Search By Tag: Mattie Safer

Los Angeles based artist Maggie Horn drops her fantastic “What If” EP (with DC producer Nacey behind the decks), 5 tracks of bittersweet and superb dance-pop.

This is what Maggie said about the process when working on the EP:

“It’s my most important music personally as I wrangled with a lot of demons (depression, rape, isolation, self-acceptance). It feels and sounds mostly like a very celebratory, free EP to me though. Addressing these things gave them so much less power over me.”

Mattie Safer first captured the public’s attention with his era-defining work as the bassist and co-lead vocalist in seminal NYC outfit The Rapture. He’s gearing up to release his new EP “All We Are (Remixes)” on June 30th. The single features remixes of songs from his debut solo EP “All We Are”.

We here at Discobelle can premiere the remix from moombahton pioneer Dave Nada which is basically a sultry lovers jam for those that feel like slow dancing their summer away.

Australia’a very own purveyor of all-things-house – Beni – unleashed his debut album “House Of Beni” on Modular Records October 11th. Second single “Someone Just Like You” features vocal offerings from Mattie Safer (who used to be in The Rapture). We have a Discobelle exclusive in the form of this dark remix from acclaimed Swedish producer Style Of Eye that tweaks the original into sounding more like something you’d listen while racing down the highway in a manic state, we’re talking a sinister big room remix that in its path will only leave pulverized dancefloors.

Something Hot

It’s getting a bit too chilly for our comfort here in Sweden so it’s a good thing that Exploited Records give us a hot new track to lift our spirits. Funky German pop/electrohouse producer Lorenz Rhode is teaming up with Exploited for the release of his second EP on the label; “Something Hot”. The synth-saturated title track features the vocal offerings of infamous Berlin based singer Snax (Ex-Captain Comatose & support act for Jamie Lidell, Peaches and Scissor Sisters), who turns “Something Hot” into something even hotter. The releasedate for the EP is January 15th and a remix EP will follow with Swedish duo Savage Skulls (Dubsided/Mad Decent), Seiji (Bugz in the Attic/Computer Juice), Mattie Safer (ex-The Rapture), Shazam (Bang Gang) going all in on the track.

As a little teaser for the release here’s a new and exclusive remix that Lorenz did for Bavarian Ghetto-pimps Schlachthofbronx.
