Claptone delivers possibly one of summer 2022’s most in-demand records for his single debut on Defected. A homage to one of the 2000’s most iconic club records, a big rubbery bassline and brassy saxophone hook give ‘Calabria’ its warm familiarity that aims to enthral dancefloors.
Under his trademark Venetian guise and fresh off the back of his third studio album ‘Closer’, and with his The Masquerade parties taking over Ibiza Pacha weekly all-summer-long, this Defected release aims to demonstrate an artist at the top of his game.
Claptone: ”Finally, summer’s here, and it’s a full on worldwide festival summer. A long sunny Ibiza season has just started and all that obviously needs a soundtrack. So, here’s the essential track of all my recent sets, my very own take on ‘Calabria’. Sounding like bottled sun, bottled fun, bottled smiles. Wait why bottled? Just open that bottle and unleash all that positivity…”
Claptone ‘Calabria’ is out 1 July on Defected.
