About

Alan Letko is a man of many faces. As his solo production moniker, Claw, he’s released a slew of critically acclaimed releases on Shift Recordings, Play Me, and Suicide Dubs, among others, and has been headlining shows in cities across the US over the last 3 years. It’s as Claw he got his start in Houston, gaining notoriety on the DnB circuit locally before making the jump to a short lived career as an audio engineer, and finally stepping onto the national stage as a forthright dubstep producer.

Or as part of his current collaboration with Richie August, Hulk, he’s embraced the previously negatively connotated term ‘brostep’ and turned it into a positive to describe the big-room, heavy sound that the two are pushing with their label, Brotown Records. The duo’s been responsible for some of the biggest bootleg tunes of the last few years, including their smash remix of Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind, as well as many original productions and remixes on labels like Potty Mouth and Tuff Love Dubs.

Or formerly, as part of the Trillbass collective, he’s been responsible for pushing dubstep in new directions, incorporating heavy use of hip hop samples and instrumental riffs to almost single-handedly popularize what many are now calling ‘thugstep.’ Claw’s official remix, under the Trillbass moniker, of Wu-Tang’s Keep Hustlin’ recently debuted at #7 on the iTunes hip hop chart.

Whether as a solo artist or in collaboration, Letko’s race to change the face of stateside dubstep cannot be denied. With a slew of productions in the hopper, a NY art gallery to run, and several record label ventures in the works, it seems the man known as Claw has no intention of slowing down.
