The Birdhouse radio show launched in September of 2015 featured bespoke mixes from Dirtybird mainstays Christian Martin, Justin Martin, and Claude VonStroke himself. Since then, the Birdhouse has remained committed to its ethos of showcasing only the highest quality mixes from DJs across the electronic music spectrum weekly. Previous guests include legends like Marc Houle, Dj Deeon, and Dubfire to burgeoning modern acts like Mija, Walker & Royce, Matthias Tanzman, and many more.

On July 19th, The Birdhouse radio show will celebrate its 200th episode with an original mix from the legendary Chicago-born house purveyor and one half of the Get Real duo alongside Claude VonStroke, Green Velvet. In 1993, he created Relief Records under his Cajmere moniker and has been among the legends that have come out of his hometown of Chicago.

The mix will also mark a special moment, as Green Velvet will give the first spin of Get Real’s first release since 2016, Jolean, live during the mix. Jolean won’t release until August 23rd, so tune in to catch it! 

2019 will also see Claude return to Chicago for the second edition of his city-themed Birdhouse Festival. Games, prizes, classic carnival grub, and of course great music all combine for a perfect evening in one of America’s most beloved cities. 

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.
