We go way back with Dave Nada and Tittsworth and they’ve both been staples here at Discobelle HQ with a steadfast stream of quality releases throughout the last decade, this of course means that we’re extra delighted to be able to share their brand new collaboration track “Slo Ur Roll”, a dark and moody and absolutely stellar club track with a mid track tempo change.

The track is taken from Los Angeles based label Understated Recordings’ debut compilation release “All of U|S, VOL / 001” which is released tomorrow November 9th, the compilation features various flavours of house and tech-house from the likes of LA Riots, Lupe Fuentes, Anakim, Modus, Grensta, 28mm, Thomas Garcia, Nonfiction, Roy Wilkins, Missy B Joluca, WhereIsFenix, Lok N Key, Michael Fam, and Ucros.

“Dave and I have been hard at work preparing for the launch of our label, Hermanito. As a result we were introduced to Andrew via Create/Label Engine, where we became fans of Understated. From there I started work on this song specifically for the label. It i came together pretty quickly and Dave’s well known tendency to cut tempo came through once again (but maybe the song is also about aging ravers) haha? Excited to be a part of Understated fam and had a blast at my first event recently– really dope downtown warehouse party vibes. Even semi-effectively slowed my roll that night– made it in before sunrise!” – Tittsworth

Last friday British artist Little Boots dropped the remix package for her “Burn” EP (via London label On Repeat Records), the package includes remixes of all the tracks from her “Burn” EP done by 5 amazing female producers; Anna Prior, Alinka, C. Love, Ela Minus and Flor Capistran.

The collection also includes this spectacular extended and housed up edit of the track “Shadows” from Brazilian/Austrian producer/dj Joyce Muniz.

UK electronic artist Attaque (Dominic Gentry) prepares for the release of his upcoming album with brand new track “Now I’m Gone” that features rising Bristol singer/producer Sola and is accompanied by a stunning deep tech house sounding remix courtesy of Frankfurt based master Lauer.

“I first heard Sola when Oscar at Monokrome played me her demos, I really loved the stripped down production and emotive honesty of the lyrics. I love what she has done to Now I’m Gone, it’s added another level to the emotiveness I was trying to encapsulate. “I first came across Lauer while at Lost Village when I Shazamed his remix of Misunderstood by Theo Kottis. I’ve been a fan of all of his work since so when it came to getting a remix, for ‘Now I’m Gone’ it had to be him”.

A brief hiatus again but just in time for summer the Discobelle mix series returns in full force.

Tenova is an up and coming Los Angeles based tech-house producer/dj who has seen support from the likes of Pete Tong, Gorgon City, Claptone, Mark Knight, Roger Sanchez and many more. His releases are featured on labels such as Toolroom and during 2018 we will hear much more from the dynamic producer/dj on labels such as Elrow/Cr2, Incorrect Music, Stashed etc.

His top tier mix for us here at Discobelle is one hour of grooved out and bumping tech-house that is perfect to rock in order to get into that summer mood.

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

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.
