Ah, things have been a bit slow over here at Discobelle HQ. Lots of good music coming out but no energy to actually post. I started working on my thesis yesterday, BjÃ¶rn just got back from Hong Kong and besides going back to work he’s moved to a new apartment and Niklas is busy with his job along with spending quality time with his kid. Anyway, just to let you know we’re still around, here’s a goodie bag.
First off is a mixtape that Justice apparently gave out before their first UK dates, recorded live at The Rex Club in Paris on April 14th back in 2005 (Thanks to Nathan), second we’ve got another remix of our girl Cassie’s track “Me and you” done by french rapper Booba (thanks to Glamorama), third is another Justice related track: Crimp Yr Hair from Philly sent us their – a bit more club friendly – remix of “Phantom” and we dig it. To top it all off, another find from our boy Diplo on one his many trips around South America. Cumbia is folk music that originates from the northern part of Colombia, but has spread to Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Mexico etc. Apparently, this is all over the place and it’s also beginning to mutate into cumbia tracks influenced by electro, techno, hip hop, dancehall etc. This track was screwed and chopped into an eerie and haunting piece of music. It’s scary as hell. Enjoy!
