New York’s Tei Shi follows up her monster single “Bassically” with a more downtempo track “Go Slow” this week. “Go Slow” isn’t a “hit” in the traditional sense, but the track carries many more subtle shining qualities. Skittering synths, syncopated percussion and Tei Shi’s delicate vocals wrap this track in a smooth indie dance embrace.


Dutch producer Beauriche teams up with Creamers to unleash a high tempo funky disco house record “Disco Ish.” Available as a free download, “Disco Ish” already counts the support of Hardwell, Tiesto, and Mark Knight to name a few. Let the horns in the track take a hold of you and press play below.


Future R&B artist Roman Austin has released a slow burning soul brimming track “Church (Rollin’)” that is dripping with sex appeal. The track is a tribute track to a weekly Sunday event in Sacramento, California dubbed by the locals as “Church” with Soul/Funk/Classics – take a listen below!


The mighty Octopus Recordings has unearthed a special talent to add to it’s impressive roster of Techno droids with up and coming producer, BARBUTO. Born Christian Barbuto, he’s positioned himself as a staple in the Austin dance community as a respected DJ and event promoter and even though he’s contributed tunes and EP’s for labels like Bush and Raise Recordings, his first solo outing for Octopus is certainly a high point. The “Arcana EP” features two original cuts from BARBUTO and showcases his bottom heavy, driving Techno flair and penchant for moody textures and subterranean atmospheres.

The title cut is seven minutes of relentless, pounding kicks, cavernous reverbs and one muscular bass riff….the aneurysm-inducing breakdowns are nothing to take lightly either. On the b-side, we have “Twilight Imperium,’ an equally sinewy affair thats dripping in epic sweeps and dubby chord stabs. Overall, an impressive outing and certainly one to watch as 2015 unfolds… I can only imagine whats next from BARBUTO and Octopus.

Available 4/6/15


We consider Swedish producer/dj MRTN to be part of the Discobelle fam, he has spent a big chunk of the past decade dj’ing at clubs/festivals/showcases across most of the Northern hemisphere and also running the succesful blog turned label Stockholm Beat Connection. In 2011 he started producing together with POMP (Robyn’s drummer) under the moniker MRTN and they’ve racked up a string of strong releases, most notably their 2011 track “Slow” and the 2014 release “Illusion.

We’re proud to present you with this excellent housed up mixtape from MRTN, which should enable you all to get in that weekend spirit albeit a day early.
