Disclosure make some White Noise at Apple Festival

DJ duo Disclosure brought their unique fusion of 90s house, garage and pop to the Apple Music Festival as they played to a crowded audience of dance fans.

Guy and Howard Lawrence opened at the Camden Roundhouse with their well-loved dance track White Noise, much to the excitement of enthusiastic revellers.

It also sees the release of the twosome's new album Caracal, which boasts collaborations with a whole host of A list names including Lorde, The Weeknd and Gregory Porter.

Guy Lawrence said: "Today is a very special day for us, not only do we get to play is amazing festival, but we released our album too."

He added later in the show: "We actually recorded most of this record up the road so it feels so good to be in London sharing it with you. It's amazing."

Up-and-coming artist NAO took to the stage to warm up the crowd prior to Disclosure. She later joined the DJs on stage for an energetic performance of their collaborative track Ego.

Hot on her heels was neo soul duo LION BABE, also known as vocalist Jillian Hervey and musician Lucas Goodman. Hervey got the crowd moving with her unique brand of soulful vocals, Looking every inch the sexy soul songstress in fishnet tights, a black embroidered leotard and a red kimono.

She also returned to the stage during Disclosure's set to perform their track Hourglass, one of Caracal's standout songs.

One artist who did not make an appearance on the Roundhouse stage was Sam Smith, who teamed up with the brothers to produce Latch, the track that launched both parties' fruitful careers.

Smith's no show didn't seem to bother the crowd. Returning to the stage for an encore performance, the twosome played the pop anthem to a cheering crowd.

The festival continues on Saturday with performances from Pharrell and Leon Bridges.
