"I'm a loner. I’m happy alone,” says Claptone. When he speaks — always in earnest, mostly with a sombre tone — you’re never sure whether this mysterious German artist is talking about the character he’s created, or the man himself. Truth is, there is probably very little difference between the two.
DJ Mag’s Miami Pool Party went off as one of the wildest and wettest events at Miami Music Week yesterday at the Surfcomber on Collins Avenue in sunny South Beach.
Claptone has announced a new album, ‘FANTAST’, which will be the mysterious masked character's second long form outing, arriving on Different Recordings and [PIAS] 8th June.
The record features collaborations with a host of talent, including Kele Okereke, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Zola Blood, Austra, Nathan Nicholson, Blaenavon, Jones, and Matt Simons.
German house star Claptone will be headlining DJ Mag’s forthcoming party at Dubai’s highest rated club, WHITE, on Friday 19th January.
The masked German DJ and producer has been on quite a roll since releasing his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Charmer’ back in 2015.
Since then he’s been a regular face at events as diverse as Elrow in Ibiza to mega festival Tomorrowland in Belgium.
In just four short years, WHITE has gone from being an empty hotel roof to one of the Middle East’s best clubs, thanks to its forward-thinking booking policy.
Claptone’s up to something. As you may have spotted over the past week or so, a few news sources have been manically reporting that a mysterious “tomb” has been discovered in Loughcrew, Co.Meath, Ireland.
