Every now and then a song jumps out at me, and as soon as I hear it I feel an escape from reality. The latest release from Dallerium “Lost in a Moment,” does just that. The duo from Croatia seem to channel influence from the likes of Disclosure, or Rufus Du Sol. Their new single has euphoric sound  elements matched with an upbeat feeling of hope.


UK duo Disclosure returns with brand-new single “Ultimatum” for the summer featuring Malian musician, Fatoumata Diawara.

“Sorry it’s been a while – we have been missing you all immensely, so we wanted to share with you something we’ve been working on now the sun is shining and the trees are green. A few months ago, we stumbled across an amazing female vocalist named Fatoumata Diawara. While digging through her discography we discovered this beautiful sample and started messing around, having fun and experimenting with it. The result is our new song, ‘Ultimatum’.”

“It’s the perfect blend of bands like SG Lewis and Disclosure, and rock bands like Doves or The Growlers. For me that Detroit sounding heavy bass and guitar blends really well with garage house. Crazy I know…The song is about being desperate and obsessed with someone you will never get and who you know is the opposite of good for you. Like all unhealthy habits, you falsely believe that this will be your saviour and get you out of your miseries. Like your state of mind when you´re alone with a couple of drinks inside you ‪at 3am, in a disturbed place or state of mind yet weirdly hopeful.”

Julian Shamou AKA Detroit’s Filthiest AKA DJ Nasty is a Detroit legend when it comes to ghetto tech with a career spanning more than 20 years and a highly innovative approach to club music. British duo Disclosure sampled his 2002 ghetto hit “Pass Out” on their recent single “Bang That”.

It’s now 2016 and he’s still on top of his game with the Moveltraxx release “Underground Sound Of Detroit” which is a booming 3 track EP full of dirty beats & crispy synths, such as the track “Laugh Now Cry Later” which is a guaranteed party starting tune.

Disclosure’s highly anticipated album “Caracal” doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. The latest single “Magnets” which features Lorde, is getting the proper remix treatment, first with A-Trak and now with the UK producer Jon Hopkins. The track is a distorted 7-minutes of furious buzzing, pounding synthesizers and heavy vocal cuts, in fact you hardly hear them at all. Listen to Hopkins’ sinister rework above.

The Norwegian duo better known as Loveless have been tearing up dancefloors all across Norway, Scandinavia and Europe with their brand of UK garage/r’n’b influenced tracks that echoes with an air of Scandinavian melancholia, they’re now getting ready to drop their new EP “Relationships” and we’re of course extremely happy to have them onboard for the Discobelle mix series.

Their mix is like the perfect companion for when you’re preparing to head out, starting things off smooth with Justin Bieber and then pops off with tracks from the likes of The Streets, Jamie XX, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Disclosure, SBTRKT, Jammer etc. along with a couple of special treats.
