Discobelle-Mix-129

Detroit native and all around, a-class lad, Pontchartrain (nee Dustin Alexander), dropped by the offices and left this lovely little mix for our exclusive series. The disco wunderkind blasted on to the scene with heavily lauded releases on Whiskey Disco, which he now co-runs with label founder, Sleazy McQueen. In Addition, Pontch has found recent success on WD sub-label, Lovedancing, as well as Kolour LTD and Detroit’s Rocksteady Disco. His brand of re-edit wizardly is earmarked with perfection and see’s him reimagining and reinforcing forgotten disco and funk tunes…updating them for modern dance floors.

We’ve featured Pontchartrain a several times here in the past and it’s great to finally add him to our arsenal of Discobelle Mix providers. Strap in and enjoy!

Javi-Frias

Fresh Discobelle Mix courtesy of Madrid’s Javi Frias… here, he offers a much needed, disco injection to our catalog with an hour long mix jam packed with vintage heaters. Finding great success in the edit vanguard, Frias has 12″ releases on labels like Street Edits and GC Records plus digital outings on Midnight Riot, Hotbox Boogie and many others. Dig into this elegant and addictive DJ set from the man, full of energy and soul…the perfect soundtrack for your Hump Day!

Brooklyn’s bastion of disco deviance, Razor-N-Tape, kicks off the year with a lovely four-tracker from Rose Records founder, Martin Hayes. Chalk full of deep and dusty delights, opening tune, “Get On Down” holds a sleazy slap-bass line for huge timbale rolls to flitter upon while “Make Me Dance” follows suit with loads of latin percussion and a lovingly lazy groove. Flip it over for “Tight Spot” which gets things nice and fiery while closer, “Ol’ Funky Music” is straight out of a forgotten blacksploitation film.

Discobelle Mix 105??? You might could say that we’re chuggin along, now couldn’t you? The latest transmission comes courtesy of Essex based, scalpel technician, Chuggin Edits. We caught wind of Chuggz, nee’ Gary, via his podcast series, Slice Of Life and his lovely remix for Drop Out Orchestra from a few weeks back. Here he’s gifted us with a solid mix of sleazy disco edits and house inspired joints that are sure to tickle your fancy and get those boogie shoes bumping!

Vinyladdicted

VinylAddicted may not be a household name at the moment, but in the near future, that is sure to change. The Greek producer and label head has helmed many a successful project with his two, vinyl-only imprints Editor’s Kutz and Diggin’ Disco Deep, plus great releases for the Whiskey Disco and Smokecloud labels and operating his own blog, Just Love Vinyls. Here, the vinyl enthusiast drops a live mix that acts more or less as a primer for his current and forthcoming releases with a multitude of selections from the upcoming Diggin’ Disco Deep #2 as well as current and unreleased music from each of his labels. If you’re looking for a slice of pure disco-funk and smooth, deep-disco house joints, look no further than this fab new mix from a scene luminary.

Brooklyn’s disco haven, Razor-N-Tape, are back with their latest slab courtesy of Michael The Lion (aka DJ Apt One). His latest collection of DJ friendly edits kicks off with “Anytime,” a funky, sing-along heater with heavy percussion and jangly keys. Next up, “The Don” takes things international with a cheeky little disco groove, latin vocals and vintage synth riffs while “Get More” is a hard-funk treatment of a classic Teddy Pendergrass tune. Wrapping things up, Michael enlists the talents of fellow Brooklynite, Sammy Bananas, to rework Herb Albert’s most “hypnotizing” effort to date on “909s and Herb.”

Major Lazer unfortunately have to postpone the release of their album “Free The Universe” but to hold us over they’re providing us with three different compilations of rarities, remixes and edits. The first volume features their own remix of Hot Chip along with remixes from Jack Beats, Yellow Claw and DGRC.

“Our fans are the most important part of what makes Major Lazer what it is. It is with that consideration that “FREE THE UNIVERSE” will not be released this month as previously scheduled. We never want to disappoint our supporters but circumstances out of our control have made us unable to keep the intended date. For anyone disappointed, we are truly apologetic and we promise that this hiccup has only made what we have planned for the album stronger. We tried extremely hard to keep the date but it was ultimately decided that rushing the album would have been unfair to you and everyone who worked so hard on it. An iTunes exclusive pre-order in the US will launch next Tuesday, 2/26 which will feature an instant grat download of the forthcoming Major Lazer single “Watch Out for This (Bumaye).”

Delving into Psychemagik’s soundcloud page is like wandering into a balearic wormhole that transports you back to the days of dirty moog laserbeams. Psychemagik’s productions always seem to have a warmth to them, evoking the serenity of sitting on the beach watching a lunar eclipse or the
unfiltered nostalgia of hearing songs you loved and forgot about blared out in a slightly repackaged format.

All of this is at work in their newest offering, the second installment of four limited edition 12″s in a series of edits from their forthcoming re-edits album “Healin’ Feelin’s”.

“Ass Nation” is a white hot ball of pure funk energy, riding somewhere in between Tom Tom Club and Sly & The Family Stone- the guitars are hypnotizing. Flip side “Upskirt” is a skeezy narrative boogie-rock tale about murder soundtracked by echoing flangers and sparse tambourine shakes, guaranteed to make you walk across the dancefloor like you’re in a movie.

Grab the whole thing at Phonica, and while you’re at it why don’t you take some generous free Psychemagik edits too? Like, say, their Metronomy remix of “Everything Goes My Way” and a ten and a half minute Yardbirds edit that goes to some pretty marvelous places.
