UK electronic duo Disclosure has been inching closer to the world of hip hop over the last little while. The group toured with Chicago rapper and recent XXL Freshmen, Vic Mensa, who subsequently hopped on the remix of their single, "When A Fire Starts To Burn". He's also carried on the electronic influence on his latest cut, "Down On My Luck".
Disclosure also recently produced a track for Bishop Nehru, but they haven't stopped there. Today, the beatmakers unleash a rework of Pharrell's debut solo single, "Frontin'", and despite being only a minor hit at the time, has aged very gracefully.
The new take breathes new life into the single, quite faithfully modernizing the beat, while injecting a healthy amount of house into the cut.
Every time your name was brought up
I would act all nonchalant in front of an audience
Like if you was just another shorty
I put the naughty on
But uh, truth be told you threw me for a loop
I'm too old to be frontin' what I'm feeling
Denzelin', acting like you ain't appealing when you are
Stuntin' like you ain't my only girl
When you are (I was just fronting)
I'm ready to stop when you are
