The dancefloor vibe is taken off Carl Craig’s Detroit Love Vol. II.
Claude VonStroke just released his latest single, “My Love Check”. The track dropped just in time for Movement Festival in the producer’s hometown of Detroit, where he fulfilled the lifelong dream of headlining last year, and is featured in Detroit legend Carl Craig‘s Detroit Love Vol. II Compilation.
Released along with a black-and-white music video, all shot on location in Detroit, “My Love Check” showcases a minimal house approach that bridges the old with the new. Groovy drums create a dance floor-ready groove, while pads, synths continuously twist and trade places, resulting in a progressive vibe.
“My Love Check” from the new Carl Craig compilation is about my love for longtime hometown Detroit” revealed the Dirtybird label boss. “This video was shot by one of my best friends, Anthony Garth. We came up in the film business together in Detroit and Anthony shot my first music video in a laundromat. […] Anthony’s Black and White footage along with The Bens’ pixel sorting effect combine the classic with the contemporary, something Carl Craig has always been so good at achieving with his music for so many years.”
Claude VonStroke has been a household name in the electronic music scene for more than a decade. The house and techno producer formed his label Dirtybird Records in 2005, and a year after he released his debut album, Beware Of The Bird.

Colorado-based singer, songwriter, and producer Unlimited Gravity released the glitchy, bass-heavy single “Steeze Manifesto” in advance of his forthcoming DEMIGOD EP on MHSM Records.
Colorado-based DJ, producer, singer, and songwriter Unlimited Gravity (real name Ronald “Ronnie” Weberg) is a multi-talented musician who has been cultivating a strong and fanatically loyal underground following for nearly a decade. During that time, Weberg established himself as a leading pioneer of the West Coast glitch-hop movement, performed at festivals around the country, and co-founded the Colorado music collective Mile High Sound Movement, all while honing a sound that combines fearsome, crunchy bass with emotive and rapidly progressing melodies.
His most well-known track, the Red Bull Records competition-winning remix of AWOLNATION‘s hit single “Sail” (alongside bass music heavyweights Borgore and Feed Me) has racked up over 100 million streams online and has been licensed in dozens of commercials, films and video games. Although the remix was released in 2013, it still receives regular playtime on the radio and can be heard in coffee shops, department stores, and all manner of other venues around the world.
From his 2011 release of “2000ml” with EDM.com predecessor Subsynthesis to his late 2018 release of “Caution Tape,” Weberg has demonstrated a remarkable aptitude for forging a masterfully orchestrated hybrid between calculated precision and chaotic intensity.
Unlimited Gravity’s latest release, “Steeze Manifesto,” is the lead single from part 1 of his forthcoming two-part EP, Demigod. Highlighting his two seemingly diametrically opposed approaches to music composition and production, part one of Demigod continues to develop the aesthetic heard in many of his earlier works – crunchy crunk beats with a high-energy, classically arranged melodic structure that is constantly progressing from beginning to end.
The second installment of Demigod will further develop the vocal-driven style first observed in his previous single “Caution Tape.” Providing a strong contrast to his hard-hitting instrumental productions, this style shows Weberg flexing his classically trained musicality in order to explore a different side of what it means to be Unlimited Gravity.
Part man, part deity, Unlimited Gravity bares it all on Demigod, and “Steeze Manifesto” is our first glimpse into his newly evolved and heavily upgraded signature sound.

Fool’s Gold head honcho and world-champion DJ, A-Trak on this week’s One Mix.
EDM’s favorite turntablist, A-Trak, returns to Beats 1 this weekend for their weekly radio show, One Mix. Rap, trap, pop, house and funk, A-Trak blends whatever floats his boat. On his One Mix, you’re strapped to hear new tracks from A-Trak himself, Roger Sanchez, Silk City, Kurd Maverick, and more.
Tune in here, exclusively on Apple Music.
Air Date: Friday 8th February, 2019 – 21:00 LA / 00:00 NY / 05:00 UK
Growing up in Montreal, Canada, A-Trak (real name Alain Macklovitch) scratched vinyl for the first time when he was 13 years old. Toying with his father’s record player kicked off his love affair with turntablism. Soon after, he learned to scratch on more advanced DJ equipment.
At 15, Macklovitch became the youngest DJ ever to win a DJ-battling world championship at the 1997 DMC World Championships. Before he turned 18, he was the first to win five world championships. Not to mention, Macklovitch traveled the world, performing at DJ competitions, clubs and music festivals in countries like Australia, Japan, South Africa, and Norway.
Though he enjoyed early success in the world of pro DJing, it wasn’t until a chance encounter with famed rapper Kanye West that Macklovitch caught mainstream attention. In 2004, West stumbled upon Macklovitch performing in a London record store. Immediately impressed with his skills behind the decks, West drafted Macklovitch as DJ for The College Dropout tour, and later worked with him on his LPs Late Registration and Graduation in 2005 and 2007, respectively. Macklovitch even introduced West to Daft Punk’s music, seemingly influencing West’s growing affinity for experimental electronic sounds.
In 2007, Macklovitch launched his own label, Fool’s Gold, with a dance-infused Southern rap mixtape titled Dirty South Dance. Fool’s Gold grew as a cultural phenomenon, fuelled by Macklovitch’s own propensity for blurring the lines between rap and electronic music. The label is responsible for developing artists like Flosstradamus, Kid Cudi, Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott, Action Bronson, and Flatbush Zombies, giving them stages at the label’s uber-popular “Day Off” events. Headquartered in Brooklyn, beyond promoting exciting music, Fool’s Gold functions also functions as a clothing line and art gallery.
Label aside, Macklovitch spurred his public image through hosting a successful travel website, writing articles for The Huffington Post; running campaigns with Nike, Adidas, Grey Goose, Converse and Cadillac; and gracing the covers of popular magazines like Billboard and Complex. Rolling Stone also included him in their roundup of the “50 Most Important People in EDM.” Not only that, but his hit remix of Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Heads Will Roll,” and disco-house collaboration with Armand Van Helden, “Barbra Streisand,” still get airplay.
From a talented teen with a love for scratching records to a streetwear culture icon, succesful label head, and globally renowned music producer, Macklovitch’s career in music has hit all the marks. Before his One Mix, we caught up with the Canadian artist to dive into his musical tastes. Macklovitch revealed his guilty pleasure record, dream collaborator, perfect sunset track, and more. Read on to see what he had to say.
