“Konfetti” is the stellar sounding debut single of Southern Sweden artist Nor. and it dropped today via Norwegian powerhouse Nora Collective.

Nor. draws inspiration ranging from classic soul artists such as Sam Cooke, to Bob Marley, via 90’s r’n’b such as Boyz II Men to a more updated sound of 2017 hip hop/r’n’b courtesy of producer Kastel.

“Lost In The Moment” is the first single from Darius’s debut album “Utopia”, out in Decberem on Savoir Faire’s new imprint Animal63. In the tradition of Alex Braxe and Fred Falke, filters are laid down on a slow-paced boogie rhythm. Like a melancholy mantra, a looped vocal sample repeats the title and perfectly captures the essence of the album: plaintive and poignant, lead by a kind of tear-filled joy.

Lithuanian project Roe Deers is comprised of Liudas and Oskaras, two close friends who have released on the likes of Magic Feet, Omnidisc and Nein Records. Their new release is entitled “Fade Away” and will be released by French label La Belle Records on October 6th.

Vocals on the EP comes from Berlin-based Curses, who you all should know as the dark and romantic moniker of New Yorker Luca Venezia who mixes italo, electronic music and rock and roll into thrilling new sounds.

We can premiere the B-side track “To the End” which is a wild ride of clever effects, metallic hits and wobbly bass to create a dark and energetic stomper.

Australian producer/dj Husky is back with huge new single “Secrets” (to be released on Oct 6th via Bobbin Head Music) featuring his friend and vocalist powerhouse Shyam P. The pair have worked on “Secrets” for quite some time now, and the single release contains two original versions to fully showcase Shyam’s amazing vocals.

On remix duty (and featured as a Discobelle premiere) we find Melbourne based disco enthusiasts in Yasumo, they turned out a vibey, funked up discoish monster with all the right moves.
