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 & Red Bull Studios, Friday 8th March 2013

Disclosure Red Bull

With Disclosure‘s debut album set to drop in the spring, their steady path to global domination continues apace – and with the launch of three new flavours (or Editions) of Red Bull’s energy juice, the brothers have been asked by RB to curate the line-up for a special party at Great Suffolk Street Warehouse in London this Friday.

And what a line-up:

                • Disclosure (live)
                • Todd Edwards
                • Voyeur
                • Shadow Child B2B Friend Within
                • Medlar B2B Leon Vynehall
                • Happa

Tickets are sold out but keep your eyes peeled on Twitter for spares – and in the meantime, tuck into some Disclosure highlights, including HudMo‘s splendid remix of ‘White Noise’.

Disclosure – White Noise ft. Aluna Francis

If you weren’t already aware, Zane Lowe aired Disclosure’s new single ‘White Noise’ last night. They’ve recruited Aluna Francis from rising stars AlunaGeorge to provide the vocals and with catchy hooks aplenty, get ready for this slinky house number to completely saturate the radio waves. It’s destined to be top of the pops.

With a debut album due out in the not-too-distant-future and a massive UK and European tour ahead, the rise to superstardom continues for the brotherly duo. Given their uncanny ability to reinvigorate the 90s dance scene, we thought we’d use this as an excuse to post a few of the garage classics that may have inspired the young lads:

Disclosure – Latch (T Williams Club Edit)

We were huge fans of the original version of Latch by Disclosure – so imagine our delight when we heard this remix by one of the hottest producers around, T Williams. The fact that we’ve failed to post any of his stuff before is something of an embarrassment, given the extent to which he has been smashing it for the past year or two (to be fair, we did give a mention to his remix of Javeon McCarthy’s excellent ‘Lost Time’). Here he gives ‘Latch’ a decidedly garage edge, replacing the laid back fuzziness of the original with an insistent, shuffling urgency. It’s a party tune, and no mistake.

T Williams has undergone something of a musical odyssey over the past decade, from releasing seminal grime tracks as DJ Dread D, through the UK Funky movement to the forefront of the new house sound championed by PMR Records, who released his ‘Pain & Love’ EP in September. Why not give that a spin, whilst you’re here?

Disclosure – Latch

Can you believe it’ll be 2013 next year? This inane observation was prompted by the premiere of the first single from Disclosure’s (aka the brothers Lawrence) debut album, due to be released in…2013! PMR Records are doing the honours, keeping up their sterling run of releases from Julio Bashmore to Jessie Ware’s sumptuous ‘Devotion’.

Latch’ continues the shuffling beat + soulful vocals (this time by newcomer Sam Smith) combination that made this year’s ‘The Face’ EP so listenable.

Accessible dance music pin-up Annie Mac has installed the track in her upcoming compilation and enlisted them for the accompanying tour. Guaranteed fun.

Disclosure – Flow

Disclosure have been Human Drizzle favourites for a while now, as readers of the blog and our Twitter will know. The sibling pair are set for a massive 2012, and what better way to start it than with another gem in ‘Flow’, the B-side to upcoming new single, ‘Tenderly’? The latter has been around for a while now, and it’s also worth checking out – but there’s something about the assured basslines and garage urgency of ‘Flow’ that really revs our engine. Highly recommended.
