Another week, another fabulously groovy, Discobelle mix! Clocking in at the #159 spot in our exclusive series, we have Costa Rican disco impresario, Napoleon. As head honcho of the Wonderful Times label, he’s showcased such artists as Luvelss, VinylAddicted, Hotmood, Buzz Compass and Martin Hayes. As a producer, the young latino has scored releases on such illustrious imprints as Kolour LTD, Editorial Records, Editor’s Kutz and Masterworks Music, to name a few.

Napoleon turns in a fantastic mix chalked full of groovy, cosmic sounds… a perfect soundtrack for the changing seasons.

Ah, yes….always an exciting moment when Razor-N-Tape promo’s land in your inbox! This latest from MFR Collective, an anonymous, super duo of legendary producers comes correct with some lovely business and we instantly jumped at the A-side, “Your Love Is Saved.” Rock-steady rhythms and percussion riffs greet you at the onset, joined shortly by a groove laden bass line and dub flourishes. Over the next seven minute, a gospel tinged, dance floor work out unfolds punctuated with drum breaks and organ solos.

Cop it here.

Siren is Darshan Jesrani (Metro Area, Startree) and Dennis Kane (Disques Sinthomme, Ghost Town). Siren began recording in earnest during the winter of 2013, but has beginnings which date farther back, to their mutual residencies at NYC’s storied night-spot APT, and to the parties they produced together in APT’s wake. The duo have recently had mixtape excursions on Tim Sweeny’s, Beats In Space, plus a mix for their home base, Compost Records, which also released a pair of singles that included remixes from Faze Action and Ray Mang.

We’re very excited to add Siren to our arsenal of mix artists, please enjoy their breezy and funk-laden grooves, mixed live, on two turntables.

Buy Siren.

And if you happened to miss his stunning release for Brooklyn’s own, Razor-N-Tape, peep that here.
