The German DJ and production duo Claptone specializes in house and tech house genres. They often wear golden masks in the style of a plague doctor, which helps to create an air of mystery around their identities.
After it became clear that Claptone often performed at three venues at the same time, people started to wonder if Claptone was actually three different people. Claptone has played at some of the most iconic venues, including Hï Ibiza Pacha and Tomorrowland.
Claptone have been around since 2013, when he first gained recognition with the song “No Eyes” featuring JAW from the electronic act dOP. He’s released two albums so far, Charmer in 2015 on Different Recordings and The Masquerade Mixes in 2017.
Claptone carry a typical outfit which includes a golden mask with a beak, similar to a Plague Doctor, as well as white gloves, so his identity remains unknown. Little is known about Claptone’s background, except that the act is based in Berlin. According to the website Warp.la, the act is actually two people.
