The Discobelle mix series may have been a bit sporadic over the last couple of months due to time restraints but we’re closing out 2017 strong with this smasher of a mix from Stockholm based trio Polaris* who makes sure to give us a selection of all dancehall bangers that’s bound to make you dance yourself out of that Christmas food-induced coma.
Tracklist after the jump.
The latest single from Swedish artist Olsson is entitled “U”, it received a fantastic and Swedish Grammy-nominated visual treatment last month.
Now, we’re happy to hear the official remixes pouring in. The first one came courtesy of Albin Myers and now we get an early Christmas present from one of our favourite (and from what we gather Olsson is also a big fan) dj’s/producers namely Anton Klint (also known for his work with Tiedye).
He churns out a spectacular and hypnotic cosmic/psych-disco sounding remix that sets the perfect tone for any 3 AM laid-back rave mode.
This is what Maggie said about the process when working on the EP:
“It’s my most important music personally as I wrangled with a lot of demons (depression, rape, isolation, self-acceptance). It feels and sounds mostly like a very celebratory, free EP to me though. Addressing these things gave them so much less power over me.”
It’s beginning to look alot like Christmas especially since Chance The Rapper and Jeremih dropped the new 2017 edition of their Christmas mixtape collaboration “Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama Re-Wrapped”.
California based rap artist Pouya has built a die hard fan base and amassed 33 million plays on Spotify alone with his relatable lyrics, his latest single “Suicidal Thoughts In The Back Of The Cadillac Pt. 2.” is about the fact that everyone goes through triumphs and internal issues, and ultimately gives the wholesome feeling that we are not alone in feeling this way.
The single serves as the second prelude to his upcoming 2018 album release.
