Discobelle premiere in the house!

From our friends in grooved out/funked up/disco outfit FSQ we received this alternate and extended DJ dub version of their remix for Los Angeles producer B Bravo. The original version of the remix appears on B Bravo’s “Paradise Remixed” album (also on the “Paradise Remixed” compilation are remixes from XL Middleton, Simbad, Pillowtalk, Captain Planet, Teeko, JaĆ«l and Grandfeather) which was recently released via the Bastard Jazz label.

The original version of the track is a super smooth affair but the FSQ crew put in a very different “Caribbean Disco” sounding remix of the track with member GKoop spearheading the production of the remix. GKoop has been busy this year as the co-writer of platinum-selling hip-hop hits like “It’s a Vibe” by 2 Chainz and “Bad and Boujee” by Migos. Fortunately, he took time out of his hectic schedule for FSQ and brought in drummer Marquisse Moore and pianist Graham Richards to give the remix a strong dose of Borinquen flavor and highlights the percussion we peppered the mix with: woodblocks, congas, bongos, and clappers in order to make everyone dance.

Let the beat play on and enjoy this special exclusive FSQ “Caribbean Disco Dub” of B Bravo’s “Freak It”!
