EDM culture and dirtybird pioneer Claude VonStroke unleashes his ‘Urban Animal’ upon North America this September. His third artist album, released September 24, will be accompanied by an 20 date tour, kicking off October 4 on his home turf of San Francisco, and taking in a Halloween stop in Detroit. Throughout the tour VonStroke will be supported the fast rising dirtybird Player J.Phlip.
Those who have caught VonStroke over the summer; hosting his own stage at HARD, subverting the EDM complacency of Las Vegas during EDC week, or maybe at dirtybird’s Ibiza residency at Sankey’s, have heard powerful glimpses of ‘Urban Animal’. The forthcoming album tour is to be a gathering of like-minded escapists, a dancefloor menagerie brought together by its thirst to push through the platitudes of everyday existence.
After releasing the single ‘Can’t Wait’ last week, VonStroke today unveiled the first glimpse of “Urban Animal’s” second release ‘Dood’. ‘Dood’ is inherently dirtybird, and already proved its worth as the peak time choice for its creator. The heart-squeezing booty bass line smacks instantly, while the rumbling drawl of the vocal sample perfectly encapsulates VonStroke’s witty spirit.
