For the avid reader of Discobelle, the name DJ Wool should be associated with superb dj sets (he’s a former DMC champion) and seriosuly bumping tracks on labels such as Top Billin, Plant Music, Discobelle Records etc. along with being a member of popular indie/dance duo The Glass. He’s also a maestro in the mixing/production room having worked with the likes of REM, Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries), Spoek Mathambo, Todd Terry, Far East Movement, Herbert Gronemeyer, Jagz Kooner, Howie B, Andy Rourke (The Smiths), Tittsworth and many more.
After spending time in New York and Berlin, Dublin born DJ Wool has relocated to Northern California where he’s working as an audio engineer and has also been hard at work in his studio with new album “A Life In Breaks” which will be released on October 21st via NYC label Dither Down.
This absolutely astounding and warm, organic sounding mix for us sees him exploring breaks, minimal and ambient AKA “Ambi-Rock” and it’s inspired by what made him start his music career back in the 90’s.
We hope you didn’t miss the latest release on Discobelle Records, the summer smash “Gone” from Northern Sweden duo Caotico, a massive track that leans on a heavy, pulsating UK garage sounding beat interspersed with robotic vocals a la Daft Punk turning this into a dancefloor bomb.
BONUS: Peep the video too which was premiered by our friends over at Gotta Dance Dirty.
Today we here in Sweden celebrate summer solstice and we here at Discobelle thought that it would be fitting to give away the stellar Franskild remix of “Gone” – the UK garage influenced summer smash by Swedens best kept secret Caotico that we released a month ago.
The Stockholm/Copenhagen based duo Franskild churns out a housey remix thick with Scandinavian melancholia, the vocals of the original are turned into a haunting affair all while the deep beat is sprinkled with hi-hats and desolate bleeps.
Make sure to check out the rest of the EP via the Soundcloud player below and then grab it from Beatport.
Northern Sweden duo Caotico are releasing their superb new single “Gone” right here on Discobelle Records today (May 19th), it’s a massive track that leans on a pulsating UK garage sounding beat interspersed with robotic vocals a la Daft Punk turning this into a dancefloor bomb.
Today is the day of the first release of 2015 on Discobelle Records, French producer Maarius drops his second EP on our label (the first one was released back in 2013 under his previous moniker D.Fine).
On “Restart From The Bottom” we get five tracks of elegant and vibesfilled futuristic r’n’b with lush samples that could be played both in the confines of your home and in the club.
The title track is 6+ minutes of straight forward, steady grooving house with an ominous undertone of dark keys that are polarized by a cut up soulful vocal sample.
“Lose It” is perhaps more of a dj tool with an unresistable vocal sample urging the listener to “lose it”, this is will most likely be the end result when the track is played for an unsuspecting dancefloor during peak hours.
The EP ends with “Right Things” which has already seen plenty of love and established itself in many dj sets. Essentially an uplifting and deep piano house track, there’s plenty of piano stabs in here interspersed with the melodic vocals. This is one for the summer parties!
Originally from Australia but now residing in Los Angeles, Craig Williams is an up and coming producer that had a fantastic 2013 with a release together with Louisahhh!!! of Bromance along with a series of choice tracks/remixes and he’s someone that you should be paying close attention to.
His “Saw Throat” EP was just released by Aussie label Club Sweat (sublabel of Sweat It Out) and it brandishes two tracks of vibesfilled, deep and dark techno – the EP has already seen support from big players such as Claude VonStroke, Crookers, Yolanda Be Cool, Sinden, Astronomar, Beataucue, Nick Catchdubs, RUFUS and more.
He’s also releasing an EP together with Charles I with us here at Discobelle Records in the beginning of April, be sure to check that out and be prepared to be blown away.
