I love it when people flip unsuspecting classics into unfiltered dancefloor weapons. Columbian sleeping giant Y4NN takes a stab at giving Timberlake a bit of Latin soul and swagger that transports the track into new and frankly scintillating terrain. The cosigns from Souelction are great and all, but this young producer appears to be blazing the trail by not overthinking the process and letting the energy do all the talking.

Up and coming Brazilian duo Balako just released their debut EP “Hora De Balako” for the fine people over at the excellent Greco Roman label and we here at Discobelle are extremely pleased that they wanted to contribute to our mix series.

Balako AKA Diogo Strausz and Rodrigo are producers and multi instrumentalists out of Rio De Janeiro. The pair has a knack for mixing up rare samples with their own unreleased, genre-spanning edits with their styles ranging from techno and house to salsa and carimbo and to blending that with ’70s disco/funk in order to create something both retro and current which their mix for us is a smashing testament to.

Last week NYC based and Miami born producer/dj Jubilee dropped her debut album “After Hours” (via Mixpak) and the album has been a staple here at the Discobelle HQ ever since we received the promo, taking us a on a ride through a glittering and sundrenched Miami and through the grittiness of New York along with all the musical genres defining the scenes in and inbetween the two cities. Jubilee takes us from Miami bass to grime to dancehall to salsa to rave etc. all rolled into one fantastic, sweatsoaked hybrid tropical sound.

Merry Christmas!
