Norwegian pop artist Gundelach dropped his critically acclaimed debut EP last year (the EP was nominated in the best pop album category at the Norwegian Grammys and has seen serious radio play in Germany and the UK along with high streaming numbers) and he’s had a strong run this summer gaining momentum with new single tracks such as “Garden” and most recently the dark pop of “Holy Water,” which Pigeons and Planes described as “hauntingly beautiful”.

We here at Discobelle can now offer up the astounding remix for the single “Garden” by well renowned Swedish artist and producer Dan Lissvik (who is perhaps best known for his previous work with balearic disco/pop outfit Studio along with production and remix projects for the likes of Young Galaxy, Taken By Trees, HAIM, Foals, and Kylie Minogue). Dan Lissvik takes the discoish sound of the original version and adds on a warm electronic sprinkle making this a blissful track for all those late summer nights.

Gundelach is currently working on his debut LP but catch him live at the following upcoming dates:

Fri, Aug 18 // Bornholm, Denmark @ Wonderfestiwall
Wed, Sept 20 // Oslo, Norway @ Parkteatret
Fri, Sept 22 // Gothenburg, Sweden @ HokiMoki

Xan Griffin is fast becoming associated with an emotively tinted take of the future/pop world. Teaming up with Emilia Ali this month as part of his ongoing Zodiac project, ‘Cancer’ forms a delicate yet easy flowing injection of toned down future bass fundamentals with a firm melodic pulse. There’s an attention to detail found in the Californian newcomer’s work that is fast separating Xan from the heard, as beautifully summarized via this emotively evocative vocal offering.

The past couple of years has seen Hotel Garuda evolve far beyond the remits on in-demand remixers. Three original singles deep, ‘Till It Burns Out’ shows just how much the North American duo, known elsewhere as Manila Killa and Candle Weather, has evolved since singing with PRMD Music. Calling on the fine vocal work of Violet Skies, the track’s new age future bass influences blend perfectly with a standout vocal performance from the Welsh singer, adding to a sparing but strong run of original singles from the duo.

The soundtrack to our summer comes from Swedish artist Sportsman who just delivered his debut album “Neverland”, 11 tracks of glorious, dreamy and elegant sounding pop music with r’n’b and soul influences.

Up and coming Glasgow-based artist C Duncan released the follow-up album “The Midnight Sun” (via Fat Cat Records) to his acclaimed and Mercury Prize nominated debut album “Architect” back in October last year.

Now we get the digital-only “Like You Do” remix EP of two tracks taken from the album, we here at Discobelle can premiere the remix from London house producer KDA who puts his trademark spin on the track “Do I Hear” giving us a lush and beautiful version using the soothing piano line of the original combined with skittering drums and soft vocals that builds up to the euphoric sounding ending.

C Duncan kicks off his UK headline tour today, check out the tour dates and buy your tickets here.

Swedish artist Tove Styrke returns with dance-pop anthem “Say My Name” and that melody will stick in your brain after one listen.

“There’s a reason why so much music is about sex and love. It is linked to one’s worst and best experiences. I have not written about love before because I didn’t want to write another love song. But I have changed. I am tired of being angry, right now I just need to make music that makes me feel good.”
