Barclay Crenshaw proves he belongs in the bass music scene with Of The Trees on “Blue Mile” featuring Strategy.
Barclay Crenshaw aka Claude VonStroke is well known as a don of house music, but fans are coming to realize he also has what it takes to make dirty bass tracks as well. Although he might be putting his Dirtybird output on hold, he is also opening up the door to a side of his creativity that deserves to see the light.
Recently, Barclay Crenshaw played direct support for Of The Trees at his monumental Red Rocks headline show. During his set, Barclay revealed his plans to focus on his birth-name project with the promise of new album and tour set to take place in 2024. Later in the night, Of The Trees played out “Blue Mile” featuring Strategy for the very first time to the sold-out Red rocks crowd. The venue went wild as the track Of The Trees created alongside Barclay took over the Rocks with force, proving the latter artist’s rightful place in the genre.
Low rumbling vibrations course through what was once an empty space as “Blue Mile” begins. A signal sound effect hits your ears, barreling you into the confident lyrics of Strategy. He spits Denver-specific facts in his opening flow as this song was created especially for its monumental grand reveal at Red Rocks. On top of that top-tier UK lyricism, Of The Trees and Barclay Crenshaw perfectly blend their unique sounds of nature and deep bass together to arguably make one of the best tracks an artist looking to reframe themselves could hope for.
