IN THIS DAY AND AGE OF MUSIC CROSS-­‐POLLINATION,
CLAUDE VONSTROKE SITS AT THE FOREFRONT OF ALL
THAT IS GOOD, AUTHENTIC 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, Breach, Eats Everything, Shadow Child and Shiba San (to name a few), well before they broke
out of their hometown scenes.

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 on Beatport.

A lot of his success can be attributed to a good attitude.
Claude does not scowl and look mean while he DJ's. He doesn't 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
to shake their ass and have fun!
