X Top 4 Beatport (peak position), Top 1 German Club Charts, Top 7 Resident Advisor.

Top 8 most charted artist at RA X

“Cream” has been snapped up for numerous DJ-mixes, Miami and Ibiza comps.

Berlin/">Berlin’s Exploited label has been hitting us with back to back 5-star EPs that usually end up topping the charts

a month later (Claptone’s “Cream” / “Good To You” and Adana Twins’ “Everyday” and “Strange” both reached the

top on Beatport and RA).

“Secretly everyone is drawn to mystery and nothing is more alluring than an anonymous producer.

Exploited’s Claptone are no exception. Yet after just two releases they are already riding high on the pinncacles of

success. At the time of writing, “Cream” is sitting happily in the Beatport Top 10, where it has been nesting contently

for the past two months. It’s upbeat, deep house party grooves have been filling the DJ boxes of thousands

worldwide." (Beatportal)

The mysterious Claptone first burst onto the scene 5 months ago with an EP titled “She Loves You”

featuring 4 tracks of soulful house perfection.

Although not much is yet known other than he wears a long, pointed-nose facemask to hide his identity, he’s off

to a great start with tracks as golden as these. Definitely an artist worth following. The next EP for Exploited

is already finished and will be released in June.

Tracks from Claptone have been supported by everyone from DJ Hell, to A Trak, DJ Sneak, Soul Clap, Solomun,

Azari&III, Hot Chip, Noir, Julio Bashmore, Tensnake, Eats Everything, Matthew Dear and Tim Sweeney.

Reminiscent of the super patient, minimal, and downright seductive bootlegs that Soul Clap was pushing out

a couple of years ago (see Extravaganza, Sex In the Kitchen, and Rock the Boat) the new release from the

mysterious act Claptone entitled “Cream” utilizes the same tension and release tantra-esque production

techniques with great success. Sampling one of the most recognizable piano intros from the 90’s hip hop cannon

(Wu Tang’s “C.R.E.A.M.” if you haven’t already figured out), Claptone twist this nostalgic loop into a deep house

dancefloor filler. Released on the steadily incredible Exploited Records imprint, this track has been popping up in

sets from the aforementioned Soul Clap to house maestro, DJ Sneak. Now the video promo for the release is just

downright weird…silent films, clowns, ballerinas…

DJ Hell:

“Cream is the first clubhit in 2012.”
