Brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence are a garage-house duo called Disclosure. The siblings grew up in Surrey, England with an extensive background in music. They supported SBTRKT and Hot Chip on their 2012 tours. Their single "Latch" released in October, 2012 featuring vocalist Sam Smith reached number 11 on the UK Singles Chart. The duo released their first single "Offline Dexterity" on Moshi Moshi records in 2010, followed by another single “Carnival/I Love...That You Know” on indie label Transparent Records in 2011. Disclosure is known for creating a fusion between electronica and downbeat 2-step with a mixture of soulful garage, crazy synths and infectious vocals. The duo is almost impossible to ignore, with critics describing them as “future garage’s fountain of youth.” They’ve had massive support from the likes of SBTRKT, Mele and Annie Mac, with extensive plays on Radio One’s hottest shows including “In New DJ’s We Trust.” In January 2012 they released the single "Tenderly/Flow" picking up their first bulk of national radio support. In June 2012 they released their EP The Face on London/Berlin based label Greco-Roman, to critical acclaim. One of the most popular remixes created by the duo has been "Running" by Jessie Ware, popular during summer 2012. Disclosure performed at many festivals over that summer with Jessie Ware appearing on stage in many of them, including Ibiza and Bestival. Their debut studio album was released in early 2013. Disclosure was also voted for the Hot Ten for 2013 by BBC Radio 1xtra.
