CLAPTONE RANKS #32 IN DJ MAG TOP 100 THIS YEAR

By Lilly Rumler

CLAPTONE RANKS #32 IN DJ MAG TOP 100 THIS YEAR
It’s been a decade since German producer and DJ Claptone announced his arrival, via his debut release ‘No Eyes’ on Exploited, and his true identity still remains obscured behind his trademark mask. Now three albums deep, with 2015's ‘Charmer’, 2018’s ‘Fantast’ and 2021’s ‘Closer’, he’s built a global fanbase that keeps growing, drawn together by his Spotify- and club-friendly take on house music.

This year saw him team up with Alison Goldfrapp for ‘Digging Deeper’, a disco-infused anthem, put out ‘Big Easy’, a club roller sampling Lew Stone & the Monseigneur Band’s classic ‘My Woman’, and provide some giant remixes, such as his uplifting Afro-house take on Zakes Bantwini's ‘Osama’. Along the way he launched his own label Golden Recordings with the epic ‘Euphoria’, while also teaming up with New York legend Man Parrish for the ‘Boogie Down (Bronx)’ inspired ‘Flashdance’.

Claptone had the honour of opening Tomorrowland’s new main stage over the summer, while also hitting other big festivals such as We Are FSTVL and Exit. But the main focus was his own The Masquerade party at Pacha in Ibiza. Featuring a huge cast of the biggest stars, such as Fatboy Slim, Faithless, Moodymann and 2ManyDJs, alongside a raft of celebrated house DJs, it all constellated around his own enduring sound.

Cassimm - Love Desire [Golden Recordings]

Cassimm - Love Desire [Golden Recordings]

London-based, Italian-born DJ and producer CASSIMM unveils his latest single ‘Love Desire’, the latest club-ready anthem to be released on Claptone’s new label Golden Recordings, on October 13th.

‘Love Desire’ is yet another sure shot from the club-focused Golden Recordings, with CASSIMM’s famed production talents on full display. Crafted around a sample from disco legend Loleatta Holloway, this is an instant hit ready to take global dance floors by storm.

This is the first non Claptone single on the label and continues a hot streak of Golden Recordings releases since the label’s launch earlier this year, including ‘Flashdance’ - Claptone’s collaboration with New York legend Man Parrish - the piano driven ‘Euphoria’, which has gained over two million Spotify streams and ‘The Big Easy’ which dropped just a few weeks ago and is on its way to two million as well. The new label launched earlier this year is releasing music to “celebrate House Music and its everlasting golden era”, in the words of Claptone himself.
