The ‘Nobody’ remix package opens with a Remix from disco favourite The Reflex, who ramps up the hands-in-the-air, feelgood energy in the best possible way. Berlin queen Cinthie then offers a fresh, pumpin’ house take on the track, before Space Ibiza resident Javi Bora delivers a steady, groove-laden cut ideal for the terrace. Last but not least you find the vinyl only extended mix, featuring Hamburg’s underground legend and score writer Erobique on keys to sprinkle some Piano, Clavinet and Moog magic on top.
First featured on Claptone’s acclaimed 2021 album Closer, the original of ‘Nobody’ has since amassed almost 500,000 Spotify streams. Barry Manilow is one of the US’ best selling pop artists of all time, with over 80 million singles and albums sold. Who doesn’t know ‘Copacabana’ or ‘Mandy’? He is also an avid fan of Claptone. In an interview he admitted to working out to Claptone’s music, which brought on a collaboration unearthing ‘Nobody’.
Claptone’s uplifting and vocal heavy style of house has gone on to rack up millions of plays on YouTube, with his Spotify currently enjoying 4.5 million monthly listeners. He has 3 artist albums out and more recently he has remixed tracks from superstars Elton John, Dua Lipa, Gorillaz, Gregory Porter, Mark Ronson, Ava Max, Pet Shop Boys, Michael Kiwanuka, New Order and more.
