Berlin’s Claptone comes to London to unveil The Masquerade at Ministry of Sound. For centuries, the world’s rogues and rich alike have donned masks to engage in their fun under a cloak of anonymity and for one night only, London’s craziest will be invited to enjoy the experience of a Venetian masked ball in the mighty main room.
Claptone is hot property on the global electronic scene, playing up to 200 DJ gigs per year around the world. He performs wearing a gold Venetian mask, top hat and white magicians gloves to rapt music lovers at the best clubs and festivals on every continent. The Masquerade is an extension of this character that will bridge the divide between the dance floor and DJ booth that has been cultivated by the recent superstar DJ renaissance.
In 2015 Claptone releases his debut artist album that’s full of his trademark house music featuring vocalists from the indie world. In addition, his remixes of cult artists such as Gregory Porter, Faithless and Metronomy have found their way into sets of all the biggest DJs worldwide.
The masked ball allows people of all colours and classes to come together and do things that they normally wouldn’t dare. On Friday 24th April, one of the world’s most colourful characters throws open the doors to one of the world’s most iconic clubs to invite fun loving fans of excess to come and party at a modern take on a masquerade
The Gallery, Ministry of Sound and Claptone are excited to welcome fans of amazing house music to experience a fresh dimension to clubbing difficult to achieve in a city that has seen and heard almost everything
