Disclosure Moonlight Yes! a new EP from the excellent Kingston visitors, Disclosure, the last thing we heard from them was a standa-alone single released a few months back called Ultimatum, we're super eager to hear what they've done this time. Guy & Howard explore a depth of influences across these five special tracks which draw from their love of African rhythms, deep house, disco and vocal jazz. “All of these tracks are sample based and we wanted to delve into genres that we hadn’t really experimented with in the past. What we ended up with worked so well together as a set - uplifting, upbeat and danceable, and it made sense to put them all out now in one go.” - Disclosure island 12"
