Central Park Summerstage may have gotten its dance show of the summer last night when UK house/garage crossover duo Disclosure, abrasive trap duo TNGHT, and another house-y producer Julio Bashmore took over the stage for one funky night in the park.

Julio kicked things off bright and early at 6 PM, which isn’t really the appropriate time at all for his music (and unfortunately his set at Warm Up this Saturday will likely face the same problem), but it was a nice primer for what was to come, and I hope to be catching him in a dark club sooner than later.

Though still in the light, TNGHT fared much better, and it really seemed like as many people came to see them as Disclosure. Lunice spent at least half of their set acting as a hypeman, and rapping along to some of the verses they dropped, which included Rick Ross, Danny Brown, and best of all, the excellent “Blood On The Leaves,” which they helped produce for Kanye‘s Yeezus. Aside from playing the music of other rappers, the real treat came when TNGHT brought out legendary Queens rap duo Mobb Deep, who performed “Quiet Storm” and “Shook Ones.”

Then finally, once the sky fully blackened, Disclosure came on stage. These guys have come really far since their first trip to NYC less than a year ago, and from the reactions of the sold-out crowd, you’d know it in a second. It was all arms in the air, constant dancing, and singing every word to the big hits (“White Noise,” “You & Me”) as well as the slightly odder ones (“When A Fire Starts to Burn,” “F For You”) and the older cuts too (“Boiling,” “What’s In Your Head”). Like we thought they would, they brought out Jessie Ware to sing “Confess to Me” and “Running,” and Sam Smith for “Latch.” Excellent show, and a very excellent light show too, I should add.

After the show, Disclosure headed over to The Wall on W 30th St to DJ a sold-out afterparty. We missed that one, but it looks like it was pretty packed. Did you go? How was it?
