Disclosure debut album to be released March/April 2013

The debut album from Disclosure will be released in March or April of 2013.

Speaking to Mixmag, the band confirmed that they’d be taking time out at the start of next year to complete the LP, due for a springtime release.

One half of Disclosure, Guy Lawrence, said: “We’ve been having a lot of sessions with different vocalists over the last couple of months. We’re writing our own instrumental tracks, Howard’s been singing on some of the songs. We’ve left time in February and March to do some writing. It’s been going really well.”

He also confirmed that the LP would consist of the garage/house sound that has been Disclosure’s speciality so far, adding: “It’s basically going to be what our sound has already been like. Our last EP is a good indication of what the album is going to consist of. It’ll be a similar vibe. We want to make sure there’s a good balance of club tunes and vocal tunes.”

Summadayze 2013 set times announced

If you’re set to welcome 2013 at a Summadayze near you, the set times have now been revealed so you can start planning. Future Entertainment’s New Year’s institution Summadayze has come a long way since its early days as a small-scale Melbourne kick-on. While the hometown festival remains the flagship Summadayze event on New Year’s Day, it has grown into a multi-stage spectacle at Sidney Myer Music Bowl. Melbourne’s main event is now also surrounded by festival stops in Adelaide, Perth and the Gold Coast for Summafieldayze.

“Summadayze is genuinely about a New Year’s celebration – delivering a great party that’s definitely centred on dance music,” Future’s director Brett Robinson told inthemix this week. “Summadayze, musically, is pretty fun, hands in the air and accessible to our core demographic. Over the years, Australia has developed the vibe for being the place to be in summer, especially for those in freezing cold Europe. They come from a white Christmas to the beautiful sunshine here!”

In 2013 the roll-call of acts runs deep. At the top of the bill sits the blockbuster names: the Chemical Brothers in a rare DJ performance with a custom-designed show, live renegade M.I.A., big-room hero Fedde Le Grand and 2012 success stories Knife Party, returning after a blistering tour with Future Music Festival in March. Then there’s Mark Ronson with some of his prodigious friends, Booka Shade showcasing a new live show and Summadayze pro Eddie Halliwell.

Then there are live acts with buzz-to-burn like Disclosure and Breakbot, celebrated DJs Maya Jane Coles, Scuba, Erol Alkan, John 00 Fleming and Hudson Mohawke, an iconic performance from Carl Craig under his 69 alias, and much more.
