Claude VonStroke, real name Barclay, hails from Detroit – the birthplace of techno. Moving to San Francisco, Barclay started Dirtybird Records, a mainstay which explores house and techno, and the variants that stem from the pillared genres. Any ardent clubber would be familiar with “Who’s Afraid of Detroit?,” an anthem that catalyzed his career from producer to touring DJ. Earlier this year, Dirtybird dropped its 100th release, courtesy of a full-length from Barclay himself. Titled Urban Animal, the album showcased the producer’s eclectic style. Ranging from bass-heavy house to more obscure, broken beat rhythms, the ten tracker comments on the no-hold-barred aesthetics of the label. For our latest Music Essentials, we see both production tools and literature that help him hone his craft, while a whiteboard is essential for the creative process of brainstorming, and a milage card helps him get the best out of every trip. Enjoy the Music Essentials and captions above, and head to Claude VonStoke’s SoundCloud to stream his music.
