Claptone‘s ‘The Drums (Din Daa Daa)‘ gets a trio of dancefloor reworks from Dennis Cruz, Latmun and Friend Within.
It was back in March that Claptone unveiled his latest single, the infectious and hypnotic groove ‘The Drums (Din Daa Daa) Ft. George Kranz’. The tune has gone on to become something of a dancefloor sensation across the globe since first emerging as the ubiquitous weapon-of-choice at this year’s Miami Music Week. Now Spanish Tech House titan Dennis Cruz, exploding UK talent Latmun and BBC R1 favourite Friend Within deliver three peak-time remixes to continue the story deep into the summer.
The original is the next summer anthem to come from the masked man, now an annual event that has seen Claptone release four consecutive holiday-time cuts that have soundtracked the Ibiza and festival season. That run started with ‘Cream’ back in 2012, the now legendary ‘No Eyes’, THAT remix of Gregory Porter and last summer’s runaway Golden Summer theme ‘In The City’.
The original started life as a Claptone club tool, a voodoo spell road-tested and refined in clubs all over the world on his never-ending tour. Claptone took inspiration from the post-punk melting pot of early 80’s NYC when he connected with the pioneering George Kranz who originally made the drums dance over 30 years ago. The result is a meeting of minds and rhythms, pure gold in the hands of headline DJs.
