CLAPTONE AND MYLO ‘DROP THE PRESSURE’ AND SET THE TONE FOR A LONG HOT 2020 SUMMER

By Chronic Innovations Collaborator

CLAPTONE AND MYLO ‘DROP THE PRESSURE’ AND SET THE TONE FOR A LONG HOT 2020 SUMMER
Claptone has linked up with ​Mylo to ​‘Drop The Pressure’​ - setting the tone for a long hot 2020 summer. ​‘Drop The Pressure' follows ​Claptone​’s hit remix of Michael Kiwanuka​’s ​‘You Ain’t The Problem’ ​in November and his remix of ​Mark Ronson’s ‘Don’t Leave Me Lonely’ ​the month before.

“I’ve always had a weak spot for music that has a real physical impact - when you put it on, it urges you to move,” C​LAPTONE explains. “Dare I say that ‚Drop The Pressure’ is a perfect example of a house track that you simply can’t resist: too funky not to trigger a physical reaction.”

He continues: ​“I’m not only talking about the obvious workout or gym motivator - no, ‘Drop The Pressure’ is far more powerful than that. While in the library or at a funeral, I felt my blood swirling and my spine tingling - I must dance to this! The uncontrollable sensation! I know you know that feeling too.”

The release of ‘Drop The Pressure’ follows the announcement of Claptone’s return to Pacha Ibiza this summer with his ‘The Masquerade’ residency on the coveted Saturday night slot.

CLAPTONE AND THE MASQUERADE RETURN TO PACHA IBIZA THIS SUMMER

CLAPTONE PRESENTS: ‘THE MASQUERADE’
AT PACHA IBIZA
THE MAJESTIC WEEKLY PARTY MOVES TO SATURDAYS FOR ITS 2ND WHITE ISLE SEASON

Claptone is bringing The Masquerade, his spellbinding event concept, back to Pacha Ibiza for a second season this summer commencing on May 23rd, with the weekly run of parties switching to Saturday for 2020.

‘The Masquerade’ has quickly become a highlight on the Ibizan calendar, promising magic, mystery and intrigue, within a supercharged environment of wonder. It's a place where one can live out their deepest desires, an extraordinary atmosphere, full of masked faces, complemented by some of Pacha’s world famous and beautiful costumed dancers, held every Saturday throughout the summer.

It follows on from a massively well-received first season, which welcomed MK, Diplo, Purple Disco Machine, Duke Dumont, Kerri Chandler, Basement Jaxx and many more to the idyllic shores of the White Isle for a string of majestic parties.

Claptone enthuses: "It’s crazy to think last summer was just the beginning, it already felt that perfect to me. To be honest, I can’t fully fathom that after that epic 2019 season, I'll be back at Pacha for 2020, to present an even bigger, better and longer season of The Masquerade - on the weekend. He adds: “There will be exciting guests, propulsive house music and all these great performers that your heart desires! in our sanctuary, each Saturday for 21 weeks. This is only the beginning.”

Originating in 2016, Claptone took his unique ‘The Masquerade’ show to select cities and venues around the globe, from The Brooklyn Mirage in New York to Electric Brixton in London, from Estadio Geba in Buenos Aires to Burnley Park in Melbourne, from Club Space in Miami to his own arena at Belgium’s iconic Tomorrowland.

A unique figure in modern music, Claptone is like no other. Playing over 260 shows around the world each year, his idiosyncratic, spellbinding very own house sound has caught the attention of many. The second iteration of his Ibiza residency is certain to harbour many more.

RY X - BODY SUN (CLAPTONE REMIX)

By Chronic Innovations Collaborator

RY X - BODY SUN (CLAPTONE REMIX)

Today Australia-born, LA-based singer RY X has released a massive new remix of his track ‘Body Sun’ by the infamous golden mask adorned Berlin producer and enigma Claptone, The original version of the track is from RY X’s acclaimed second album Unfurl, released earlier this year via Infectious Music. Claptone’s reworking shows off his well-renowned, almost mystical skills by reinterpreting ‘Body Sun’ as a future club classic while staying true to its origins.

Speaking about the remix, Claptone says: “It's been a pleasure to work with Ry's s voice, as it’s so mysterious and beautiful in a very unique way. But not only that. The chorus of 'Body Sun' just took me under its spell from when I first listened to it and I felt the urge to get this in shape for all the festivals and clubs in this world, to deliver the message so to speak. When the chorus kicks in, it’s goosebumps, sunrise, arms wide open, all at the same time.”
