DESCRIPTION:
5 Track EP Of Pumpin Tech & House - Disclosure are back with brand new music. They started teasing the return on socials over the weekend and began the global roll out of tracks on Monday evening. Mirroring their Moonlight EP in 2018, the duo released a new track every day across the week.

The EP’s title track ‘Ecstasy’ kicked off the week when the brothers played it during a live mix on the band’s YouTube channel from Guys kitchen. On the track they said “This song came into existence early 2019 during a writing session at Guy’s house in London. We were curiously chopping up samples from various 70s disco and soul records when suddenly, Fantasy by Aquarium Dream gave us the exact thing we were searching for. This song is made entirely to get a human being to their feet and directly to the dance floor.”

Next up was ‘Tondo’ – which received a BBC Radio 1 play from Annie Mac on Tuesday night: “Over the past few years, we have been exploring more and more African genres of music. This specific track samples the great Cameroonian musician Eko Roosevelt. If this track is anything, it’s fast, punchy & above all... fun..”.

The brothers took to YouTube to premiere the third track ‘Expressing What Matters’ on Wednesday night which saw fans tuning in to chat to Guy & Howard and hear the latest release. “This track samples the legendary song Lowdown by Boz Scaggs. We really wanted to try and focus in on those wonderful backing vocals that permeate through the original & give it such soul. They ended up becoming the focal point of the entire track… being chopped and skewed to their limit. The whole thing was one big audio science experiment for us.”

Zane Lowe premiered yesterday’s track ‘Etran’ on his Beats 1 show – which once again, explores further African flavours. “The bulk of the song samples Niger-based band Etran Finatawa. With this track we are exploring an idea... How far can we take a sound that is somewhere in the realm of house music, until it morphs into a whole new being? Colliding genres together in a mash of pulsating, repeating rhythms and tones... this is the furthest we have ever taken that idea.”

Following the Zane play of Etran, Disclosure later confirmed that a fifth and final track ‘Get Close’ would be available at midnight GMT completing the five track ‘Ecstasy’ EP. On this final offering of the week, Disclosure said “Years ago we wrote a song called Get Close that never saw the light of day. We aren’t usually ones to go back to an old idea after so long, but we never got that hook out of our heads.”

Disclosure are brothers Guy & Howard Lawrence. This year marks 10 years since they released their debut single ‘Offline Dexterity’. In that decade (they are still only 28 and 25 respectively) they have released two number 1 albums - Settle (2013) and Caracal (2015) - clocked up 4.5 billion streams, 4.5 million album sales, sold 500k tickets to their headline shows and topped festival bills all over the world – something they do with ease whilst also enjoying playing to packed out sweaty clubs whenever they can.

Last FM Information on Disclosure

Please note the information is done on a artist keyword match and data is provided by LastFM.
Disclosure are Guy Lawrence and Howard Lawrence, brothers from Surrey, United Kingdom. Crafting their own lo-fi dream-dub sound, Disclosure effortlessly combine 2-step garage rhythms and dubstep basslines with their own rich musical heritage of soul, jazz and 90s hip hop. After their debut single on Moshi-Moshi Records in September 2010, the duo released a 4 track EP on Transparent Records the year after. 2012 saw the release of "Tenderly/Flow" and "The Face" EP on Greco-Roman. Their first single for Universal Record's PMR was called "Latch". On February 1st 2013, they released "White Noise", featuring vocals by Aluna Francis from AlunaGeorge. Their debut album "Settle" was released on June 3rd, preceded by the single "You & Me" released on April 28th and premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio One on April 19th. http://disclosureofficial.com 2) On their previous tour, Disclosure arrived in Newport News, VA, 4 1/2 hours from home to learn that their show had been cancelled. Here, most bands would have called it a day, but instead they frantically called friends to search for shows via MySpace. They ended up playing for free and headlining a show in Richmond, VA. This is just one of many stories that showcase Disclosure’s dedication. In the past 3 years they have released 3 albums, have been part of an East Coast distributed compilation, performed in 7 states, went on 2 self-booked tours, and played over 50 shows. They have an upcoming full East Coast tour scheduled for July/August 2010 and they have no plans of slowing down. 3) Side project of Crunch Pod artist C/A/T. With the Disclosure project, Ben Arp of C/A/T shifts the focus towards tense samples and hard rhythmic sequences. While C/A/T has had a more abstract sound, Disclosure presents a more sonically straight-forward approach to songwriting. “Full Disclosure” attempts to further lift the veil and reveal the hidden hand that orchestrates world events. Extremely limited run of 25 copies and available only at Crunch Pod and was only available at live C/A/T performances in Summer 2005. CD-R version is out of print. This album was recently re-issued as a digital download direct from Crunch Pod. 4) An Alternative/Powerpop/Rock band from Faringdon, UK. Formed 5 years ago Disclosure have earnt their reputation as one of the most exciting bands to emerge from the Swindon area through relentless gigging, energetic shows and great sounds. Performing on stage with the likes of Young Guns and The Rileys, Disclosure have played at many of the biggest and most respected venues and festivals in and around Oxfordshire. Now signed with New Vision Records and having recently released their latest EP at the o2 academy2 Islington, Disclosure have never sounded so focussed and relevant and this year will be hitting venues around the UK. http://facebook.com/disclosuremusic Read more on Last.fm.
