Claptone vs. Golden Features – Elektro Clash
In last week's Elektro Clash, Pep & Rash and their hot new single "Red Roses" was taken down by acclaimed up and coming producer Golden Features and his new single "No One" from his forthcoming EP. Now, masked icons collide as Golden Features takes on Claptone's "Dear Life."
The release of "Dear Life" followed Claptone's acclaimed BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, a Beatport chart-topping smash remix of Gregory Porter and an incredible live show at the Miami Ultra Music Festival. Teaming up with French vocalist Jaw (who is part of the production trio dOP), “Dear Life” is a pure house masterpiece, complete with deep rolling basslines and classic piano progressions that mesh beautifully with the heartfelt vocal portions, while showcasing Claptone’s brilliant production skills.
Mysterious Australian DJ-producer Golden Features has been establishing himself as one of the most exciting up and coming artists in the dance music world. Ever since the release of his breakout self-titled EP, fans have been anxiously awaiting his next set of deep sounds. After unveiling the first track from his XXIV EP, "Baxter," it became clear that his next release would be something special. With "No One" featuring vocalist Thelma Plum, Golden Features is further supporting that notion. "No One" will be available as a free download when you preorder the EP from this Friday, June 5.
