Just a couple months ago, Dirtybird fans everywhere made their pilgrimage to the west coast to participate in the third chapter of the label’s summer camp themed festival, Dirtybird Campout. Among the many activities the campers were excited to participate in, very few were as anticipated as Head Counselor Claude VonStroke’s set to close out the first night.
Claude is known for his tendency to throw down fiery, unreleased Dirtybird gems throughout his sets, and that’s exactly how he started off his set here. Some DJs may save those hidden weapons for the end, but Claude sends them out early, with nearly a half hour straight of unknown, tech-house bangers to begin this epic set. Around 20 minutes in you can hear the next huge, wonky Dirtybird release, “Pay My Bills” by their newest member, Vangelis Kostoxenakis.
You can tell Claude was stoked to share all of this new music with his diehard fans. For nearly the entire set the boss-man is jumping up and down, dancing to his tunes along with everybody else. From the crowd it looked like he was DJing on a trampoline. This was definitely one of the best sets of the weekend, so if you missed out on the festivities you can now listen to the full hour and a half set right here. Enjoy!
