NEWS | Gregory Porter celebrates dance scene success with UK single release: Liquid Spirit (Claptone Remix)

‘Man Of The Moment’ Gregory Porter today announced details of a UK single release of a remix of his classic track ‘Liquid Spirit’, after Berlin-based electronic production enigma Claptone’s original remix version caused a significant stir on the dance scene. The collaborative radio edit version is now being released as a single, with the impact date set for 4 September. 
Since its release in May, the original ‘Liquid Spirit’ Claptone remix has become an underground dance hit. It scored praise from numerous dance blogs including who exclaimed “It’s pretty hard to not be in awe of everything Gregory Porter touches and Claptone seems to have that knack of only putting out absolutely massive productions, so this remix was never going to disappoint…”
The track then began receiving multiple plays throughout Ibiza in key clubs, until it became the most Shazamed track in Ibiza and scored a number one on dance mecca Beatport. The track is on course to become a summer smash, with over 4 million streams on Spotify, 780k plays on soundcloud and 600k views on YouTube, leading to the decision to release a radio version which is expected to score numerous plays across key UK radio stations. It has already had incredible support from key shows at BBC Radio 1 including Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Danny Howard and Mista Jam at BBC Radio 1xtra.
Gregory who is primarily known in the UK for his jazz/soul inspired vocals has surprised many with his remarkable success within the dance music scene, which has also included featuring on collaborative Disclosure single ‘Holding On’, which received critical acclaim from taste makers including, Fader and Indie Shuffle.
Nearly two years after its release, his Grammy-winning album, ‘Liquid Spirit’, shot up into the Top 10 of the UK Album Charts, reached Gold sales and became the most streamed jazz album of all time. This year Gregory’s televised appearances and performances have included his hotly anticipated Glastonbury Festival debut, Sunday Night at The Palladium and VE Day 70. Gregory plays V Festival this summer, amongst others, and tours the UK next spring – opening at iconic London venue the Royal Albert Hall on 4 April 2016. For more information visit:
Unlike Gregory, whose distinctive look means he’s pretty hard to miss in a crowd, producer Claptone’s identity is a well-kept secret, with the mystical producer only performing live in a gold Venetian mask. Claptone, who burst onto the scene in 2012, has a London-based performance this summer where he will showcase his Immortal Live show on the main stage of SW4 Festival, supporting dance legends: Faithless.
