Yung Lean surprised us yesterday with the release of a new mixtape entitled “Frost God”. The eight track mixtape features the recent single “Hennessey & Sailor Moon” that features Bladee plus “Crystal City” (a collaboration with ASAP Ferg) along with a slew of new tracks.

Black Friday madness is upon us, it’s good thing that we have this exquisite mix of dancey, electronic pop tunes from Istanbul born, currently New York City residing artist/songwriter/producer and Berklee College Of Music alumni SIRMA.

SIRMA’s music is a blend of ethereal pop with electronica. She has spent the past two years working on developing her own sound and writing, recording and producing at her home studio in Brooklyn. The first product of this seclusion and self-discovery is her “To Love” EP, which will be released early 2017.

Jorge Cruz of Trax Records/Weare18 fame drops a mixtape of all out cumbia and this is our go to mix for a depressing Monday morning.

“I was supposed to be in el DF but instead I decided to move to L.A. I can’t help but to yearn for those nights out, getting off to go to Amberes to that little club in the afternoon.

I miss dancing with a crowd. I miss those afternoons. I miss dancing on the streets while my grandma sat and watched.

For now this little slice will have to suffice. It’s not the same. Pero — ahi vamos.”

Canadian artist Kaytranada just won the Polaris Music Prize in Canada and he also dropped new mixtape “0.001% ???” as a celebration. The 90 minute long mixtape could be seen as a follow up to his highly acclaimed “99,9%” album that was released just before the summer.

Malmö based artist Leslie Tay started out at a young age and then dropped out of the music business for a few years before re-emerging last year as one of the most interesting acts on the modern Swedish r’n’b scene, his new mixtape “Skisser & SMS 2” should be on constant rotation for the remainder of 2016.

World renowned UK producer/dj Redlight returns with a fifth track from his upcoming mixtape “Templates Volume 1” (released via Lobster Boy) which is a selection of the best 11 tunes and remixes that he’s done in the past 6 months – the Discobelle exclusive “Room Control” is dark club monster with a ominous bass that have the potential to turn dancefloors into a frenzy.

Weekend saved!
