Claude VonStroke tries his hand at stand up comedy on episode four of ‘Stroke Show’ [Watch]Claude Vonstroke Djing Dirtybird Campout

Attendees of DIRTYBIRD collective’s iconic festival, the Dirtybird Campout, know stand up comedy shows to be an integral thread in the recreational fabric of the event. Each year, Dirtybird Campout comedy director, Blakeshine, coordinates live comedy sketches that guarantee attendees belly-aching laughs in between sets. A demonstrated expert in the comic realm, Blakeshine gives label head honcho, Claude VonStroke, a crash course in stand up comedy on episode four of VonStroke’s newly minted talk show, Stroke Show.

VonStroke’s first formal endeavor in stand up sees him experiment with parody in his characteristic convivial manner. “I’m only here because my  employees put me up to it!” VonStroke says at the beginning of his routine. VonStroke’s good-natured, warm personality creates an immediate stage presence that contributes to the Dirtybird boss’ successful comic debut.

The Dirtybird label boss has launched a brand new video series called “Stroke Show.” Based on its premiere, the series will follow the weekly endeavors of Claude VonStroke, whether it be in the office or on tour. However, the techno DJ is known for his wacky personality, a trait that coincides with the video’s framework. It also appears to be a play on late night talk shows, with VonStroke as the host (yet more Eric Andre style for those familiar).

For Episode 1, he interviews a special guest AKA his personal assistant “since we’ve never done a Stroke Show before and have no viewers”. They talk through his experiences on Holy Ship! 2019, which consisted of 5 a.m. elevator interviews with attendees that were asked to make weird noises, losing money on poker, live pirate skits that weren’t exactly rehearsed, dubstep headbangers, and more. VonStroke adds additional context in the description: “Thanks for tuning in to the first ever weekly episode of Stroke Show. As you can tell, I had a great time on Holy Ship. I also interviewed my assistant, Maddie and my dog Q-Tip. Every week I will interview a guest and show a part of my crazy life as a DJ, Dad, Art Enthusiast, Music Producer, Event Promoter, Clothing Designer, etc.”

An indelible pairing, like mustard and hot dogs or ketchup and french fries, Dirtybird beats and sweet, sticky barbecue is a classic summer combination. Come May 2019, Claude VonStroke will once again rally the Dirtybird flock and grease the grill for a five-date Dirtybird BBQ mini-run. The San Francisco-born collective will bring their blend of booty shakin’ bass and house groove to the Bay Area, Los Angeles, Austin, Denver, and Brooklyn to kick off the summer swelter.

The tasty tradition will also offer attendees standard barbecue fair and vegetarian options with the purchase of a BBQ Feast Ticket.

Good Morning Mix: Barclay Crenshaw’s ‘Transmission 004’

Good Morning Mix: Barclay Crenshaw’s ‘Transmission 004’Barclay Crenshaw Transmission 004

Claude VonStroke is back to his low-end antics under his real name, Barclay Crenshaw. The DIRTYBIRD boss introduced this new (or old, should we say) ego to the world in early 2017, proving his prowess in the non-4/4 realm. He subsequently began his Transmission series of mixtapes, showing off the fruitful results of his deep dives into bass and hip-hop.

The fourth edition of Transmission has now arrived, and it’s arrived in the form of Crenshaw’s Dirtybird Campout West set. It goes down overwhelmingly smoothly, with an expansive tracklist that includes everything from new edits of tracks by artists like TLZMN and Kurei, to glitchy and powerful numbers by Seppa, Gucci Ba$$, and more. Of course, a number of Barclay Crenshaw originals are also weaved in for a full-bodied listen. The chilled atmosphere makes it a perfect morning listen.

 

Reliving Holy Ship! – Dancing Astronaut’s favorite moments from weekend 12.0

This post was originally published on this site

Reliving Holy Ship! – Dancing Astronaut’s favorite moments from weekend 12.0Holyship19c 031

Holy Ship! 12.0 was truly one for the books. With an even mixture of new and old faces across DJs and attendees, the vibe felt particularly special this time around, with talent from Mikey Lion to The Black Madonna all gushing about the magic that transpired over the weekend. The programming was as on point as the open, jubilant crowd, with a myriad of hidden stages, activity areas, and well-planned DJ sets happening all across the ship’s decks to create an even, enduring flow for all four days. Ultimately, the vibrant energy output by all involved—from the #shipfam, to the crew—made for yet another unforgettable voyage to the Bahamas.

While picking top moments of the festival feels akin to being forced to pick a favorite child, we masochistically put ourselves to the task and selected five highlights of 12.0. Without further ado…

 


JAUZ, Slander, and more at Bite This for an epic B2B

JAUZ went all out for his set at Bite This stage, playing more-or-less a producer’s set with mostly his own productions. While he’d already gotten off to a great start, onlookers got to witnessed something magical. Slander joined the bass house don on stage, followed by Holy Goof and Skepsis for what wound up being one of the most epic B2Bs of the weekend. We’re pretty sure people’s necks and feet still hurt from the chaos.

Claude VonStroke played multiple times throughout Holy Ship! 12.0. Two moments were especially memorable, however. At the DIRTYBIRD private beach party, the label boss worked some serious wizardry behind the decks. This same atmosphere was present, and even more amplified, as the voyage came to a close and he took over the Theater stage with boisterous ease.  The energy in the crowd almost created a full-on second wind.

Ironically, NGHTMRE’s sailaway set was actually something out of a dream. Each tune he selected was an absolute knocker, be it his own original works, or numbers like Slander’s “Zombie,” which made the crowd completely lose it. Even more cerebral was that we got the chance to watch it from the 17th floor outside deck, which made the visuals completely surreal.


 JOYRYDE brings out the hidden gems

Those in attendance of JOYRYDE’s two Holy Ship! performances were lucky enough to catch a special preview of his upcoming album, Brave. The swiftly-rising producer pulled out a ton of IDs in each, treating his onlookers to a fresh, unheard of aural feast. Pairing with the tunes was both of his crowds’ energies. There was no stopping of the wild dancing that night, and snatching snippets of the night to look back on afterward.


Heroic substitution by Habstrakt

Sadness could be felt across the Shipfam when news arose of Audien missing the cruise due to sickness. That being said, the Holy Ship! crew had an excellent substitute up its sleeve: Habstrakt. The classically-trained Frenchman read his crowd with ease, throwing down some three of the weekend’s most noteworthy sets that, while wildly varied stylistically and through track selection, remained connected in their wildness. One might even say him coming on board was a blessing in disguise.

Claude VonStroke is heading into 2019 at full speed, announcing a new tour concept he’s calling Double Dip. Starting February 1, the DIRTYBIRD Records boss will head out on a three city trip that promises to deliver more than a standard mini tour. Each stop in Chicago, Detroit and San Francisco will include two back-to-back dates where club goers have a chance to get double the dose of his notoriously upbeat style.

VonStroke’s first stop in Chicago will also be a monumental one as he brings his show to the iconic venue The Mid as its last two shows before it closes for good. The good vibes from DIRTYBIRD house, techno, and bass sounds will see the venue out with a bang.

Tickets for the Double Dip tour will go on sale January 7 at 10 AM local time.

Dog Blood will return to the stage next year with the delivery of New Orleans mainstay music and art festival Buku‘s 2019 lineup.

The festival dropped off one of the most diverse lineups of 2019 so far, topped by Lana Del Ray who is amid the release of her highly anticipated Norman Fucking Rockwell LP, A$AP Rocky, GRiZ, and Excision — along with an ultra rare appearance from Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s acid-laden side project, signaling the pair are likely ready to deliver long awaited new music next year. Louis The Child, RL Grime, and Kevin Gates round out the headlining block, with Claude VonStroke, Playboi Carti, Ekali, The Black Madonna, and a b2b performance from SLANDER and NGHTMRE featured on the undercard.

The festival is famous for its impeccably curated blend of hip-hop, rock, and dance music, and in 2019 they couldn’t have hit the mark more perfectly, pairing the likes of J.I.D. Denzel Curry, and a DJ set with members of From First To Last with performances by 1788-L, Getter, TOKiMONSTA and more. Buku Music + Art Project takes place March 22 – 23, and tickets go on sale December 11.
