The awesome people over at Toronto based label Badlqqk drops their second “Rookies” compilation and it’s filled to the brink with booming music from fresh and exciting talent from various parts of the globe.

Here’s what Oggie James, blogger & Radio Humber personality had to say about the tracks featured on the compilation.

MAGNVM! – Oh Dear
Imagine Porky Pig taking you on a tour of some ancient ruins, ending with an alien abduction and outer space dance off.

Crowd Control – I House You
Straight from France, this unapologetic old school house track is a rollercoaster you’ll never want to get off.

La Touche Francaise – Do That House
From the dimly lit clubs of Lille, comes La Touche Francaise with a good old groove number. French touch indeed.

Weston & Teston vs. Marco Marz – Booty Bitches
Incomparable measurements emerge from the shadows, stalking its prey while bouncing rhythmically. Rather soothing.

FnKey & A.D.M. – Rad Town
An acid drizzle on a classic sample has this all Italian collab as flavourful as an authentic slice of pizza.

Vryko – They Try
Extremely intimidating, Vryko is not one to be trifled with; those that try suffer the wrath of his booming bass.

Cherriep – Party Starter
Schizophrenic sampling from Toronto’s Cherriep leads this twisted take on house to licentious levels. Frighteningly feverish.

Fibretalk & CVPELLV – Charlie (ft. Will Mills)
When the bottom drops out you’ll find yourself picking up your teeth with a broken arm, wondering what just happened.

Produser – Ritual
Sporting event atmosphere amidst whistles, chanting crowds, explosive engineering and pulsing, fever-pitch intensity.

So Durand – Buttdial
Buttdial sneaks up on you, capturing your consciousness with unparalleled drum design, sublime synths and samples.

New UK based label Strangelove heads out of the gate at breakneck speed March 3rd with their smashing inaugural release “A Little Weird EP” which comes from prolific SF-based producer, Anabatic Records founder, Dirtybird affiliate and Discobelle fam Worthy.

The title track is offered right here as a Discobelle exclusive premiere and it’s an hypnotic, acid bleeped out, bass filled techy monster that will leave clubs in shambles.

Montreal dance music star Tiga returns to the dancefloor and to Turbo Recordings with new single “Eye Luv U” (co-produced by Quinn of Paranoid London) which is his first new material since last years “Blondes Have More Fun” release.

“Eye Luv U” will be the first of a series of releases from Tiga on Turbo in 2017, including a fresh collaboration with Audion aka Matthew Dear.

“The title came to me while I was playing a pyramid that had been converted into a multi-purpose event space,” says the Canadian DJ/Producer. “The hieroglyphics over what is now the coat check made me imagine a world in which pictures could mean words and words could mean anything. The thing about wordplay is that it’s fascinating to conceive of different realities informed by different systems of meaning, and how each reality would invariably bend to vault me to the pinnacle of all possible worlds. It’s humbling, really.”

We here at Discobelle have been following Tiga’s career closely since we started 10 years ago and we’re super pleased to be able to premiere the remix from German producer/dj Butch who wins us over with his amazing “80s Warehouse Acid Remix”, that title pretty much gives away exactly what you’ll hear with hypnotic squelchy pads and bleeps.

Bawrut is an old friend of ours here at Discobelle, an Italian born producer/dj that nowadays calls Madrid home, a city where he’s started up his own label Silencio (which has already garnered attention of house music aficionados worldwide with a series of strong releases).

This exclusive mix for us here at Discobelle is a full on acidic/Chicago house assault filled with a spectacular groove and some serious tribal elements which will most likely have you forget all about Christmas and instead go search for a club where you can dance til you can’t stand up anymore.

PS. Bawrut’s new EP ” Rumba” was premiered by Boiler Room about two months ago and will be out on Ransom Note Rec end of January 2017. All the 3 tracks are included in the mixtape, check out the title track below.

Both London based producer/dj Hervé and KC Lights have been featured on Discobelle in the past. Hervé is about to release bass heavy, club thumping new single “My Love” which features Baltimore rapper Phizzals and is taken off his brilliant album “Hallucinated Surf” (released earlier this year via Skint Records).

The remix package for the single features this lovely remix by KC Lights who turns up with a glitchy house reworking.

For the avid reader of Discobelle, the name DJ Wool should be associated with superb dj sets (he’s a former DMC champion) and seriosuly bumping tracks on labels such as Top Billin, Plant Music, Discobelle Records etc. along with being a member of popular indie/dance duo The Glass. He’s also a maestro in the mixing/production room having worked with the likes of REM, Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries), Spoek Mathambo, Todd Terry, Far East Movement, Herbert Gronemeyer, Jagz Kooner, Howie B, Andy Rourke (The Smiths), Tittsworth and many more.

After spending time in New York and Berlin, Dublin born DJ Wool has relocated to Northern California where he’s working as an audio engineer and has also been hard at work in his studio with new album “A Life In Breaks” which will be released on October 21st via NYC label Dither Down.

This absolutely astounding and warm, organic sounding mix for us sees him exploring breaks, minimal and ambient AKA “Ambi-Rock” and it’s inspired by what made him start his music career back in the 90’s.
