Jannis of the Jakarta Records imprint brings us another splendid and super funky mix of Arabic 70’s and 80’s music.

“In the last couple of months I had the privilege to be able to travel a lot for DJ gigs and in order to find Fadoul’s family (the fruits of this labour can be found here: habibifunkrecords.bandcamp.com/album/azmanah-salb). I spent some time in Morocco, Tunisia and Jordan. This mix is some of the music I found, a few trades are in there too. It’s quite a colorful range. Disco from Algeria and Morocco, a James Brown cover from Egypt, a modern soul meets reggae hybrid from Tunisia, a new Fadoul track that the internet doesn’t seem to know of yet and some other great bits and pieces. Come along to another journey to the funky side of the arab world…..”


Mesmerizing new track from Berlin producer David August that features Greek singer Sissi Rada.

“Last year I met Sissi Rada. She was singing in Greek and playing the harp when I first listened to her. I asked her to record something with me as I wanted to use her voice for my music. We sat down, I played the harmonies on my Prophet 5 and she would jam over it. Her first take is the take you’re listening to. Back then I was in my bedroom studio. We had noises from the street, roommates the next door, but the take captured the magic and the spontaneous moment of just doing music. I didn’t want to record it again.

Her lyrics are about the devastating political and financial situation in Greece and I tried – as much as I could do – to reflect that with my music.”


We’re pumped to welcome our friend and all around cool guy Daniel T aka Daniel Terndrup to this week’s exclusive Discobelle mix. A fixture of the LA dance scene for years, you may know Daniel as one half of Cosmic Kids, for his bi-weekly radio show on Dublab, or from his own imprint Distant Works. Earlier this year Terndrup released his debut EP Tetrachromat off Young Adults, which has been praised by the likes of Pitchfork and RA for it’s kaleidoscope of sounds and sun-drenched ascetic.

With tracks like Blackway’s “New Life” or “Arnold’s Theme” by Touch Sensitive, this mix creates a lush soundscape perfect for long drives along the coast with a lover or a friend. Check it and the tracklist down below.
