Hit Of The Week: Disclosure “Watch Your Step”

 Disclosure shared the official video for their new single, “Watch Your Step” featuring  Kelis “Watch Your Step” is from the U.K. duo’s new album, ENERGY (Capitol Records), which has been nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album – becoming their third consecutive album to earn a nomination in the category. The heart-warming, odd-ball “Watch Your Step” video was directed by the ever-brilliant Kid Studio.

Divus Julius presents: Disclosure

A pop-oriented synthesis of numerous styles, including house, garage, dubstep, and bass, along with well-timed vocal collaborations, made Disclosure one of the most successful production teams of the 2010s. Although they broke through while the path to commercial success was shortening for acts classified as EDM (electronic dance music), the duo, consisting of English siblings Guy and Howard Lawrence, separated themselves with a deeper awareness of underground dance music dating back to the disco era.

After returning in February with ‘Ecstasy’, Disclosure have confirmed that they’ve got a brand new album on the way! Called ‘ENERGY’ the new record is set to land on 28th August.

Hit of the week: Friendly Fires ‘Heaven Let Me In’

Friendly Fires made their live comeback earlier this year, dropping their track ‘Love Like Waves‘ before playing a summer of festival appearances (including a sold out headline show at London’s Brixton Academy). After collaborating with Disclosure on their album ‘Defeated No More’, ‘Heaven Let Me In’ sees a reunion of their creative forces, incorporating Friendly Fires’ signature club culture sound and grooves. The band frontman, Ed Macfarlane, described the track as “a song about being comfortable in your own skin. When you stop trying so hard and embrace your imperfections then opportunities arise and doors open.”

Hit of the week: Disclousure ‘Ultimatum’

Disclosure have finally made their return to music after a lengthy hiatus, with ‘Ultimatum’ featuring Fatoumata Diawara.

The groove-centric cut is a real foot-tapper effort from the UK duo, with Disclosure going in heavy with the Summery, dance-floor ready instrumentation that works wonder with the vocal work from the Maliani collaborator, Diawara.

The track has come as quite the surprise today, following a leak of the artwork that circulated Reddit overnight that got fans in all sorts. We already know they are working on a new album, and if ‘Ultimatum’ is anything to judge it by, we’re in for a good one.

Music by Bergman: SG Lewis

The fertile and prolific alliance between soul and electronic music has found in SG Lewis one of its most recent and outstanding disciples. At the young age of twenty, this Liverpool producer has uncovered a path which travels from James Blake to Disclosure and gives a digital gloss to smooth and velvety R&B. After remixing “You & I (Forever)”, by Jessie Ware, the British artist debuted on PMR Beat Club with “Warm”, his first single was streamed over half a million times in just a few months. At the end of last summer, Lewis followed it up with “Shivers”, an EP on which the warmth of R&B takes on a more avant-garde facet. With growing popularity, at the same time, as a DJ, the British artist has released a second EP .

Les muses de La Musa: NAO

La Musa ens presenta avui a la veu del nou r&b. Amb tot just un parell de llançaments, la londinenca NAO ja s’ha convertit en una de les veus més fresques i prometedores del R&B contemporani i el pop negre. Comparada amb artistes de la talla de FKA Twigs i  però amb especial predilecció per les cadències funk i el soul amb vistes de futur, la de Hackney es va donar a conèixer el 2014 amb un primer EP, el vibrant i bromós “So Good”, al qual li han seguit “February 15” i el single “Bad Blood”. Una bafarada d’aire fresc per als sons urbans que, a més d’obrir una nova escletxa en els camins del pop contemporani, ha portat la britànica a colar-se com a veu convidada al “Caracal” de Disclosure. Està previst que el seu àlbum de debut vegi la llum aquest mateix any.
