Claude VonStroke (Dirtybird/Mothership, US)
Claude VonStroke is the owner of San Francisco's dirtybird, mothership, & krush groov labels.
He created dirtybird records in 2005 and has been running everything from A&R to daily operations ever since. The name "Claude VonStroke" was a joke that caught on after he released a series of quirky tracks under the moniker in order to help kick start the dirtybird label. His very first record, â€œDeep Throat,â€ used a strange vocal sound effect as percussion to make a sleeper hit selling tens of thousands of copies. The follow-up track, "Who's Afraid of Detroit?" was the catalyst that changed his career from bedroom producer to touring DJ. He has been blessed with similar success stories ever since.
Tour wise, Claude has headlined almost every major club, festival and basement after-party in the world. The outdoor dirtybird parties in San Franciscoâ€™s scenic Golden Gate Park have also become a legendary summer destination point for both locals and international travelers.
