Is there anything that the Anjuna crew release that ISN’T bliss? “Aba” is out now, the newest single from label mainstay Lane 8 and collaborator Kidnap Kid. The two have individually emerged as some of electronic music’s most exciting talents in recent years, carving out stellar reputations with their unique melodic approaches. “Aba” is deep house in its purest form and it’s the perfect song to get your week started off on the right foot. Grab “Aba” on Spotify.

Currently sitting buried under about a foot of snow in good ol’ NYC and NIGHTGALE‘s new release “For You” is serving as my saving grace. Reminiscent of those feel-good summer vibes, “For You” hits all the right chords with a succulent mix of instrumental mastery. Check it out!

Kauf – Pacify

Nov 21 2016
From Florida to LA, Ronald Kaufman’s ‘Kauf‘ project took shape after he self-released his first single in 2011 – “Relocate” and “When You’re Out.” Today, we’ve been graced with “Pacify,” an ambient, sneak peek into his forthcoming Regrowth LP slated for release in 2017.

Hauntingly beautiful remix from Jerry Folk as he puts a unique spin on Billie Eilish’s “Six Feet Under.” Folk is no stranger to the spotlight – the Oslo native and creative talent behind the megahit “To My Soul” seems to crank out hits on the whim but his newest remix is one for the soul.

Superb ambient sounding techno from Skymning (Stockholm based producer Erik Lagerholm) which has already received praise from the likes of Gidge and Johanna Knutsson, three track EP “Dvala” is his first release on Swedish label Waves/Longitudinalwaves.

“Step into hibernation, and give the space that surround you a warm welcome. Close your eyes and think about those places where you felt something, a feeling that fulfilled you, a feeling that lasted. As fantasies and memories become increasingly lucid, you feel your mind opening up. You are restarting. Recharging. Starting to power back up. At this point you’ve almost reached a state of dormancy, at this point you are ready to listen to Dvala.”

Burbank, California based producer w. baer has been working with the amazing record label Hush Hush for a while now, and they teamed up yet again to release an eerie, 5-track EP titled “Wait a minute…who am i here?” set for an October 28th release date.

The entire EP resonates hard with the darker themes that naturally begin to flow in as Fall and Winter slowly transition over, and the resulting project is perfectly dropped in time for Halloween. The project title was also inspired by the cult 1987 thriller b-movie The Stepfather, so the synth-heavy darker tones are embedded right into the foundation.

“The Shakes” is the track off the EP that we are premiering today. The eloquent seven and a half minute track is frightening, moving, and emotion evoking; the song itself is film-esque in it’s structure and narrative, and the result is one you need to hear for yourself.

Listen to the track below.

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.
