A Sweetest Drip disclosure:
high-brow music analysis always makes us want to play Super Cat Napper II Turbo on hardcore.
But I have a feature to write, so I’ll catch Zs another time and talk about some cool bros I’ve been vibing out with.
Jessie Ware – Running (Disclosure Remix)
Disclosure brings a much-needed something to my indie playlist
When I first listened to the Londoner bros’ remix of Running by smooth songstress Jessie Ware, I immediately felt that something at the 1:17 mark. From the get-go, it’s obvious that the sultry original has been re-worked into a poppin’ dancefloor panty-dropper.
One YouTube commenter went as far as to say that Jessie Ware’s Running is “foreplay music” — if that’s the case, Disclosure’s remix is pure aural sex.
Due to keeping production value far from banal, fellow artists and critics alike have given the Laurence brothers a proper spotlight since their debut on the blogosphere.
Thanks to James Blake, Mount Kimbie and Koreless we may look back on 2011 as the year dubstep got in touch with its emotions. Or it will just be the year everybody remembered that the last Burial LP from 2007 was really amazing, even without heavy crunching basslines.
But being only 17 and 20 years old you can’t be certain if brothers Howard and Guy Laurence, producing under the moniker Disclosure, were even listening to dubstep back in 2007 when that record came out. Well, if they continue making soulful tracks that blend garage and dubstep aesthetics with the melodic sensibility of r&b like they do, nobody will care what tunes they were pumping five years ago.

Disclosure – Tenderly / Flow
Disclosure are a welcomed change from overy-motional elitestep and juiced-up extremestep artists. Getting to know tracks like Tenderly and Flow is pretty easy: press play, let the music fill your soul, and express yourself as you see fit on life’s dancefloor. That’s exactly what I’m doing, and I feel all the bits — smooth vocal clips, slick chords, and seductive percussion.
Disclosure – Carnival / I Love That. . . You Know EP
It’s plain to see that Guy and Howard have established a sense of where they are, where they want to be, and what they stand for: proper dancefloor gentlemen. The Laurence bros use a lil something called passion to give the lords and ladies of dance everything they want to vibe with and beyond.
