We here at Discobelle got the scoop on the exclusive premiere of track “Magia” taken from the upcoming Local Suicide And Curses EP, which will be out tomorrow Friday March 22nd (500 hand stamped 12″ vinyl only) via UK label Tusk Wax.

Tusk Wax 28 is a collaboration between NYC born, Berlin-based artist Curses and the otherworldly “techno-disco” Greek-German outfit Local Suicide. The pairing seems like a match made in heaven, especially seeing as both artists are known for exploring the darker side of dance music.

“Magia” kicks off the release and it’s a steadfast and seductive piece of slo-mo disco with spaced out synths and eerie vocals that wouldn’t be out of place in an 80’s horror movie.

(thee) Mike B is based out of Los Angeles and he is one of those dj’s dj whereas pretty much an all star cast of dj’s/producers gives him well deserved praise, he also happens to be one of Discobelle’s oldest friends.

Now, he has teamed up with Eevo to breathe new life into the classic The Avalanches track “Frontier Psychiatrist” which we can premiere on Discobelle, their chopped up take features a frantic, housed up beat and lingering horn samples throughout this absolute banger which has already been praised by the likes of Nick Catchdubs, Curses, Astronomar, Tony Quattro, Classixx, Ardalan, Oliver Dollar and Switch etc.

Lithuanian project Roe Deers is comprised of Liudas and Oskaras, two close friends who have released on the likes of Magic Feet, Omnidisc and Nein Records. Their new release is entitled “Fade Away” and will be released by French label La Belle Records on October 6th.

Vocals on the EP comes from Berlin-based Curses, who you all should know as the dark and romantic moniker of New Yorker Luca Venezia who mixes italo, electronic music and rock and roll into thrilling new sounds.

We can premiere the B-side track “To the End” which is a wild ride of clever effects, metallic hits and wobbly bass to create a dark and energetic stomper.

Jorge Balarezo graces the Discobelle Mix with the latest transmission in our series. He’s laced a 60 minute adventure of deep and moody Techno selections from his home base of New York City, where he lives and works as a member of Curses’ “Safer At Night” collective. Jorge dropped in earlier this season with a stellar debut release for the young imprint, which we covered HERE, and he’s currently working on his latest passion project, COMFORT Radio, which kicks off early next month.

With an emphasis on revisiting Techno Music culture in the New York area, COMFORT Radio will strive to tap the hot bed of burgeoning talent and unify it’s multi- faceted lifestyle through heavily curated selections of photography, interviews and mixtapes. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for that and expect installments from Total Fitness, Peter Fonda, Volvox and Balarezo himeself.

Jorge’s mix for us delivers a diverse cross section of his Techno stylings: something melodic, something hard; something old, something new… essentially, what you’d expect to find at one of his many late night DJ sets across NY. Added bonus: peep this exclusive taste of Curses’ forthcoming tune for Safer At Night, “God In The Dust!”

Hot off the presses from burgeoning, NYC collective, Safer At Night, is the debut EP from Peruvian-born producer, Jorge Balarezo. A shimmering and unique debut, the “Influence EP” fits perfectly with Safer At Nights penchant for blending experimental Techno and dance-floor friendly House with the added offering of at least one ambient soundscape per release. The titular tune utilizes chirpy, stuttering percussion, ominous bass swells and subterranean sampling to create an eerie, otherworldly tapestry of tangled beauty.

“Altitude” steps up next to announce it’s intentions of wreaking havoc on dance floors… which it does oh so well. The combination of rocksteady rhythms and pumping bass riffs instill visions of late night gatherings in burned out buildings… post-apcolyptic party goers beating broken slabs of concrete and steel with their jack-booted soles. The ethereal mysticism of “Tropic of Capricorn,” Balarezo’s ambient contribution, draws the EP to it’s close with six minutes of swelling pads, cooing seagulls and cavernous reverbs dripping in dramatic synth lines and mechanical textures.

The “Influence EP” is available now on Beatport, buy it HERE.
