New York based dj/producer DJ Ayres is a staple in the US dance music scene – playing with the biggest and the best for a better part of the past decade. Ayres along with his comrades in The Rub have been a part of the Discobelle family since day one thus we’re very glad to be able to present you with this exclusive mixtape that he put together for us.

On “Perfect Lovers”, he goes all in with a full on 80’s electro/disco mode that already have us and should have you dancing in no time.

Short for Gangsta Legendary Crisis, GLC is a Chicago-based rapper who’s been featured on two of Kanye West’s albums and today dropped his EP Fellowship and Congregate on T&A. Even though GLC is from the windy city, he’s got a flow that’s reminiscent of southern hip hop – laidback and effortlessly smooth.

The EP has pulled together a production group that bass dreams are made of. The title track and my favorite, “Fellowship and Congregate” is produced by Diplo’s audio engineer, Derek Allen, and has a little bit of a dubstep wobble and a seriously nasty beat. “Angry Birds,” produced by 1/2 of T&A DJ Ayres, cleverly samples the iPhone game by the same name while the lyrics draw a parallel between angry birds and well, angry women. The third track is produced by Nacey, hailing from the DC/Baltimore area and also my current place of residence. “I Can’t Honor That” is a laidback and piano tinged track that’s meant to be listened to while cruising down the street with the windows down and car stereo up. The final track produced by Lunice has a cascading synth line and quantifies GLC’s style of “ism,” which he describes as “an un-canny macking ability, vision and perspective on your life and how to grow and develop.”

The EP has already gotten the support of A-Trak who describes GLC as “the only rapper of this generation carrying the torch for what legends like the Geto Boys and Eightball & MJG did before him.” GLC is definitely giving the Chicago hip hop scene new recognition with this EP that’s produced to perfection. Grab Fellowship and Congregate on Beatport.

DJ P.O.L.Style shoot us an e-mail with some of his recent work, residing in Tokyo but he grew up in Glasgow. Back in 2003 P.O.L.Style and the members of Dress 2 Sweat, Wireblock and Stuff Records, along with a couple of other friends, formed the event Numbers and invited guests such as DJ Funk, Diplo, A-Trak, Modeselektor, Ghostface Killah, Kid Sister, Squarepusher and Autechre. Numbers was also ranked among ‘Best Club Events of the Year 2008’ in MixMag! He’s wrecking the clubs over in Tokyo at the moment, about to drop stuff on NY label T&A Records (operated by Tittsworth & DJ Ayres) and also on Dress 2 Sweat Records. On top of that, he’s running the Numbers party in Tokyo and recently started a new party called Tonight together with Vice Magazine and Turntable Lab Japan (this friday DJ Ayres is flying in to throw down one of his patented party sets at La Fabrique)

P.O.L.Style was kind enough to give us a bunch of his tracks to post and he comes out hard on these – incorporating horns, chopped up vocals and mean beats to create fast paced club stompers. First out is a b-more houseish remix of the Gaines track “BBBDance” that features French rapper Teki Latex, then we have the tracks “Get Yo Handz Up” and “I Hope U” which showcases his different styles. The former is on that wobbly bass fidgety tip while the latter is more of a straight up b-more track. Watch out for his upcoming singles on T&A and Dress 2 Sweat since they’re guaranteed to destroy!

BOOM!

Emynd & Young Chris dropping some serious heat with the free digital only remix EP for their anthem track “We Don’t Give A F*ck”. They brought along some of their friends such as Eli Escobar, DJ Ayres, Nadastrom and Cousin Cole for the ride. We had a hard time choosing one of the remixes, but we’re going with the Cousin Cole remix that throws on a horn sample giving the track more of a soulful feel although still maintaining that club action. Grab the whole EP over at Crossfaded Bacon.
