In this day & age of music cross-pollination, Claude VonStroke sits at the forefront of all that is good, proper, and most importantly, fun.
Raised in Detroit , Barclay Crenshaw created the quirky alias "Claude VonStroke" in 2005 & went on to become one of the most well-respected label-owners & DJs in dance music. His labels, Dirtybird & Mothership, continue to surprise & innovate, releasing an enigmatic combo of house, funk, dirty-bass, & electronica. Staying true to Crenshaw’s heritage, his labels donate 10% of profits to a Detroit music school for kids. VonStroke also built an impeccable A&R roster signing acts like Justin Martin, Catz 'n Dogz, Breach, Eats Everything, Justin Jay, & Shiba San.
Much of Claude’s success results from a good attitude. He doesn't scowl or look mean while DJing. He doesn't pretend to know everything & truly loves his fans. He is grateful to be doing music for a living and knows that the reason people go to parties is to shake their ass and have fun.
