Astronomar

We met Marlon Lumba AKA Astronomar at WMC in Miami three years ago and already back then he blew us away with his productions, after relocating from Alaska to L.A he’s released tracks on Mad Decent, Fools Gold, OWSLA, Dim Mak, BNR, Enchufada, Ministry of Sound and Main Course (the label he founded together with Neoteric and Bot) becoming one of the major players within the US dance music scene.

This exclusive mix for us here at Discobelle sees him going into full on jacking techno mode and letting tracks play out and move around like they were designed to.

In order to ease you in to the beginnings and ordeals of a new week, here’s the exquisite mix that Spanish producer Pional recently did for XLR8R.

!…his mix is largely a collection of melody-driven, slow-burning house, but several tracks include catchy synth riffs and vocal passages. It’s tempting to call it “indie,” but it’s more that Pional is simply an artist who’s balancing his passion for the dancefloor with his love of a good pop song. It’s a tricky balancing act to pull off, but at least for now, he’s walking the line very effectively.”

Kornel Kovacs (photo credit Pierre Bjîrk)

Kornél Kovacs was born in Stockholm and grew up listening to his Hungarian parents’ Kraftwerk tapes while taking drum, piano and singing classes, fell in love with jungle at the early age of 10 and started djing professionally three years later. Back in 2006 Kornél started throwing parties in his hometown, playing at clubs and festivals all around Sweden as well as in Tokyo, Mexico City, New York, London, Barcelona, Berlin and wherenot. He then began hosting the highly influential P3 Dans show on Swedish national radio, partook in the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy and played a smashing peak time set for a packed Sónar By Day stage in 2009 and continued his quest for world dominance with starting the record label/dj trio/love thang Studio Barnhus together with Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist.

Last year year he started the Puss label together HNNY and now we get his new vinyl only single “1985 Edits” which is basically three stupid fresh edits of tracks from the year he was born, to celebrate the release we here at Discobelle got an exclusive mix recorded live in the basement of the Marie Laveau club in Stockholm that takes on a booming ride through the Kornel soundscape of dirty techno, smooth house and raved up sounds.

BONUS: As an exclusive download, Kornél graciously gave us the cozy, heartfelt and pianobased B-side track “Björn”. Enjoy!

Elisa-Bee

Alghero, Sardegna might not exactly be the dance music epicentre of the world but that’s where Elisa Bee grew up before moving to Milan and becoming one of the top dj’s in italy and Europe when it comes to basscentered, futuristic sounding club music.

Her exclusive mix for us in Discobelle is no exception and takes us on a ride from Sam Tibas French twist of nouveau R&B via among others Duke Dumont, Bot & Wafa, Hervé & Zebra Katz to land in the shimmering, leftfield sound of Sophie.

Nothing like a Lunice mix to make the week fly by a whole lot faster.

“In my mixes, like at my shows, I tend to approach it from a producer’s perspective, where I think about making an hour-long track mixed with songs instead of drum kits. I also like to add my own production on top of certain songs and not credit it as a “Lunice Edit” or remix, because that’s just how I like to work. I’m usually on the go when working on mixes. I find that being in a different environment every time is inspiring… I try to keep things simple as to how I want to present any of my projects. Same goes for this mix. A simple approach to get my style across to the listener.”

worthy

SF producer Worthy has been a driving force within the US dance music scene since the early 90′s, in 2001 he moved to San Francisco where he’s been working closely together with among others the Dirtybird crew and also started his own label Anabatic Records.

His eclectic sound is reflected in this exclusive mix done for us in Discobelle on which we get to hear a perfectly executed and funky mix of future house, bassfilled sounds and straight up techno.
