For the avid reader of Discobelle, the name DJ Wool should be associated with superb dj sets (he’s a former DMC champion) and seriosuly bumping tracks on labels such as Top Billin, Plant Music, Discobelle Records etc. along with being a member of popular indie/dance duo The Glass. He’s also a maestro in the mixing/production room having worked with the likes of REM, Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries), Spoek Mathambo, Todd Terry, Far East Movement, Herbert Gronemeyer, Jagz Kooner, Howie B, Andy Rourke (The Smiths), Tittsworth and many more.
After spending time in New York and Berlin, Dublin born DJ Wool has relocated to Northern California where he’s working as an audio engineer and has also been hard at work in his studio with new album “A Life In Breaks” which will be released on October 21st via NYC label Dither Down.
This absolutely astounding and warm, organic sounding mix for us sees him exploring breaks, minimal and ambient AKA “Ambi-Rock” and it’s inspired by what made him start his music career back in the 90’s.
Finnish duo Femme En Fourrure are part of the Discobelle family (especially after a string of fantastic releases on our own label Discobelle Records), this remix of fellow Finnish artist Alma and her huge hit “Karma” (which has been streamed 12 million times already) sees them drop some housed out wobble for a dance pop masterpiece.
We hope you didn’t miss the latest release on Discobelle Records, the summer smash “Gone” from Northern Sweden duo Caotico, a massive track that leans on a heavy, pulsating UK garage sounding beat interspersed with robotic vocals a la Daft Punk turning this into a dancefloor bomb.
BONUS: Peep the video too which was premiered by our friends over at Gotta Dance Dirty.
Northern Sweden duo Caotico are releasing their superb new single “Gone” right here on Discobelle Records today (May 19th), it’s a massive track that leans on a pulsating UK garage sounding beat interspersed with robotic vocals a la Daft Punk turning this into a dancefloor bomb.
Julio Bashmore this week announces his debut album “Knockin’ Boots” with the release of a first single “Holding On.” The album will feature a myriad of collaborations, including ones with Bixby and J’Danna.
Sir Sly shares their remix package of the single “You Haunt Me” and the one we’re really swooning over is from ShadowLuxx. The 18-year-old writer/producer/multi-instrumentalist first came gained notoriety from his collaboration with Afrojack on “Catch Tomorrow” featuring Sting, which was released by Def Jam on Afrojack’s Forget the World album. Be sure to grab his remix of “You Haunt Me,” out now via Cherrytree Records.
After a super long hiatus, Discobelle Records is back with a brand new string of releases to keep you up in 2014. Arriving this month, the “High Steppin’ EP” from Austrian house-maestro, Dizzy Womack, is a slick little 4-tracker featuring three original cuts from Womack and remix duties from Look Like.
As the follow up release to his 2013 EP, “Black Ice”, on Top Billin’, we find Dizzy in fine form with opening cut, “French Sin.” A hypnotic groover with dancing, French-spoken-word vox peppered thru-out. Contrary to its name, “High Steppin'” gets deep, down and dirty with a booty-chakra rumbling bass and pitched down vocals. “She Goes Back” is the deepest of the bunch with stuttering vox and filtered pads, the accompanying remix from Look Like version amps up the more “garage-y” elements which lends the tune a more menacing vibe.
Releasedate is today January 31st, thanks for starting you new year out right with Dizzy Womack and Discobelle Records!
