Disclosure, an electronic music duo saturated in disco synthpop, performed a DJ set at the Red Bull Sound Space at AMP Studios. The Red Bull Sound Space is a small, intimate venue in Los Angeles, where fans can only gain entry through winning tickets by calling the hit radio station, 106.7 KROQ. For fans lucky enough to score tickets, Disclosure performed a playlist of songs off their critically acclaimed album, Settle.

Nominated for Best Dance/Electronica Album at the 2014 Grammy Awards, Disclosure (the brainchild of brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence), made their first big commercial splash with the infectiously catchy single, Latch. The track has climbed to number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making this Disclosure's first Top 40 hit in the United States.

Latch features the angelic voice of British singer-songwriter, Sam Smith, which skyrocketed him to fame. After the success of the single, Smith released his debut album, In the Lonely Hour, on May 26th. The vocals on Latch create a melodic cohesion that perfectly accompany Disclosure's psychedelic beats.

Before the show began, avid fans lined up outside the venue, anxiously awaiting the arrival of Disclosure. Attendees were provided endless amounts of free Red Bull (one of the many perks of a small acoustic set) and KROQ gear to get them pumped for the show. Upon entry, people from different walks of life stampeded toward the stage, proving the wide range appeal that Disclosure has.

After an interactive Q&A with the audience, Disclosure began their set with the anthemic track, When A Fire Starts To Burn, that set the tone for the rest of the show . It was the catalyst to a wave of electronic contagion. Although the performance started in the early evening hours, the show packed the same punch and feel of an after-hours show. Regardless of where they perform, the experience of seeing a Disclosure show is similar to entering a bouncy castle: always fun and never boring.
