NYC based producer/dj and Fool’s Gold Records family member Sammy Bananas has been a staple here at Discobelle ever since we started out some 10+ years ago, mainly because he always keeps it quirky and fun. His debut EP for fellow New Yorkers in boutique label Bastard Jazz is slated for a release tomorrow March 15th and the “Piananana EP” showcases his signature funky and piano based club tracks mixed in with more late night action in a sweaty and packed basement kind of sound.
The track “Non-Stop” (currently the #12 bestseller on Traxsource) is in its original form a hypnotic and bass heavy stomper that Parisian producer Hugo LX transforms into an equally hypnotic track but with a more reserved and almost loungelike feeling.
Pjay Parisi has been lauded as the next big star within the Swedish r’n’b scene. His previous single was released two years ago and since then Pjay Parisi has been living with and beyond music, functioning somewhere in the border between poetry, reading, writing and life. Now, he just released new single “Flingor” (taken off his EP “Vasa” which will drop via Swedish boutique label Something Beautiful on March 29th) which is a soft spoken almost muted jam.
Up and coming producer CHVMSI has been receiving support from the top names and had his last release featured on Hardwell’s On Air compilation. His new release “Serenity” is a euphoric future bass tune with massive synth production and ethereal vocals from AJ Euro.
Acclaimed artist Nadia Ali might be more known for her clubbier dance pop sound. After years of intensely touring packed venues and festivals, she took a step back, retreating into a home in the Southern California mountains to explore new tempos and sounds thus starting new project HYLLS. The project began as an exchange of ideas between Ali and her collaborators a Grammy-nominated team of musicians (whose identities remain anonymous). HYLLS marks a transition into a subdued sound of organic instruments and cinematic textures. The new HYLLS album “Once” was just released last Thursday and can be streamed below.
French producer Kidswaste (aka Quentin Beauvois) is gearing up for the next highly-promising phase of his career with his first release of 2019, the euphoric “Sleeping Pills” featuring KOLE, out now via Counter Records. Subtle, yet soothing tones and textures magnify the effortless brilliance that Kidwaste presents in his latest, with the multi-instrumentalist and songwriter’s appeal and burgeoning fan base being solidified to the tune of over 40 million streams on Spotify, 11.4 million streams on Apple Music and 13.8 million on Soundcloud. Additionally, his 2017 collaboration with Manila Killa “Tonight” has been streamed nearly 6 million times on Spotify alone and received three New Music Friday placements upon release. Alongside the release, Kidswaste will join DROELOE on a leg of their upcoming tour, as well as a festival appearance at BUKU Music & Art Project in New Orleans.
After a seven year long hiatus, Gothenburg pop outfit Sambassadeur are back! Their fourth album “Survival” will be released on April 12th and will be the first release on their own label European Records. The second album single “Stuck” will be released tomorrow March 8th and we here at Discobelle can premiere the chilled out italo sounding remix from fellow Swedish artist Azure Blue who turns up the dance on this synthfilled jam.
“Stuck is the first song from” Survival “that we started to work on. The first version was recorded with a classic guitar, bass and drum setting, but when the song was finished it felt completely wrong and we had to start over again with synth bass, harpsichords and home-built drum machines, maybe we should have recorded the song as a ballad instead but this is how it turned out. ”
Later this spring, the band will go on tour and on May 10th they will appear on stage for the first time since 2012 at Debaser Strand in Stockholm.
Los Angeles native producer Fluencee just dropped a majestic new single “Chasing After You”. He brings some warmth and brightness to these cold winter days, with his uplifting sound design and catchy lyrics.
