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.

Black Gold Buffalo originally formed in East London back in 2014. A line-up change, a move to the South East Coast in the UK and with lots of time spent writing under their belts, the four-piece are now ready to release their self titled debut album in Spring 2018. The album tackles obstacles young people face growing up in the city, the highs and lows of inner city living, escapism, frustration etc.

Hannah Holland who plays bass in the band is also an iconic DJ, producer and label boss that most of you have probably heard of. Her distinct sound incorporates elements of house, techno and bass. Her releases can be found on iconic labels such as Classic Music Company, Crosstown Rebels, Nervous Records and of course on her own labels Batty Bass and Native City.

This exclusive Discobelle premiere of the Hannah Holland remix of single track “Pearls Deep” is a steadfast piece of darkish indie dance with an infectious bassline, a housed up beat and vocals that linger in the background.
