If you haven’t spent the last few years jet-setting to the hottest megaclubs and exclusive star-studded soirées across the globe, chances are you may not have heard of DJ Politik. His latest rework of Poppy and Diplo’s retrofuturistic “Time Is Up” is a high-energy, midtempo, moombah inspired dancefloor pleaser, with hints of brass & trap percussion that seem to crossover into all of his productions.
After 4 years and 1,5 million+ streams, childhood friends Mons and Amadeus in Swedish electronic pop duo Anwai are finally ready to unleash their debut EP “Dreams”. The duo has received praise from media outlets across the globe, their songs have been featured on multiple radio stations in Europe in addition to being featured on TV shows in North America. Their debut EP gives us four tracks of sublime pop music interspersed with electronica and r’n’b elements and soft vocals.
The two EP tracks “Dreams” and “Changing” will also be released as beautiful acoustic versions in March recorded in Riksmixningsverket Studio (a studio that was created by world famous producer Benny Andersson from ABBA).
“Our debut EP “DREAMS” has been quite a long time coming. It is quite hard putting down something that you’ve been working on for a long time and calling it done. I would call it a mixture of both old Anwai but also something new. I feel we’ve taken the sound to a much higher level than before. Both production-wise and just judging upon the writing and arrangement. But I guess that comes with time. We’ve had almost five years now to grow together musically.” – Anwai?
Los Angeles based house wizard Pat Lok comes straight from a massively successful 2018 to start off 2019 with new single “From the Back” that features raunchy vocals from NYC transplant Dances with White Girls.
The track was made in collaboration with fellow Los Angeles duo Party Pupils, and it’s a seriously funky and thumping club ready nu-disco jam that we at Discobelle are stoked to premiere.
“I had been following PP on Twitter and saw they were talking about an A-Ha remix, so I reached out and sent them some piano ideas for it and that was how we connected. They’re based in LA so I went into the studio with Ryan one day and started playing out these chords, he put down some drums and very quickly we had a club jam! It very much captures the vibe and energy of our projects together.” – Pat Lok
Lok and Party Pupils plan to hit the road together on a US tour later this year.
