New Remixes of "Feel This Way" ft. Mayer Hawthorne by Andhim and Gettoblaster
By Daniel Brems
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.
