Discobelle-Mix-128

Few labels can claim the Motor City and Texas’ Dirty South HQ as it’s home turf. But, it might surprise you that Kolour LTD, a bastion of deep house and dusty disco goodness, can do just that. This imprint has been a staple around the Discobelle offices for years now and the time has finally come time to tap their main man, Mike W., for the next entry of exclusive mix series. If you consider the curation of Kolour LTD, I’m sure you can count that this mix we have here will be nothing but straight fire for you bedroom, disco dance parties. Expect nothing short of perfection and truck loads of upfront and unreleased goodies courtesy of one of the game’s nicest fellows.

Discobelle-Mix-129

Detroit native and all around, a-class lad, Pontchartrain (nee Dustin Alexander), dropped by the offices and left this lovely little mix for our exclusive series. The disco wunderkind blasted on to the scene with heavily lauded releases on Whiskey Disco, which he now co-runs with label founder, Sleazy McQueen. In Addition, Pontch has found recent success on WD sub-label, Lovedancing, as well as Kolour LTD and Detroit’s Rocksteady Disco. His brand of re-edit wizardly is earmarked with perfection and see’s him reimagining and reinforcing forgotten disco and funk tunes…updating them for modern dance floors.

We’ve featured Pontchartrain a several times here in the past and it’s great to finally add him to our arsenal of Discobelle Mix providers. Strap in and enjoy!

In life, sometimes the stars align to your favor that it’s hard to tell if this is reality or just an illusion. With the case of Frank Booker providing the latest installment of our exclusive mix series, it thankfully is the former. This kiwi beat-smith has positioned himself squarely in the top echelon of deep disco makers and has graced several of the communities top outlets such as Sleazy Beats (Recordings and Black Ops), Razor-N-Tape, Kolour LTD and Disco Deviance. He recently launched his own imprint, Down In The Basement, which should be seeing it’s third release later this week. Unfortunatley, the vinyl production world is far more fickle when it comes to celestial perfection, so we can only hope that the annual record store day pressing bottleneck doesn’t delay his next disc too long.

Below you’ll find his hour long mix

Obas Nenor has been picking up steam over the last several months with heavily lauded releases on Kenny Dixon Jr.’s Mahogani Music, Strictly Rhythm and Whiskey Disco (as one half of Rabo & Snob). Here, he’s welcomed into the fold at Detroit Swindle’s Heist Recordings with his “The Ceaper Buing EP” which get’s released early next week. Today, we premiere the exceptionally funky, “Glimpse Of Light”… a funked out, house stomper complete with acid synths and a hip-shaking bass line.

 

There’s something supremely unique and original about the entire EP… something we highly recommend you check out. Previews below, buy HERE.

“Nabu Network” is a colorful journey into the musical mind of Sorcerer (Daniel Saxon Judd). Soulful balearic tempos and tropical tones swim with sparkling guitars and uplifting melodies on this awesome pan-global journey from the disco to the rainforest. This exciting release is the first 12″ on Universal Cave Records and features some of the California artist’s strongest works to date. The EP is made up of three original Sorcerer jams and a Universal Cave remix. Sorcerer’s legacy continues to float on with “Nabu Network.”

Out today on Montreal imprint, Editorial Records, comes the latest 12″ from Closed Paradise… a french producer who burst on to the scene a few years back with exceptional outings on Fools & Fables, Kolour LTD and Whiskey Disco. The “Say Hello To My Mother” EP is comprised of four, deep burning tracks that see Closed Paradise do what he does best: craft exceptionally funky dance music from obscure and vintage sample sources. “Asymmetric” kicks things off with a dusty, bass groove and jazzy piano stabs as a roaring crowd cheers in the background. “Dice” leans on some cheeky horn riffs and 80’s inspired leads to create a hypnotic bounce as “Bad Girl” steals the show with it’s push-pull, side chained loveliness. Closer, “Filtered Light” is low slung and bottom heavy…just like we like it. Essential purchase right here!

Snag it!
