Disclosure made quite the splash last week with the ingenious roll out of their “Never Enough” EP. All five of the new songs remain in heavy rotation.  

Also making strong KCRW chart debuts are U.K. based R&B maven Cleo Sol, and the team over at label Italians Do It Better with their Madonna tribute compilation, released just in time for our favorite material girl’s 63rd birthday. Closing out our list this week is rising Global Beat Australia alum Hector Morlet. Remember that name so you can score your cool points once he becomes a household name.
