Claptone prepares the latest single from his mesmerising 2021 album ‘Closer’. A collaboration with Like Mike and Australian indie-electronic trio Mansionair, and the result is as special as expected.
Enlisting two of the dance world’s finest names for remix duties, Martin Ikin delivers a punchy, tech-edged dancefloor workout mix while Chambray takes things to a classic house sound with anthemic chords and energetic 909 drums.
Martin Ikin kicks things off with his intricate, footwork-inducing roller. Undulating kicks and waft-worthy percussion keep the groove rolling while Mansionair’s vocals drift with ease across the top. Reaching the pinnacle moment on the drops with huge snare rolls and a massive, growling synth bassline that will dominate the subs of any club.
German DJ and producer André Rost, AKA Chambray brings warehouse drum grooves from his over-heating TR-909 drum machine, while rhythms of monumental synth chords delight the upper frequencies. Sampling and looping key moments of the vocal lead and re-working with his typical studio prowess!
