With nightlife on hold and clubs closed for the foreseeable future and live music entertainment on hold, Disclosure continues to create new experiences for their fans. The duo’s previous efforts included their Kitchen Mix parties, tutorials on Twitch, and partnering with Cercle for a memorable set DJ’ing from a cliff in Croatia. Now they reveal on the release day of their new album ENERGY, they’re inviting friends and fans to experience something in the digital realm of gaming. Joining forces with design collective Blockworks and in partnership with Island Records, they’ve developed an immersive meta-verse within gaming sensation Minecraft inspired by the vibrant world of their new record. In addition to virtual hidden clubs and scattering hidden songs around the map, Disclosure will soundtrack the experience with a megamix featuring material from ENERGY and classics from across their catalogue, offering fans a truly immersive way to experience this new chapter in their career. You can take a peek at the preview below.
Minecraft is one of the world’s most successful computer games averaging 126 million monthly active players. On ENERGY’s release date, August 28, fans will be able to join Disclosure’s dedicated server in the video game and discover a square mile of rolling hills, roiling streams, and dark caverns, all of which come together in a stunning mosaic to replicate ENERGY’s earthy cover art. Deep in the caves hidden under the land’s surface are three underground clubs inspired by iconic venues around the world, plus Guy Lawrence’s kitchen as seen in previous live streams. As players explore the realm made up of over 100 million blocks, they’ll have a chance to do some digital crate-digging, hunting for 13 hidden records including 8-bit reworks of some of the duo’s most-loved tracks.
The server will be live for a week, after which a version of the Minecraft map will be available for download for all to play. During that week, echoing the themes found on ENERGY the land will evolve and change—a feature meant to highlight environmental concerns like reforestation and ocean repopulation. Like the record—which features hip-house ragers like the Aminé and slowthai-featuring “My High” alongside sunnier, uplifting cuts like “Douha (Mali Mali)”—the Disclosure Minecraft server is meant to be diverse and full of life. .
