Claptone Picks His 5 Top Defected Tracks

The masked House maestro Claptone makes his Defected debut with ‘The Masquerade’ – a mesmerising compilation featuring records from Purple Disco Machine, Riva Starr, Junior Sanchez and more, plus a selection of reworks of classic House records by Claptone himself including Traxsource number ones Ultra Naté vs Roland Clark – The First Time Free (Claptone Remix) and Simion vs MD X-Spress – God Made Me Feel It (Claptone Edit).

To celebrate the release, the man of mystery runs us through his favourite Defected releases through the years..

Ame – Rej

This track is epic. I like how the melody grows and gets more and more intense here, a wonderful fusion of house and techno.

Soulsearcher – Can’t Get Enough

This is a great example of real classic house music. With its amazingly positive vibes it still makes me happy when i listen to it again today after all the years.

Noir & Haze – Around (Solomun Remix)

One of the biggest tunes of the last decade. A track which works fantastic in the club but its also a pleasure to listen to it on the couch at home. And it’s so pop you can not get it out of your head anymore …

Oliver Dollar & Jimi Jules – Pushing On

Masssive groove, great house pianos and a pushing organic bassline are the foundation and this incredible female soul sample is the cherry on top.

Storm Queen – Look Right Through (MK Remix)

MKs magic moved Storm Queens great Original Tune into an even bigger Classic House Anthem, fantastic!

Listen to ‘The Masquerade’ sampler: HERE. The full Album will be available on Traxsource, Friday October 28th.
