As an ode to small rural towns in northern Sweden, Swedish outfit Småstaden (Klas Granström and Anders Nilsson) focuses on stories and working with artists from said small towns. A perspective – especially within hip hop and r’n’b – that’s been sadly overlooked in terms of coverage in Swedish mainstream media.

The first single “Varje Liten del” (will be released tomorrow December 13th on Grind Records) features Jokkmokk rapper Kitok and Luleå musician Petter Granberg (who has worked with Amason, Movits! and has also worked as a producer for El Perro Del Mar), the track itself is an enticing and suggestive sounding vocoder and synth laced slow-mo r’n’b jam.

Brooklyn based, Australian born Oli Chang (1/2 of the celebrated dream-pop group High Highs) continues with his Animal Feelings project which is focused on a more dance/house sound.

On excellent new single “Now or Never” (slated for a release today December 12th date US label Bonfire Records) premiered right here on Discobelle, he provides us with silky smooth vocals layered over a steadfast beat and pulsating synthwork.

Berlin producer Ninetoes had immense success with the release of his “Volar La Pluma” single earlier this year, now he returns with a double remix package of the single track courtesy of Swiss producer Andrea Oliva and French tag team Amine Edge & DANCE. We here at Discobelle are excited to exclusively share the premiere of the Amine Edge & DANCE remix with our readers.

The remix package will be released via his own imprint Head To Toe on Friday December 13th, and Amine Edge & DANCE gives the tribalistic sounding track a grooved out and techy feel when they chop up the vocal sample and tacks on an absolutely addictive bassline.

Here today with Slow Magic’s final gift to this decade, his 6-track Dreams project, available for streaming and purchase now. Born out of the artists most difficult year to date, Dreams comes after Slow Magic found himself trapped at the hands of an unfavorable record deal, not allowing him to release any new music. Now free of previous label chains, the anonymous artist unveils his most sonic work to date: a story through sound exploring his own trials and tribulations with the dark side of the music industry.

French electronic duo Parrad (consists of Atom from DMC champions and platinum-selling electro group C2C and singer/songwriter Gwen Delaba). They are set to release their new 3-track “So Cold” EP on December 12th via On and On Records with a debut album due during the spring of 2020.

Their sound is both dreamlike and powerful with the duo’s infectious songwriting at heart. We here at Discobelle are able to premiere the haunting title track that also features up and coming artists Nerlov and Degree.

“This track is an ode to slowness and reverie that sets the tone for what’s to come. Nerlov and Degree as guests are the perfect combination.”

SF/Miami based indie-pop songstress ZOLA releases a little bit of lush magic in the form of her French chanson influenced new single, “Telephone” which is released today via KIDinaKORNER Records and which we here at Discobelle can premiere.

“I wrote “Telephone” while I was in a long-distance relationship. The song is about the doubts and insecurities I felt being so far away from my significant other. Whenever I felt like I was spiraling or couldn’t sleep, talking on the phone would make things feel normal and put my mind at ease. This was the first long-distance relationship I had ever been in and I definitely wasn’t good at it.”
