Following the announcement of his first Ibiza residency, Claptone’s fifth and final remix package of ‘Fantast’ arrives this month, featuring Swiss producer Dario D’Attis, Truesoul regular Sidney Charles and Material label head Mihalis Safras. 2019 has seen the man behind ‘The Masquerade’ events continue his project worldwide, bringing the event series to Pacha Ibiza whilst inviting the likes of Tensnake, Dennis Ferrer and Shiba San.
Claptone also released a massive remix of Florence and the Machine’s ‘Hunger’ and has been involved with The Fred Hollows Foundation in aid of Cataracts Disease.
‘Fantast Remixes Pt.5’ sees three more artists interpreting the album. Opening the EP, long-time producer Dario D’Attis gives his take on Claptone’s ‘Abyss of Love’. A slow burning track, D’Attis delicately balances emotive chords with passionate vocals to create an ethereal journey. Next up, Sidney Charles ‘Hurricane Vielijans’ remixes ‘Wildside’. Here he layers jacking beats with an atmospheric backdrop all guided by a compelling bassline.
Mihalis Safras’ kicks, high hats and sirens combine in his remix of ‘Stay The Night’, closing the EP in a burst of energy.
The EP drops on Different Recordings today.
