Following the release of the long-awaited single ‘Monday Blues’ by Eric Sharp and Zhao on Swedish imprint House Music With Love, the next natural step was to invite a couple of amazing artists and producers to put their own spin on the already beautiful track.

The french duo Pandhora, London based producer Urmet K and Swiss producer SOAME were obvious choices and oh did they deliver. While still preserving the heart and soul of the original track, all three versions in this remix package come with its own unique touch and are an absolute treat to experience. Urmet K went for a heavier and bouncier route by switching up and adding to the bassline as well as pushing for harder-hitting hi-hats and percussions that blend together perfectly with the added colorful notes. The french producer pair Pandhora set out to create a vast soundscape and absolutely nailed it. The synthesizers were put to action by letting the notes ring out and wobble throughout the track making it very spacious, and the added bonus of live elements makes the track very organic and beautiful.

Swiss producer SOAME chose another path and went for a different and much darker vibe. Deciding to work with the original bassline but then implementing colder and grittier notes that are given space to echo throughout the production makes for a very intimate but spooky atmosphere. A beautiful creation by a very talented producer.

Our good friend Los Angeles based producer/dj Eric Sharp teams up with his buddy Zhao for the brand new deep house inspired single “Monday Blues” that will be released on May 29th via our friends in hometown heroes House Music With Love

The track is spearheaded by a dark sounding synth line, a steadfast bass-filled rhythm and Zhaos vocals riding on top.

“Monday Blues is a personal piece that comes from a place of empathy and compassion. It was written during a time when someone very close to me was unearthing deep-seated psychic pain in a healing process from their past. The verses are imbued with struggle and heaviness, while the chorus inspires hope, and faith in the ability move beyond our hurts together. Everyone has challenges in life, and we are never alone in our feelings. There is no wound too deep to be made whole, and I hope this song reminds people of that.”

Los Angeles based producer Eric Sharp teams up with fellow Angeleno Give In – they’re both members of collective RIS Labs – for the superb new release “Version 3” which drops today via Understated Recordings. Remixes on the release comes from Tenova, Modus and Micah Smith.

We here at Discobelle have been following Eric Sharp for a couple of years and each release from him is bound to make our ears pop in a good way, we’re glad to premiere the original mix the track. “Version 3” goes deep and it can best be described as a “moody, ethereal, and melodic voyage” with chords that twist and turn throughout along with haunting bells, sweeping synths and full on basslines.

“I was exploring darker, heavier music while hanging out in the studio with my buddy Sean Patrick. We had been listening to a bunch of tunes from labels like Innervisions, Culprit, and Ghostly International. I wrote some yearning chords and melodies and began to develop the idea from there. Sean encouraged me to get really granular with the drum programming and write something with slow, subtle changes throughout. I got the track to a place where I liked it but didn’t think it was quite there yet. I sent it over to George, aka Give In, whom I’d collaborated with a few times. Rather than just give feedback, he got some ideas and ran with them. The bell sound that features throughout is actually George playing an Ikea bowl. He busted out some great countermelodies and synth sounds from his collection of analog gear and put on the finishing touches.” – Eric Sharp

Los Angeles based producer/dj and Discobelle friendly Eric Sharp returns with a new EP, he teams up with some of his buddies for the “Eric Sharp and Friends EP” (out now via Little Assembly, features Zhao and French Horn Rebellion). The four-track offering is teeming with warm, hypnotic and dreamy house music, our favorite track is the soothing opener “Call In The Night”.

“For the ‘Eric Sharp & Friends EP’ I left that creative constraint behind and just focused on making music as an ends in and of itself. Those who follow my original work will know that collaboration is a big part of my process. I find that there is a nearly magical energy exchange in co-creating music with other artists whom I share a wavelength with”

L.A based producer and general all-around great guy Eric Sharp first came on our radar back in 2013 with his Pitchfork approved original single “Time Drips” from his “Sharp Cuts” EP.
