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.

Up and coming Brazilian duo Balako just released their debut EP “Hora De Balako” for the fine people over at the excellent Greco Roman label and we here at Discobelle are extremely pleased that they wanted to contribute to our mix series.

Balako AKA Diogo Strausz and Rodrigo are producers and multi instrumentalists out of Rio De Janeiro. The pair has a knack for mixing up rare samples with their own unreleased, genre-spanning edits with their styles ranging from techno and house to salsa and carimbo and to blending that with ’70s disco/funk in order to create something both retro and current which their mix for us is a smashing testament to.

Tracklist for the mix after the jump.

Glaswegian producer and trained jazz musician KC Lights drops the vocal version of his single “Sundown (Loving Me)” via BBC Radio 1 DJ’s Danny Howard’s new label Nothing Else Matters and we here at Discobelle got the exclusive premiere.

The instrumental version of the track was released back in February and it’s been a massive hit with over 1.5 million streams on Spotify thus far. This new version showcases the vocal offerings of Rae Hall and is a warm, soulful feel good house tinged track that should be vital for the upcoming party season.

Norwegian pop artist Gundelach dropped his critically acclaimed debut EP last year (the EP was nominated in the best pop album category at the Norwegian Grammys and has seen serious radio play in Germany and the UK along with high streaming numbers) and he’s had a strong run this summer gaining momentum with new single tracks such as “Garden” and most recently the dark pop of “Holy Water,” which Pigeons and Planes described as “hauntingly beautiful”.

We here at Discobelle can now offer up the astounding remix for the single “Garden” by well renowned Swedish artist and producer Dan Lissvik (who is perhaps best known for his previous work with balearic disco/pop outfit Studio along with production and remix projects for the likes of Young Galaxy, Taken By Trees, HAIM, Foals, and Kylie Minogue). Dan Lissvik takes the discoish sound of the original version and adds on a warm electronic sprinkle making this a blissful track for all those late summer nights.

Gundelach is currently working on his debut LP but catch him live at the following upcoming dates:

Fri, Aug 18 // Bornholm, Denmark @ Wonderfestiwall
Wed, Sept 20 // Oslo, Norway @ Parkteatret
Fri, Sept 22 // Gothenburg, Sweden @ HokiMoki
