Yes, yes kiddies…it’s that time of the week were we unleashing fresh sounds and fresh beats with our latest outing in the fast lane of global premieres (echo, echo, echo, echo)! This tasty installment comes courtesy of fresh-faced French producer, Ethyène and our friends over at the Kolour LTD imprint. The young, Lyon-based fellow has been a rising talent on our radar with a serious list of accolades already attributed to his alias. Ethyène caught my attention when he dropped his debut release, the “Obsessions EP” which also launched the Australian imprint, Kyoku Records. With his third solo release on the horizon, the “Clubs, Rubs + Dubs EP” for Kolour LTD, plus contributions to the burgeoning Moonrise Hill Material, which he co-runs, we can expect nothing but good things in the future. Now, to get to the track!

“Time Won’t Change” is a funky, mid-tempo groover that features lovely, organic percussion and shimmering sample/filter work. The hip-shaking claps introduce visions of Soul Train dance floors and feel good party vibes. A tickling bass line carries us forward while a cheeky appropriation of an SOS Band vocal creates a catchy refrain. Dropping later this week, February 24th, keep them peepers peeled and pre-order below.

Dropping in for this weeks installment of the Discobelle mix is Shreveport, Louisiana based producer, Walter Jones. Mr. Jones has been composing music since the late Seventies and has amassed a solid catalog of work spanning multiple decades and genres. His heavily lauded debut on Westbound Music, “All God’s Children,” cemented his place in modern dance circles and subsequent outings for Permanent Vacation, Supersoul and DFA only went on to expand his audience.

We’re super stoked to present this new mixtape from the man… an impressive, 80 minute foray into deep and groovy sounds, mixed live and offered to you here. Stay up and keep your eyes peeled for his upcoming 12″ ep on the Whiskey Pickle label.

Pre-order Here.

Folamour has been setting the stereos ablaze here at the Discobelle offices since he burst onto our radar last year with an incredible missive for the new minted, Make Believe Disco. Since then, the French beatsmith has been hard at work with his hands in not one, but two labels; Moonrise Hill Material and For Heaven Use Only. FHUO is a solo operation, helmed by Folamour, nee` Bruno, and here we feature a super jazzy cut from the label’s forthcoming, second release.

A split disc that sees Folamour on the a-side and label mate, Parviz, handle the b-side, the “Alerte A Babylone EP” bears all the hallmarks that have come to be associated with Bruno and his ilk. Chunky drums, bulky synthesizers and deftly manipulated samples all blend together to create some lovely, deep house jams. On “Very First Touch,” live drum loops and crowd noises are greeted by ethereal pads while Rhodes riffs and squawking trumpets filter in and our of this uptempo groove.

Italian duo, DJ Rocca & N2B drop in for UK edit label, To Rack & Ruin, with a quad-tracker of scalpel works. Here, we premiere “Mister Cheryl,” a boogie-laced, house stomper that features chunky loops and lovely, vocal chants. Things kick off subdued and hypnotic before opening up to full riffs of the sample source. Horn stabs, janglely guitars and syrupy grooves greet us next before launching into an energetic barrage of chopped vocals and robotic drum programming. This track deftly walks the line between boogie banger and peak time house tackle… a feat that is rarely achieved and unique when executed as such.

Ah, yes….always an exciting moment when Razor-N-Tape promo’s land in your inbox! This latest from MFR Collective, an anonymous, super duo of legendary producers comes correct with some lovely business and we instantly jumped at the A-side, “Your Love Is Saved.” Rock-steady rhythms and percussion riffs greet you at the onset, joined shortly by a groove laden bass line and dub flourishes. Over the next seven minute, a gospel tinged, dance floor work out unfolds punctuated with drum breaks and organ solos.

Danny Worrall, aka 80’s Child, head honcho at the renowned, Masterworks Music, drops in for the latest in our exclusive mix series with vol. 147. Having positioned himself on one of the upper most echelons of the global, disco edit scene over the last several years, it was only natural for the formation of his own label to occur. Under the Masterworks banner, Mr. Worrall has hosted the likes of Dr. Packer, Pontchartrain, Closed Paradise, Ziggy Phunk and many more.

Expect heavy doses of funk, soul, disco and deep vibes throughout this hour long mix… DIG IT!

Straight out the gate comes upstart, D.C. imprint, Better Listen Records. Founded by local DJ/promoter/blogger, Martin Miguel Fernandez, the wee label puts it’s best foot forward with an inaugural release from City Fly cohort, The Last Trip To Gandahar and his “Echoes Of Paradise EP.” Here, we take the A1 for an exclusive premiere in “Bartz Groove,” a jazzy, piano driven cut that blends saxophone loops and vocal refrains to a lovely result.

Hypnotic vibes abound on all four of the EP cuts which should be available for preview coming soon. From what we’ve learned of the label, 2017 has some big things in store and we’re super excited to watch this imprint grow into one of our new favorites.

Deep and sensuous vibes abound on this fresh premiere from Mancunican producer and Secret Reels cohort, Loz Goddard. The man just dropped his forthcoming “Sunset Vista EP” for Quintessentials on us to cherry-pick a premiere track and we couldn’t resist the loveliness of “Flavour.” Give us a funky bassline and Rhodes piano and we’re in heaven…obviously, this tune features both prominently along side some soulful, Gladys Knight-tinged vocals and a shuffling, low-slung rhythm.
