Disclosure – Apollo (Original Mix)
One of, if not the, hottest names in electronic music in 2013 has been none other than the English duo, Disclosure. Helping revive a fading UK garage scene, brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence have advanced this club sound back on the map. Riding the success of their debut album, Settle, Disclosure channels their inner deep side into their new tune, “Apollo.” Apparent right away, the signature garage shuffling high-hats on a hard 4/4 kick introduces some hauntingly sweet female vocal samples. As soon as you think your goosebumps are gone, the dynamic bassline creeps in with a powerful sliding rhythm. The ominous vibe of the song’s breaks compliment the transitions back to the downbeat perfectly, as deeper house compositions should.
