It's now been almost three years since Disclosure's "Latch" dropped and was subsequently remixed by everyone from Schoolboy Q to PARTYNEXTDOOR. Their 2013 debut album, Settle, was a huge success both in their native UK and the US, and now they're ready to start rolling out the next one. Here's the absolutely infectious new single "Bang That."
Before you comment "This isn't hip hop," give it a listen and tell me this wouldn't go off in any club, no matter the clientele or scene. A four-on-the-floor banger propelled by ghettotech-style vocals, "Bang That" is punctuated by unique rhythmic flourishes and non-cliched buildups.
And, after all, this song does mention the word "twerk," so it's at least tangentially related to hip hop.
Bang that 'til you pass out
Shake that 'til you pass out
Freak that 'til you pass out
Work that 'til you pass out
