No one knows much about the mysterious Claptone production crew. Their first EP “She Loves You” gained support from such heavy hitters as Claude Von Stroke, Eli Escobar, Tensnake, Eats Everything, Tim Sweeny, M.A.N.D.Y. and RubnTug. Now they are going from the tech house/deep house vibe to a more disco/re-edit take with this year’s “Cream” 12-inch, an organic bootleg record with an unmistakable ‘90s hip-hop sample.
The flipside takes James Brown’s “Blind Man Can See It” (another classic hip-hop sample), adds some punchy drums with a little Al Green flavor to make a standout re-edit that’s sure to have longevity. This is one of those 12” that belongs in your crate and is definitely worthy of owning on wax. Props to the Berlin based Exploited records for another fine release.
Released today January 30th on Beatport. February 13th on Itunes.
