The Discobelle Mix series continues and this time we turn our attention to our old friends in Swedish sound system Safari Sound that together with brilliant up and coming producer/dj Binnie Smalls did a smashing dancehall mix, expect dubplates, exclusive tracks and an all-around fun hour of awesome tunes.
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.
