Sacre – Stereo

Nov 30 2017

Parisian duo Sacre announces their debut EP and shares a new single “Stereo” that harkens back to the early days of nu-disco and garners comparisons with disco savants like Todd Terje and Lindstrom. The song features French rapper and fellow newcomer Dopize who adds hip hop flair on the third verse.

The Future Disco brand has been renowned for their iconic compilations since 2009 and the third release on the UK based label comes from Belgian producer Vhyce and his “The City EP” which brings out the funked up disco sound that’s made him a staple within the underground dance scene and is catapulting him to being one of the leading names within nu-disco.

The EP consists of three original tracks that all come with a retro disco reference and glimmering production work. We at Discobelle can premiere “Now You’re Gone” which is a groovy stomper.

LCAW steps up this month with one of the catchiest songs I’ve peeped this Summer. On top of the solid songmanship, what’s most impressive here is the use of real instruments in place of tired pre-sets for this funk-infused indie dance offering. A chilled dynamic with a toe-tapping pulse, that’s what ‘Nobody Else But You’ delivers, making the German talent one of the genre’s more imaginative prospects on the beat right now.

On April 14th legendary Swiss electronic duo In Flagranti present their pre-internet-record-buying-phoneline-concept-album-come-mixtape “Sprezzatura” which will be released via Codek Records.

“Back in the early 80s when I lived in Switzerland, I use to travel to Italy a lot for clubs and record shopping. In Rimini there was a great store called Disco Piu. They had this service where if you were out of town or from another country, you could sign-up and get a cassette of all the new releases in the post every week. Each new track was recorded for about a minute and there was a voice counting – so you could write down the tracks you liked – then phone or fax the track numbers and the date of the cassette, they’d send you the records and you’d pay on delivery, which was amazing”, says In Flagranti’s Sasa Crnobrnja on ‘Sprezzatura’s inspiration, concept and format. He further explains, “So this album will be available as a mix on cassette with each track playing for a minute or two. You’re basically listening to it like a mixtape and in the same manner as the tapes from Disco Piu. You’ll be able to choose your favourite tracks from ‘Sprezzatura’ and buy the full versions as downloads.”

We here at Discobelle can premiere the superb and hypnotic disco stomper “My Sordid Little Affair”.

2016 was a pretty shitty year all around but alot of seriously amazing music was released during the course of these 12 months, here’s our 66 favorite tracks of 2016 all neatly packaged into a Spotify playlist.

The new NTEIBINT (the alter ego of Greek producer George Bakalakos) & Stella release “Hide In” dropped just about 2 weeks ago via Belgian label Eskimo Recordings, the single comes packed with remixes from Ewan Pearson Zombies In Miami.

The track was originally a slow and melancholic ballad but was deconstructed and is now essentially a nu disco infused pop love song that you can dance to.

To celebrate the release NTEIBINT put together this exclusive top class mix of warm and soulful house/ disco tunes for us here at Discobelle, listen and get into the summer spirit.
