New Music To Know: Disclosure Creates The Dance Album Of The Year, So Far
Since its release this past Tuesday (June 4), the Internet has practically exploded with positive words for the British duo’s debut, with critics using words like “flawless” and even in one case hailing it as the “British dance album of the year.” And in the UK, they’re already in a chart battle for the No. 1 slot with Queens of the Stone Age.
Part of their appeal is that they aren’t part of the EDM scene–they’re not in the lineage of Avicii, Swedish House Mafia or even Deadmau5. The music they’re creating is an exploration of house music, UK garage (before it evolved into dubstep), soul hooks, and pop songs.
