On June 10, 2021 by ocedm

Appearing on hau5trap for the first time is Golf Clap with four on the floor hypnotic tune in “Lose It”. Released on the newly formed imprint from deadmau5, the song from Detroit based Hugh Cleal features grooving basslines and tight percussion with deep vocal chops. Oliver Heldens, Robbie Rivera, and ASCO are a few of the early supporters of the track.

Read on for an interview with Gold Clap as he talks about how the past year has been for him, how he connected with hau5trap, and a few of his favorite songs!

How’s it going Golf Clap? Thanks for taking the time to have a quick chat. How has the past year and a half been for you with everything going on?

Great, thanks! I’ve been well and spent a lot of the time off catching up on life. The previous 5 years were like a blur and I didn’t realize how much other stuff I was neglecting. Now that shows are back up I’ve been incredibly fortunate to be playing so much. I can’t tell you how good it feels to be back on the road doing what I love. With Bryan departing the group to work on his solo project Wave Point I have doubled down on my efforts to push the Golf Clap sound even further.

How would you describe your sound in three animals, and why those animals?

Hmmmm I would have to say elephants because they shake the ground, cicadas because they have a natural rhythm, and eagles because I legit try and use eagle sounds whenever possible

deadmau5 launched his new label hau5trap earlier this year and your track “Lose It” is the seventh release from the label. Can you tell us about how the connection was formed with the hau5trap?

I was part of an Insomniac Records/mau5trap compilation a year or so ago with a track we did with MASTERIA. I’m assuming that’s what got me on the radar and when I saw the new label launch I knew I wanted to be on it so I made sure they heard “Lose It” first.

How does “Lose It” differ from your past couple of tunes?

So Golf Clap originally had a lot of deep house tunes and more vibey stuff, but as the project grew the music we performed was much higher energy. Since going solo, I’ve kept that momentum and want to keep pushing the envelope on these harder more dance floor friendly tuned.

After being at it for nearly a decade now, what has been the biggest change you’ve seen in the music industry?

I’ve actually been at it for longer under different projects, but the biggest difference now is how digital music has transformed and help grow the fan base of music as well as how commercially viable and main stream dance music has become. I know a lot of people probably hate that but I came from partying in dirty warehouses where there wasn’t a viable way to really make the kind of living people can, so I have learned to embrace all of the changes that come. The music scene is going to be completely different in another 10 years.

What does the rest of the year look like for you?

I’ll be working hard on new music and playing a lot more club dates as well as Elements, Freaky Deaky, Afterland, and a few other festivals TBA. I can’t wait to catch up with everyone.
