, have been released as a double-single alongside the album announcement.
Freaks & Beaks illustrates the very best of both the label and VonStroke’s undeniable musical talents across its eleven tracks. Underpinned by frenetic bass and pumping kick drums, the album takes in everything from tech-house and minimal, to left-field techno and deep house – a triumphant celebration of that trademark DIRTYBIRD sound.
VonStroke also delivers fans part one of an intimate documentary series, shot by his sister Emily (an accomplished filmmaker), documenting the creation of ‘Freaks and Beaks‘, celebrating this historic milestone and taking a deeper dive into the day to day life of Claude VonStroke on the road.
