Bordeaux based electronic producer Uppermost could be next big thing emerging from the French electronic music scene, he has already seen support from media outlets such as BILLBOARD, Complex, Dancing Astronaut, YourEdm, Paper Mag, Magnetic Mag, Clash Mag, This Song Is Sick and Earmilk. He has also had the opportunity to work on official remixes for top acts such as Dada Life, Lemaitre and The Midnight.

His sound straddles between nu-disco and the signature French Touch, but Uppermost is also inspired by Persian music along with drawing inspiration from artists such as Bon Iver, Floating Points, Lane 8, and Crazy P.

We are able to premiere his upcoming single “Every Human Is An Artist”, slated for release on Friday November 15th via his own imprint, Uppwind Records.

The solid track is built upon an expanding bass and airy vocals that lingers on top along with cascading chimes.

“I have the feeling that every human being has a huge creative potential that can be expressed in a million different ways, I composed this track as a way to celebrate the beautiful power of plurality that makes sharing so important for all of us.”

NICOLAAS (formerly known as Muneshine, has worked alongside a plethora of noteworthy artists: Tom Waits, Pete Rock, DJ Spinna, Sean Price, Fucked Up, and The Herbaliser) is the new moniker of producer Rob Bakker and he makes funked up, synthy awesomeness.

His new single “Real Escape (Disco Despair remix)” will be released via Haven Sounds on June 21st but we here at Discobelle can offer up the sweet sounding and glittery disco remix from Finnish producer/dj Disco Despair as a premiere today already.

“I felt the remix needed a different approach, while still keeping the energy of the original intact. The topline has a great vibe to it, and it allowed for a little musical exploration. I wanted to bring in a little more harmonic movement and some French touch glazed with an 80’s vibe.”

Yuksek’s record label Partyfine has been a carefully curated imprint, with every release sounding stronger and more cohesive than the first. It’s all a stunning testament to the talented French producer’s production values, and we’re beyond thrilled to have learnt that he’s gearing up for a new compilation, the third compilation out via the label.

Today we’re excited to premiere the “Reich & Darwin” remix by Kerenn Ann, Yuksek & Chassol. While the original itself is a piano driven piece, the remix takes it to the electronic hemisphere and allows it to grab an added layer of emotional depth to the piece, making it come alive in a whole other way.

Check out both the original and remixed version below.

As we head into the second half of the weekend, I become pretty obsessively into music as a distraction until the weekend. Luckily enough, I get a lot of great submissions at Discobelle, including this amazing track by Cameron Murdoch called “Revival.” The stunning song features house-influenced rhythm over well thought out lyrics, and the result is magic.

According to the artist himself- “This is my favorite record from ILM2 because it serves a reminder that I’m alive, I am not alone, and I have everything that I truly need. I hope that anyone listening to this record can reflect, with joy, on what makes them complete.”

Pre-order I Love Me Too via Amazon. Listen to the track below.

It’s Friday, which means I’m basically brain dead already and drudging through my reports to hurry up and start my weekend. Luckily we at Discobelle have gotten some great music in our inbox this week, including this stunning mix we’re premiering from Mutemath called “Changes”.

The boys behind Mutemath are getting ready to release Changes the album, a re-imagining of their previous release “Vitals”. The forthcoming LP features reworks by Mutemath’s own members, as well as remixes from a collection of well-respected producers including yacht. club, Kasbo & more.

Listen to the mix above!
