Gothenburg electropop quartet Little Dragon is an unlikely choice as remixers of The Internet track “Cocaine” but they decide to transform from a slow r’n’b soaked love affair into a chopped up, faster tune that skips ahead with the help of a steady beat and bleeping melody.
Danish dj Christian d’Or is the reigning disco champ over in Copenhagen and his new thumping, lingering on a steady 120 bpm “Disco Dick d’Or” mixtape is filled with sleazy disco that was tailormade for being played in small dungeonlike cellar clubs in order for the packed dancefloor lose their minds, clothes etc. (Via Artrebels)

Mike Skinner is known under The Streets moniker and is responsible for some of the most seminal British records during the 00’s. He retired The Streets last year and since then he’s been working and making beats as one half of duo The D.O.T., a project together with Rob Harvey. But he’s also made this Fact Magazine mix tahtw e’ve been enjoying today at the Discobelle office.
“And so we have his FACT mix. We’ve never seen Skinner DJ, but it’s no surprise that he’s good at it: the mixing’s swift and tight, and as you might expect, he rolls through a selection of house and garage before indulging in some newer cuts from TRC, Joy Orbison, Julio Bashmore and Joker, and naturally, closing on jungle.”
