One exciting name in electronic music remixing another. Of course it’s good. It’s Goddard. The low humming bass reminds me a little of “I Go Hard I Go Home” by The Presets. The breakdown/build up sequence is so simple but generates some sensational atmospheric tension which is missed quite often in modern indie dance (imo).
I know I carry on about Disclosure, but they just have such a knack for nailing a UK garage and bass sound that is super pop sensible without losing that distinct quality that appeals to the underground.
“What’s In Your Head” is fronted by a sassy, jazzed-up female voice laying down the law. Definitely in my head.
Disclosure are my new fav for bassy, future funky house.
“Tenderly” is a romantic awakening for bass tunes: A soulful vocal sample that beckons you into that rhythmic hip house flavour before it hits a percussive drop, laden with steel drums, broken kick, clicks and cow bell. Super stylish and highly accessible without compromising that juicy bass that pounds into your chest. Turn it up.
“Flow” is a fireworks display of synth chords, bass pulses, and electric keys circa 1990. They really know how to nail the vocal selection and arrangement – it’s got me really curious if it’s one of them perhaps?
Disclosure are currently booked to support SBTRKT throughout his UK tour, they are clearly blowing up and all you have to do it hit play to see why.
More good news: Disclosure are giving away an EP for free via their Facebook page – just go and like it to get access to the downloads on the band page.
It doesn’t include Tenderly/Flow – you will have to go and part with a couple of AUD over at the Make Mine Bandcamp for that pleasure, but it’s worth it – I’ve got my copy and it’s been on repeat for weeks. Make Mine are at 7″ label from the UK disseminating excellent music.
