12 midnight: Claude VonStroke (Dirtybird, USA)
Raised in Detroit and with his HQ at Venice Beach, in 2005 Barclay Crenshaw created the surprising alias of “Claude VonStroke”, going on to become one of the most respected label owners and dance music DJs. His first release, Deep Throat was a hit, leaving its mark on the turntables of DJs the world over. But his real leap ahead came with the 12” The Whistler/Who’s Afraid of Detroit?. It became one of the decade’s classic dance releases and consolidated Claude’s reputation as a producer.
Since then, VonStroke has released tree albums, one remix album and several compilations. Outstanding among these is a collaboration with P-Funk’s legendary bass player Bootsy Collins. As owner of the Dirtybird label, VonStroke has also compiled an impeccable list of artists including Justin Martin, Julio Bashmore, Catz n Dogz, Riva Starr, Tim Green, Breach, Eats Everything, and Justin Jay & Shiba San. Today the Dirtybird label continues to surprise and innovate on the underground dance scene with its enigmatic combination of house, funk, dirty-bass and electronic.
11 pm: Adrian (Fever, Bilbao)
Style: Groove & Rock
Adrian has been “preaching the message” for more than 15 years. At the beginning of time, at Comic’s, an underground den that introduced a generation of folk from Bilbao to blackness. Later, at the Bullitt Groove Club – his club – a venue with a musical mission. Now he DJs at Fever, the most important club with various atmospheres in Northern Spain.
He has shared decks with Keb Darge, Jazzman Gerald, Eddie Piller (acid jazz), Oli Stewart (Casbah 73), Jadd (Improvisto), Mark Taylor (Blue Note), Ian Wright, Andy Lewis and Wayne Kra.
Antonio Luque founded Sr. Chinarro in 1990, launching himself into an endeavor that would earn him the consideration of pioneer of independent music in Spain and turn him into one of the leading voices in the less accommodated music made here, in addition to being deemed one of the best lyricists of recent decades. To date he has spread his songbook over 15 LPs and 5 EPs, from his first work recorded in the USA with Kramer (Galaxie 500, Unrest, Low...) as a producer to Perspectiva caballera, his most recent album brought out on his own label. Along the way there has also been space for authentic masterpieces including El porqué de mis peinados, El fuego amigo and El mundo según.
He is currently working on the recording of his latest album at the Refugio Antiaéreo in Granada’s El Fargue district, an LP produced by J, leader of Los Planetas. Antonio Luque will present his new LP in acoustic mode at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, a work released by El Segell del Primavera.
