10. ”When a Fire Starts To Burn,” Disclosure
Let the kids keep their glittery eyeballs glued to axis-of-Ibiza EDM, with its brostep bass drops and phoned-in pop-star cameos. On the breakout single from their elemental debut, Settle, British brothers-slash-boy wonders Howard and Guy Lawrence (they’re 19 and 22, respectively) scrape dance music down to the bone, just a throbbing synth ripple of a beat with a hi-hat chaser and a straight-from-the-pulpit vocal sample: ”When a fire starts to burn, right, and it starts to spread/She gonna bring that attitude home.” It’s all so deliriously simple, it just might be genius — con fuego. —Leah Greenblatt
