Claude VonStroke it would appear is not someone who is happy to rest on his laurels admiring a job well done, which he could be forgiven for doing considering Dirtybird‘s current resurgence under his direction. Its this unshakeable determination to continually push electronic music forward that has made his label an enduring force within club culture since its inception in 2005.
Claude VonStroke’s latest venture is a collaboration with lead singer Jaw from the ‘Notorious dOP Crew’, who it would appear despite numerous fact finding internet searches are not that notorious (Feel free to enlighten our ignorance). That aside CVS has delivered another stone cold classic, marrying crisp beats, sustained pads and a church like organ with a fine vocal performance.
