The Disciples set out on their first UK tour: Review
The Disciples became a name of everyone’s lips last year with their collaboration with Calvin Harris being one of hottest tracks of the year. Taking to the road, they decided to start the tour in the U.K.’s Second biggest city of Birmingham at Rainbow and Lilith Hunt-Sheppard was there for the opening night.
The Rainbow in Birmingham never fails in bringing you a good night. As we entered the pub, the air was buzzing with people wanting to see the Disciples. It was the start of our Easter weekend and after a crazy busy day, grabbed a much needed drink before heading to the back room.
The night had not long started and there were already plenty of excited revellers there as we made our way in. With a mixed aged crowd is was clear to see that everyone had one thing in common. A love of dance music.
The four hour event saw the Disciples being supported by Icarus and Unorthodox, both of which got the crowd really dancing before the main act. I haven’t seen the Disciples before and so didn’t quite know what to expect but must admit, the London based trio went down a treat. With a combination of using an MC and mixing on the decks the futuristic electro sound has something for most music fans. The beat is infectious fused with a prominent snare and has an almost retro feel to it reminding me of the naughty nineties.
Their energy was contagious and it was clear that the cheering crowd were loving every minute of them. It is a six date tour and definitely one to go and see. They are also playing at several festivals and night in Ibiza too, so there are plenty of opportunities to see them.
