German techno icon Felix Kröcher returns to Toolroom Records with stunning new track “You Gotta” which is lifted off the brand new Toolroom Records’ Amsterdam 2015 compilation (includes 40 tracks with contributions from big names such as Technasia & Green Velvet, Maceo Plex, Hot Since 82, Julian Jeweil and Pete Tong & Monkman etc).

“You Gotta” is a driven techno track with a pulsating bass and crisp sounding hi-hats that’s matched up with an undeniable groove.


Our old buddies over at SF label Dirtybird just wrapped up their succesful DIRTYBIRDCAMPOUT festival and today we can present you with the latest single release on the label.

Spanish producer Lopezhouse drops his his Dirtybird debut with the huge single “Mude Tod” (a reference to “Der Müde Tod” ie “The Weary Death”, a 1921 silent film directed by Fritz Lang), it’s a dark sounding and driven techno track with hints of a catchy melody polarized by chilling vocals courtesy of Angela.


Our friends over at the always exciting Los Angeles based label Friends Of Friends sent over one of the upcoming tracks from their Singles Series which is basically their attempt to release music from young and untested artists.

For the fifth entry in the series we can premiere LA’s own house innovator Cromie (he’s worked extensively with Sage Caswell and is part of a new wave of Los Angeles house music that includes names such as Suzanne Kraft and Palmbomen) with his track “ZA”, the track itself is geared for peak time dancefloor play and displays a thumping production of dark and menacing sounding house music.


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…..”


Mesmerizing new track from Berlin producer David August that features Greek singer Sissi Rada.

“Last year I met Sissi Rada. She was singing in Greek and playing the harp when I first listened to her. I asked her to record something with me as I wanted to use her voice for my music. We sat down, I played the harmonies on my Prophet 5 and she would jam over it. Her first take is the take you’re listening to. Back then I was in my bedroom studio. We had noises from the street, roommates the next door, but the take captured the magic and the spontaneous moment of just doing music. I didn’t want to record it again.

Her lyrics are about the devastating political and financial situation in Greece and I tried – as much as I could do – to reflect that with my music.”


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.
