Claude VonStroke is one of the leaders in the American dance world who has also fostered a global presence thanks to flawless live sets at clubs and festivals across the world.
His dirtybird label is responsible for turning out some of the top secret weapons in innumerable Djs sets, but when he steps up to release a single himself it is always something special. His newest single "Make A Cake" has been released as the b-side to his Barrump single and is a gritty, tech house heater. The song is full of just the right details and texture to capture that booty shaking dirtybird sound.
For the video we see the erotic, hilarious adventure of a blow up suit character going on a classic movie-style date with a hot girl. They play mini golf, go go-cart racing, hit the batting cages, and get it on in their parked car. The girl then proceeds to pop the inflatable character with her fingernail which causes him to almost pass out before the girl saves him with some roadskies to cap off the ridiculous video. How could you expect anything less from Claude at this point? Enjoy.
