It's been over a year since we've heard new original music from Claude VonStroke, but the head of Dirtybird Records has just given us a brand-new two track EP. While Claude has released an album and two mixtapes during that time under his side project (and real name) Barclay Crenshaw, this new EP returns to his tech house roots.
Dirtybird was recently named Label of the Decade by Mixmag and these collaborative tracks with two labelmates show they'll be one to watch in the decade to come. The first song, "Tiny Tambourine," features Will Clarke and starts out with a deep, pulsing bassline that doesn't let up for the duration of the track. The second, "Daylight Dark Room," features Sebastien V who is rumored to be the secret alias of someone else on the roster. While this track is lighter than the first, the slow build culminates in a dense, complex song that is hard to sit still to.
This release marks Dirtybird's 12th release this year, and they show no signs of slowing down this year ahead of their annual Dirtybird Campout festival. Enjoy!
