Claude VonStroke - Makeovers

Posted by Claude Vonstroke on Jun 02, 2011


Artist: Claude VonStroke
Label: dirtybird
Formats: Full Length CD, digital, 12″ ltd. singles
Cat-N°: DB054
Release date: July 27th, 2011



Claude VonStroke created dirtybird records in 2005 and continues to run A&R and daily operations. In between classic releases like “Who’s Afraid of Detroit” and “Vocal Chords” VonStroke managed to also produce a large catalog of remixes. A typical VonStroke remix does not fall into the category of “said track getting redone with a new drum beat and some dub effects on top.” No, the typical VonStroke remix tends to be a complete re-work from the ground up.

The “Makeovers” cd is a compilation of some of Claude’s best re-twists, some of which are so far removed they can almost be considered original works. This collection was put together with this theme in mind, the remix as an inspiring starting point for an entirely new piece of music. This is not just a grab bag of old remixes thrown together. All of the remixes have been carefully remastered from the original files at Air Studios, London by Matt Colton. Some have even been re-made and edited by Claude to sound better than the first go around. Three of the remixes are brand new only having been just released in May and June of this year. But no matter when or how they were made, from “Warpaint” to “Percolator,” we think you will agree this is a superb collection of productions from one of the most creative remixers in dance music.
