A creative enigma in his own right, Claptone is the producer and DJ who has amassed a global following in his 7-year career. Although the extent of what we know about Claptone is that he is German, his identity acts not as a hindrance, but rather adds to his allure.

His original productions which are laden with warm synthesizers, unique vocal samples, and boast strong foundations in house and electronic music, have earned him sets at Tomorrowland, Elrow, and Hideout Festivals. Whether listening to his earlier releases with 2015 album ‘Charmer’, or his most recent works with ‘Fantast’ released in 2018, Claptone’s work remains consistently upbeat, intoxicating, and entirely refreshing.

With a large following wherever he travels, his huge Australian fanbase gets ready to welcome Claptone back over 10 national headline shows. Kicking off the 2019 Australian tour, Claptone will hit Byron Bay and Brisbane’s The Met nightclub, before hosting a string of performances in Wollongong, Canberra, Queenstown, Auckland, Geelong as well as his signature Masquerade shows in Sydney and Melbourne.

    • Golden Features Returns With News Single ‘Touch’ golden-features-touch-2022-oz-edm

      The wait is over! Acclaimed Australian electronic producer Golden Features today makes his highly anticipated return with his rousing new single “Touch” featuring Rromarin. Golden Features has turned out to be an apt name for the artist born Tom Stell, a nod to the gold mask he wears while performing. “Touch” marks the first taste of new music from Stell’s Golden Features, after a literal golden run since bursting onto the scene in 2014. Since his 2018 debut album SECT and the launch of 2020’s collaborative project BRONSON (with ODESZA), Stell felt creatively spent and needed time to recoup. Instead of opting for the traditional R&R approach, Stell emersed himself deep into clubbing mecca of the world, Berlin. There, he lost himself in the city’s renowned techno bunkers and hedonistic clubs, dancing with strangers, stripped of phones and returning to the apartment in the early hours to hunt for the tracks he’d heard the night before. Four nights a week spent raving only came to an end when COVID closed the clubs down. But Stell returned to Australia revitalised and most importantly, inspired. “Touch” encapsulates everything Stell took away from his invigorating stint in Berlin. A track that’s both moody and light, layered with pulsating rhythm, hypnotic beats and the duelling deep and wispy vocals of Rromarin. “Touch was born from that synth riff. I fought it for so long, feeling it was too happy and upbeat. After giving it some space I reharmonized everything under the riff and it instantly made me feel something. Claire (Rromarin) had actually recorded these vocals for another song on the record, but the lyrics just felt right for Touch” says Stell on the new single. “To me it encapsulates that feeling after the rave… At the kick-on laying with your head in somebody’s lap, smoking a cigarette while they play with your hair.” Now with two platinum and six gold ARIA certifications for his tracks, 275+ million global streams, an acclaimed and beloved debut album in 2018’s SECT (#1 ARIA Dance Albums Chart, #1 iTunes, Triple J’s Feature Album), selling out two shows in 4 hours at the Sydney opera House, headline slots at major festivals both at home and abroad as well as forming the BRONSON project and releasing their self-titled album with stadium-conquering US electronic duo ODESZA under his belt, Golden Features has cemented himself as Australian electronic music royalty, returning now as an artist at the top of their game. Stay tuned for more to come from Golden Features, in the meantime listen to the new single “Touch” below!

    • Dave Winnel releases new single ‘Real Life’ + upcoming tour dates dave-winnel-real-life-2022-oz-edm-feature

      Step Out of the Metaverse and Into ‘Real Life’ with Dave Winnel. Sydney´s own Dave Winnel is conquering the world with his unique take on the house genre. After a string of massive singles in 2021 including ‘CEO’ and ‘Jungle Juice’, Dave Winnel is back with another house heater with his new single ‘Real Life’. With a dark and dirty bassline to get you moving, ‘Real Life’ sees Dave level up with one of his tastiest tunes to date. “‘Real Life’ was born during the lockdowns as we were constantly asking ourselves every day, “Is this really happening?” and “Is this really real life?”, explains Dave. “The lyrics are quite serious and dark, so I made the beat to match that intensity. With the artwork I explored the idea that although all this crazy stuff is happening in the world, there’s also this boom in the NFT- driven metaverse world where an online presence is more important over anything else.” Even through endless lockdowns, 2021 was a big year for Dave Winnel. He was a finalist in the Unearthed DIY Supergroup competition and also made his triple j Like A Version debut, delivering a stellar rework of Toto’s ‘Africa’, alongside a mashup of ‘CEO’ and ‘Jungle Juice’ with the help of KLP. Dave was also handpicked to remix Darude’s ubiquitous classic ‘Sandstorm’ for a major Christmas TV campaign. Over his career Dave has collaborated with the legendary Armin Van Buuren on ´The Race´, and produced official remixes for Twenty One Pilots, David Guetta, Bastille, Anne-Marie, Clean Bandit, Hardwell, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Adam Lambert, and Galantis, proving himself to be one of Australia’s most prolific electronic acts, racking up over 65 million streams on Spotify alone. This Vegemite-loving producer is known for his infectious and fun personality and this shines through his music, blending future/tech house with organic quirky instruments. Be sure to catch Dave at one of his upcoming shows and step out of the metaverse and into ‘Real Life’.

    • Wongo Unleashes New Hit ‘The Preacher’ the-preacher-wongo-oz-edm

      Wongo Helps Us See The Light With ‘The Preacher’ Featuring The Legendary Chuck Roberts. DJ, producer, former professional breakdancer and full-time funny man Wongo is ready to show us the light with his new single ‘The Preacher’. Featuring the legendary ‘voice of house music’ Chuck Roberts delivering a sermon-like vocal, ‘The Preacher’ encourages everyone to harness the power of love over adversity, delivered in a heater of a house track, with a sample from jazz artist Bob James. “Bob James is probably my favourite composer of all time by a long shot,” explains Wongo. “His ‘Shamboozie’ record had a huge effect on me from my b-boy days, so being able to sample one of his hits is a big deal for me! On top of that, having the lord Chuck Roberts on vocals… I’m done haha. Proper nostalgia vibes!” With a monthly radio show on Insomniac Radio in the US, numerous ARIA Club Chart #1s, sold-out tours, support from Mixmag, Billboard, Complex, Don Diablo, Claptone and Zeds Dead, amongst many more, Wongo is a force to be reckoned with. His most recent single ‘Apple’ hit #1 on the ARIA Club Chart, reached the top 20 of both the Shazam and Spotify Viral chart in Australia, and hit the most played spot on triple j, becoming the biggest club record in the country. Added to this, in 2020 Wongo launched his Need2Freak parties alongside Little Fritter, selling 3,000 tickets and calling on his mate FISHER to do a surprise B2B set. Need2Freek also hosted a stage at Grass Is Greener festival in Cairns in late 2021. In a scene dominated by DJs and producers, it is hard to believe that the most definitive moment in the birth of house music came not from beats, chords or vocals, but a sermon. The House Music Gospel or The Preacher’s Anthem are just a few of the descriptions anyone with even a passing interest in the genre will no doubt have heard in the impassioned intonation of “In The Beginning There was Jack, and Jack had a groove”, the opening line of Chuck Roberts’ soul stirring speech, a performance that was first heard in Rhythm Controll’s seminal 1987 track ‘My House’. Later resampled by Larry Heard, AKA Mr Fingers for ‘Can You Feel It’, often cited as the first deep house record ever released. As well as sampled on well over 120 various recordings. Roberts’ new sermon in ‘The Preacher’ once again delivers a soul-stirring message, letting people know that even in the face of adversity “what you need to know and understand and what you need to be able to stand on is this… there is a way out.” Wongo’s ‘The Preacher’ is primed for all b-boys and girls to get back on the dancefloor and know “the thing inside of us that can conquer any obstacle that’s placed in our way… this my friend is love.” Wongo’s latest hit, ‘The Preacher’ featuring Chuck Roberts is out now, get your first listen below!
