Lyon producer Alex Autajon has been featured here on Discobelle in the past so when he dropped new single “Baeblade/easyGym”, we knew that it was gonna be good. The single was released via Moveltraxx last week and the two juke/footwork influenced tracks are excellent examples of the kind of left-field club music that we’d come to expect from the young producer.

The man, the myth, the legend known as Teki Latex should be well known to everyone who’s into forward thinking club music. Since his involvement with acclaimed French rap group TTC, he’s emerged as one of the most prolific dj’s/producers out of Paris.

A while back he turned his focus to dj’ing with the purpose of giving every mixtape the same attention that a recording artist would give to an EP/album and hoping that people treat them, listen to them and react to them the same way as they would an album. His recent, mind-bending and boundary pushing “King Of Blends” mixtape trilogy focused on giving iconic pop tracks and classic underground tunes a new context by layering them with more modern and obscure tracks. The mixtape trilogy was lauded with praise.

His absolutely fantastic new mixtape “The Tardigrade’s Lament” is a simpler affair that doesn’t deal with a specific concept or being filled with spectacular blends but instead it’s designed to reflect the vibe of his recent dj sets and also the general melancholic vibe of the last days of summer ie “just a good mixtape to close your eyes and travel mentally to”.

“The tardigrade is a micro-animal found everywhere, from mountain tops to deep sea, from tropical rainforests to the Antartic. It is able to survive extreme temperatures, extreme pressures (both high and low), air deprivation, radiation, dehydration, and starvation. It can have sex in outer space. Under unfavourable conditions, it goes into a state of suspended animation in which it can survive for years or even decades, making the tardigrade virtually immortal. I’m not trying to say « I am like a tardigrade » or « this mixtape is a tardigrade », i’m just saying, tardigrades are really cool.”

If you’ve been clubbing in Stockholm during the past couple of years, you’re bound to have encountered dj/producer Jeansbjörn who happens to be one of the most wicked selectors that are on offer here in Sweden. Now, he’s teamed up with Rave-Dave for a mixtape of all heat that’s definitely gonna be bumped for the rest of the summer.

“From Titiyo to Bella Boo, via Morabeza Tobacco, Blunted Dummies and a New Order classic with a twist of Kedr Livanskiy – this is a mix of some older and some newer favorites we’ve been bumping this spring. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do :))”

We’re proud to premiere the dope looking visuals directed by Sophie Vukovic for the club bomb of a track “Little Girl” by the always amazing Swedish artist Gnucci, the track is lifted from Gnuccis debut album “You Good I’m Good Let’s Be Great”.
