The Latest Disclosures: 4 Hot Newcomers Latching Onto Similar Soul-Infused Dance Music

The duo's soul-infused take on dance music is in the house, big-time, as these four hot newcomers are gaining fast by latching onto similar vibes.

Classixx

Think of Los Angeles' best dance duo as Disclosure's American cousin. Longtime friends and suburbanites Michael David and Tyler Blake deliver catchy hooks and high-octane grooves that are the perfect soundtrack for a late-night freeway joyride.

Darkside

New Yorkers Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington are psychedelic wonders whose live shows feature a deluge of fog machines, flashing lights and throbbing beats. The only thing missing from their trippy mix of jazz, hip-hop and house is a bong.

Duke Dumont

He topped the U.K. singles chart in 2013 with "Need U (100%)," which also snared a Grammy nomination for best dance recording. Like Disclosure, he draws from '90s garage, house and techno, but torques it into a familiar, finely tuned swing.

SBTRKT

Once-anonymous post-dubstep producer Aaron Jerome has already worked with Drake and influenced a half-generation of dance and hip-hop artists. Following a three-year hiatus, the mix master is back with a six-song instrumental EP - a teaser for a full-length out soon.
