Claude Von Stroke
Every now and then an artist appears on the scene who’s not afraid to stick their neck out and do something a bit different - Claude Von Stroke certainly fits into this category. If anyone had said that one of the biggest tracks of 2006 would have whistling on, you would have thought they were mad – but Claude Von Stroke’s ‘The Whistler’ was a quirky electro-techno anthem that caught the imagination of DJ’s from across the genres – from minimal techno to Chigaco house. Similarly ‘Who’s Afraid of Detroit’ was an eerie understated piece of house that clattered around your brain for days after you’d heard it. Alongside his production commitments, he runs San Francisco’s tech-funk label Dirty Bird, which since 2003 has made its mark releasing brilliant but slightly odd techno tracks. Claude’s debut album ‘Beware of the Bird’ was released to critical acclaim, and showed he was here to stay. A second album is dues shortly, and a sub label focussing on deep techno called Mothership. Without doubt one of the most exciting new talents around.
