Highlights: Disclosure @ The Brooklyn Mirage

Disclosure’s moonlit DJ set was their first show in Brooklyn since the end of 2016.

On Saturday, world-famous DJ/Production duo Disclosure made its way to Brooklyn Mirage on their latest US Tour. The duo, made of UK brothers Guy Lawrence and Howard Lawrence, have been gracing listeners ears over the last decade with hits like “Latch” and “Omen” with Sam Smith, “Magnets” with Lorde, and most recently “Talk” with Khalid.

Despite Saturday night’s event being a DJ Set rather than a Disclosure “live show,” fans sold out Mirage far in advance to catch an extremely rare taste of Disclosure, who last played in Brooklyn at a secret New Year’s Eve show at the end of 2016. 

Disclosure’s DIY aesthetic and visuals complemented their music throughout the night, using the outdoor Brooklyn Mirage and a cloudy, moonlit night sky as their canvas. It felt right that the show was at Avant Gardner’s outdoor Mirage venue, as it would’ve been a shame to waste the night indoors. The venue’s extensive track lighting and impressive stage lighting array backlit the booth and screens behind them, while also having plenty of strobes and scanners that made the experience immersive.

Disclosure kicked off the set flexing their house roots with lead single “When A Fire Starts To Burn,” off of Settle, followed by the even groovier “F For You,” and then switched it up with their jazzy 2018 single “Ultimatum.” At that early moment, fans realized quickly that they’d still be getting the full Disclosure experience after all, not some watered down set that would feature a slew of outside tracks. Guy and Howard mixed songs from their albums Settle and Caracal, as well as newer music from their latest Moonlight EP, like “Where Angels Fear to Tread,” “Moonlight,” and “Funky Sensation,” spread throughout.

Late in the set, many fans finally received what they’d anxiously waited to hear, in the form of Disclosure’s biggest hits. In a short span of about six songs, the duo rattled off their VIP remix of “Talk,” “Latch,” “Omen,” and the Flume Remix of “You & Me” to wrap up the night with a bow on top. 

Overall, the house-centric night was a blast, and Disclosure’s tasteful setlist made for a show full of variety and changes in pace, keeping things interesting into the early morning hours. 

If Disclosure is coming to your city on their US Tour, snatch up tickets ASAP and get to a show – you never know the next time Disclosure will be back. Their non-agressive, house-filled set is one that dance enthusiast can enjoy, novice or expert.
