WHAT IT IS: “They were offering something different in the electronic house space that was dominated by DJs with features. They came with their own unique blend of R&B-infused deep house. They write, produce and perform their own tracks. They’ve managed to continuously deliver big underground records as well as radio records— something that is rare,” explains Parlophone Chairman Miles Leonard. Disciples are currently in L.A., finishing up forthcoming radio singles. They’re building a strong brand on the back of a global smash with Calvin Harris, “How Deep Is Your Love,” and have received great radio support for the follow-up singles. Their popularity around the world is evidenced by their 4.8m monthly Spotify listeners and huge 485m Spotify streams (across all of their songs). Disciples are managed by Phil Sales, Maria Lane, Amy Wheatley (Three Six Zero).
