LOKATT is a techno/pop duo that consists of Stockholm-based sisters Nina and Johanna (who have a background as folk-pop/indie duo Piroth. Back in 2013, using their very own Oma’s Studio, they started producing techno music with pop influences from their own Oma’s Studio. In 2015 they released their acclaimed debut EP “Karg”, which was followed by the “Samoa EP”, in 2017. They also run the label Oma Gusti with releases by top name artists such as Harald Björk, Studio Barnhus, Nathan Fake, Missincat, The Land Below and Clara Moto.

Their new single “Me and AI” will be released tomorrow May 23rd via their own label Oma Gusti and it’s a steadfast melancholic sounding track with a spaced out techno melody and fleeting vocals.

The track deals with the relationship between man and machine and represents a metaphor for the human challenges in expressing emotion. “Me And AI” is a duet between the voices of LOKATT and their interpretation of the voice of AI.

UK producer/dj Jamie Paton is one half of Cage & Aviary but also makes music under his own name, he’s often referred to in the same circles as Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J. Fairplay and his version of electronic dance music is described as “leftfield techno” or “slowmotion house” and is filled with a suggestive, repetetive sound.

“Disk Memories” is released tomorrow January 25th and it’s his second release on Höga Nord Rekords, the EP is described as follows:

“”Disk Memories” is barren electronic music for the Brexit generation. Paton has established a dystopic electronic sound that aims straight at your frontal lobe, burns in your bones, and projects a lost Europe’s anxiety on the grey London skies. The music breathes of the cold 1980’s, a time of crisis in England’s history and a vibe to be recognize in today’s society: right-wing winds once again blows hard over the British Isles and Jamie Paton’s music catches the insecurity the wind carries with it.”

NYC-based legend Joeski has been at the forefront in his hometown for decades now, on his brand new “Mind Funk” EP which will be released via Dirtybird Records on Friday November 23rd, you can hear just how skilled a producer he is. Joeski is all about building layers of sound fused with drums and rhythms that sit perfectly together.

We here at Discobelle are able to premiere the B-side track “Tha RMX”, which is built on a rolling and steadfast wobbly bass, superbly crisp high hats and hypnotic vocals that together forms an exquisite slab of housed up awesomeness.

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
