Following the Pet Shop Boys Remix to "Queen Of Ice", the mysterious and world renowned DJ/Producer Claptone has now enlisted Gettoblaster, hailed by Complex as the “finest in ghetto house”, and eclectic super-house duo Andhim, to each remix "Feel This Way", featuring the soul-pop icon, Mayer Hawthorne. In addition to the remixes, Claptone has provided his own Dub Mix. The remixes are available on all streaming platforms today via Different Recordings.
Gettoblaster offers a twisted slant on Claptone’s sophisticated sound, infusing the original with their Chicago and Detroit underground roots into what is a superb, jackin’ remix. Andhim delivers a club infused pop remix, with an infectious arrangement, bubbling with bright melodies and a rumbling bass line that’s sure to get any party started. Claptone’s dub mix provides an insatiable groove, ready to storm the dance floors and festival stages.
“The first time I asked Andhim for a remix was around 2015 for a track on my first album 'Charmer' and I’ve been asking and pushing them ever since. I love their productions and their music. I’m very happy that they said yes to remix ‘Feel this Way’. On the other end of the spectrum I share the same love for the ruff grooves of Gettoblaster and their powerful bass infused style. What they delivered for a remix blew me away, it's a staple in my DJ sets recently. Having both remixes on the release to me is a perfect combination and it shows where I can go in my own sets when I play these out.” - Claptone
“It’s time to dance again. This track takes me back to illegal warehouse parties in Detroit and an era of unbridled excess. Here’s to feeling good all the time.” - Mayer Hawthorne
"We are super happy we could finally do a remix for our friend Claptone. It was a lot of fun working with the original track and give it a little summery andhim twist." - Andhim
"We are so excited about this project. Piano’s, bass lines, infectious vocals! This one has been doing work on our dance floors around the world the last few months!" - Gettoblaster
“Feel This Way” is the eighth single from Claptone’s globally renowned third album 'Closer', co-produced by Stuart Price (Dua Lipa, The Killers, Madonna) that was released in November 2021. Along with support from shrewd talents, Claptone enlisted timeless vocalists from a myriad of eras such as Barry Manilow and Seal, fresh-faced acts like James Vincent McMorrow and Mansionair, as well as repeat collaborators Nathan Nicholson and Peter Bjorn and John (to name a few). Quoted as “enlarging Claptone’s legacy even more”, ‘Closer’ has enjoyed global success, showcasing Claptone’s innate ability to blend commercial and underground elements in perfect fashion.
