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

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.
