Beats 1’s weekly radio show, One Mix, has made a name for itself consistently hosting talented artists from all across the electronic music spectrum.
To send off 2017, it featured a 24 hour mix session with some of the year’s best selections, hosted by Anna Lunoe and Jax Jones. One Mix hasn't wasted anytime launching 2018's series with some seriously hot 🔥guest hosts like Marshmello and MK. This week, Claptone’s delectable beats will take over One Mix to get you deep into the groove.
Claptone is a bit of a mysterious character. Donning a golden bird mask which resembles the imagery of medieval plague doctors, Claptone mixes dark and eerie imagery with seriously sexy beats. His 2013 hit "No Eyes" got all of us hooked, and ever since Claptone has been circling the globe to bring his cross-over friendly deep house to audiences everywhere.
This week you can catch the Berlin DJ spin an exclusive set for Beats 1 One Mix live by heading over to apple.co/onemix.
