ELDERBROOK SHARES NEW CLAUDE VONSTROKE REMIX OF ‘CAPRICORN’

“Ridiculously talented.” – MTV UK, Brand New For 2018

“A prodigious talent.” – Clash

“Jon Hopkins-like textural experimentation with brutally simple and insistent melodic hooks.” – Sunday Times

Launched as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record, Elderbrook’s current track ‘Capricorn’ picked up airplay from Pete Tong, Diplo and MistaJam as it raced past 2.5 million streams at Spotify. Now the track veers into a different direction with a new remix courtesy of DIRTYBIRD head honcho Claude VonStroke, who has worked with everyone from Julio Bashmore to Rihanna via Eats Everything.

Claude VonStroke’s remix infuses one of Britain’s most vital rising talents with some downtown Detroit flair. Above all, it’s fun, as the man behind The Birdhouse mix series playfully blends energising beats, warped synth drops and vocals that are pitch-shifted to the extreme.

This represents Elderbrook’s third high profile remix in recent month. It follows Skream’s recent take on ‘Capricorn’ and Creations / Paradise / Hot Natured legend Jamie Jones’s remix of ‘Sleepwalking’ back in July.

After early releases on Black Butter Records and his own Mine Records label, Elderbrook joined forces with production duo CamelPhat to release “a cool little club record” called ‘Cola’. Catapulted into charts all over the world, it emerged as a surprise nomination for the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording, and also saw Elderbrook earn an Ivor Novello nomination for Best Contemporary Song.

Over the course of the last year, Elderbrook has been selling out headline shows all over the globe, as well as completing tours with artists as varied as Rüfüs Du Sol and Bonobo. His solo gigs have included sold-out shows at XOYO and Oval Space in London, as well as The Roxy in L.A. and Baby’s All Right in NYC.

Having recently completed his biggest American headline tour to date and a 1000 capacity London show at Heaven earlier this week, Elderbrook will now play the following dates:

 

October

27th – Germany, Hamburg, Hakkan

28th – Germany, Berlin, Maschinehaus

29th – Germany, Cologne, Veedel Club

In addition, Elderbrook is confirmed to support Jungle on select European dates in November.

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.
