Episode 54

Barclay Crenshaw aka Claude VonStroke is a producer, DJ and label boss for top House music label, Dirtybird Records. As I said to Claude when I first reached out to him, Dirtybird Records is so inherently psychedelic. From the music, to the art, to the self-expression, to the outright permission for play, Dirtybird pushes the envelope and refuses to be boxed in — in true psychedelic fashion.

During this episode, we discuss the following topics:

  • The journey of creating Dirtybird Records — one of the top House music labels.
  • Discussion around Rave Culture and how Claude balanced the party scene as a touring DJ. Plus how DJing differs for him now that he’s sober from everything.
  • Claude’s wild weekend in Ibiza. Hint: He ran through a forest and found Ricardo Villalobos DJing in a cave.
  • Staying true to yourself as an artist — even if it’s not the most popular decision.
  • Dirtybird Campout — when a music festival meets summer camp. Coming October 2022!
