In their short career, Disclosure have slapped their face outline logo upon the likes of Jessie Ware, Sam Smith, AlunaGeorge and London Grammar for big-ticket collaborations. Their latest victim, New York underground rapper Bishop Nehru, is their most unlikely collaborator yet. His new song "You Stressin" features production from the UK duo, and is now available to stream above.
Whether sampling Dilla on their debut album, or dedicating part of their BBC Radio One mix to him, Disclosure have made their love for the late producer no secret, but "You Stressin" marks their first true attempt at making hip hop beats. Sure enough, it feels like a Dilla joint, albeit with some modern bells and whistles thrown in.
Due to Disclosure's recent success, they could've chosen almost any rapper to collaborate with, but they chose a relatively unknown dude in Nehru. Personally, I think it's admirable that they're using their name recognition to give him an almost certain popularity boost, and it helps that he pretty much slays this beat. Nehru's got a very Joey Bada$$-esque flow -- wordy, filled with assonance and consonance, but somehow laid-back and cool. Keep him on your radar.
