Remember that 1990 slow grooving sex jam “Wicked Game” by rock musician Chris Isaak? I mean, HOW COULD YOU FORGET #AMIRITE?? Well lucky for you, Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo (or as I like to call them, Chris Squared) has turned out a great edit of the track that’s available as a free download.

Here’s the backstory about how Chris Squared came about – on one rainy day in Birmingham, Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo met in the studio and produced this edit of Wicked Games. Once they got a hold of the acapella, they knew they had to build a track around it. Everything was recorded using live instruments and they used no samples except the acapella of course. The result is this “Lush” “vacant but absorbent” edit that is something even your mother could dance too.

Editorial Records CEO, Dave Allison, dons his Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee moniker for a healthy pack of scalpel works in the form of his latest digi EP, ‘Cookies N’ Cream.’ Kickin’ things off are the house party jams of ‘Up 2 Get Down’ with it’s confident strut and relentless horns that, reluctantly, give way to the chill-out vibes ‘Boogie Box.’ ‘Rollin On (and On)’ whacks things up a bit, like a muscular funk train headed straight to Memphis where we find the ‘Groove Catcher,’ which utterly burns the disco down with it’s snappy vocal chants and a barrage of percussion. Wrapping things up nicely is ‘Givin’ Ya Up,’ which is the stand out for me here with it’s Nu-Diso production elements, amped up drums and psychedelic flourishes… a real winner!

Simon Iddol takes a step away from writing about music to become a music maker with a remix of Cerrone’s “Supernature.” Simon is no stranger to music production, having been on Hungary’s DJ circuit for several years. This edit of Cerrone is a tribute to the artist and here, Simon’s added subtle changes, maintaining the original ambient integrity of the track. “Supernature” is a love affair for me, this song saved my life many times,” says Simon. “This time I wanted to do something really true to the original, to show the eternal beauty of the song.”

As a special treat, you can grab the free download of the track but be quick about it – it’s only available to the first 100 people!

New York edit dons, Razor-N-Tape Records, release their 7th installment of 12″, scalpel versions and it’s as smooth as Bond, James Bond. With Hamburg based producer, Lovebirds, providing three fantastic cuts to satisfy your boogie needs, we kick things off with ‘Funk So Pretty,’ an extended re-rub of The Purple One’s most ‘erotic’ cut to date.

Next up is the heavy swung romp of ‘Free (Lovebirds Beautiful Rework),’ which twists a forgotten, jazz-pop masterpiece into the perfect soundtrack for your most blissful dance-floor moments. Closer, ‘Donwanchooback,’ is an anthemic take on Ramona Banks’ ‘I Don’t Want You Back,’ and brings this staple disco tune into perfect DJ territory with it’s extended phrases, dubby flourishes and gallons of laser-beams.

Kornél Kovacs was born in Stockholm and grew up listening to his Hungarian parents’ Kraftwerk tapes while taking drum, piano and singing classes, fell in love with jungle at the early age of 10 and started djing professionally three years later. Back in 2006 Kornél started throwing parties in his hometown, playing at clubs and festivals all around Sweden as well as in Tokyo, Mexico City, New York, London, Barcelona, Berlin and wherenot. He then began hosting the highly influential P3 Dans show on Swedish national radio, partook in the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy and played a smashing peak time set for a packed Sónar By Day stage in 2009 and continued his quest for world dominance with starting the record label/dj trio/love thang Studio Barnhus together with Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist.

Last year year he started the Puss label together HNNY and now we get his new vinyl only single “1985 Edits” which is basically three stupid fresh edits of tracks from the year he was born, to celebrate the release we here at Discobelle got an exclusive mix recorded live in the basement of the Marie Laveau club in Stockholm that takes on a booming ride through the Kornel soundscape of dirty techno, smooth house and raved up sounds.

BONUS: As an exclusive download, Kornél graciously gave us the cozy, heartfelt and pianobased B-side track “Björn”. Enjoy!
