Disclosure Covers Duke Dumont’s “Need U 100%”
The latest hype surrounding everyone’s new favorite UK garage duo Disclosure is probably only matched by their disco seniors – Daft Punk. That being said, the two brothers have arguably done just as much to the current dance music scene as Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories” has. Disclosure’s re-vamped versions of old school house rhythms has brought the genre into a pop oriented sphere, thus exposing new audiences to this scene we tend to call, “EDM.” Whether you like the direction dance music is headed or are scared for its popular reception, this latest cover by the brothers will have your pretentious ass grooving all day.
Making his own claim to the dance scene, Duke Dumont has been dropping deep tracks and made a thorough impression with his track “Need U 100%“. An instant classic and DJ favorite, this track was immediately remixed by countless dance music stars. We had to investigate the rumors that Disclosure and Sam Smith had covered this house favorite and were siked to learn that all rumors are true.
Today on Sara Cox’s BBC Radio 1 show Disclosure and Sam Smith performed their own rendition of this track and our good friends at Gotta Dance Dirty were kind enough to record the result. Enjoy.
