Lupe Fuentes’ imprint, In The Loop, has long been a destination for quality, club tracks and formerly seen the likes of Kerri Chandler, Vanilla Ace and Todd Terry grace it’s releases. With an eye for such talent, it’s easy to see why the A&R department saw fit to bring Thailand-based producer, Juany Bravo, to the fold. With his full EP, “Don’t Fuel The Machine,” landing later this week, we’ve got a cheeky, upfront premiere of his tune, “Metele.”

Chalked full of chunky percussion layers  and latin flare, “Metele,” churns out a driving bottom end that is punctuated with tribal psychedelia and vintage, crowd-noise samples. Heavy stuff that is indeed aimed squarely at the dancefloor.

OOFT! is the boss man over at Foto Recordings and, although the output may be sparse these days, a new release is certainly something to be celebrated. Enter their latest missive: a lovely two track disc of acid tinged, disco joints. Taking the A-side is Glasgow based producer, ILO, nee` Oli Breidfjord. His offering reworks a well known Black Box hit into a shimmering club tool that is loaded with shuffling hats and epic pads. Clocking in at almost nine minutes, this one is sure to create the perfect tension to bring any appreciative dance floor to a euphoric crescendo. Keep your eyes peeled as it’s due to hit shelves any day now.

PRE-ORDER HERE.

“A Part Of 20” is the forthcoming LP from Spanish producer, Tuccillo. Here, we have the full premiere of “Raw Orchestra,” a bumping, retro-flavored house joint that features lush string samples and a relentless, shuffling groove. You may have come across Tuccillo in the past from his prolific outings on such institutions as 2020 Vision, Ovum or Get Physical but, it’s his own label, Unblock Music, that presents his latest efforts. Spread across two, 12″ discs and comprised of 8 tracks, “A Part Of 20” is a portrait of an artist that uniquely expresses his production prowess.

Available May 29th. PRE-ORDER.

Good For You Records label head, Kenny Summit, unleashes a beast of tune with his latest missive in the form of “Real Cute.” Featuring some heavy rhythms and vogue-inspired vocal snips, Kenny launches into the track with crunchy guitar stabs and a rumbling bass bounce that is sure to incite plenty of dance floors to jack.

Hot stuff available soon, keep your eyes on their Facebook page for announcements.

As they say, all good things must come to an end. As is the case with one of our favorites over here at DBHQ… Icelandic Disco Wizard, B.G. Baarregaard has opted to retire his tongue-twisting alias for new monikers and fresh pastures. Not giving up on music by any means, the producer merely wishes for a clean slate, which he’s receiving in more ways than one. With an emanate move back to his native homeland of Iceland… New beginnings are abound for the chap. We at Discobelle wish him the best in his new endeavors and are honored to host this farewell mix from B.G. Baarregaard!

The “Buskerud Blend” is a mega-mix of sorts that showcases B.G.’s work over the last 18 months whilst living in Buskerud County, Norway. Featuring reworks and original compositions released and unreleased, this is truly a blissful, “portrait of the artist” and a proper au revoir to this unique talent.

For this week’s Discobelle Mix, we do a little cross-blog action with a specially curated set from Jimbo James, the San Diego based impresario over at Music Is 4 Lovers. As cofounder of the heavily lauded party brand, Lovelife, and current editor-in-chief at Mi4L, James wears a multitude of hats as an industry leader on the West Coast. From booking international headliners such as Claptone or Thugfucker to scheduling assignments for his blog contributors, from hosting events in LA or Tijuana to performing at Playa Del Carmen’s BPM festival…yes, it’s hard to imagine James finding a moments rest.

Known for his classically inspired sense of curation, Neil selects a cross section of bizarro-disco, vintage house, balearic oddities and dance floor burners for his mix. Clocking in at just over 90 minutes, this one is sure to get you pumped and primed for the club. Get up!

 

Another week, another fabulously groovy, Discobelle mix! Clocking in at the #159 spot in our exclusive series, we have Costa Rican disco impresario, Napoleon. As head honcho of the Wonderful Times label, he’s showcased such artists as Luvelss, VinylAddicted, Hotmood, Buzz Compass and Martin Hayes. As a producer, the young latino has scored releases on such illustrious imprints as Kolour LTD, Editorial Records, Editor’s Kutz and Masterworks Music, to name a few.

Napoleon turns in a fantastic mix chalked full of groovy, cosmic sounds… a perfect soundtrack for the changing seasons.
