This is the last release for this year.
Claptone opened 2012 with the Beatport Top10 track ‘Cream’ which has become our most succesful tune on Exploited.
Since then, Claptone has conquered hearts from clubbers and DJs worldwide.
Claptone belongs to a new generation of artists from the Exploited roaster who – together with Adana Twins and Doctor Dru – took the dance-world by storm, playing shows all over the world now.
Recently being featured on the Eskimonde Compilation (a decade of Eskimo Recordings) with a remix for Dirty Minds, the mysterious producer has a lot more in store for 2013 and we are happy that we can close the year with a release by Claptone: 2 new big tunes: 100% Dancefloor Satisfaction Guaranteed!

You will hear from us in 2013 again. So far we wish you all a Merry Xmas and a good new year. We are already in vacation mode now…Best.

Shir Khan’s Exploited label returns with another powerful release:
This time from Hamburg based DJ & Producer Doctor Dru whose debut on Exploited was the collaboration ‘Juicy Fruit’ with partners Adana Twins.
With ‘The Voice of Dru’ Doctor Dru created a modern take on a classic italo track which – within a few days – became a Beatport Top 10 Hit and was sitting comfortably on Deephouse No.1 for weeks.
The Track got love from Solomun, to Pete Tong, Soul Clap, Tim Sweeney and many more.
It’s been the break-through joint for Dru.
Since then he is touring the world and gained much love for his adrenalizing sets.
Whenever he drops the ‘The Voice of Dru’ people go crazy. We are happy to finally present Dru’s second solo-release on Exploited.
2 Clubtracks – one for the heads and one for the ladies.

Cover_Lorenz Rhode

Kitsune recently stated:
‘The Daft generation is everywhere around us and shows no sign of drying out. In Düsseldorf, Lorenz Rhode‘s doing his bit and occasionally strikes gold.’
Lorenz Rhode has disco balls for testicles and crushed velvet for chest hair, an inhumanly funky being with an inhumanly funky catalog of music.
For Kitsuné Maison 14 Lorenz Rhode teamed up with Jamie Lidell on ‘Any Kind Of Pressure’. Here is a little video of them performing the song which is part funk jam, part disco freak out, like a meeting of Stevie Wonder and a New Jack Swing house band at a tropical disco campfire bonanza.

It’s been nearly 2 years since his last release on Exploited. Meanwhile Lorenz remixed Moullinex for Gomma, Yelle for Kitsune, Strip Steve for Boys Noize, Cassian for Bang Gang and a few others and played shows all over Europe. His comeback ‘Superficial Robots’ on Exploited is all laser drums, bubbling bass arpeggios, 808 snares and Herbie-ish chord riffs featuring the voice of Coco Solid from New Zealand of dance-outfit Parallel Dance Ensemble who released an album on Permanent Vacation last year.
On the remixtip we have producer of the moment: Jimmy Edgar from Detroit – whose tracks on Hotflush, K7! and Warp have become essential for us. Jimmy comes up with a totally new interpretation for the clubs – keeping the robot groove alive like Berghain techno:)

The Jimmy Edgar Remix is already supported by A-Trak, Erol Alkan, Huxley, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Steve Aoki, Amine Edge, Headman, Black Van, Adana Twins, Round Table Knights, Strip Steve, Kiki, Dyed Soundorom, Cosmo Vitelli, The Mekanism, Boris Dlugosch, DJ Hell, Tomas Barfod, Punks Jump Up, Homework, Sinden, Trickski, Hot Since 82, Dj Feadz, Djuma Soundsystem, Brett Johnson, Wildkats, Jona, Till Von Sein, Adriatique, Etienne Tron, Mercury, Chopstick, Tim Paris, Bang Gang Deejays, Timo Garcia, Michael Reinboth, Jaymo, Zombie Disco Squad, Crowdpleaser, Daniel Dexter, Alex Barck, Justin Miller, Waifs&Strays, Ruede Hagelstein…

OUT NOW: JAMES CURD – Think You Know

November 15, 2012 / Posted by (29)

James Curd

Pretty excited to have James Curd on Exploited.
James Curd began his DJing career in Chicago when he was only fifteen years old. Being underage, Curd was snuck into events to play at raves and clubs he was not legally allowed in. He played along side some of electronic’s most respected acts and DJs.
As ‘Greenskeepers’ Curd released an array of music on Derric Carter’s Classic Records. He made his mark on the dance music world by infusing swing music and Chicago house to invent the term G-Swing, being short for Greenskeepers Swing. Around this time he also started a record label by the name ‘Greenskeepers Music’.
Curd released four full-length albums under Greenskeepers.
Under his solo name James Curd released on DFA, Permanent Vacation, Eskimo and Bang Gang to name a few. He has remixed Hercules & Love Affair, Juan Maclean, Groove Armada, Poolside, Flight Facilities and DJ CAM.
For his debut on Exploited, James hooked up with synth wizard/producer Luke Godson from Adelaide, Australia. Godson is one half of disco futurists “The Swiss” and also the man behind the cheeky tunes of “Luke Million”. Together they are Luke & Jimmy.
On ‘Think You Know’ James features Annabel Weston from Australian band ‘Archie’.
We hope you enjoy the tracks as much as we do. A little bit more indie this time…
