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.”

A new artist that recently came across my radar Mickey Kojak just released a brand new single ‘It’s Gonna Be Okay’. The producer collaborated with Jake Stone to bring us an insanely groovy jam. Filled with funky baseline and fun upbeat vocals, this is sure to be a smash.

Building on the success of his last album, Kai Straw is back with his new LP, Gun. After being recapped in Spotify’s Best Fresh Finds and receiving support from the likes of Demi Lovato and K.Flay, Straw looks ready to take on the world, approaching this LP without any fear or hesitation. The 10-track Gun EP is a full body of work that will surprise, delight, and at times, confuse you. Art can be interpreted in many ways and it is without doubt that this man is looking to test and further the boundaries of indie pop music.

“I wanted to make something that embodies aspiration; the ambition, the vulnerability, the arrogance, the isolation, the hope – the want for a partner that sees the road you see.  Ambition can be such a desperate thing; I see a gun in my mind when I think of the word. I wanted to make an album about that. The rattling in your soul when you’re grinding toward what you want from life.  Something that felt like – flicking the cylinder into place, pulling back the hammer and saying, “give me all you got.”

“Everything Changes” is the latest track to emerge from PBR Streetgangs recently released debut album “Late Night Party Line”, it’s a wonderful slice of funky disco that features Mattie Safer of The Rapture on vocals and is adorned with handclaps and cowbell.

A remix package for the track drops on Friday, February 23rd and we here at Discobelle got our mitts on the exclusive premiere of the remix by German duo Tuff City Kids who manages to bring out the track into full-on house mode.

“If we had to pick one record from the album, it would have to be ‘Everything Changes’. We’re really proud of this track – it’s the one we got an instant vibe from in the studio, something just felt very on point when making it. We always knew the right vocal would fully bring it to life and Matty Safer really stepped up and smashed it out of the park! We’re so happy with the finished result!”

French producer/dj DAZE just released the first single off his forthcoming EP, “Oh!” features fluid vocals from Fanny and channels soothing summer vibes with a bouncy yet mellow French electro-pop vibe.
