Claptone is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. But there is no denying the impact on the global groove made by this otherworldly artiste.

Claptone constantly circles the planet, only landing to deliver communion at special gatherings of electronic music fans. Fans who often appear wearing a golden mask themselves to pay homage to his message; cloak yourselves in anonymity and lose yourselves in the music. No doubt: Claptone has the world under his spell.

The clamour to recreate his nightly encounters with the crowds, his comprehensive club experiences and the joyous feelings of the first season of his own event has led to the creation of “The Masquerade mixed by Claptone”. This collection of edits, classics, exclusives, remixes and stand out tracks from his DJ sets is split into two mixes: day and night. Claptone aims to enchant and beguile the listener as well-known and new songs appear to magically intertwine; originals become remixes become edits become samples become music. Contained within the mixes is a special alchemy that is exclusive and won’t appear anywhere else – Claptone is spoiling us.

REVIEW: Berlin’s masked crusader returns! In an effort to resimulate his nightlife experiences with recent audiences as seen at his new event series The Masquerade, he’s been led to create these delightful mixes featuring a collection of edits, exclusives and remixes which come as two parts: day and night. In the Berlin based producer’s own words: “The night mix is one for your perfect club night. The day mix is the ice cubes in your cocktail”. With that in mind, highlights on the former came in the shape of some great remixes by the man himself, such as Ultra Nate vs Roland Clark with the rather bittersweet “The First Time Free”, Simion vs MD X-Spress’ “God Made Me Feel It” and Subb-An’s slinky hit from a few years back “This Place (Nic Fanciulli Remix)”. On the latter, chill or cruise to Canadian deep house godfather Nick Holder’s remix of Daniel Steinberg’s “No One Can Change Me” or Kapote’s “Fuck Music” given one funky and lo-slung makeover by Berlin-Hamburg connection Session Victim.
