‘The Masquerade mixed by Claptone’ is the first official mix compilation from the mysterious masked figure, and showcases the heartstring-tugging, synapse-triggering DJ performances that have entranced countless clubbers worldwide.

Ahead of its release, three tracks created specifically for the mix are previewed on this album sampler, each demonstrating Claptone’s remix and production alchemy. ‘The First Time Free’ is an ode to timeless house music, marrying Ultra Naté’s iconic guitar riff and Roland Clark’s heartfelt vocal with a characteristic pulsing Claptone groove.

‘Planet Rock’, on the other hand, reveals Claptone’s affinity towards classic electro and his ability to transcend eras, with Afrika Bambaataa’s unmistakable stabs echoing all around his rework of the Powers That Be cover. Finally, ‘God Made Me Feel It’ is an explosive edit combining Simion’s recent ‘Can You Feel It’ with Mike Dunn’s seminal house/garage crossover from his MD X-Spress alias, ‘God Made Me Phunky’, and closing the sampler in emphatic style.
