The Birdhouse with Claude Vonstroke


In this day and 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 and went on to become one of the most well-respected label-owner/DJ in dance music. His labels, Dirtybird & Mothership, continue to surprise and innovate, releasing an enigmatic combo of house, funk, dirty-bass, and 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.
