Well folks! Theyâ€™re back! After announcing a break from touring in February 2017, the powerhouse EDM brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence from the UK known famously as â€œDisclosureâ€ are back and funkier than ever! Their latest track â€œFunky Sensationâ€ samples the powerhouse disco vocalist Gwen McCrae, who is well-known for her 1975 disco hit â€œRockin Chair,â€ and also released three other 80s inspired disco tracks over the weekend too titled â€œLove Can Be So Hard,â€ â€œWhere Angels Fear to Tread,â€ and â€œWhere You Come From.â€ Quintessential Future Funk tracks, the Lawrence brothers use 21st century sampling technology with the classical kicks and bounces of yesterdayâ€™s music to produce a series of disco loops and melodies that are sure to make you dance while soothing your soul. In a recent interview with BBC 1 Radioâ€™s Annie Mac, Disclosure discussed that they were inspired by their love of ’80s pop artists like Alexander Oâ€™Neil andÂ Luther Vandross to create their most recent their masterpieces.
These four releases over the weekend may also be previews of more to come, as the Surray-based duo touted the upcoming release of another album, the first since their legendary 2015 hit compilation â€œCaracalâ€ that got them nominated for a Grammy. The duo told BBC 1 Radio that â€œwe reckon weâ€™ve put together about 80 to 100 different ideas over the past year, but we have no idea which of them, if any, will actually be on the album.â€ As a disco and funk producer myself who was personally inspired to get into electronic music after seeing Disclosureâ€™s legendary 2015 performance at Firefly Music Festival, I am so excited to see this legendary duo return into the mainstream and bring some â€œfunky sensationâ€ into the hearts and minds of electronic dance music listeners everywhere!
