Fusing their signature nu-disco melodies with layers of wind instruments and other subtle samples combined with the smooth Bieber vocals, this remix really becomes something special. No sign of a release date or download but enjoy the stream below.

It’s been five months since we last got a taste of new Disclosure when they released their collaboration with Mary J. Blige. Hard At Work on their next album, today the boys took some time to premiere a brand new track on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show titled “Bang That”. Using a sample from 313 Bass Mechanic’s “Pass Out”, "Bang That" has a slightly more minimal tech house feel to it than what they usually release, something you’d hear them play at an early morning after party somewhere. Note that this is not an official single off the new album, but something to hold everyone over as we keep waiting for their follow up to their previous album Settle. Stream the record below or purchase on iTunes later today
