German producer Claptone continues to showcase his innate musical talents with the release of his second album ‘FANTAST’, featuring a very generous 13-track collection of moody electro-dance tunes, with a huge cast of guest collaborators including Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke, JONES, Zola Blood, Austra, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Joan as Policewoman, just to name a few.
“Over the last two years it has been a great pleasure to work on this album as a counterpoint to the hectic world of travelling as a DJ. To lose myself when making music, to dive into and create my very own realm of 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
