SaugaroDesertWeekender

We’re heading to the desert this weekend, are you coming too? That’s right, Coachella is upon us and even if you weren’t able to snag a ticket to the festival there’s still plenty of magic happening outside of those polo grounds. Our favorite pick is The Saguaro Desert Weekender taking place at one of our favorite hotels in the whole wide world. Check up the lineup for the 3 day extravaganza along with a nice little mix from The Knocks to set the mood. You can RSVP at http://thesaguarodesertweekender.com/.

FOOD FOR THOTS

This week’s exclusive Discobelle mix comes from none other than LA duo Bixel Boys, you all saw this coming right? We’ve been all about these boys since they first come on to the scene with their remixes of Janet Jackson and Ciara. Since then they’ve gone on to release original work on labels such as Sweat It Out! and Nervous and they show no signs of slowing down.

The mix is appropriately titled “Food for Thots” and this is what the two of them had to say about it.

“dance music into love music vibes haha :: a little cool down after sxsw

luv u guys!”

The feeling is mutual.

The Bixel Boys are obviously a favorite of ours over here. Their sound has claimed many different names from “big-room underground” to “booty rave house”, but their newest remix takes on a whole new direction and trust us when we say this one is special. You could call their take on The Crystal Method’s “Over It” something along the lines of ”dreamy synth house” but this song doesn’t so much reflect a new genre but a feeling instead.  A slow-building bassline, stabs of progressive chords and Dia Frampton’s angelic vocals create a euphoric feeling. You’ll find yourself getting lost between the beginning and the end, and then pressing repeat once it’s all over.This one is for those late night drives with the person you love.

Mighty Mouse is one of those extremely underrated artists that you listen to and think, “Wait, does  anyone else hear this? Oh my god this is amazing. WHY AREN’T YOU ALL FREAKING OUT ABOUT THIS DUDE?”. Bringing a fresh take on dance music the mouse constantly surprises me with every new production he releases. His latest EP “Space Face/Shaker Faker” is a bit of a new direction for the Londoner. The addition of extended piano buildups creates a more mature and refined take on his normally soulful and funky productions. The first single “Shaker Faker” is out and available for free download. Also make sure to check out Mighty Mouse’s upcoming tour dates down below.

No website, no Soundcloud, not even a real name can be linked to this new mashup that’s been spreading like wildfire across the internet these past couple days. The track “Moves Like Ms. Jackson” is a medley of some of Outkast’s greatest hits including “The Way You Move,” “The Whole World,” “Ms. Jackson,” and “So Fresh, So Clean” over a bassline of punchy synths and a post-dub beat. No word on who is behind this tune just yet, but for now let’s hold off on the speculation and just press play.

The Bixel Boys first release of 2014 takes Eliza Doolittle’s “Walking on Water”  and turns it into an danceable house track with a thundering bassline, intricate chord work and to top it all off an incredibly sleek production quality. When it comes to these two it’s best to expect the unexpected, proving time and time again that they can’t be pigeonholed into one single sound or style. You can download the tune for free below.
