Claude VonStroke – Works Well With Others [EP]

2016 was a banner year for Dirtybird’s founder, Claude VonStroke. He debuted his Get Real alias with Green Velvet in the winter. He then followed up with “The Rain Break” in the spring, which became another number one single. He celebrated the 10th anniversary of “Who’s Afraid of Detroit” to kick off the Summer. He finally finished in the fall by being crowned ‘America’s Best DJ’ by Pioneer at a ceremony he shared with all the fans at the Dirtybird Campout.

After a relentless touring schedule the first half of 2017, Claude hit the studio with a couple ace producers, Will Clarke & Sébastien V to collaborate on two giant singles for the “Works Well With Others” EP.

“Tiny Tambourine” is the product of a collaboration between Claude and Will Clarke. The title is a bit of a misnomer, as ‘tiny’ is the last word to describe such a heavy bassline, which starts to form immediately at the track’s outset. It continues to build over crisp and heavy beats, and outbursts of drama, before dropping back to the burly bassline – the result is monstrous.
Will Clarke has been on a Dirtybird hot streak, first having released 3 solo EPs 5 singles. Then he had an appearance on Justin Martin’s album, plus as a brand new collab with Shiba San on the BBQ compilation, and a full take over on the Birdhouse radio show.

On the flip side….. Claude teams up with one of Dirtybird’s freshest talents, Sébastien V, for “Daylight Dark Room”. A light, melodic tone contrasts with a dark and funky acid resonance to create a truly unique masterpiece. The mysterious Sébastien V was also featured on the Dirtybird BBQ compilation with his super-hot track “Funkulate”. There are even rumors floating around that he is actually someone from the core Dirtybird roster sporting a secret alias……
