Claude VonStroke delivers his Movement set turned album, ‘Live In Detroit’Claude Vonstroke Live From Detroit 1

Dirtybird don and Detroit native Claude VonStroke announced that he would release his headlining set as a live album after playing Movement Music Festival over Memorial Day weekend. Originally released on Apple Music, the set is now active on all streaming services and titled, Live In Detroit.

Jam-packed with VIP edits and deep cuts, VonStroke went all out, bringing the fans in his hometown some of the weekend’s most dynamic house and techno. From originals like “Grenade,” his industrial collaboration with EPROM and his previously unreleased, “Maharaja” to Wyatt Marshall’s techno remix of the classic “Who’s Afraid of Detroit,” Claude VonStroke has put together 85 minutes of the grooviest dance-floor tunes. With the album consisting of the DJs continuous mix along with 13 individual, unmixed tracks, the Dirtybird boss has blessed us all with this massive offering of house and techno bliss.

Claude VonStroke announces first ever Dirtybird live album

This post was originally published on this site

On the afternoon before his debut headlining performance at Detroit’s annual Movement Festival, Claude VonStroke took to Twitter to excitedly deem the opportunity a “dream come true,” as well as a “major bucket list set.”

The combination of VonStroke having made almost a dozen appearances at Movement before eclipsing a headliner seat, as well as growing up in Detroit himself, “where it all started,” he says, opened the door for an unprecedented offering: a live mix album–a first for both VonStroke and his distinguished brainchild, Dirtybird Records.

The live-set-turned-album, Claude VonStroke Live From Detroit, endured four months of meticulous curation before VonStroke hit the Movement stage with nearly 150 pre-cleared tracks loaded in his DJ cannon.

“My set is very much an old-school style DJ set, all music no-one’s heard before, special versions, secret edits, all the stuff I’ve been saving just for this performance,” VonStroke says.

VonStroke accrued multiple VIP edits from within the tightly woven Dirtybird family, an unreleased VonStroke track, “Maharaja,” as well as a brand new remix of his iconic and highly applicable track, “Who’s Afraid Of Detroit?” from Wyatt Marshall.

Formerly known as Elevator Musik, Marshall turns the timeless, tech-house track into a more overt techno display, leaving the echoing, water drop-like synth melody intact over his robust, driving bassline.

The album is to be released June 15 exclusively through Apple Music.

On June 1, REZZ sent the internet into a tailspin with the announcement of her sophomore album, Certain Kind of Magic. The strikingly trippy album art looks to ring true to her out-there style, and her follow-up to Mass Manipulation is sure to be, too.

Just days ago, at Detroit’s Movement Festival, REZZ’s heavy set was highlighted by a few IDs, like the one audible below. Could it be something from her forthcoming album? We’ll find out on Aug. 3.
