NYC based producer/dj and Fool’s Gold Records family member Sammy Bananas has been a staple here at Discobelle ever since we started out some 10+ years ago, mainly because he always keeps it quirky and fun. His debut EP for fellow New Yorkers in boutique label Bastard Jazz is slated for a release tomorrow March 15th and the “Piananana EP” showcases his signature funky and piano based club tracks mixed in with more late night action in a sweaty and packed basement kind of sound.

The track “Non-Stop” (currently the #12 bestseller on Traxsource) is in its original form a hypnotic and bass heavy stomper that Parisian producer Hugo LX transforms into an equally hypnotic track but with a more reserved and almost loungelike feeling.

Australian trio The Goods are back with a new single called “Faster” and we’re stoked to have the premiere. “Faster” is the first look at their forthcoming Make Your Move EP, a sound described as hip-hop, space funk, and soul. The Goods, building off a massive couple of years that saw them feature in top-tier mediums like Complex, MTV, and Vice, are set to drop their full EP via Brooklyn-based imprint Bastard Jazz this Friday, April 13th. A dynamic full LP is rumored to be on the way, with the trifecta of artists tapping into their roots as improving musicians and live performers.

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, Jaël 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”!
