British Grammy-winning producer Paul Epworth has worked with the likes of Adele, Coldplay, Bloc Party, Florence + The Machine, and Lana Del Rey. He released his new single “Love Galaxy” featuring Jay Electronica and Lil Silva about a month ago.

Now he unearths his Phones alter ego for a smooth and steadfast lo-fi house edit of the single track.

“Phones is back. The name I first released music under 17 years ago. Under the alias I remixed everyone from U2 to P Diddy between 2003 and 2013 and felt like time to bring the lo-fi house moniker back for a once over ‘Love Galaxy’.

Times have changed but Phones is still cheap.”

This week’s Discobelle mix is from Denver house producer option4 aka Brennen Bryarly. Brennen’s only been in the producing game for a year but his resume is already pretty impressive, boasting remixes by Bit Funk and support from the likes of THUMP and it’s no surprise why. Brennen has a unique ability for creating sonically textured house music that’s been noticed by Nurvous Records and us here at Discobelle. Check out his mix for us below, which includes two of his latest original mixes.

1) The Phantom – When I Found Out (Chaos in the CBD Remix)
2) Stimming – Window Shopping (Original Mix)
3) Bloc Party – Montreal (Ejeca Remix)
4) LKiD – Summer Haze (Original Mix)
5) Marlon Hoffstadt, Steve Bone – Girl (Original Mix)
6) HVOB – Jack (Nicone & Sascha Braemer Remix)
7) Amine Edge, Dance – They Call Me Jack (Chicks Luv Us & Medeew Remix)
8) Motez – Call My Name (Kry Wolf Remix)

10) Waze & Odyssey – Coz I Do (Urulu Remix)
11) Motez – Ride Roof Back (Club Edit)
12) Billy Kenny – Don’t Stop (Original Mix)

Kele Okereke is the frontman of Bloc Party and he just released his first solo album “The Boxer” (production duties coming from Hudson Mohawke and XXXChange) last week which was preceeded by the single “Tenderoni” in early June.

We have the remix from Canadian power duo Jokers Of The Scene (btw, happy belated Canada day you guys!) which doesn’t go as hard as their previous tracks but keeps the focus on a more minimal and melodic sound with fistpumping breaks – although they still keep it dark and moody – showing that they’ve spent alot of time in Berlin.

dadahack is the new cross-continent dance-electronica outfit. The name dadahack may be new to you but the duo behind the act are by no means in-experienced – the UK’s James Banbury and Swedish based producer, Pete Davis have production credits including Blackbox Recorder, Gwen Stefani, Wiley, Talvin Singh and Bloc Party.

The first material they are teasing out is a taste-maker EP called “Hellos”. A heady mix of house, nu-disco, electro and sleaze. The original track ‘Hello Dust’ features the new fashioned vocals of Hannah Robinson, which gets a remix treatment from the prolific Swedish producer, HÃ¥kan Libo.

Also on the package are three more laternate takes. A sensational 11-minute gritty electro workout from Freelance Hellraiser that never tires the ears (my personal favourite). Something a bit edgier from dadahack themselves – weapon of choice for Faithless DJ, Sister Bliss – and a relaxing skippy trip alternative version from Tranquility Bass.

We got an very exclusive Dadahacked Discobelle Edit of “Hello/Hello Dust” and the remix frÃ¥n HÃ¥kan Lidbo to share with you.

Here is a High Contrast remix of the title track ‘Kaleidoscope’ from Tiësto‘s new album of the same name – which also features collaborations with Calvin Harris, Kele Okereke from Bloc Party, Nelly Furtado, Tegan & Sara, Kianna from Tilly and The Wall, Emily Haines from Metric, and Jónsi from Icelandic post rock outfit Sigur Rós. It is without a doubt an album full of the most credible names and stars from all walks of the musical stratosphere at the moment…

If you want to check out the new video for his latest single “Escape Me” featuring C.C Sheffield, that will be in stores on November 23rd, then go here.

Since the success with my MGMT mix, Vice decided that they are going to continue to ask DJs to remix tracks from a certain artist. The second mix is with Bloc Party mixed by our friends in Top Billin. This is what Nenis from Top Billin had to say about the mix:

“We took on making a mix with that punk attitude, keeping the dynamics there so that it wouldn’t be too smooth operator mix, but have that rock feel in it. The tracks in the mix are all related in Bloc Party, influences and tracks that they’ve covered (like Prince) and of course kool tunes that are named block party. Hopefully you’ll dig it.”
