The San Francisco DJ/producer is next in line for the celebrated mix series.
Claude VonStroke will take the reins of the next edition of the Fabric mix series.
The Dirtybird label head is the 46th act to mix it up in the studio for the venerated night club and, according to the San Francisco-based DJ/producer, it's very much a studio mix. "Everything is really tailored; the tracks aren't really the tracks, it is all cut up, chopped and twisted." Over the course of the disc, we get more than 20 tracks with many of them blended together seamlessly enough that they don't even warrant a track index. The biggest surprise, though? For a guy known for such banging and messy sets, there are two Stimming tracks—the Diynamic artist best known for heartstring-pulling tech house.
VonStroke explains it thusly: "It's challenging to do a project that has to say everything in such a small time frame because I play a lot of genres….I wanted to create a greasy, dirty vibe but also get melancholy and funky—a little hard here, a little soft there. I picked the best music I could find and put it together in a creative way that fully represents my sound and personality."
