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.

Sacre – Stereo

Nov 30 2017

Parisian duo Sacre announces their debut EP and shares a new single “Stereo” that harkens back to the early days of nu-disco and garners comparisons with disco savants like Todd Terje and Lindstrom. The song features French rapper and fellow newcomer Dopize who adds hip hop flair on the third verse.

Discobelle premiere in the house!

From our friends in grooved out/funked up/disco outfit FSQ we received this alternate and extended DJ dub version of their remix for Los Angeles producer B Bravo. The original version of the remix appears on B Bravo’s “Paradise Remixed” album (also on the “Paradise Remixed” compilation are remixes from XL Middleton, Simbad, Pillowtalk, Captain Planet, Teeko, Jaël and Grandfeather) which was recently released via the Bastard Jazz label.

The original version of the track is a super smooth affair but the FSQ crew put in a very different “Caribbean Disco” sounding remix of the track with member GKoop spearheading the production of the remix. GKoop has been busy this year as the co-writer of platinum-selling hip-hop hits like “It’s a Vibe” by 2 Chainz and “Bad and Boujee” by Migos. Fortunately, he took time out of his hectic schedule for FSQ and brought in drummer Marquisse Moore and pianist Graham Richards to give the remix a strong dose of Borinquen flavor and highlights the percussion we peppered the mix with: woodblocks, congas, bongos, and clappers in order to make everyone dance.

Let the beat play on and enjoy this special exclusive FSQ “Caribbean Disco Dub” of B Bravo’s “Freak It”!

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
