Today, the world’s favorite label boss and bass dad, Claude VonStroke, announces phase one of his 2018 Summer/Fall World tour.

The tour will see Claude VonStroke touch down in iconic venues and festivals around in the continental US and EU including Tomorrowland (Belgium, July 22), Fabric (London, July 27th), Music On at Amnesia (Ibiza, Aug 3rd), Shambhala Festival (BC, Aug 10th), Opera (Atlanta, Oct 19), Club Space (Miami, Oct 20th), and many more.

The tour announcement comes in the wake of Claude VonStroke’s unparalleled project ‘Claude VonStroke: Live in Detroit”, a live compilation album recorded during his 2018 headlining set at Movement Detroit. VonStroke spent four months A+Ring the mix and pre-clearing nearly 150 tracks as well as signing several new artists to Dirtybird in the process. Watch a mini-doc on the album’s inception here.

I’ve played Movement more than 10 times, and every time it’s one of the most nerve-racking shows of the year. I always want to bring the hottest possible set for Detroit, it’s where it all started, and my parents always come watch. My set is very much an old-school style DJ set, all music no-one’s heard before, special versions, secret edits, all the stuff I’ve been saving just for this performance. It seems crazy to release a mix album in today’s world, but the amount of incredible original music I have collected from both known and unknown producers will make this something people can get really excited about.”

Claude VonStroke has also decided to have rising producer, Steve Darko, on as direct support for the upcoming World Tour.

Steve, who is one of the very first producers that has the ability to work gritty techno qualities into the Dirtybird aesthetic, is also the newest client of Motherbird management headed up by Claude VonStroke and Aundy Crenshaw, themselves.

Steve Darko started out fiddling the strings of guitar and bass at an early age and was quickly onto producing Hip-Hop beats throughout his teenage years. He now develops software for leading plug-in brand Izotope and creates music that straddles the line between idiosyncratic and club-friendly.

About Claude VonStroke

Claude VonStroke created a small underground record label called Dirtybird in 2005 and grew it into a full-fledged events, clothing and music brand over the last 15 years. During this time, he has also managed to release 4 artist albums and some of the most iconic house music tracks of the last two decades. 

Most people know Claude VonStroke for his smiling DJ persona touring every major city, festival, and basement after-party around the world. But Claude has also influenced the very fabric of the dance community, A&Ring an impeccable roster of acts like Justin Martin, Fisher, Shiba San, Catz n Dogz, Riva Starr, Tim Green, Breach, Eats Everything, Walker & Royce, Shadow Child, and countless others. (And even naming a few of these artists.) Today, his Dirtybird label continues to surprise and innovate in the underground dance scene, releasing an enigmatic combination of house, funk, dirty-bass, and electronica.

VonStroke has released four original artist albums, a remix album, and a live album recorded when he closed the famed Movement Festival in his original hometown of Detroit Michigan. Some other music highlights include working on records with Bootsy Collins, Rihanna, Disclosure and Kevin Saunderson as well as a few #1 & #2 hits on Beatport.  His partnership with Green Velvet as “GET REAL” has been one of the most rewarding friendships as Claude originally modeled his career off the quirky enigmatic style of his mentor and now good friend from Chicago. 

In 2015 VonStroke brought his first festival to light called Dirtybird Campout, a unique boutique festival based on the games and activities associated with American Summer camp mixed with the best underground house and bass music in the world.  He continues to innovate and curate new events with 2 additional multi-day festivals mirroring his Birdhouse radio show in Los Angeles and Chicago and his record BBQ event series that has been going since 2003!

VonStroke also loves art, most notably pop surrealist artwork that he has commissioned for the last 7 years on Dirtybird for all of the releases.  Each year he hires a new artist and has had the pleasure of working with renowned artists such as Jeremy Fish, Dulk, Graham Carter, Dan May, Charlie Immer, Raoul Deleo and Felicia Chiao. Walking through the Dirtybird HQ in Los Angeles is like walking through an art gallery in the Wynwood district of Miami. 

A lot of his success can be attributed to a good attitude. Claude does not scowl and look mean while he DJs. He does not pretend to know everything and he truly loves his fans. He is grateful to be curating, creating and performing music for a living and he knows that the reason people go to parties is to shake their booty and have fun.
