House playlist takeover | Claptone for The Masquerade

We hand control of the aux lead to Pacha's Saturday night host.

Masked spectre Claptone and his extraordinary party of mystery and imagination, The Masquerade, have made Saturday nights at Pacha their own.

Taking inspiration from the Venetian tradition, the residency is famed for its original visuals and full-on party atmosphere. Saturdays at Pacha really are a destination where attendees can live out their deepest desires, surrounded by provocative dancers and sumptuous music.

The latter is our focus now, as we invite Claptone himself for a playlist takeover.

Selecting a handful his favourite current tracks, including some of his own as well as guests of The Masquerade, the DJ takes over our House music playlist.


Claptone House playlist takeover

Rune | Calabria (Claptone Remix) | Defected Records

"Summer is officially here, as is my latest single, a hot and sunny take 2008 club classic Calabria. Just out and already high in the dance charts and on dancefloors. A perfect soundtrack for The Masquerade residency every Saturday in Pacha Ibiza. I'm very excited about this one."

Dom Dolla feat Clementine Douglas | Miracle Maker | Three Six Zero

"Dom Dolla has just been my guest at The Masquerade and played an amazing set. Some House vibes mixed with classic rave will certainly bring him closer to the lads. Bonus points for production and arrangement. Why not get rid of that moustache though?"

Claptone feat lau.ra | Beautiful (Monkey Safari Remix) | Different

"What a remix by German duo Monkey Safari who have also recently played for me at The Masquerade. The original is from my recent album Closer and a dreamy and deep pop song.

The remix makes this into a French House remix with Daft Punk influences, deconstructing the vocals and changing the vibe completely. Usually I don't like remixes that change the vibe of an original, but who can argue with the remixers if the outcome is this infectious?"

Lee Foss & SIDEPIECE | 1, 2 Step (Supersonic) | Insomniac Records

"A stompin' and heavy track by Lee Foss. Everything funky is for me, but this one has a special P-Funk headbanger charm to it while the R&B vocals take the edge off. A staple in my sets for some weeks. Thanks to Lee for playing The Masquerade earlier this season."

Crooked Colours | Feel It (Claptone Remix) | Atlantic Records

"I miss the Indie Rock touch in recent dance music, that's why I took this remix on. There was a time when Rock and Electro where super close and I loved that period, now you have only 2manydjs doing remixes for Rock acts. And only them.

I want this back as I love Indie Rock vocalists, well actually I love Indie Rock Music, New Wave, Krautrock and some classic Rock as well. Thinking about it: I just love music."
