Denver Welcomes Barclay Crenshaw this Saturday, March 16 at Reelworks Denver.

Barclay Crenshaw, previously known by his alias Claude VonStroke, is making his way to Denver this week to showcase his fresh sound, as featured on his new album Open Channel. Barclay embarked on the journey of creating an album in just eighty days, and he will be presenting songs from it on his inaugural tour under his newest project alias: Barclay Crenshaw. Drawing inspiration from childhood experiences in the 80s, the album swiftly took shape, garnering incredible reactions and gracing main stages worldwide.

A Glimpse into “Open Channel”

The album offers a kaleidoscopic journey through sound, presenting a rich landscape of tones, tempos, styles, and vocalists. It represents a bold exploration of Dub, Funk, Lo-fi, and Experimental Bass, signaling a departure from Crenshaw’s previous work in house and techno.

“This is my passion, and I hope you can hear it in the music. I really wanted to start fresh, drawing from all the influences I grew up with, from James Brown to DJ Krust.
