It was two days of wild and wooly EDM fun thick with trap, hip-hop and the cutting-edge sound of emerging producers on the verge of breaking out. But why isn’t anyone wearing pants?
BBC’s 1Xtra gave Ed Sheeran a pretty lofty distinction over the weekend when the singer-songwriter topped its recent power list.
They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, but a recent photo of Madonna hanging out with Disclosure backstage at Governors Ball in New York City doesn’t say any of the words you might have originally hoped.
Here’s to Jenny Lewis’ rainbow/beige pant-suit, Neko Case’s skeleton pants, the Kills’ leopard-print backdrop, Ezra Koenig’s camo shorts, and Janelle always giving us shivers when she sings ‘Given ‘Em What They Love.’
Disclosure’s remix stays relatively true to the original arrangement, adding a tasteful 4X4 house beat and signature synth bass lines for maximum body-moving impact.
The clip is true to the song’s title, featuring the inner workings of a factory-like machine set to the track’s house music beat.
The breakout out British duo open up on collaborations, DJ gigs and the first records they ever purchased in this illuminating video interview.
While EDM continues to get bigger, bolder and in many cases campier, Disclosure leads a new wave of artists looking to the roots of dance music to power their forward-thinking productions.
Day 3 was all about rule breaking for Arcade Fire and Beck, while Lana Del Rey took it as an opportunity to debut her new single.
“I’ve never been in a relationship before,” Smith says. ” I wanted to write an album for lonely people, because I don’t think there’s been enough music out there that talks about unrequited love.”
The country legend will perform for the first time this June at the famed U.K. festival. The bill this year also includes Arcade Fire, Lily Allen and Blondie.
Last month, Lorde teased that she’d be teaming up with Disclosure at the 2014 Brit Awards. And last night (Feb. 19), fans finally got to see the end result.
Bonnaroo will also feature performances from The Flaming Lips, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Kaskade, Damon Albarn, Neutral Milk Hotel and many, many more.
