The Bowery Presents: Disclosure / TNGHT / Julio Bashmore
Tuesday, August 6, 2013
5:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
The British duo, Disclosure, consists of brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence (aged just 20 and 17 respectively). In a New York Times profile of Disclosure, the brothers talked about how “they arrived at their sound through pure reverse engineering, growing up listening to the generation of musicians making what could be broadly described as post-2-step, and then working their way backward.” Having racked up hundreds of thousands of Soundcloud plays with their remixes for Jessie Ware and Emeli Sande, the duo is currently working towards a much-anticipated debut album. With their debut EP Carnival / I Love That…You Know receiving over 50,000 downloads in over 150 countries to date, they have proved that their distinctively British style of music has true global appeal. Forget age limitations and lazy categorizations, Disclosure is simply the sound of electronic music – past, present, and future.
TNGHT is the sound of two of the very best new producers in the industry amplifying each other. Pooling their talents as TNGHT, they are helping to redefine the state of new pop, dance music and Hip-Hop in a wholly fresh fusion. Born of this A.D.D generation looking towards the internet but equally born of vinyl culture, sample chopping and digging, they have emerged to take the helm of Hip-Hop and Pop music.It might seem counterintuitive for a producer to detach themselves from one of the planet’s most thriving music scenes, but in the case of Julio Bashmore, that’s exactly what he did growing up in bass music hotbed. Julio may have appeared to burst on to the scene in late 2009, but the lead up to the Julio Bashmore EP was essentially a lifetime in the making. Julio’s interest in electronic music began in earnest after hearing Daft Punk’s “Da Funk”. By the time he was old enough to experience club culture firsthand, Julio had made the realization that DJing was the true vehicle in which to deliver his music.
