As London warms up for a memorable 2012, homegrown production duo Disclosure look set to drop the soundtrack of the summer. 'The Face EP' is the latest offering from brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence (aged just 20 and 17 respectively) who have already been playlisted by Radio 1, received enthusiastic co-signs from Pitchfork, FACT, Fader and The Guardian, toured the UK and Europe and supported SBTRKT on his UK tour. With its addictive sunshine sound, their latest EP looks set to compound Disclosure's growing reputation as the UK's most exciting – and uplifting – new producers.
Samo Sound Boy
Samo Sound Boy is a Los Angeles-based producer and DJ whose powerful live sets and original productions have brought him to the forefront of today's forward-minded club scene. Having earned his chops DJing at Fugees 99, a Nigerian-owned dancehall in the south end of Buenos Aires, Samo compounded influences picked up there with a love of crunk, club, and Chicago house. The result remains a uniquely rugged but soulful sound of his own. In addition to having released an array of highly acclaimed remixes and original material, Samo started his own label, Body High, with Jerome Potter in 2011. Furthermore, the two partnered together to produce a side project under the name DJ Dodger Stadium. Moving full speed ahead as a producer, DJ, and label head, Samo is only getting started spreading his club aesthetic that Chicago journalist Dave Quam described as: "Weird, banging, and beautiful. Like a shortwave radio recording of all the best stations at once."
