REVIEW: Fabric 46 - Claude VonStroke

San Francisco based, Detroit raised power house producer Barclay Crenshaw aka Claude VonStroke finally lands his spot on the famous London based Fabric Series. After his At The Controls complilation CVS released back in late 2007 on Resist Music, again he showcases his flawless track programming abilities with a 22 track bumper tech mix, he weaves his way through bleepy tech house whilst keeping an old school feel to the whole mix. Two of his tracks are featured including ''Aundy'', the lastest single of his Mothership label which helped launch the likes of Italoboyz, The Martin Brothers and Catz 'n' Dogz. Other artist included in the mix are Detroit Grand Pubahs, Donk Boys, Stimming and Peter Lauer just to name a few of my top tracks. His hip hop roots are present while he drops cheeky acapellas, DJ Deeon's ''Shake It'' actually gets you bouncing around the dance floor, if it doesn't, you shouldn't be reading this. To sum it up, it's a compilation with long shelf life, timeless house, slippery wet basslines, wobbly kick drums and clean percussion. It get's 4/5 Knights.
