Disclosure Defend Wembley Performance



Riding high at number one in the album charts with a critically acclaimed album and earning rave reviews from their fans for a series of live performances at festivals this summer you’d think all would be well in the Disclosure camp but  the duo have felt that they had to respond to accusations that they mimed their set at the Capital Summer Ball last weekend.

As the above photo taken at the event and then posted on the I Love Bass Music facebook group the duo were’t playing live as evidenced by the fact their equipment wasn’t even plugged in. The South London pairing have now responded to angry internet chatter with a statement detailing that the events organisers had forced them to play with a live backing track and so they had decided to not even try to look like they were mixing tracks live as evidenced by them not even bothering to wear headphones. We’ve seen what a plugged in and properly set up Disclosure perform like and can assure you they can play live and mix so for us the real shame here is that those in attendance last weekend were robbed of a what should have been a far superior show.

Check out the full statement on page 2.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
