Disclosure: “DJ-Kicks”

-

ELECTRONIC A decade ago, Disclosure, the London house-music duo of the siblings Howard and Guy Lawrence, helped put the dance-music spotlight back on a heavily syncopated U.K.garage sound. The brothers’ mix for the “DJKicks” series is swathed in the darting, burbling bass lines and the clipped, skipping snares and hi-hats that mark that subgenre, but most of the tracks have a lounge-ready polish that tempers the style’s earlier youthful exuberance. One of Disclosure’s own tracks—titled, appropriat­ely, “Squelch”—is a piece of spry minimalism, and the insoucianc­e on offer has a generally mature hue.—Michaelang­elo Matos
