Dirtybird head honcho Claude VonStroke will be releasing the label’s first ever live mix album on June 22nd. The upcoming album, Claude VonStroke Live From Detroit features his closing set at Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit on May 26th.
VonStroke spent four months curating his set of almost 150 tracks for the festival. One of the tracks featured is a fresh remix of his classic track, “Who’s Afraid of the Detroit” by Wyatt Marshall AKA Elevator Musik. It will also showcase an unreleased track by VonStroke called “Maharaja”.
Calling it his hometown, VonStroke grew up in Detroit from the age of 11 before leaving for San Francisco when he was 26. He revealed that it has always been his dream to headline Movement and this year, he had the privilege to close the event on its first day of festivities.
“I’ve played Movement more than 10 times, and every time it’s one of the most nerve-racking shows of the year,” VonStroke said in a press release. “I always want to bring the hottest possible set for Detroit, it’s where it all started, and my parents always come watch. My set is very much an old-school-style DJ set, all music no one’s heard before, special versions, secret edits, all the stuff I’ve been saving just for this performance,” he continued.
He also added: “It seems crazy to release a mix album in today’s world, but the amount of incredible original music I have collected from both known and unknown producers will make this something people can get really excited about.”
Claude VonStroke Live From Detroit will be released exclusively via Apple Music on June 15th with a full wide release coming June 22nd. Watch the teaser below.
