 We know what you’re going to say: ‘Disclosure aren’t real DJs’. While they are predominantly a live outfit, they do DJ a lot, especially at their Wild Life shows, and considering DJing is generally pressing a succession of buttons these days, no one can accuse Disclosure of not pressing buttons — given the size and complexity of their live shows.

2015 has been a busy year for the Lawrence brothers; they scored a No.1 album with ‘Caracal’, a collaborative album that saw old faces like Sam Smith rub shoulders with new artists like Lion Babe. 

As well as a new album, they’ve somehow found the time to put on their own festival, Wild Life, in Shoreham (near Brighton), and more recently Las Vegas, and they’ve also been quietly creating their own underground hit factory with their Method White imprint that has seen a spate of club smashes from Jonas Rathsman, with ‘Wolfbane’, MJ Cole with ‘Bouldaz’, and more recently Eats Everything’s pulverising rerub of Tiga vs Audion’s ‘Dancing’. 

Who knows what else the brothers have in store for the rest of the year. Don’t bet against a raft of killer remixes of Caracal’s juiciest cuts, a new live show, which is even more impressive that their last from what we’ve seen, and a few surprises too.
