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.
Urban Animal embodies the singular sound that Claude VonStroke and his dirtybird crew have perfected over the last nine years. Touching on all spectrums of house, moving from booty bass to d’n’b, Urban Animal is rich and diverse, stoic and playful, tough and tender. VonStroke has pieced together a rugged arrangement of the most discordant, unlikely parts, into something brimming with beauty and human appeal. It’s a record wide in scope, yet one that could only have been birthed by VonStroke.
