One Night Only with Disclosure in Manila

Written by Kix Suarez

Manila, brace yourself for a one of a kind night with the brothers Lawrence or more popularly known as electronic superstars Disclosure. The lads are set to light up the dancing floor for a one-night only DJ set on July 24 at the World Trade Center in Pasay.

After relentlessly touring the globe for the biggest festivals and the hottest club gigs, the brothers have finally come to Manila at their prime.

Disclosure in Manila is brought to you by the good fellows over at Vybe productions. After surprising us with some of the most memorable concerts we’ve seen in the past few years such as The xx live in Manila, The National and Mogwai.

Aside from the great people from Vybe productions, the production is holding this gig also in tandem with Worldwide Womb who have been in the business of partying. They’ve already staged numerous legendary raves and parties, which brought some of the biggest names in the world of EDM such as Avicii, Steve Aoki and Tiesto.

EDM and music lovers in general are in for a treat as the boys of Disclosure are not exactly just about peaks and big bass drops as most EDM hits are. The boys know how to make you dance in tune to your heartbeat. Disclosure have played hundreds of sold out shows which has created a shift in the British pop music scene. With their signature sound that defies the norm of what EDM has been boxed in for the past year or so.

Disclosure picked up their first significant national radio support upon the release of the "Tenderly"/"Flow" single in January 2012. The single led to significant interest in the subsequent June 2012 EP The Face, released on Greco-Roman. The EP included the popular remix of "Running" by Jessie Ware, which charted in both the Netherlands and Belgium as well as becoming a fixture of the 2012 Festival Circuit and featuring on the annual edition of Annie Mac presents.

The duo had their first UK hit in October 2012, with "Latch" (with the vocals from Sam Smith)which peaked at number 11 in the UK Singles Chart. The group maintained their momentum into 2013 - they were voted into the BBC Radio 1xtra 'Hot Ten For 2013' and scored two consecutive top 10 hit singles in "White Noise" (#2) (with AlunaGeorge) and "You & Me" (#10) (with Eliza Doolittle). These three singles were collected on an EP, The Singles. They released their full debut album, Settle, on PMR Records on 3 June 2013 and was met with commercial and critical success, debuting at number one on the UK Albums Chart, charting in many countries across Europe and Australia, and receiving four stars from the Guardian and a 9.1 score on Pitchfork.  They performed twice at Glastonbury Festival 2013 and appeared on Later… with Jools Holland. The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Dance Album.

In 2013, Disclosure embarked on a worldwide tour of more than 40 European, American and Canadian cities including high-profile music festivals such as the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago and Sasquatch Festival in Washington State.
Finally, they’re here in Manila. This won’t be your ordinary rave. So, come out. Put on your comfy dance shoes and let’s get lost in the beat.
