The Masquerade mixed by Claptone


The Masquerade mixed by Claptone

The Masquerade idea Claptone has been throwing around has been quiet spectacular. Originally coming from the parties featuring the masked producer and a few of his friends like Mat.Joe, MK, Henry Saiz and more in places like Amnesia in Ibiza and Webster Hall in New York City just yesterday, an expanded mix compilation has come out in the absence that you miss one of the phenomenal events. Check the video for some FOMO. “The clamour to recreate his nightly encounters with the crowds, his comprehensive club experiences and the joyous feelings of the first season of his own event has led to the creation of The Masquerade mixed by Claptone

The mix is comprised of two mixes naturally. The day and night theme are fairly popular these days and allows artists the flexibility of choosing a multitude of different tracks from various times of day during which they perform. Out on Defected Records, Claptone had this to say about the curated mixes:

“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. Forget everything you think you know about DJ Mixes and listen closely when I create, combine, recreate and decompose. This is a joyride through house music and audible proof that this music has not lost its powers. On the contrary, my mix shows that the right sonic potion works better than any of these prescription drugs for when you need something to bring a smile back on your face and the sun back into your heart, believe me.”

I’m not going to bore you with descriptions of the productions. The tracklist is below. Just know Claptone will put you under his spell as he has done with the rest of the world with these mixes.
