Two of the top bass music producers josh pan and AWAY recently came together to create an industrial trap anthem entitled ‘Mask’. The haunting vocals ride over a crunchy soundscape creating a dark feeling, seemingly inspired by the likes of Radiohead. The release comes to us from the Skrillex imprint OWSLA, a landmark release for both producers.

Combining industrial techno with deep house and thunderous bass, Canadian producer Kermode returns with “Sideways” ft. Eagle Child– the sophomore single to his forthcoming Retro Ghost EPPioneering a new sound of dance music, Kermode’s delivery is inky, cryptic, and sharp. “Sideways” is a gutsy joint, equal parts aggressive and approachable. Boasting layers of influence, the single yields an unfettered inspiration of its own. With this quintessential party anthem, Kermode is laying an extraordinary foundation for the full unveiling of the EP. Retro Ghost is set to be delivered Friday, November 30.

“I don’t hold anything back, forward thinking sound design, meticulous glitches, catchy hooks, and infectious rhythms.” – Kermode

We go way back with Dave Nada and Tittsworth and they’ve both been staples here at Discobelle HQ with a steadfast stream of quality releases throughout the last decade, this of course means that we’re extra delighted to be able to share their brand new collaboration track “Slo Ur Roll”, a dark and moody and absolutely stellar club track with a mid track tempo change.

The track is taken from Los Angeles based label Understated Recordings’ debut compilation release “All of U|S, VOL / 001” which is released tomorrow November 9th, the compilation features various flavours of house and tech-house from the likes of LA Riots, Lupe Fuentes, Anakim, Modus, Grensta, 28mm, Thomas Garcia, Nonfiction, Roy Wilkins, Missy B Joluca, WhereIsFenix, Lok N Key, Michael Fam, and Ucros.

“Dave and I have been hard at work preparing for the launch of our label, Hermanito. As a result we were introduced to Andrew via Create/Label Engine, where we became fans of Understated. From there I started work on this song specifically for the label. It i came together pretty quickly and Dave’s well known tendency to cut tempo came through once again (but maybe the song is also about aging ravers) haha? Excited to be a part of Understated fam and had a blast at my first event recently– really dope downtown warehouse party vibes. Even semi-effectively slowed my roll that night– made it in before sunrise!” – Tittsworth

Riddim might not be my favorite genre but it’s interesting to see how “traditional” celebrities express their creativity through differing mediums. Dani Thorne’s DJ moniker is COM3T, a high-flying, explosive energy driven force that most recently stunned the masses at Lost Lands. Her new single “Metamorphosis” hits hard, both in sound and in the feels. Bass aplenty and a message of staying the course shine bright as COM3T continues her ascension into modern DJ lore.

Volt may be one of the hottest bass producers on the rise at the moment. His insane sound design sets him above the rest. He has given us an incredible visual compliment to his latest single “Cut Me.”

 

The man, the myth, the legend known as Teki Latex should be well known to everyone who’s into forward thinking club music. Since his involvement with acclaimed French rap group TTC, he’s emerged as one of the most prolific dj’s/producers out of Paris.

A while back he turned his focus to dj’ing with the purpose of giving every mixtape the same attention that a recording artist would give to an EP/album and hoping that people treat them, listen to them and react to them the same way as they would an album. His recent, mind-bending and boundary pushing “King Of Blends” mixtape trilogy focused on giving iconic pop tracks and classic underground tunes a new context by layering them with more modern and obscure tracks. The mixtape trilogy was lauded with praise.

His absolutely fantastic new mixtape “The Tardigrade’s Lament” is a simpler affair that doesn’t deal with a specific concept or being filled with spectacular blends but instead it’s designed to reflect the vibe of his recent dj sets and also the general melancholic vibe of the last days of summer ie “just a good mixtape to close your eyes and travel mentally to”.

“The tardigrade is a micro-animal found everywhere, from mountain tops to deep sea, from tropical rainforests to the Antartic. It is able to survive extreme temperatures, extreme pressures (both high and low), air deprivation, radiation, dehydration, and starvation. It can have sex in outer space. Under unfavourable conditions, it goes into a state of suspended animation in which it can survive for years or even decades, making the tardigrade virtually immortal. I’m not trying to say « I am like a tardigrade » or « this mixtape is a tardigrade », i’m just saying, tardigrades are really cool.”

Rising Amsterdam based artist Zanillya unveils her sophomore single “For You” and it’s a vibesfilled jam (think Sevdaliza meets Kelela) that she co-produced together with Humphrey Dennis (together they form production duo MariaDennis).

“The song is about knowing your worth, especially when others take you for granted. It speaks about finding the strength within yourself to walk away from toxic environments, and ultimately, sacrificing a harmful relationship to begin a journey of self-love.”
