Los Angeles-based neo-soul artist Nova Moura draws inspiration from the likes of Frank Ocean and his surreal, dark and dreamlike r&b/neo-soul sound explores themes of vulnerability, isolation and loneliness. His music has already seen praise from outlets such as Noisey and Earmilk.
We here at Discobelle can premiere new single track “Alone Together” which is immediately striking with hypnotizing vocals and should be the soundtrack to your next night at home longing for a loved one.
Frank Ocean keeps on dropping surprise tracks, “Biking” surfaced during the Blonded radio show on Beats 1 last night and the pianolaced also features Jay-Z and Tyler The Creator.
When an artist like Frank Ocean releases music, you can 100% be sure to encounter an onslaught of remixes to follow. “White Ferrari” was a definite stand-out within the Blonde (order the album from iTunes here) release and Russian producer Dontleaveme absolutely knocks this bootleg out of the park. It’s smooth and subtle, perfect for enjoying it on a rainy Saturday night in, just like I am at the moment. There isn’t much else to say about this but – kick back, relax, and enjoy.

The writer’s out in LA are currently enjoying the long nights out, the sweaty humid days, and of course, all of the festivals that come as the reward for dealing with bad traffic, smog, and reality TV stars.
What the team is really excited for is the upcoming FYF festival. So excited, that we gathered some of our favorite songs from artist’s on the lineup to get everyone ready for the fantastic times ahead.
The festival will be on this August 22 and 23rd, and while so many of the Festivals in Southern California happen in “the greater Los Angeles area (Indio, Palm Springs, San Bernadino, Pomona), this one happens to be directly in the city at the The LA Sports Arena & Exposition Park.
With a killer lineup, FYF is set for another successful year. Purchase tickets via their site, and check out their roster and our playlist below.
