Claude VonStroke is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of his iconic city anthem "Who's Afraid of Detroit?" with the release of remixes from producers/DJs such as Octave One and Marc Houle. Now Billboard Dance is exclusively premiering a fresh remix of the song and the accompanying video from the Dirtybird founder himself.

VonStroke stays true to the heart of the original infectious "Detroit" hook, but makes it even more enticing with a louder and faster version of the melody, complemented with breaks and build ups for a harder drop.

Directed by Anthony Ernest Garth, the haunting video features dark and eerie visuals with scenes of a colorful crew driving through the desolate city. Although they bring out masks reminiscent of The Purge, the group is all about partying as they break into dance with a hyper chicken -- the real life dirty bird.

Dirtybird will host a pop-up shop for fans in Detroit for all of Memorial Day weekend, with meet-and-greets and raffles, and will continue into the night with an after party at Detroit's Masonic Temple with Justin Martin, J.Phlip, Ardalan and a surprise guest.
