Here ye! Here ye! Gather round villagers and hear the joyous news that German house act Claptone has joined Different. The mysterious enigma with the golden mask has a wealth of new music to share and we’ve got a record label to help him do it. You may know him from his early singles ‘No Eyes’ and ‘Ghosts’, the latter of which featured Clap Hands Say Yeah! Both became enormous smashes on the super-cool Berlin house label Exploited, earning the plaudits of the biggest DJs and setting Claptone off on a monstrous, non-stop tour across the globe.
It’s somewhat remarkable that this curious being has still found time in a hectic dimension-trotting schedule to deliver big remixes for the likes of Metronomy, The Magician, Klaxons and The Pet Shop Boys.
Now as Different’s flagship signing, we look forward to revealing more about Claptone. But some things we can only guess at. A swooped, long beak creates much intrigue into what he must look like. But what does that curious golden mask conceal? Hideous, deformed alien features? Some kind of half man, half lizard experiment? David Hasselhoff?
The journey to discovery starts here.
