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!

Claude VonStroke Releases Full Barclay Crenshaw Set From Dirtybird Campout West : Experimental Bass

Barclay Crenshaw dirtybird campout set

It looks like 2018 already has Claude VonStroke feeling extra generous. After releasing a handful of Dirtybird Campout West sets to his forever thirsty fanbase, the Dirtybird don is starting the year off with yet another gift: the full hour-long set of his bassy, trip-hop alter ego Barclay Crenshaw (which happens to be his real name). 

Barclay Crenshaw took command of the Bass Lodge stage late into a dry October night in Bradley, California to offer up some psychedelic bangers to a crowd looking to step away from the onslaught of house music for just a second. Few people outside the Dirtybird hive know that Claude can spin hip-hop and experimental bass music nearly as well as he can spin house. Barclay was dropping a wide variety of tunes ranging from Biz Markie to G Jones. 

At the time, Dirtybird signed duo Walker & Royce were playing the main Birdhouse stage, drawing most of the festival in their direction as they debuted their new album Self Help, which landed on our list of best electronic albums of 2017. It would be a difficult decision for those attendees who were hoping to catch both sets. Today, however, with the release of Barclay’s set, fans everywhere can pretend that they were at both places at once. 

Listen to Barclay Crenshaw’s full set from Dirtybird Campout West below, which he’s uploaded to SoundCloud. Enjoy!

Claude VonStroke Returns As Barclay Crenshaw With New Remix Album ‘Barclay Crenshaw: Revisited’ Ft. EPROM, Bleep Bloop & More

Barclay Crenshaw Revisited

Back in January, we were pretty surprised when house music heavyweight Claude VonStroke dropped a 10-Track hip-hop album under his real name, Barclay Crenshaw. Even more to our surprise, the LP was not only incredibly well done, but even included features from Mr. Carmack, The Underachievers, The Cool Kids and more. Now, as if to close out the year, Barclay has shared a remix album of his first ever hip-hop project - Barclay Crenshaw Revisited.  

“Be warned! Listening to this release could have long-term repercussions on your well being and your perception of reality.” - Barclay Crenshaw

It’s always inspiring to see innovative artists switch up their style and continue to release incredible content, regardless of genre. While Barclay’s self-titled LP and his collabs with Eprom undoubtedly helped redefined what we’d expect from Dirtybird, this latest eight-track offering continues to push the envelope even further. Featuring wonky, bass-heavy remixes from Eprom, Bleep Bloop and Salva, light hearted reworks from Deebs and Persian Empire and even a brand new collab with Mad Zach, Barclay continues to transcend the confines of genres in order to share genuinely incredible music. Check out Barclay Crenshaw Revisited below and enjoy!
