The Mechanism

Album: Single Release Only (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This is an underground dance collaboration with Liverpool-based producer Friend Within.

    "Friend Within supported us on tour, he's a really good DJ, he's from Liverpool," explained Disclosure's Guy Lawrence to Radio.com. "We just spoke about making some music someday. Like a clubby type of thing, nothing too commercial. We didn't want to have any vocalists on it or anything. A track like his, basically, but with us as well."

    "He came down to the studio and we smashed it out in one day. It was really good fun. He's just a lovely guy. Hopefully it will get him a load of bookings as well."
  • The animated music video features the inner workings of a factory-like machine set to the track's House music beat.
