Claude VonStroke To Release Beware Of The Bird
Wildly creative, the Detroit native otherwise known as Barclay Crenshaw moved out West to start the dirtybird label with fellow producer Justin Martin not too many years ago. What followed was a string of releases that were played by the likes of Richie Hawtin and Damian Lazarus, putting the label on the map as a new avant-house imprint to watch out for.
Crenshaw's new release, Beware of the Bird, will be considered another notch on the label's fast-growing belt of successes. A mixture of sexy tech-funk and electro, there is a refreshing amount of variety on the album that bodes well for Crenshaw's musical future.
