With Claude VonStroke being pretty busy over the past few months, it’s no surprise that we haven’t heard much from his spacey bass music alter ego, Barclay Crenshaw. The last we heard from Barclay, he had just dropped very dope remix of Bon Iver. Yesterday he dropped off a brand new 30-minute mix, “Transmission 003,” which also happens to be an AMF Music Festival exclusive.

If you’ve heard any of Barclay Crenshaw’s mixes, you can expect more of the same of his otherworldly bass music, mixed in with an assortment of hip-hop. Included in this “transmission” is music from BROCKHAMPTON, Mad Zach, Tinyghost, and much more.

Barclay will be one of many dope artists who will be playing AMF Music Festival. He’ll be alongside RL Grime, M.I.A., Jamie xx, and plenty more. Check out more information regarding AMF Music Festival here, and listen to Barclay’s brand new mix below. Enjoy!

Barclay Crenshaw Unleashes Dreamy Remix Of Bon Iver’s “715 - CRΣΣKS”

Claude VonStroke took the stage at Coachella’s Gobi Tent this past weekend in the form of his experimental bass alter ego Barclay Crenshaw. Although Claude has performed at some of the biggest events in the world, this was his biggest appearance as Barclay Crenshaw so far. To celebrate, Barclay has decided to unleash one of his secret weapons that he’s been utilizing in his live sets, his remix of Bon Iver’s “715 - CRΣΣKS

Bon Iver’s original tune is a brief acapella that features Justin Vernon’s distinguished autotuned voice, a track that most would consider to be an interlude on their full length album 22, A Million. Barclay takes this all the empty space in “715 - CRΣΣKS” and fleshes it out to turn into a full, cohesive track.

It’s not often that remixes can blow original tracks out of the water, but that’s exactly what Barclay Crenshaw accomplished with this new release. In fact, this may even replace Bon Iver’s original tune in our music library completely. Keep up the good work, Barclay. Enjoy!

Barclay Crenshaw Drops Fiery New Hip-Hop Single With Twin Rappers Cam & China

Barclay Crenshaw The Baddest

If you’re looking for your daily dose of thick 808s, look no further. Claude VonStroke’s bassy, trip-hop alter ego, Barclay Crenshaw, is here to deliver with another fire collaboration titled "The Baddest". This time Barclay has joined forces with Cam & China, a pair of twins representing some of the most fearsome and visceral rap coming out of Inglewood, California. The twins flow relentlessly over Barclay’s fat, tribal beat. Cam & China’s synergy is so in tune that you can hardly tell when one passes it on to the other, all you hear are bars rapid firing into your eardrums.

After working with hip-hop artists like Cam & China, The Underachievers, and of course The Cool Kids, it’s clear Barclay knows what’s good in the rap game. If you were a fan of tracks like “U Are In My System”, then this new banger will rope you in immediately. 

Also, as a side note, did Barclay just get his kid to introduce a new beat tag? Right before the 808s come in, you can clearly hear a high voice saying: “This beat is by my dad”. It wouldn’t be the first time he’s involved his kids with his work. Last year at Electric Forest he brought out his oldest to groove on stage with him during one of his sets as Claude VonStroke. It was adorable. 

Anyway, do yourself a favor and check out Barclay and Cam & China’s newest track, “The Baddest”, below. Enjoy!
