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.

Ethan Parker is only just beginning to make his mark on the music scene and we are very happy to be able to share his latest work, “Feel Something.” With 1 prior release under his belt, it is a magical experience to watch his sound evolve.

“Feel Something” is upbeat, disco infused hit that effortlessly couples with Parker’s melodic vocals.

“I wanted to try something different with this song. Something that moved people, literally. I hear so many dance records that I enjoy with great melodies and cool lyrics, but they can be very surface level at times. My goal was to incorporate my own perspective into something with dance vibes. “Feel Something” is a song about purpose. People need to know what they’re living for and why they’re living. It’s so easy to be swayed by the latest trend or by what everyone else is living for, but once you find that purpose and the reason for why you live you start to feel passion. That’s the something I want people to feel.” – Ethan Parker

Australian producer/dj Husky is back with huge new single “Secrets” (to be released on Oct 6th via Bobbin Head Music) featuring his friend and vocalist powerhouse Shyam P. The pair have worked on “Secrets” for quite some time now, and the single release contains two original versions to fully showcase Shyam’s amazing vocals.

On remix duty (and featured as a Discobelle premiere) we find Melbourne based disco enthusiasts in Yasumo, they turned out a vibey, funked up discoish monster with all the right moves.

Italian disco producer/dj Bottin is gearing up for the release of his upcoming album “I Have What I Gave” due to be released on October 6th via 2MR.

As a prelude to the album release, we here at Discobelle can premiere the video for single track “Roulez Jeunesse” (the phrase originates from France and was used by the ride operator to evoke the rides and bumper cars in fairs. The expression is now commonly used to mean that you’re all set to go). The video uses archive footage from a fairground to give us an insight into Italian dance culture in the 90’s.

Kraver – Moorea

Sep 21 2017

Italo disco still has a place on dancefloors – just as Dutch duo Kraver. The act has had a long and sparing run of high quality releases keeping the genre ticking, but finally break their silence this motnh with ‘Moorea.’ The track sits somewhere between a retro video game soundtrack and a melodically charged ode to the genre, marking a surprise return from Kraver and a sound that refuses to admit defeat.

Disco classic “I Feel Love” was produced by Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, with lyrics by Donna Summer and first appeared on Donna Summer’s 1977 album “I Remember Yesterday”, it could be considered as “one of the most influential records ever made”. Following in the wake of such high esteem is no mean feat – however – Cr2 founder Mark Brown AKA MYNC alongside legendary 90’s house duo Rhythm Masters created an edit back in 2010 which conquered the beach bars and clubs of Ibiza throughout that season.

Since then, the edit has remained in the Cr2 vaults awaiting a refreshed version for the changing face of electronic music in 2017 and beyond… Finally, the moment came, alongside the labels “Past, Present & Future” series which has seen some of the most exciting producers reinvigorate Cr2classics, it became clear that this particular edit was worth an overhaul.

Handpicked for their notable underground style, Glaswegian duo Illyus & Barrientos fires up their signature club-ready house style and transforms the track into an even bigger, floor-filling thunderous anthem.

You can pre-order the track here.
