Good Morning Mix: Barclay Crenshaw’s ‘Transmission 004’
Claude VonStroke is back to his low-end antics under his real name, Barclay Crenshaw. The DIRTYBIRD boss introduced this new (or old, should we say) ego to the world in early 2017, proving his prowess in the non-4/4 realm. He subsequently began his Transmission series of mixtapes, showing off the fruitful results of his deep dives into bass and hip-hop.
The fourth edition of Transmission has now arrived, and it’s arrived in the form of Crenshaw’s Dirtybird Campout West set. It goes down overwhelmingly smoothly, with an expansive tracklist that includes everything from new edits of tracks by artists like TLZMN and Kurei, to glitchy and powerful numbers by Seppa, Gucci Ba$$, and more. Of course, a number of Barclay Crenshaw originals are also weaved in for a full-bodied listen. The chilled atmosphere makes it a perfect morning listen.
