UK Trio Disciples Take The Decks For Beats 1's One Mix
Back in 2015, “How Deep Is Your Love” dominated the airwaves, being played out everywhere from festival stages to retail stores. Not to mention, it found massive success on charts all over the world.
Though most people are quick to credit Calvin Harris, the track was actually co-produced with Disciples. The UK trio - Duvall, Luke Mac and Gavin Kool - started working on the track in 2013. Calvin Harris found his way onto the record in 2014, bringing a radio friendly feel to it.
Disciples followed up the collab with The Following EP later in 2015, 3 great house music tracks. They released 2 songs earlier this year, “Jealousy” and “On My Mind,” both well-received.
This weekend, Disciples will be bringing a special, more underground style for Beats 1’s One Mix with music, they say, is “ close to us: real, underground, authentic house music!” Given their tastes, you might hear some tracks from producers like Josh Butler, Adam Shelton, The Mekanism, Chistian Burkhardt and Midland.
