Wow! What a great year for us! We wanted to thank all our supporters and artists. 2012 was the year of the newcomer. Many new artists popped up and rose to quick fame. We are happy that we are a part of this and we do our best to keep the quality alive in 2013.

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.
