As you may already know, Yo-ster is not a reporter, nor a pop heckler. Gathering information and spitting it back at you is hardly my responsibility here. This URL is about disclosure and here we have some solid proof of our intention to uncover evidence of pop magnitude.
The new British project is called Disclosure and it’s basically unlike anything anyone else is doing although next year, if the (pop) stars are aligned, it could be exactly what everyone in the world wants to be doing. For the record, I’m speculating quite a lot based on just 3 tracks from their upcoming EP, The Law of One, but not to worry, we are not the type to revel in artist’s failure (unless it’s Wolfmother). So far we’re generally pleased just to see Disclosure exist as part of the pop ecosystem.
Gigi, an evocative 22 year old performer and student of Amy Winhouse’s music tutors, has joined forces with stylish producers ‘TRU_FIX’ and ‘dupe’, or as he calls himself on this project, ‘The Advocate’, to form Disclosure. Gigi‘s voice is, simply put, major. A lot of seduction with a little emotion, their dub grooves are mature and carefully composed to the point of perfection. Scalar is a record that clearly discloses pure British trip-pop pleasure. Here’s a clip.
I realize the clip is painfully short. I’d be pissed if I were you. Expect to hear more next month.
Full disclosure (couldn’t resist that one), I’ve been traveling on special business with ‘The Advocate’ (real name Simon Robinson) and he tells me the EP is officially out on Weapons Grade/Universal Records in the UK November 22nd.
