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.

London based artist Elderbrook has his recent single “Woman” remixed by fellow UK head ZDS – the remix EP for the single will drop via acclaimed label Kobalt on September 1st – who gives us an absolute monster of remix that manages to balance the soulful vocals with hypnotic percussions and an irresistible techhouse groove.

New UK based label Strangelove heads out of the gate at breakneck speed March 3rd with their smashing inaugural release “A Little Weird EP” which comes from prolific SF-based producer, Anabatic Records founder, Dirtybird affiliate and Discobelle fam Worthy.

The title track is offered right here as a Discobelle exclusive premiere and it’s an hypnotic, acid bleeped out, bass filled techy monster that will leave clubs in shambles.

Australian producer Swick returns to NLV Records with the single “Offside” that incorporates ambient synthwork, hypnotic vocals courtesy of Swick’s younger sister and a full on dancefloor assault.
