Damn David.. back at it again with the fuego pop music. I promised myself I’d take a break from the addictive vocals and succulent rhythms presented in masterfully crafted songs such as these, but who am I kidding? Violet Days‘ “Suck At Love” resonated with me on so many levels. The Swedish vocalist never disappoints.

Yes, yes kiddies…it’s that time of the week were we unleashing fresh sounds and fresh beats with our latest outing in the fast lane of global premieres (echo, echo, echo, echo)! This tasty installment comes courtesy of fresh-faced French producer, Ethyène and our friends over at the Kolour LTD imprint. The young, Lyon-based fellow has been a rising talent on our radar with a serious list of accolades already attributed to his alias. Ethyène caught my attention when he dropped his debut release, the “Obsessions EP” which also launched the Australian imprint, Kyoku Records. With his third solo release on the horizon, the “Clubs, Rubs + Dubs EP” for Kolour LTD, plus contributions to the burgeoning Moonrise Hill Material, which he co-runs, we can expect nothing but good things in the future. Now, to get to the track!

“Time Won’t Change” is a funky, mid-tempo groover that features lovely, organic percussion and shimmering sample/filter work. The hip-shaking claps introduce visions of Soul Train dance floors and feel good party vibes. A tickling bass line carries us forward while a cheeky appropriation of an SOS Band vocal creates a catchy refrain. Dropping later this week, February 24th, keep them peepers peeled and pre-order below.

Detroit-born but now Brooklyn-based rapper Bberlay (nee Bryanna Berlay) draws inspiration from the likes of Kreayshawn and Amanda Blank, club music and unusual electronic rhythms.

We here at Discobelle can premiere “BRASSY”, her first single and eye-popping music video debut on which we get a nonchalant rap style over a minimalistic, b-more handclap infused banger produced by Baltimore legend Mighty Mark. She’s also gearing up for the release of a full-length mixtape which is sure to turn heads.

New York City brother/sister duo Paperwhite examine our conscious existence in their track “Human Nature”. Transcendent synths and soaring, spirited melodies benchmark the song while the lyrics dive deeper. “No matter how much we may fight it, we are flawed, we are strong and we are in this together. We are human.”
