Disclosure have said that they would like to work with Kendrick Lamar in the future.

Yesterday (August 15), the dance duo – comprised of siblings Guy and Howard Lawrence – took part in a Q&A session with fans on NME's Twitter feed. Asked if there were any US singers they would be interested in collaboration with, the pair replied: "Definitely! Stuff we're working on is secret, but we're listening to lots of Kendrick."

The brothers also revealed that they were fond of Peace's cover of their track 'White Noise' as it took the song to a "different place" and that, if they could choose any artist to remix their own work, it would be either US producer J Dilla or Flying Lotus. When asked which of them would win in a fight, meanwhile, they both insisted they were "equally powerful". You can read the results of the Q&A session by visiting NME.com/blogs.

Kendrick Lamar hit the headlines this week after his verse on the Big Sean track 'Control (HOF)' was released online. The rapper called out a number of hip-hop competitors including A$AP Rocky and Drake in the track, prompting a furious range of responses on Twitter. He also made fun of Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan, which garnered a scathing retort from her father.

Disclosure, meanwhile, have defended themselves against accusations of selling out. Speaking to NME in a new interview in this week's issue, available digitally and on newsstands now, Guy Lawrence disputes the charge and states: "We haven't sold out. If you take all the vocals off our tunes, it's still underground music. There's something weird about how songs are classified as 'commercial' or 'mainstream' these days. For us, we don't give a fuck. You can call it mainstream or you can call it super-future-mooncore-tech-garage. I just call it dance music. "

You can watch Disclosure, cover stars of this week's issue of NME, talk about the state of dance music after their Number One album, why dubstep is in crisis, and their next direction here.
