Claude VonStroke Releases Mind-Bending Video for 'Maharaja'

From VonStroke's critically acclaimed live mix album 'Claude VonStroke: Live in Detroit'

Recorded during his headline set at Movement, Claude VonStroke’s “Live in Detroit” set a new standard for DJ Mixes and compilations. In addition to special edits of previous Dirtybird tracks, licenses from other labels, and 7 brand new tracks signed just for the mix, Claude made one specifically for this performance, “Maharaja”.

Inspired by the classic electro break sound of his Detroit heritage, the official video of Claude’s genre-bending “Maharaja” features mind-bending visuals and dancers evoking imagery of a cross between Salvador Dali, Tron and Beat Street.

About Claude VonStroke

In this day and age of music cross-polination, Claude VonStroke sits at the forefront of all that is good, proper and most importantly, fun.

VonStroke is just as relaxed in his home studio building beats as he is dropping massive underground records in a room filled by thousands. DJ-wise, his relentless touring of every major city, festival and basement after-party around the world has only enriched his unique perspective on music.


As the owner of the record label, DIRTYBIRD, Claude also built an impeccable A&R roster signing acts like Justin Martin, Julio Bashmore, Catz n Dogz, Riva Starr, Tim Green, Breach, Eats Everything, Shadow Child and Shiba San, well before they broke out of their hometown scenes. (And even naming a few of these artists.) Today, DIRTYBIRD continues to surprise and innovate in the underground dance scene, releasing an enigmatic combination of house, funk, dirty-bass and electronica.

Sonically, VonStroke has released three original artist albums, a remix album and several high profile mix and remix compilations. Highlights include working with and on records for Bootsy Collins, Rihanna, Disclosure and Green Velvet as well as a few number #1 & #2 hits on Beatport.

Most importantly, VonStroke has kept it original, fun and funky.

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. Catch him play at numerous festivals, clubs or even better at his legendary DIRTYBIRD BBQ series of outdoor events.
