The latest single from Swedish artist Olsson is entitled “U”, it received a fantastic and Swedish Grammy-nominated visual treatment last month.

Now, we’re happy to hear the official remixes pouring in. The first one came courtesy of Albin Myers and now we get an early Christmas present from one of our favourite (and from what we gather Olsson is also a big fan) dj’s/producers namely Anton Klint (also known for his work with Tiedye).

He churns out a spectacular and hypnotic cosmic/psych-disco sounding remix that sets the perfect tone for any 3 AM laid-back rave mode.

Husqvarna Motorcycles teams up with us here at Discobelle along with our friends in Swedish acts Aron McFaul and franskild for two exclusive mixes to coincide with the release of the brand new Husqvarna Motorcycles street ​​​bike ​​range​.

The new street bike range consists of the SVARTPILEN- and VITPILEN models that nod to the history of this classic Swedish company and brings it into today with ​​simple​​ yet​​ progressive​​ design,​​ distinctive​​ style​​ and​​ Swedish​​ understatement​.

The two mixes from Aron McFaul and franskild each correspond with the street bike models, Arons SVARTPILEN mix was made as a “…soundtrack for driving down European roads on the motorcycle at night…” and showcases his strutting balearic discoish sound while franskilds VITPILEN mix has playful yet controlled feel or you could say a simple yet progressive organic house sound.

On April 14th legendary Swiss electronic duo In Flagranti present their pre-internet-record-buying-phoneline-concept-album-come-mixtape “Sprezzatura” which will be released via Codek Records.

“Back in the early 80s when I lived in Switzerland, I use to travel to Italy a lot for clubs and record shopping. In Rimini there was a great store called Disco Piu. They had this service where if you were out of town or from another country, you could sign-up and get a cassette of all the new releases in the post every week. Each new track was recorded for about a minute and there was a voice counting – so you could write down the tracks you liked – then phone or fax the track numbers and the date of the cassette, they’d send you the records and you’d pay on delivery, which was amazing”, says In Flagranti’s Sasa Crnobrnja on ‘Sprezzatura’s inspiration, concept and format. He further explains, “So this album will be available as a mix on cassette with each track playing for a minute or two. You’re basically listening to it like a mixtape and in the same manner as the tapes from Disco Piu. You’ll be able to choose your favourite tracks from ‘Sprezzatura’ and buy the full versions as downloads.”

We here at Discobelle can premiere the superb and hypnotic disco stomper “My Sordid Little Affair”.
