Toronto based duo Southern Shores (Jamie Townsend and Ben Dalton) released their first EP for New York label Cascine back in 2011, with their new EP “Siena (Part I)” (due to be released on June 12th and the first of a two-part series) they aim to capture the feeling of an ocean breeze gently whipping a coastal town.

“The mood of the record is more of a sunset, rather than midday bliss. It’s that subtle melancholy that lies beneath the bright textural exterior”

The EP was written over the last year in Jamie and Ben’s shared residence – a hundred-year-old home in the Parkdale area of Toronto – the tracks on the EP contains sounds of tropicalia and funk that fade into the mix along with dreamy house and balearic.

We here at Discobelle can premiere the track “Tropea” (named after the Calabrian seaside town) which is a perfect example of the above-mentioned sound, a smooth and blissful balearic influenced jam that features a warm, funky groove and an organic sound.

After they landed a top spot on Hype Machine together, the award-winning US-based composer for the Chelsea Handler TV-show and electronic pop producer Memoryy along with NBC The Voice semifinalist Troy Ramey (that to this date has 5+ million plays on Spotify and a #1 spot on iTunes) collaborates once again on new single “First Love” (released tomorrow Friday, May 22nd) which we can premiere on Discobelle today!

The track pushes a minimal arrangement with a steadfast guitar-based beat but it’s a heart-wrenching, slow-paced pop track about lost love and comes with a spectacular, soulful vocal performance from Troy Ramey. “First Love” has just been deservedly so nominated for 2 awards including “Best Vocal Performance” for the 2020 New Mexico Music Awards.

Up and coming EDM/dance-pop artist Digrasso hails from Stockholm and “Make It Last” is his newest single and it’s an instant hit with its pop sensibility, shimmering synthwork, and infectious vocals. We here at Discobelle are very excited to be able to bring you the premiere of the visuals for the single.

With this track I wanted to catch a more chill vibe. My earlier releases have been quite powerful sonically. So I wanted to make “Make It Last” stick out by being a bit more chill yet still very me. The inspiration for “Make It Last” came from the track “Wild Side” by Mötley Crue. I always liked their music and as a thank you for the inspiration. I paid tribute to them by opening “Make It Last” with the words ‘’I took a walk on the wild side’’. I’m so glad for the way this track came out, it always brings a smile to my face. And I think it will for you too.”
