Pop/house duo Disclosure played an impromptu DJ set from their kitchen late last week, and streamed the whole thing via social media.

Disclosure have dropped ‘Moog For Love’, a surprise EP which is the first material from the duo since last year’s ‘Caracal’. You can listen to the new music below.

On paper Disclosure remixing Australian man-of-the-moment Flume, and his track 'Never Be Like You', should be a homerun for everyone involved, right? Well, no. For some fans, Disclosure's remix – which was posted to Soundcloud today – is the worst thing to happen to them in 2016.
Parklife's sister festival, WILD LIFE, has also unveiled its line-up this week, with Disclosure, Rudimental and Ice Cube all scheduled to headline the Brighton-based festival on 11th and 12th June.

While the pair didn’t get a chance to meet the President — perhaps he’s more of a Sam Smith fan — they did get to pet his dogs, Sunny and Bo.
