“Tell Me, Tell Me” is the debut offering from Swedish producer Helax (who is also behind dream-pop duo The Ghost Of Helags and electronic act Brynäs), he resides in Berlin but wrote and recorded the EP in a cheap hotel room on Reeperbahn the main avenue of Hamburg’s red light district.

The four tracks on the EP were inspired by the nocturnal and hedonistic vibe of the strip clubs in the area as well as by his aimless walks down the harbour, watching the incessant comings and goings of freighters and sailors from all over the world at night. The EP straddles a finely balanced line between melancholia and more club-ready, steadfast compositions and it echoes the vibe of walking along a dark harbour, seeing the pitch-black water and the pulsating city lights.

“Fire” is the latest single to emerge from NYC outfit Passé and it’s a collaboration with fellow New Yorker Outros. The track playfully combines funky house vibes with some electro flavor and super-catchy vocals while making sure to keep the balance with big drops and grooved out synth lines.

HNNY – Hosoi

Sep 13 2019

Stockholm-based audiophile bar Hosoi launches their own imprint Hosoi Recordings with a superbly lush sounding release from resident HNNY. “Hosoi” is released today and features two stunning tracks.

Based in Stockholm, Hosoi is a listening bar with a focus on sound quality boasting custom-built KRS speakers, a hand built Condesa mixer and high-end Technics turntables. Many influential artists have passed through Hosoi — including Dip In The Pool, John Talabot, Young Marco, Kate NV and Wolf Muller & Niklas Wandt — both to share their music and to be part of such a vibrant space. It is the only venue where HNNY has continued mixing music regularly as a sole resident, curating the “Music For Listening” series – a Sunday hangout for Stockholm’s discerning music lovers.

Releasing music created with its room in mind, Hosoi will put out live recordings and compilations from the bar’s favourites and it only made sense that close friend HNNY kick starts proceedings.

MC Buzzz is considered to be one of Barcelona’s most exciting rising stars and today he releases his debut offering “Baile Da Rua” for NYC label Mixpak. He was born in Sao Paolo, Brazil and grew up in the Raval area of Barcelona, he brings a baile funk influenced style to the Spanish rap scene. At just 20 years old, he’s already been a member of “Urbano boy band” Los Sugus, been the face of a Nike campaign, and released with La Vendicion Records – home to Spanish rap stars Yung Beef and Kaydy Cain.

Montreal producer Jacques Greene just announced that his new album “Dawn Chorus” will be released via UK label Lucky Me on October 18th), lead single, “Do It Without You” premiered yesterday morning via Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC 6Music. The dreamlike track is built around a hypnotizing vocal sample and drums that sound like they’re marching towards a slowly moving and strobe-lit dancefloor.

The new album is also Greene’s most collaborative project to date, featuring additional production and instrumentation from film composer Brian Reitzell (Lost In Translation), cello by London’s Oliver Coates, additional production from Clams Casino and original vocal contributions from ambient artist Julianna Barwick, rapper Cadence Weapon and singers Ebhoni and Rochelle Jordan, all sampled, processed and stitched back into the album. If Greene’s 2017 debut album, Feel Infinite, was the soundtrack to a dream pregame – amping you up to lose yourself in the club – then Dawn Chorus resides in the post-rave reflective moment. A time of heightened sensuality and latent possibility.

Dubai based sobhhï recently released his latest offering, “imagine that”, an intimately honest love-song and another shining example of his trapsoul nocturnal sound and on the single sobhhï explores themes of love and distance, two predominant themes of his music.

On “imagine that” sobhhï grapples with the challenges of a long-distance lust, posing a series of hypotheticals around the “imagine that” refrain. sobhhï’s airy vocals float over the atmospheric production, walking the line of R&B and bedroom soul, ripe with sub-bass and percussive snaps.

“Traveling frequently makes it difficult to have the same kind of relationships with people that you would if you were neighbors. This is bedroom soul about my favorite topic, distance. And it reads like a letter; it’s part of a larger dialogue.”

London outfit Super Drama are set to release their new EP “Unforgettable Runway” via Moshi Moshi Music, the duo have been tearing through the London scene with a residency at Dalston Superstore, sets at Horse Meat Disco, Rinse FM, Capitol FM and NTS. Their sound has been described as “tears in the club” so expect emotional club music.

The title track which we here at Discobelle can premiere today takes its name from a very influential Instagram account – an archive featuring some of the most lauded catwalk shows from the nineties – the track is comprised of a steadfast beat, interspersed with metallic-sounding synths and bursts of extravagant melody.

An album that we’ve listened to a lot this summer is “Dreams from The Shore” (released via Radio Juicy) from two amazing producers, UK-based Psalm Trees and Malmö based Moose Dawa and the album is a smooth, intricate and sample-based affair of chilled-out and warm sounding jazzy awesomeness.

“Dreams From The Shore is the result of what can be achieved together from different parts of the world, transversing the barriers of language and societies norms into sound, reminding us that no matter where we are, like the sea we are always in some sense connected”
