The much anticipated debut full length from Disclosure is here! Rarely does an album live up the amount of hype that Settle has already amassed, but not-surprisingly the Lawrence brothers are able exceed expectations. For those that don't know, the duo of Guy Lawrence and Howard Lawrence have taken the dance world by storm with a hand full of singles and EPs, and now they finally unleash a proper full length album that breathes new life into the electronic dance scene. The thing that sets these guys apart from the plethora of house/edm producers out there is that they are able to create a sound that is accessible to masses as well as the underground dancefloor, no easy feat by any means. They keep things moving through beats that seamlessly fuse 90's house, UK garage, bass, and a touch of disco, all topped with infectious vocals from some of today's brightest talent. Check the vibe on the big singles "White Noise" with AlunaGeorge, "Latch" with Sam Smith, and "You&Me" with Eliza Doolitte, then turn it up with "Confess To Me" with Jess Ware, and the club favorite "When A Fire Starts To Burn." 14 tracks on double vinyl with gatefold pic sleeve.
