Los Angeles based house wizard Pat Lok comes straight from a massively successful 2018 to start off 2019 with new single “From the Back” that features raunchy vocals from NYC transplant Dances with White Girls.

The track was made in collaboration with fellow Los Angeles duo Party Pupils, and it’s a seriously funky and thumping club ready nu-disco jam that we at Discobelle are stoked to premiere.

“I had been following PP on Twitter and saw they were talking about an A-Ha remix, so I reached out and sent them some piano ideas for it and that was how we connected. They’re based in LA so I went into the studio with Ryan one day and started playing out these chords, he put down some drums and very quickly we had a club jam! It very much captures the vibe and energy of our projects together.” – Pat Lok

Lok and Party Pupils plan to hit the road together on a US tour later this year.

Tomorrow Friday October 12th, Belgian label Eskimo Recordings releases the new single “Athena” from German nu-disco producer Satin Jackets.

“Athena” sees him collaborate with American born but Athens based artist Anduze and the driving rhythm along with the warm and breezy melody of the track matches the stunning and soulful vocals perfectly.

“Athens, Greece has always lured me in with her warmth, charm, and overall ancient beauty. After visiting each year for a decade, I was inspired to write about the city I now live in…Once I’d finished the lyrics, the musical landscape I thought would compliment it best was a vintage and melodic electro vibe. I’ve always loved Satin Jackets’ style and production, so I thought to reach out to Tim, and I feel so fortunate that we could collaborate. The result is just what I’d pictured it to be… Athena.”

NYC based singer and boogie chanteuse Amy Douglas (1/2 of Peach Melba and collaborator on so many amazing tracks) makes her official DFA Records debut with her brand new single “Never Saw It Coming” (co-written and produced by fellow New Yorker Tim Wagner of 33Hz/Dither Down Records fame, with two remixes coming from UK based artist Crooked Man).

Amy’s fantastic and powerful voice is at the absolute centre of the track, adding a sense of drama to a track that can best be described as “steady mechanical funk” that meets a disco house groove. The two remixes on the single from Crooked Man lets the track grow and build slowly with lush arrangements, while his hypnotic sounding dub version plays up the woozy bassline and lets Amy’s vocals echo out into the ether.

The original version of the track “Feel Me” (to be released tomorrow Friday September 21st via Belgian label Eskimo Recordings) from Paris based producer Simon Says is a sleazed up monster of a new wave/pop track (a cover of British synthpop band Blancmange and their 1982 album track), fellow French producer/dj Yuksek ups the the disco elements and the cosmic synth stabs to make it lift off into deep space.
