As the statement-making opening track on their recent album ENERGY, Disclosure's "Watch Your Step" sought to bring listeners to their feet, a position they were likely to remain in for the duration of the album. With their latest offering, a VIP remix of the disco-infused track featuring Kelis, the UK house powerhouse duo has taken the track into unexpected territory.
With a drum cadence more closely related to breakbeat than house, the duo's appetite to experiment becomes instantly apparent. Disclosure brings in some filter-driven flare to the mix with colorful, crescendoing lead chords that add a certain futuristic quality to the song's original disco elements. The duo spices things up rhythmically with a souped-up bassline that phases with an almost elastic quality.
