After 15 years of Dirtybird and six albums from Claude VonStroke, 2022 sees the return to his roots and the small, off-kilter, dark, dirty dance floors that shaped the Dirtybird founder and label head.
VonStroke will not be accompanied by any openers or closers, flashy LED screens, visuals, or cryo guns: simply Claude VonStroke playing the first and last record every night, as he did when he first started, DJ’ing from open to close. Across every tour date, the DJ booth will be placed directly on the dancefloor whenever possible.
This back-to-the-basics tour approach joins Dirtybird’s White Label Series as a part of a larger label initiative to return to the core of its eclectic sound, eschewing expectations, and reinvigorating VonStroke’s enthusiasm for the dancefloor.
This is where it all started for VonStroke, stuffing white label vinyl in his basement, and playing grungy venues for as long as he was able. He’s a grafter, whose passion for the music and love of the community has seen VonStroke build Dirtybird into one of dance music’s most successful and fun independent dance labels.
