Born in the Dominican Republic and more recently cut from the bubbling Los Angeles circuit, Jarina De Marco is more than ready to step up as leading lady. Produced by genre defying duo GTA, who the rising artist donned her vocal chops for on “True Romance,” latest solo moment “STFU” oozes the attitude and eccentric electronic energy we have come to expect from De Marco and newfound label mates Mad Decent. As an outspoken newcomer providing seriously powerful solo material, we can’t help but feel Jarina De Marco is an essential addition to the Mad Decent family.

That time of the week again and another fine edition of the Discobelle mix series.

This week sees two dope producers/dj’s from Sweden team up to form new super tag team – MRTN x DINERO (AKA Robert Dinero of Mash Up International fame and MRTN). On their debut mix they give us a fresh selection of all things dancehall, future house, moombahton, afrobeat and UK bass.

Watch out for dj dates/clubnights and more mixtapes coming from MRTN x DINERO later this fall!

We’re starting the weekend with a bang courtesy of this premiere of the seriously addictive “afro-tuga” (the combination of grime/kuduro/bashment/UK funky) remix by acclaimed Portuguese duo Octa Push of UK based outfit Afriquoi and their single track “Sare” (taken from the “Abobo Nation – Part 1 (Remixes)” release that is dropping on October 28th via Wormfood Records.
