Mix of italo-disco awesomeness courtesy of NYC based legend Jacques Renault, done for the Boiler Room x FIAT party in NYC that takes place tonight.

“Going through my records to prepare for this Italo-inspired mix was a trip down memory lane; I loved it. I thought it would help if I narrowed my options of what to include by picking out records that I bought in various NYC record stores before the Discogs days. If that wasn’t enough, I cranked it to eleven and selected only Italian pressings, with the exception of my U.S. copy of “Feel the Drive”. I’m sure any Italo enthusiast will know all of these tunes, so the point wasn’t to wow you with how desirable the tracks are but rather give you a snapshot of what Italo I did find in the early 2000s that still means something to me today.”


Jannis of the Jakarta Records imprint brings us another splendid and super funky mix of Arabic 70’s and 80’s music.

“In the last couple of months I had the privilege to be able to travel a lot for DJ gigs and in order to find Fadoul’s family (the fruits of this labour can be found here: habibifunkrecords.bandcamp.com/album/azmanah-salb). I spent some time in Morocco, Tunisia and Jordan. This mix is some of the music I found, a few trades are in there too. It’s quite a colorful range. Disco from Algeria and Morocco, a James Brown cover from Egypt, a modern soul meets reggae hybrid from Tunisia, a new Fadoul track that the internet doesn’t seem to know of yet and some other great bits and pieces. Come along to another journey to the funky side of the arab world…..”


We’re pumped to welcome our friend and all around cool guy Daniel T aka Daniel Terndrup to this week’s exclusive Discobelle mix. A fixture of the LA dance scene for years, you may know Daniel as one half of Cosmic Kids, for his bi-weekly radio show on Dublab, or from his own imprint Distant Works. Earlier this year Terndrup released his debut EP Tetrachromat off Young Adults, which has been praised by the likes of Pitchfork and RA for it’s kaleidoscope of sounds and sun-drenched ascetic.

With tracks like Blackway’s “New Life” or “Arnold’s Theme” by Touch Sensitive, this mix creates a lush soundscape perfect for long drives along the coast with a lover or a friend. Check it and the tracklist down below.

Touch Sensitive – Arnold’s Theme

Kindness drops a mix that’s filled with vibes ranging from Björk, via Jay Rock, Kelela and an unreleased edit of Jam City to Joey Bada$$ etc.

“It’s most of my favorite records from 2015 so far. It’s not been a great year for life, but it’s been a pretty good year for music. I’m also headed to Tokyo to play a few different nights, and I wanted folks out there to have an idea of what to expect. The title of the mix is a Japanese term which could mean both “Nice to meet you” and yet also “Please give me the benefit of the doubt.”

Discobelle is stoked to feature Austin based DJ/Producer and Octopus Recordings artist, BARBUTO,  in the 95th installment of our exclusive mix series. The Sydney, Australia native relocated to Austin roughly 7 years ago and has since established himself as a major player in the House and Techno scenes of the Live Music Capital of The World. As a resident DJ at the internationally acclaimed, Kingdom Night Club, BARBUTO has shared the decks with such talent as Booka Shade, Drumcell, Timo Maas and hosted label nights for his stalwarts at Octopus Recordings. His debut ep for the luminous imprint dropped earlier this year and was met with resounding praise… we featured his “Arcana EP” HERE.

In between his hectic schedule of production work, club gigs and international touring, BARBUTO found the time to bless us with this thick and chunky mix of slick grooves and heavy beats. His 70 minute mix is a superb offering to our series and one we think you’ll dig instantly. ENJOY!

Jorge Balarezo graces the Discobelle Mix with the latest transmission in our series. He’s laced a 60 minute adventure of deep and moody Techno selections from his home base of New York City, where he lives and works as a member of Curses’ “Safer At Night” collective. Jorge dropped in earlier this season with a stellar debut release for the young imprint, which we covered HERE, and he’s currently working on his latest passion project, COMFORT Radio, which kicks off early next month.

With an emphasis on revisiting Techno Music culture in the New York area, COMFORT Radio will strive to tap the hot bed of burgeoning talent and unify it’s multi- faceted lifestyle through heavily curated selections of photography, interviews and mixtapes. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for that and expect installments from Total Fitness, Peter Fonda, Volvox and Balarezo himeself.

Jorge’s mix for us delivers a diverse cross section of his Techno stylings: something melodic, something hard; something old, something new… essentially, what you’d expect to find at one of his many late night DJ sets across NY. Added bonus: peep this exclusive taste of Curses’ forthcoming tune for Safer At Night, “God In The Dust!”
