Dope indie track from an artist that I’ve just discovered through a friend. kordz isn’t yet a household name but his music has the quality of an artist well beyond his years. Here’s what he had to say about his new single “This track started out as a simple melody that I discovered during improvising on the piano. I found it fascinating because the harmony seemed to come directly out of the melody; they weren’t two separate things. The sounds of breaking tree branches and crackling leaves are ripping through a chorale that’s echoing from a church, far away. The chorale sounds like its coming from far away, while the sounds of the nature seem to happen almost inside of your ears. It created a very strange atmosphere” – kordz

On Friday September 7th we receive another edition of the Poolside series from Toolroom Records. “Poolside Ibiza 2018” is basically your essential collection of summer tracks to soundtrack those long hazy days spent by the pool, two very talented DJs were recruited to mix this year’s edition. They both hail from Portugal – Moullinex and Xinobi (the pair have releases on labels such as Ministry Of Sound, Nervous, Gomma, Anjunadeep) and they might just be two of the biggest artists in the indie dance/nu-disco world

The 40 tracks from a whole host of A-List DJs and producers including Moullinex, Xinobi, Eli & Fur, Moon Boots, Tensnake, Booka Shade, Hot Toddy, Art Of Tones, Cavego, Perel, Mambo Brothers, NTEIBINT, Justin Jay, Franky Rizardo, Bruxas, David Hohme, Moscoman, Simple Symmetry, Ali Kuru and many more alongside a brand new exclusive from Boys Get Hurt with Moullinex & Xinobi’s two full length DJ mixes completing the package.

We at Discobelle can offer up the premiere of the track “Lost & Found” from Tokyo based producer Boys Get Hurt that features Tiago on vocals, it’s a superbly warm and sparking sounding House tune! Sit back, relax and unwind with Toolroom’s Poolside album.

German producers/dj’s Jens Moelle and Ismail Tufekci are better known as indie dance/electro duo Digitalism. Today they release brand new and huge sounding single “Glow” which is filled to the brink with crunchy synths and pleading vocals. The single serves as the prelude to the September 13th release of their new EP “PR15M”.

“Glow” is aimed at the dance floor and the duo describes the track best:

“It’s been a while since we’ve been dancing together — so put on your shoes, we’re going out! “Glow” turned out to be so loud after mastering that we had to dial it back down a bit. Best enjoyed on a big PA”.

Posed as a spotlight for rappers and vocalists stamped with the SOULECTION seal of approval, the recent launch of the brand’s Black Label imprint gives the North American powerhouse a chance to refine an otherwise on/off run of release from the brand throughout 2018. Cut from the label’s inaugural EP, LA-collective Hablot Brown take center stage alongside multi-talented Londoner Maths Time Joy for ‘Reason’ – a surefire sign that SOULECTION is back on track. Lucious guitar licks and impeccable vocal finesse dress this soulful slice of instrumentally refined R&B, giving a pretty solid indicator that Black Label isn’t to be marked as a half measure venture from Joe Kay’s gang.

I’m not here to advocate covering Fleetwood Mac. Rumours remains the perfect album. It needs no improving. That said, if you’re going to revisit the turbulent act’s glory days, do so with the blissful energy and aura of Jaguar Dreams. The New York trio takes on one hell of a task, lacing ‘Dreams’ with aptly sedative melodies and a docile beat, but emerge with a respectful nod to one of Mac’s most memorable cuts from the classic 1977 LP.
