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.
