CLAPTONE DROPS MUCH ANTICIPATED FIRST SINGLE FOR 2021 -  'ZERO'

The time has finally come for Claptone to drop some long-awaited original music. The new single 'Zero' is a driving beacon of house music indicative that dancefloors commanded over by his golden mask's charm are set to return very soon.

'Zero’s' illuminating crescendo and playful yet commanding vocal is as evocative as it is affecting and underpins the beginning of one of Claptone’s most transparent musical moments without compromising what made his earlier work so special, channeling deep grooves and in “Zero’s” case dizzying euphoria into an unyielding dancefloor anthem.

'Zero' is a dancefloor statement for Claptone’s 2021; exploring deeper into an accomplished and mysterious musical character.

CLAPTONE WINS DJ MAG TOP 100 'HIGHEST HOUSE' AWARD 4TH TIME IN A ROW!

Claptone just got voted as 'Highest House Artist' in DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs Poll for the 4th time in a row. He also went up 12 positions from last year's rank and is now on number 41 of the overall top 100!

"Looking back at the confusing past months we all had, makes me realise, that what I am holding here in my hands means even more to me this year. We all haven’t been able to spend a lot of time together lately, and trust me, playing music for you guys is by far the thing I miss the most at the moment.

Being voted as the highest ranking house artist for the 4th time in a row makes me feel very emotional, and tells me that we’re going to have the time of our lives once we’re all allowed to properly unite again on the dance floor.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, your love and support means the world to me. Also a big thank you to my amazing team, I wouldn’t be where I am today without you." - Claptone
