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 & Bruno Furlan Share Bumping House Track “Book Is On The Table” From New Dirtybird Compilation

Claude VonStroke Book Is On The Table

With Dirtybird Campout East rapidly approaching, many of us fans were patiently awaiting the release of the imminent Campout Compilation that goes with it. Today, Dirtybird dropped that compilation, and it’s loaded with bangers that we’ve been hearing their DJs play out all year long. There’s plenty of familiar names that are featured on here like Justin Jay, Maximono, Dateless, Lucati, and Bot. The most anticipated track, however, would be the collaboration between Claude VonStroke and Bruno Furlan on “Book Is On The Table”.

This track has been on our radar for a while now, ever since Bruno Furlan dropped it during his banging Dirtybird Campout 2016 set. At the time, the track was listed as a solo Bruno Furlan tune, but it seems as though Dirtybird boss Claude VonStroke got his hands on it and added his flair to bring it to completion. If you know anything about Dirtybird, this track essentially embodies what they’re all about. Thick four-on-the-floor kicks, heavy bass, silly, nonsensical lyrics; elements that will have you dancing and giggling at the same time. 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!
