The latest single from Sydney based artist POOLCLVB is entitled “Freefall” (released via etc etc) and features the vocal offerings of Queensland singer Doolie. The track is a laid-back and carefree house jam that brims with warm sounding ‘90s nostalgia and has already seen support from A-Trak, Satin Jackets, Mike Mago, The Aston Shuffle etc.

We can offer up an exclusive premiere of the remix from UK house producer extraordinaire ZDS who supplies a pounding and dancefloor-ready house mix.

Los Angeles based producer Eric Sharp teams up with fellow Angeleno Give In – they’re both members of collective RIS Labs – for the superb new release “Version 3” which drops today via Understated Recordings. Remixes on the release comes from Tenova, Modus and Micah Smith.

We here at Discobelle have been following Eric Sharp for a couple of years and each release from him is bound to make our ears pop in a good way, we’re glad to premiere the original mix the track. “Version 3” goes deep and it can best be described as a “moody, ethereal, and melodic voyage” with chords that twist and turn throughout along with haunting bells, sweeping synths and full on basslines.

“I was exploring darker, heavier music while hanging out in the studio with my buddy Sean Patrick. We had been listening to a bunch of tunes from labels like Innervisions, Culprit, and Ghostly International. I wrote some yearning chords and melodies and began to develop the idea from there. Sean encouraged me to get really granular with the drum programming and write something with slow, subtle changes throughout. I got the track to a place where I liked it but didn’t think it was quite there yet. I sent it over to George, aka Give In, whom I’d collaborated with a few times. Rather than just give feedback, he got some ideas and ran with them. The bell sound that features throughout is actually George playing an Ikea bowl. He busted out some great countermelodies and synth sounds from his collection of analog gear and put on the finishing touches.” – Eric Sharp

Drum Thing (born Peter Carr) is a producer/drummer from East London who also happens to have pretty substantial drum collection that he regularly uses in his production work for the Drum Thing project.

The music he creates explores the darker side of percussive based house music, his latest release is for Trax Couture sublabel World Series – it’s four tracks of excellent, raucous sounding house music with a serious drive and of course mean percussion work.

Drum Thing is currently busy planning out a live setup where he can play percussion live along with his own productions.

It’s premiere time and we are stoked to see San Diego’s Sly Turner and Brazilian producer Nick Siarom join forces for their two-track When I Dance / Right Now EP. Turner is no stranger to the scene, with previous releases on labels like Audiophile XXL, Box of Cats, and support on releases by artists like Shiba San, Vanilla Ace, and Cut Snake. His return to the Psycho Disco imprint is undoubtedly a welcome one, as he and Nick Siarom combine for a duo of songs with strong bassline’s and bouncy, vibrant sound design. Punchy drums and a healthy dose of driving low end elements are prevalent throughout both A and B-sides of the EP, perfect to start your weekend off with.

When I Dance:

London based artist Lucy Mason had a great run last year with the release of her hit single “Hunger” that was followed up by her critically acclaimed debut EP and praise from the likes of The Independent, The Metro, Wonderland, The 405 and The Line Of Best Fit.

She just signed to Anti-Fragile and she has alot on the horizon for 2018, starting with the release of her new track “Save Your Breath” which you can listen to exclusively right here on Discobelle. The track itself is a beautiful and haunting dream pop gem.

She’s performing in Berlin on March 12th.

Brand new imprint Happy Camper Records (founded by Britta Arnold, unders and Noraj Cue) drops new single “Time To Waste” (pre-order here) courtesy of Bar25 legend, KaterBlau resident and Berlin mainstay Jake The Rapper. The American-born singer/dj/producer has been in Germany long enough now to understand the art of making an “Ohrwurm” (=earworm) – “Time To Waste” is one of those tunes that keeps resonating inside your head long after you’ve heard it. With its thumping beat, catchy vocals and roaring synthline, it’s bound to set any dancefloor ablaze.

Although many believe “Time To Waste” is a love song, Jake actually wrote it for his friends:

“I was at Kater one morning, getting tired of the cyclicality of raving, thinking I really ought to go home and kiss my wife, take care of my kids, get some sleep, get my life together and get some music done. Some friends wanted me to stay and keep dancing. I was like: ‘If I had any time to waste, I’d waste it with you. But I don’t so… Bye!'”

As is the custom in the Happy Camper family, a string of befriended producers have provided their own interpretations to the original track.

The stunning remix from acclaimed French outfit dOP that we here at Discobelle can exclusively premiere settles for no less than a mesmerizing synth combined with acid bleeps and an absolutely relentless and stomping bassline.

German duo Piemont consists of long-time friends Frederic and Chris, the pair first decided to make music
together back in 2007 and, since then, they have gone on to establish themselves in the techno scene with releases on acclaimed labels such as Monaberry, Lapsus Music, Glasgow Underground, Exploited, Definition Music and Toolroom.

Piemont’s sound can best be described as organic techno with a preference for ambient sounds, melodic lushness and abstract electronica.

Their new EP “Caress” will be released on their own imprint Moonless Air on Friday, March 2nd and we’ve got the premiere of the B-side track “Endless Sea” which is a rolling tech-house stomper complete with intricate percussion and eerie vocals.
