The new collaboration from Disclosure, Aminé and Slowthai well and truly lives up to the hype.
Disclosure's (Howard and Guy Lawrence) forthcoming new album, ENERGY, is quickly becoming one of this year's most eagerly anticipated dance records. From the infectiously joyous title track which dropped a few weeks ago now, to the string of singles we were gifted from the brothers to kick off the year including 'Ecstasy' and 'Tondo', it's been a great time to be a Disclosure fan. Now, they take things one step further, releasing one of their most hyped collaborations yet titled 'My High'.
Tapping none other than both slowthai and Aminé for this song, 'My High' is so chaotic in all the right ways. It's an all out banger, an assault on the auditory senses and one of the funnest releases we've heard this year. From Aminé's expert bars kicking things off very nicely through to slowthai's own show-stealing offering, the pair go toe to toe over a frenetic, propulsive beat from Disclosure. Throw in some absolutely bonkers visuals, and you have an undeniable winner.
Speaking of the collaboration, Disclosure said, “We always wanted to work with rappers, we just didn’t know any and we had no means of contacting them… there aren’t a lot of rappers in Reigate."
“Writing ‘My High’ with Aminé was a lot a fun, he’s hilarious and may as well be a comedian. He writes so quickly and it’s amazing to watch. He brought so much energy to this already very energetic tune that when we got home to London in January, there was only one guy capable of matching it… Slowthai.”
