EXPDIGITAL155_KYODAI_WEEKEND

Kyodai and Exploited go together like bread and butter. The relationship between the Berlin dup and Shir Khan’s local label stretches back four years now, and after a slew of club smashes like ‘Music Rises Up’, ‘Sound Of The Falls’, ‘Houston In The Blind’ and this year’s ‘The Clone’, they’re back with another certified jam in the form of ‘Weekend’.

The duo’s love of ‘90s house has always been key to their sound, and they have really brought it back to the centre of what they do recently. ‘Weekend’ bursts into life with thumping kicks and hip-shaking percussion as a filtered vocal snippet builds the tension. Deft organ stabs are slowly drawn in, unfolding into an almost arpeggiated rhythmic pattern that brings the groove atop the deep, rolling bassline. Cymbal rides and snare fills pick up the pace, with a sustained string note building the drama further. Diva shrieks punctuate the sections as the filtered vocal snippet gets drenched in delay.

All of a sudden we find ourselves in the depths of a breakdown consisting of nothing more than an irresistible organ solo and teases of the vocal, the keys worked to their fullest to create hypnotic, hooky melodies and pleasingly phat chords. The beat slams back in as the organ chords loop incessantly, and a second majestic breakdown adds bubbling synths into the mix. We’re talking mid-’90s New York garage/house vibes here, with big drops and effects giving the groove a big room feel.

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.
