Claude Vonstroke had everyones senses tingling at Marquee last Friday, March 6th. The venue has quite an invasive sound system; I could feel the bass thumping through my chest on the dance floor and the lights and lasers were giving my eyes quite a show from the breathtaking view up on top of Marquee’s balcony.
Vonstroke seemingly puts his unique spin on his sets- which creates an incredible vibe and you can’t help but to move your body. In the early 2000s, he met up with The Martin Brothers and in 2005 the Dirtybird label was born. Now Dirtybird has an elite roster of artists such as Shiba San, Justin Martin, and Eats Everything– to mention a few- and they are continually spitting out magnificent tracks.
Vonstroke brought the Detroit techno to NYC with new tracks like “The Boogie Woogie” produced by Will Clarke and HNNY’s “Trummor” with sexy, tribal drums. Dirtybird artists Justin Martin and Ardalan’s track “Function” blasted through the speakers featuring naughty lyrics sung by PartyPatty and it was a crowd favorite. “At the function I shake my ass, at the club I shake my ass…”
Vonstroke was laying down funky tech house tracks like Ardalan’s “Wake Up” and “Thump Bumper” produced by Sacha Robotti & Kevin Knapp both released on DirtyBird. The venue was packed with club enthusiasts, all dressed to impress and ready to dance.
“The Dig (Umek Remix),” produced by Ralph Falcon got the crowd grooving and Vonstroke’s remix of Pocket 808’s track “Warpaint” featuring Gina Mitchell had such a melodic flow and relaxed vibe to it. He also debuted his new track titled “Barrump”– watch out for this one!
