Tomorrow, Disclosure will be bringing their international, branded series, WILD LIFE Festival to NYC at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens. In addition to its headliners, the all-ages show will feature performances from Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Mobb Deep, UK electronic duo, Dusky and Justin Jay.
In an exclusive statement from legendary hip-hop duo, Prodigy of Mobb Deep says, "We don't play shows in our borough of Queens often, so, for us, the opportunity of coming back to the hood with such a cool line up of international artists is priceless!"
Mobb Deep counterpart, Havoc adds, "It reminds us of how much we have grown from back when we started. We are excited that Disclosure made us a part of WILD LIFE NYC! They are a dope group and they are dope producers. It's going to be an amazing show!"
Dusky, also thrilled to be a part of the ongoing festival series, especially in New York, stated, "You'd be hard-pressed to find a city with a richer musical heritage than that of New York, and so much of it has had a direct influence on our own music. It's always an honor to play in the city. As you'd expect the New York crowd are clued up, open minded and passionate about electronic music too. We can't wait to be coming back for Wild Life. We've got lots of current material from our 17 Steps label to play, as well as our own productions from our forthcoming artist album Outer.
