Disclosure – Willing & Able ft. Kwabs

Rising star Kwabs has been called in for guest vocals on Disclosure’s new single, ‘Willing & Able’. The tune blends Kwabs’ hefty lung power and soulful tones, with the laid-back, more down-tempo string to Disclosure’s bow. It will feature on the duo’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, ‘Caracal’, hitting the shelves next month.

Usher – Good Kisser (Disclosure Remix)

The brothers Lawrence have gone done a remix. For Usher. Disclosure lay on their usual trademark swirling, kickin’ sound to create a tune that’s bound to get a lot of airtime. It’s Disclosure remixing Usher for Pete’s sake. Whether it’s any good or not is another thing.

Disclosure + Friend Within – The Mechanism (FaltyDL Remix)

Pop-house phenoms Disclosure recently teamed up with Friend Within for some bassy fun in the shape of ‘Mechanism’. Recognise it? Thought so. It’s been somewhat hard to miss.

However, someone always thinks they can do it better and in this case that someone is FaltyDL, real name Drew Lustman. Quite why you would change your name to FaltyDL if your name was as good as Drew Lustman is beyond us, but we’re prepared to let him off the hook given he obviously knows his way round a remix.

Well done Drew Lustman for a cracking remix.

Disclosure – F For You (Eats Everything Remix)

It was only a matter of time before a collaboration like this came about. In fact it’s crazy it’s not been done before, but after both acts supported one another on tour dates recently at XOYO and Ally Pally, a remix has come to fruition. Eats Everything has taken Disclosure’s most recent version of ‘F For You’ featuring Mary J. Blige and given it the once over. Surely a match made in heaven.

Although it does contain Eats’ trademark infectious, punchy synth stabs, we were a little underwhelmed. Sure it’ll get a dancefloor shifting their feet when it’s dropped mid-set, but nothing to write home about here. Considering their gargantuan stature, it’s a shame 😦

On the plus side, Eats Everything is releasing some original material with Justin Martin in the form of his ‘Hello Mr. Jello’ EP at the end of March. It nicely coincides with the last few weeks of his residency at XOYO, check out who is playing alongside him here.

Disclosure – Apollo

Just four months on from releasing their debut album, Disclosure are back with ‘Apollo’. It would be no surprise if that album, ‘Settle’, were to win the now-sponsored Barclaycard Mercury Prize on Wednesday night. ‘Apollo’ is more restrained and less pop than much of the album, instead foregrounding the deeper, darker sides of the duo’s arsenal.

Echoey vocals and uncompromising beats recall some of their (slightly) earlier work, and all in all it’s no singalong. It is effective dancefloor fodder though, and it will be interesting to see what direction the still-impossibly-young pair take next.

Disclosure – Help Me Lose My Mind (Paul Woolford Remix)

Woolie’s back again.

Having turned 2013 into his own piano-driven fiefdom, Paul Woolford took to the Radio 1 airwaves with Annie Mac last week to show off his latest ivory twinkling beauties. As we’re proud champions of the use of the piano in modern house music, we sat up and took notice, just in case you didn’t.

We’ve already doffed our cap to the stomping bass and soaring pianos of his George Fitzgerald ‘I Can Tell (By The Way You Move)’ re-edit. If you feel the same as us, pre-order it now from all good record distributors.

But then he only goes and surpasses that, with his atmospheric yet playful take on Disclosure’s ‘Help Me Lose My Mind’ featuring London Grammar. We love this and it’s coming soon on PMR Records.

Woolford has a stellar line up of dates between now and Crimbo, with the highlights being the closing party of his Sunday night residency at Space Ibiza, a couple of potential face-melters at London’s Fabric, and a 20th Anniversary celebration of The Essential Mix at The Warehouse Project. Big.

Disclosure – F For You (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs Remix)

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs takes on Disclosure’s ‘F For You’ to give us this bass heavy, sparkling wonder of a tune. It’s a hefty number with a lot going on, but it works. Expect some heavy rotations. We’re just curious as to why it’s taken so long for this dream team to come together.

Disclosure – You & Me (Flume Remix)

Hot off the desk, here’s the fractured and stuttered remix of Disclosure’s ‘You & Me’. It comes from producer Flume and hits quite the grand scale. Release date’s unknown – something the Aussie producer will no longer be once this gets thrown around.

Disclosure – When A Fire Starts To Burn

‘When A Fire Starts To Burn’ is Disclosure’s new single, and on June 3rd they will finally have an album, entitled ‘Settle’. In recent weeks there has been the beginnings of a backlash against Disclosure. Led (as are most things these days) by VICE’s consistently brilliant Clive Martin (if you don’t know him, remedy that sharpish), the suggestion is that they are (or are at least becoming) a little too polished, a little too marketable for their own good. As Martin puts it in his excellent piece on the imminent demise of the house revival, “we haven’t seen the Alice Deejay or DJ Otzi for this scene yet, but it can’t be far off, and they’ll probably either be Disclosure or sound a lot like them.”

Leaving aside (for now) any debate on the merits of Ms Deejay’s work, the question remains: are Disclosure the Rizzle Kicks of house music? This question sits alongside other questions like, does commercial success and everything that goes with it automatically diminish the appeal and value of an artist, or even of a scene/genre? Do artists inevitably lose integrity when they become part of the modern music marketing machine (the MMMM)? And, does any of this matter? The default answer would be no, as long as the music is good.

‘When A Fire Starts To Burn’ is certainly a banger, in a sparse, Bashmore kind of way – it’s got a lot of urgency without the slinky appeal of some of their earlier work, but it’s sure to build even more excitement ahead of the album release: whereupon they can expect wild riches, world domination, and inevitable derision by absolutely everyone. A lot to look forward to.
