Claptone - Sydney
Sunday 28th December, FACT1ON is back for one last party to close off 2019!
Excited to be hosting the international heavyweight, Claptone at Home The Venue Sydney!
In a now long forgotten world, many generations ago, a bird like shape emerged from
wooded darkness, floating and fluttering, drifting and dreaming. Backlit by a bright glow of
iridescent light, the undecipherable form wore a dazzling golden mask. Its long beak
swooped down like an inverted horn and since then, people have referred to the mythical
being simply as Claptone.
Years spending wandering medieval landscapes have informed Claptone’s view of the
world, experiencing both magical mystery and muted melancholy he enchanted onlookers
with occult instruments and beguiling sounds. Forever surrounded by a sense of intrigue,
the world soon cottoned on to the elusive yet enchanting musical powers of this
otherworldly beast. The results are that, today, his shamanistic sonic powers take him all
around the world…
Yet despite the best efforts of the hungry masses, the mysterious Claptone still remains a
mythical, little known figure who slips in and out of the shadows, leaving in his wake lasting
musical experiences. Since hatching in 2012, he has continued to send people into a frenzy
with his DJ sets, which are underpinned by supple grooves from the house world, are
coloured with real soul and can jack you up or zone you out depending on the mood.
To stay so private and unknown in the visual modern world of likes and photos is no mean
feat, especially considering he plays more than 260 shows around the world each year. In
2017 he brought his own immersive and otherworldly 'The Masquerade' events with special
guests including Black Coffee, Claude von Stroke, MK and Pete Tong all joining the fun to
various places around the world. Besides appearing in Los Angeles, Rio, Berlin, Paris, New
York and Barcelona, Claptone brought 'The Masquerade' back to Ibiza, with highlights
including two all night long joint venture shows with Elrow at Amnesia. They saw him
spellbind the audience for seven straight hours and were the first sold out shows of the year
for the club.
