SESAC’s Disclosure Is Changing the Game
With a recent Billboard cover to its credit, sibling duo Disclosure is reigning on the Dance charts. Their CD, Settle, and single, “Latch,” both landed in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Dance/Electronics charts for album, song and digital songs. These days, the brothers continue their chart-topping work with the likes of Sam Smith, Mary J. Blige, and others, while touring across the world to Australia, the U.K., Spain, France, Belgium, Croatia and throughout the U.S.
For a while it seemed like the chain-of-command in Britain’s dance establishment was forever set in stone. The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx and Fatboy Slim would headline festivals from now until the end of days. The only way a new UK dance act could reach millions of people was to get a song on Masterchef.
But in less than a year, Disclosure has turned all that on its head. The most successful British dance act in a generation, they’ve not only soared to the top of the charts and sold out venues across the world – they’ve also changed the nature of British pop, opening the door for underground dance acts to flood the mainstream. All this from a couple of brothers that only just finished school. The eldest, Guy, is 21. The youngest, Howard, is just 18.
