Mysteryland USA Artist Spotlight: Claptone [BBC Radio 1 Debut]
Evan Walters

The mysterious masked producer who has been crushing it for awhile now has finally made his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix debut! This mix is not what you would normally expect from Claptone but its super refreshing and always dope to see a producer display their range. We get everything from rock and funk classics to deep house favorites in this mix; this comes as no surprise to me because most of his tunes do have that funky feel to them. 2015 has been a good year for Claptone, between headlining major festivals and holding down the number one spot on the Beatport top 100 with his remix of “Liquid Spirit” by Gregory Porter he has been getting busy.

For those of you guys going to Mysteryland USA this Memorial Day, 6:20-7:20 on Saturday you can find us cooling at the mainstage with this guy. If you dont already have Claptone on your “must see” list then I suggest you clear up some space because you don’t want to miss this! Just to give you an idea of what the mix will sound like I’ve got the track list below but you’ll have to go here to actually listen to it. Word is that the release of his second studio album is set for some time this autumn so keep your head on a swivel for that. To all my fellow Nomads, I shall see you next weekend. To everyone else, stay awesome and enjoy this sweet mix!
