RNTR012---Fouk-B

At this point, Fouk hardly need an introduction. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 18 months, you’re sure to have come across there distinct brand of disco-laden, synth-injected deep house that has earned them appearances on Detroit Swindle’s Heist Recordings, Room With A View and House Of Disco. Here, they present an entire slab for Brooklyn’s Razor-N-Tape Reserve with their “Whiskey Ginger EP” and we have the honor of presenting “New Canvas” to you. Clocking in at just under 8 minutes and featuring a percussion heavy disco-stomp, this peak time bumper is sure to stir any dance floor in to a frenzy.

Available now, cop the 12″ vinyl HERE.

Summer vibes abound on this new EP from Glass Slipper, the deep, vocal-house duo comprised of Lisa Cork-Twiss and Bradley out of Austin, Texas. Entitled “All That” and available now on Bounce House Recordings, the title cut is a stomping, house number that perfectly frames Cork-Twiss’ gentle coos. Also available in “Underground Mix” form, we get a deeper expression more aptly suited for dimly lit, dusty warehouse dancing. On the B-Side action, “You Got It Boy” hits that throwback, nostalgia-tinged house vibe squarely on the nose with impeccable aim while “Ain’t Nothin’ To It But To Do It” is geared more towards your peak-time needs. EP closer, “Change” is a downtempo, lounge affair that’s sure to get anyones mood hot and sticky

Keep an eye on this duo as they have been climbing the charts recently with previous releases on Oh So Coy Recordings and Whiskey Pickle Records. Cop the EP exclusively on Traxsource and peep their video for “All That” below.

The Kolour LTD family are synonymous with quality, disco infused deep house. It should be no surprise then that their latest endeavor, Kolour LTD 10’s, continues this tradition in fine fashion. The second slab in their series of 10″ vinyl releases is what we have on show here and it comes from a mysterious producer known as Jonny Conga. Very little aires are put on here as Mr. Conga presents two cuts simply titled “Edit 001” and “Edit 002″… both are aimed squarely at the dance floor and feature chunky rhythms, exquisite sampling and bouncy vibes.

Both current volume’s of LTD 10’s are available here…keep your eyes peeled for vol. 3 which sees the inimitable M.ono & Luvless at the helm!

Dave Allison is a man of many hats. A producer (known as Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee), a label head (he owns and operates Editorial Records and Kinjo Music), an international DJ and a father (his little daughter is just cute as a button). We’re very fortunate he took a moment out of his stacked schedule to provide this tasty little mix for our exclusive series. With well over 20 years experience behind the decks, and a indisputable ear for signing exceptional tracks and talent, we can certainly expect that the next 60 minutes here are gonna be something special.

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!

Discobelle-Mix-127

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
