Swedish/Berlin-based duo The Ghost Of Helags drop their first single of 2018, the absolutely beautiful and dreamlike pop/trance track “Anthem (we came from the stars)” was released last week. The track is an ode to the German urban sanctuary that is Berlin where a lot of artists, dropouts and ghosts came to search for their Northern star.

Earlier this month, The Hacker & Gesaffelstein’s ZONE Records gave us a new release from David Carretta, one of the most influential electronic music artists to come out of France.

Featuring 5 tracks of hard edged electro, analogue techno and retro-futuristic synth workouts, David Carretta’s “Land of Sin” shows that even more than 20 years after his debut, Carretta is still at his creative best.

Today Discobelle is excited to premiere the uptempo single “Smash” from “Land of Sin,” a track that draws a parallel between classic early ‘90s Trance and early ‘00s Electroclash, bringing new life back to both genres.

David Carretta – Land of Sin EP Tracklist:
1. Land of Sin
2. Smash
3. Transcontrol
4. System
5. Station to Station

Johan Agebjörn and Sally Shapiro are a mysterious Swedish duo known for their icy, haunting ambient disco soundscapes. While it’s hard to top Johan’s 2011 stunner “Watch the World Go By,” this inspired remix of Frankfurt trance pioneers Jam & Spoon may be his most captivating production yet. The humble techno wizard from Lund, who works by day as an accountant for a green non-profit, conjures a mesmerizing flurry of synth and drums to accompany original vocals from 90s songstress Plavka. Meandering jazz-fusion piano fills and Sally’s otherworldly backing harmonies help lift the track into the cosmic jam stratosphere.

“Find Me” appears alongside tracks from Holy Ghost!, Glass Candy, Young Galaxy and Lindstrøm on the duo’s new remix album Sweetened, out now on Paper Bag Records.
