Claptone is a veritable dance music enigma. The mysterious German producer is currently gearing up for a brand new mix album titled The Masquerade which is set to drop on Defected Records on October 28. The album finds Claptone curating a rare, 30+ collection of tracks, split into two mixes: night and day.
“The night mix is one for your perfect club night at home or in the car, for having friends over or making new friends, for getting intoxicated without necessarily getting intoxicated. The day mix is the ice cubes in your cocktail, a cool shower for hot hours on the beach, your cushion for a nice siesta, your key to a sexy flirt or just that sexy flirt itself.”
In celebration of the new mix, Dancing Astronaut is teaming up with Claptone and Defected Records for a sizable Halloween giveaway. The contest includes 2 CD copies of The Masquerade mixed by Claptone and 4 VIP tickets to Claptone’s Halloween Masquerade Show in NYC on Friday, October 28. One lucky winner will receive the full prize package, in addition to merch bundles from both Claptone and Defected.
