Just days before his big performance at Mysterland, Claptone has graced the world with a brand new song. "Dear Life" is the second glimpse into his debut album, set for release in Autumn 2015 and already creating a strong buzz. The song is called "Dear Life," and features the rustic and raw vocals of French singer Jaw hovering over a shimmering beat.
It's an undeniably honest track, one the exudes a certain presence that we don't often hear in dance as much anymore. Too many producers are focused on that perfect pop vocal that will rocket across festival audiences, but instead we get a touching and personal song that is ready set for dark nights in small clubs. Now a little bit more about the man behind the mask.
Hailing from Berlin, Claptone is known for more than his melodic lows and earth-beat highs. His style of deep house braids genres gracefully, taking you on a journey through sound with no rules. His sets are an artistic performance that evoke a spectrum of emotions; as the story unfolds you'll find notes of tragedy and bliss. Low-fi crescendos give way to fluid vocals before surprising listeners with nothing short of funk.
His talent is undeniable, rising to fame in 2012 with the track “Cream” and in 2013 "No Eyes” and “Wrong”. His recent EP The Music Got Me on Exploited Records has continued to chart on Beatport's Top 100. We're looking forward to his album release later this year.
