Oslo based production/dj duo Loveless (Eirik Tillerli and Filip Kollsete) might have only released one official EP but they have already managed to gather both domestic and international attention with frequent rotation on Norwegian national radio, featured on BBC Radio 1 Xtra’s “Record of the Week” along with support from big blogs such as Earmilk, Complex UK, Hypetrak and Selected.

They’re now gearing up for a busy end of the year starting with today’s release of new melancholic, housed up dance pop single “Bad 4 U” which features the vocal offerings of Stockholm based artist Awa (who won the Swedish X-Factor at only 15). She then finished school, released two singles – the latest one called “Obvious” which got attention in the UK. Loveless tells us: “We loved her song ‘Obvious’ and her voice, so we contacted her on a trip to Stockholm. We loved the vibe with her and [songwriter] Leslie Tay, and “Bad 4 U” is a result of that.”

It’s that scary time of the year again, we compiled three Halloween mixes that we’ve enjoyed today. Happy Halloween everyone.

First, we have Los Angeles producer RL Grime with a swagfilled Halloween mix to end all halloween mixes, bump it and get into your costume.

“Happy Halloween everyone..picked out some of my favorite spooky tracks in celebration of today. (Featuring The Legend RL Stine in the beginning)”

London producer Deadboy jumps on the Halloween mix theme.

“Deadboy’s 42 minute soundtrack to Halloween, this is the dystopian nightmare where heavily bearded disco svengalis, codeine addled rappers and unbalanced London grime producers are stalking you on the night bus home.”

And last but certainly not least, Diplo wants to join in on the fun, together with Philly producer/dj System D-128 with a massive 3 hour Halloween special mix on BBC Radio 1 Extra.

Tracklists after the jump.

Unknown To The Unknown is London based label that really started to shine in 2011 with a series of top notch releases.

They’re now about to kick off 2012 with the release of single “All Junglist” from BBC Radio 1 Xtra’s DJ Q and we here at Discobelle got the exclusive on the video for the title track which is a fastpaced, mad affair of 2-step/UK garage.
