It’s been another pretty great year for us here at Discobelle and we’re rounding it all off with the last exclusive mix of 2015 which comes courtesy of NYC/L.A dj/producer Whitney Fierce who honed her trade as a tour dj for New Order and who has also been working as a vocalist for among others Hercules And Love Affair and Subb-An. She plays frequently across the US and Europe. This mix should be solid one for your New Years party, put it on -> be dazzled -> get your freak on.
Happy new year, see you in 2016!
Big premiere here on Discobelle today!
US indie pop duo Sylvan Esso were among the most viral artists on Spotify and the most blogged artists on Hype Machine in 2014. Their self titled debut album was a success and hit the Billboard Top 40.
New single “H.S.K.T” (will be released June 11th via Partisan Records) has received the remix treatment just in time for the summer season and on this Discobelle exclusive premiere from NYC house/disco crew Hercules & Love Affair we hear the organic vocals of Sylvan Esso merging with a masterful, thumping house groove.
Dutch production duo Mason burst onto the dance music scene back in 2007 and are now set to release their second album “ZOA” on August 26th, the album is an eclectic collection of genre-bending, electronic based jams that crosses between italodisco to house, electro to indiepop.
“For the last two years we’ve released lots of club oriented stuff, but kept on making all kinds of other music in the background. Making only club driven tracks 24/7 is just a bit dull!â€ says Iason. We had absolutely no musical boundaries making ZOA. Anything goes, as long as we’re digging it. Itâ€™s the opposite of writing DJ tool â€˜fodderâ€™, or pre-fabricated radio hits. It made the whole process so enjoyable.”
The first album single is the funky track “Gotta Have You Back” features Rouge Mary of Hercules & Love Affair and this remix from Australian house producer Beni gives us a deep, stuttering house bass, cut up vocals and a general swagger that’s bound to make it a dancefloor hit.
Nomi Ruiz is a staple New York dance music scene, she was previously a part of Hercules and Love Affair and is the creator of Jessica 6.
With the release of her ten year project “Borough Gypsy Mixtape”, she reveals her hip hop/soul roots.
Relish Recordings delivers their latest signing, International is a new duo from somewhere south of the Alps, Relish welcomes International. The inaugural release â€“ “River Seine” â€“ is an Ibiza meets Manchester piano driven number with 909 snares, simple delays and tightly enveloped chords lend that Detroit nod. Hercules & Love Affair member Kim Ann Foxman provides us with a more discofueled remix where she even adds a bit of her own vocals to give the remix that little extra something.
