Barclay Crenshaw, celebrated for his groundbreaking contributions to Dirtybird Records, is set to embark on a transformative journey with his 2024 headline tour, Open Channel. Departing from the familiar house sound associated with his Claude VonStroke persona, Crenshaw is venturing into the burgeoning realms of bass music. The announcement of tour dates at iconic venues such as Webster Hall along with the highly anticipated Texas Eclipse festival serves as a herald for a new musical era. The unveiling of this 13-stop tour is a precursor to the eagerly awaited release of his upcoming album, “Open Channel,” scheduled for a Spring launch via Easier Said.
Before kicking off his tour, Barclay Crenshaw recently dropped a thunderous collab with Of The Trees called “Blue Mile ft. Strategy”. This track, mixing experimental bass and trap with some original UK vocals from Strategy, made its debut at their Red Rocks show – a perfect showcase of Crenshaw’s diverse musical style.
“I dig and dig through countless genres and experiment so that you don’t have to. I want to play new music that makes you say, ‘Wow.’ Your algorithmic playlist is just a formula that echoes songs you like until you are completely pigeonholed. Let’s start a community of explorers that connects over great tunes and isn’t controlled by computers.” – Barclay Crenshaw
