DIRTYBIRD Records Founder and Pioneer and DJ Times’ America’s Best DJ, Claude VonStroke, joins the Night Owl Radio family for a special 30-minute segment, packed with a slew of new and old fan-favorite hits. VonStroke opens with a Tiger Stripes remix of the classic cut, “This Is How We Do It,” by Montell Jordan, then leads listeners into a steady groove of beats and bounce with tracks like “Talk,” by Frederique, and the Latmun Remix of “Higher Ground,” by Gene Farris. His highly anticipated Barclay Crenshaw project – an experimental electronic and hip-hop venture – will debut an album and a US tour in 2017. Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet collaborate as Get Real to headline Insomniac’s dedicated underground event, Factory 93, for its first ever New Year’s Eve party in the Downtown Los Angeles warehouse district.
On-the-rise Mad Decent prodigy, Grandtheft, stops by the studio to drop another dynamic guest mix for listeners with 15 hard-hitting tracks from the likes of Lido, Baauer, and Skrillex. Having established himself as an eclectic taste maker turning out his own originals, remixes, and video edits, Grandtheft will bring a highly anticipated performance to Insomniac’s two-night New Year’s Eve extravaganza, Countdown, on December 31 on the grand Infinity stage.
After an hour of top-notch deep house and big-room drops, Dim Mak Founder and chart-topping producer, Steve Aoki turns up the heat with his powerful 30-minute guest mix. Touring over 250 dates per year while collecting a Grammy nomination in Best Music Film for his documentary, I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead, Aoki’s nonstop energy percolates through Episode #070. With tracks like “Voodoo” by Garmiani and Walshy Fire and “Pickles” by Botnek, fans can expect Aoki to bring the party to Countdown with one of his last performances of the year on Friday, December 30 on the massive Resolution stage.
