Disclosure have revealed the video for their new single “White Noise” — a track that recently debuted in the UK singles chart at #2. In such a short time, these two have risen to the top of every critic’s list and the track comes ahead of their forthcoming artist album set to release later this year. The duo is set to embark on their second US tour in the coming weeks, making a stop at the mecca of all dance music events — Ultra Music Festival.Posted by
Disclosure’s “White Noise” took the #2 spot on the UK singles chart last week so, naturally, mainstream news media is beginning to take notice of the aspiring duo. The Guardian, one of Britain’s largest news publications, sat down with young brothers, Howard and Guy Lawrence, to discuss musical influences, living in outside London and experimental hits.
The article ties Dave Jones — known in entertainment as Zed Bias — into the discussion as Disclosure has helped revive demand for the house veteran’s dark garage sound. It took 15 years for Zed to perfect his music in the same way the 18 and 21 year old have, sparking a rumor that “they couldn’t possibly be mixing it themselves.”
Disclosure‘s “White Noise” has been climbing up the UK Top 40 chart over the last two weeks, currently sitting pretty at an impressive #2 spot. The track features a collaboration with another set of rising stars from London – AlunaGeorge – and it showcases both duo’s developing strengths. Now, Glasgow native Hudson Mohawke is ready to add his take on the glittering production, toning down the vocals and adding R&B drum kicks to give “White Noise” that HudMo flavor. Recently signed to G.O.O.D. Music after releasing countless hip-hop tinged productions both solo and alongside TNGHT partner-in-crime Lunice, Hudson Mohawke continues to prove his affinity for R&B influences.

During their “first fucking show in America” Disclosure treated fans to a live rendition of D.O.N.S. feat. Terri B’s “You Used to Hold Me.” In this video the brothers share a growing inclination towards incorporating “real” instruments into their performances. Howard explains that audience members have a more difficult time relating to an artist behind a computer than they do one behind a drum set. Watch the video to see the crowd go wild and hear about Disclosure’s acclamation to their growing success. If you’re interested in seeing them live, click below the break and check out a list of their recently announced tour dates. They’re set to return to Brooklyn in March, as well as stops at Ultra and Coachella.
Many producers have attempted to remix tracks of the late R&B princess Aaliyah and few have done so with the polished precision of Skream. The dubstep producer’s latest release “Kreepin’” is his take on Aaliyah’s notorious song “If Your Girl Only Knew,” giving listeners more ’90s R&B inspired house productions from the UK. Touching on the sounds of garage, Skream maintains the soul of the 1996 original while adding the 2-step rhythm of newcomers like Disclosure and Bondax have helped champion. The rework was featured in Skream’s December mix last year and now the track is available as a free download.

Before Eric Prydz blessed the world with his Essential Mix, Pete Tong took us through this week’s Essential New Tunes – a must-have list for all dance music enthusiasts who wish to stay on top of current releases. Beginning with Dirty South & Deniz Koyu’s, “Halo,” set to release Monday, spanning to Dimitri Vegas, Monguai & Like Mike’s massive new hit, “Mammoth,” to a cosmic new track from Jeremy Olander, “Let Me Feel.” Pete’s Essential New Tune of the Week was none other than Disclosure’s, “White Noise” – a song that reached #3 on the UK Dance iTunes Chart within a day of being released. 15 Minutes of Fame was spent with Russian prodigy Arty who chatted about life on the road, and played us Alesso’s famed mix of his song “When I See You,” in addition to his trance-induced remix of Zedd’s “Spectrum”. Full tracklist after the break.
Coachella 2013 lineup officially announced with Nicky Romero, Hardwell, Wolfgang Gartner, Luciano, and more
The Coachella 2013 lineup has officially been announced, but sadly Daft Punk is not on the bill. As it turns out those leaks were just as we suspected – more rumors. Despite our disappointment, we are still blown away by this year’s lineup. There’s Bassnectar, Infected Mushroom and Dog Blood, Nicky Romero, Wolfgang Gartner, Tommy Trash and Thomas Gold, Luciano, Seth Troxler, and Jamie XX and more – oh yeah, that’s just Friday. Coachella’s entire electronic music lineup is all killer no filler – even the groundbreaking duo out of Britain, Disclosure, is making an appearance.
For those of us who came up listening to the mellow electronica of Ben Gibbard and DNTEL’s side project The Postal Service – you’ll be happy to see that they are re-uniting for the first time since their hit album as well.
Editor’s Note: The last time that Daft Punk performed live was to close out Phoenix’s Madison Square Garden show in 2010 – could there still be a chance that the duo may make a surprise appearance at Coachella? Probably not, but I’m still holding out hope.
Guy and Howard, the boys of Disclosure, are at it again. The brothers and production duo uploaded a track in collaboration with fellow UK production team AlunaGeorge from their album set to be released on PMR Records later this year.
The track, “White Noise,” features both Disclosure’s typical bouncy production stylings as well as elements that dig even farther back into the archive of dance music sounds. It’s really amazing that despite their age, Disclosure has been able to research, adopt and reinvent the UK garage/two-step scene, driving it forward — almost effortlessly — into 2013. Enjoy the full stream below, we’ll report back with more details on the album as we find them.Posted by
