Claptone Double-Header: New Video and Tour Dates
Claptone’s mysterious persona, appearances and artist direction is something very few can get tired of. It’s almost refreshing to have a artists who’s next action is completely unknown.
With the long-awaited release of his collaboration with soulful vocalist Jaw, “Dear Life”, takes listeners on a transcending instrumental journey, fulfilled with relaxed, tuneful melodies, a simple construction and a soft beat. Being the first single from his eagerly anticipated debut album due to land later this year, Claptone’s first move implies a more pure, simplistic approach to musical production.
The video however requires a little more attention to the devil in the detail, with a relatively basic storyline of a girls experiences of lives ups and downs intertwined with deep symbolism and unexpected scenes. The optimising the refreshing charactertistic we have grown to love about Claptone. After an acclaimed BBC Radio 1 Essential Mic, Beatport chart-topping performances and a memorable Ultra Music Festival Set, 2015 has seen Claptone come-of-age and evolve into a significant performer on the scene.
The golden-masked, producer has also just announced, new, extended touring dates. A perfect chance to hear his infectious, spellbinding combination of raw funk, house groove and a electronic progression of atmospheres – part of a revival of modern house.
