Good Morning Mix: Claude VonStroke celebrates Dirtybird’s 15th birthday with new Essential Mix [Stream]
Having helmed Dirtybird Records for a memorable, and certainly amusing 15 years to date, Claude VonStroke’s electronic expertise is well established and his polish apparent. In a nutshell, that’s exactly what shines through on the Dirtybird factotum’s new BBC Radio 1 showing. No stranger to the underground spotlight, VonStroke recently stepped under BBC’s to pay homage to his decade-defining label on its 15th birthday, celebrating with a loaded new Essential Mix.
The 2020 BBC Radio 1 outing is not VonStroke’s first: having previously graced Pete Tong’s airwaves with an Essential Mix in 2013, VonStroke is one of the station’s seasoned veterans. It’s no surprise that VonStroke’s output is a tech-house fluent showing with shuffling beats and the wonky samples that, over the years, have become Dirtybird’s signature. Beckoning fans to the dance floor to celebrate 15 years of rump-shaking fun, Claude VonStroke’s new Essential Mix is a delectable encapsulation of his decade and a half at the helm of one of dance music’s most beloved imprints.
