Second single off upcoming "Urban Animal" album

A new track by the illustrious VonStroke, Mr. Claude VonStroke that is. Although his upcoming album Urban Animal, his third studio LP, is notable for the new directions the Detroit-via-San Francisco-via-Los Angeles producer is exploring, “Dood” is quintessential VonStroke — meaning, expect bass, booty shanking rhythms and idiosyncratic beats. In other words, superb underground house.  If […]
