CLiQ - Clap Clap
With previous smashes like Wavey and their excellent remix of Martin Garrix & David Guetta’s So Far Away, CLiQ are very much ones to watch. It’s no surprise, then, that Garrix has snapped up this fierce new track from them for his ever-eclectic label, STMPD RCRDS.
A phat slice of hip-house, Clap Clap continues CLiQ’s reputation for crafting big dancefloor bombs with a lot of attitude. Focused around a sultry female vocal, the track has a sparse arrangement that lets the voice guide the way. Low slung bass, shuffling tribal percussion and distorted synth beeps form the groove, and the vibe that’s created it a seriously sexy one for deeper dancefloors. There’s still plenty of crossover appeal in it too thanks to the excellent vocal performance.
CLiQ have many accolades to their name, including a Silver sales/streaming certification in the UK, a #1 slot on the Spotify UK Viral Chart and a #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart. With support from Pete Tong, Afrojack, Oliver Heldens and more, it’s clear that they are a duo that are going places.
CLIIQ ‘Clap Clap’ is released on STMPD RCRDS on July 13.
