The latest signing to NYC/Berlin label Safer At Night is Berlin up and coming producer/dj Jägerverb who drops his “Baseliner EP” on November 6th. The super talented producer has already seen strong support from the likes of Stuart Price, Danny Daze and John Talabot.
We here at Discobelle are premiering the stream of the cut “Amber Light”, a track with a soothing flute like melody and a pitter patter beat that offers a fine taste of a seductive electronica soundscape.
October 2nd marks the release of the second album from German quartet ABBY, “Hexagon” sees them incorporating more electronic elements into their dark psychedelia sound. ABBY have already collaborated with the likes of Moderat, George Morales and Apparat in the past and also appeared on John Talabot’s DJ-Kicks compilation so the electronic elements comes as no surprise. On the new album they’ve worked together with Brandt Brauer Frick and Pan-Pot.
We here at Discobelle can premiere the track “Hold Out And Drive” which is a soothing and soulful electronica number with pitter patter drums and hypnotizing vocals.
Swedish festival Into The Valley has already been named one of the top festivals in the world and it hasn’t even taken place yet, it’s a two day celebration of electronic music where Dalhalla – a former limestone quarry and one of the most unique venues in Sweden – is rebuilt to an open air club. The festival takes place from July 31st to August 2nd in Dalhalla, outside of Rättvik which is located about 280 kilometres from Stockholm and tickets are available here. Artists performing includes Four Tet, Mount Kimbie, Nicolas Jaar, Ricardo Villalobos, John Talabot, Richie Hawtin, Carl Craig, Âme,
Axel Boman, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Nina Kraviz, Ida Engberg, Benoit & Sergio, Genius Of Time, Dixon, Kim Ann Foxman, Baba Stiltz, Kornel Kovacs etc.
Into The Valley takes the pulse of the city to the heart of the forest. By being an extension of previous projects the club feeling is intact, though the context is different. An urban club environment is recreated, and maximized while sound, machinery and lineup aligns with Dalhalla’s majestic backdrop of trees, water and sky. The limestone quarry transforms into a stew of deep electronics and artificially created light warped far from its original destination. Into The Valley is a dream come true for everyone involved, and expectations are high.
We here at Discobelle have teamed up with the organizers Segren Hedlund and will present exclusive mixes from some of the performing artists in the weeks leading up to the festival, first out we have an amazing mix from Stockholm dj/producer Jessie Granqvist who gives us 58 minutes of dark and brooding techno, perfect to listen to in the summer heat.
