- Settle

Disclosure do their thing with ease and they do it very well. The hype is warranted for now.

Jun 14th 2013 | Label: Universal
The much-hyped debut LP from British fellas Disclosure is finally here in all its garage, house and dub glory. Settle has been anticipated for some time – now, we get to see if the Lawrence brothers really do have what it takes to save electronic music.

New single When A Fire Starts To Burn initiates us into the world of the album very quickly. Beat and lyric repetition – one of the most simple but effective ploys used to create good (or just popular) dance music. Breakout song Latch still reels you in via the gorgeous vocals of Sam Smith, despite this track being a monster hit for some time now. Singles White Noise feat. Aluna George and You & Me feat. Eliza Doolittle shine, but the other collaborations are just as easy on the old ears.

Defeated No More feat. Edward Macfarlane is a sexy, slow moving piece of dance music that sends the best kind chill up your spine. Confess To Me, which has the amazing Jessie Ware on vocals has single written all over it. Actually, there isn't one track that you really could deny single potential – probably due to the recycled beats syndrome that is evident on the record. If you love your electro, you won't mind this one bit. Newcomers may not be so kind. Disclosure do their thing with ease and they do it very well. The hype is warranted for now.
