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.

On Friday September 7th we receive another edition of the Poolside series from Toolroom Records. “Poolside Ibiza 2018” is basically your essential collection of summer tracks to soundtrack those long hazy days spent by the pool, two very talented DJs were recruited to mix this year’s edition.

Sundae Suki (AKA Will Nainis) is a Brooklyn based dj/producer and head of the Sundae Sounds label who honed his skills in the Washington D.C. club scene. He’s been dj’ing for the past 15 years but after holding down multiple residencies in both D.C. and NYC, he decided to start over with a focus on the music that inspired him to get into dj’ing. His inspiration ranges from acid house to the classic sound of New York hip-hop and his sets reflect that eclectic spirit.

“My sound has changed a lot over the years. One thing I really value now is how important it is to define your sound as a DJ. It took me a while to figure that out.”

His skillfully made mix for us in Discobelle takes us on a wild ride of rare vinyl releases.
