When a fire starts to burn, right?, and it starts to spread, it takes over everything. That’s what happening with the Lawrence brothers of Disclosure, whose irresistible EDM is smitten with early house music while yielding to pop and R&B structures. Everything on the British duo’s wildly celebrated (and Grammy-nominated) ‘Settle’ leaps out of the speakers, folding experimental impulses into pithy collages. Guy and Howard Lawrence grew up in Surrey, making music and producing tracks rather than DJing – not the normal trajectory for young EDM artists. Taken with seminal acts such as Basement Jaxx, Groove Armada, and Joy Orbison, they bring a soulful trance vibe to their rapidly-growing audience, and also have a knack for choosing instantly memorable voices like Eliza Doolittle, Mary J. Blige, and Sam Smith to move their songs forward. They’ve impressed festival audiences from Glastonbury to Coachella, and they start the summer of 2014 on tour in the U.S., ready to drive more audiences towards dance ecstasy.

VEVO’S LIFT program began in January of 2011 as a way of celebrating new talent. VEVO prides itself on introducing emerging artists to a broader audience, and each LIFT cycle spends an extended period of time painting a detailed portrait of its act so potential listeners will get a fuller immersion into the artist’s musical impact and cultural breadth. Through exclusive interviews, behind-the scenes footage, video premieres, and intimate live shows - all exclusive to the VEVO platform - we unite the artist and the audience.
