The enigmatic electronic-pop maestro Claptone has been all of the buzz lately. His iconic Masquerade event took place during Miami Music Week and featured a massive lineup with Claptone, LP Giobbi, James Hype, Ferrick Dawn, and the legend Fatboy Slim who all left the instagram story feeds saturated with their dazzling sets.
He just completed his highly anticipated B2B with Brazilian tech house star Vintage Culture that rocked Ultra Music Festival’s main stage. Through all of this excitement, he recently tapped Chicago/Detroit duo Gettoblaster along with German duo Andhim to each deliver what are exceptional remixes to his collaboration with Mayer Hawthorne, “Feel This Way“, off of his ‘Closer‘ album.
Andhim kicks things off with an insatiably groovy club-pop remix, bubbling with bright melodies and a rumbling bass line. They seamlessly infuse their own sound while still keeping the greatness of the original in tact.
Gettoblaster follows with an explosive remix that showcases their Chicago and Detroit underground roots, flipping the original what is a superb, jackin’ remix. Claptone also adds his own dub mix to cap off the EP that is yet another fantastic interpretation of the original.
“The first time I asked Andhim for a remix was around 2015 for a track on my first album ‘Charmer’ and I’ve been asking and pushing them ever since. I love their productions and their music. I’m very happy that they said yes to remix ‘Feel this Way’. On the other end of the spectrum I share the same love for the ruff grooves of Gettoblaster and their powerful bass infused style. What they delivered for a remix blew me away, it’s a staple in my DJ sets recently. Having both remixes on the release to me is a perfect combination and it shows where I can go in my own sets when I play these out.” – Claptone
