 Disclosure, the 2step garridge revival, I read,  second coming of Artful Dodger supposedly

but this tune, number 2 in the UK pop charts at the moment, doesn't sound particularly 2steppy to me

can't hear much bump 'n' flex there...

still, definitely a 90s retro-dance vybe

track sounds weirdly compressed to me, frequency range scrunched, like it's been mixed to sound good through a phone

number 2, up 26 places in a week! even in its much-reduced present state, that's one thing you can still say for the UK chart: it does let in some out of left-field, up-from-below stuff, unlike Billboard which effectively screens out anything that hasn't got a huge machine behind it....

then again, number #1 on Billboard, and in the UK pop charts too , is Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" and that's self-released
