Claptone releases “Under The Moon” featuring Nathan Nicholson

Claptone is a unique proposition in modern music. Painted as a mythical character shrouded in mystery, Claptone has become one the biggest names in electronic music whilst himself remaining in the shadows. He has however constantly sought to deepen his own distinctive world, creating a rich tapestry, which tells the Claptone story.

Today, “Under The Moon” is the latest single to be taken from Claptone’s forthcoming album Fantast. It’s an exquisitely executed piano-led deep house groover, the kind which the Claptone name has become synonymous with over recent years. It’s the song that’s been getting the big response in Claptone’s DJ sets late and its release has become hotly anticipated amongst his fans. The song gradually builds tension as Nathan Nicholson’s vocal weaves through until an almighty release into a driving bass line.

“Over the last two years it has been a great pleasure to work on this album as a counterpoint to the hectic world travelling as a DJ. To lose myself when making music, to dive into and create my very own realm beauty. I admit it’s a dreamy, a heartfelt, at times a naive and surely escapist album, but what to do if one – on the quest for his soul – develops a strong desire to go back to his roots, back to nature? Did I find myself on that journey? Rather not. But I found some beautiful moments in the green, out in the woods, out in the fields, under the moon and in the night, moments, which I want to share with you. And there is one thing I learned and now it can be told, I am and have always been a Fantast.” – Claptone

Fantast is set to release on Different Recordings, June 8th, but check out ”Under The Moon’ right now.
