Claude VonStroke Tosses Alias for New Barclay Crenshaw Album [LISTEN]

Barclay Crenshaw is stepping out of the shadows of his well-known Claude VonStroke and away from his famous tech-house style for a new flavor that shows off the producer's love of hip-hop.

Barclay Crenshaw's self-titled debut is a 10-track album that is a futuristic take on sexy hip-hop slow jams. Fusing Barclay's talent for minimal beats with slow-motion trap sequences, Barclay Crenshaw showcases his skills and versatility producing across genres. But no album can truly be considered hip-hop without spittin' a few bars, which is featured in strong appearances from The Underachievers, Lady Chann, and The Cool Kids. Sultry vocals from Aviella on "Hidden Harmonics" helps to boost the albums cross-over potential, while a collaboration with Mr. Carmack on "My Dog Knows The Truth" brings together fans of old-school hip-hop with forward thinking electronic music.
