Mysterious, mythical, and muted melancholy. These simple words don’t do justice to what has enchanted onlookers for many years. The world soon caught on to the elusive yet enchanting musical powers of this otherworldly beast, better known as Claptone. The results: today his shamanistic sonic powers take him all around the world!

By now we all know that 2012 proved to be a year dominated by Claptone’s contagious track, “Cream”. It became an immediate hit, topping new world charts at Beatport and RA. In 2013 his gifted musical talent and exotic stage presence really took him everywhere – the mystical figure played 200 shows in 130 cities on 6 different continents. To top it off, his ground breaking tracks ‘No Eyes’ and ‘Wrong’ both topped Beatport charts, got played by everyone, were universal across Ibiza all summer and also picked up plenty of Radio 1 plays from Pete Tong and Annie Mac.

As for 2014, it has already been a whirlwind ride for this aerial form as he released ‘Ghost feat. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah’ and ‘United’, which made #1 in the Beatport Deep House Release Charts. Up to the present day, Claptone releases have been birthed on Germany’s influential Exploited label but who or whatever Claptone is, it is alive, with a life of its own, evolving and revolving in equal measure, exploring new sounds naturally and forever taking inspiration from long gone and occult worlds

This summer we are very pleased to announce that with his unique sound pairs of theatre and tragedy, feel good vibes with acute desolation, Claptone will be gracing us with his presence at HARD Summer 2014 in beautiful Los Angeles, California! This event will take place on August 2nd and 3rd at the Whittier Narrows Recreational Park. This event is SOLD OUT!
