We have an exciting premiere with this video for the lush sounding remix from Stockholm based producer/artist Sailor & I of Russian duo Sex Of Insects’ new single “Om Nah Omn” (will be released on April 13th via Ylotana Music, additional remixes comes from dOP, ONO and Anatoly Ylotana.

The video is filled with psychedelic, crazy costumes along with dreamlike, tripped out visuals to illustrate what could be the soundtrack of your dreams.

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.
