Michael-The-Lion

Formerly known as DJ Apt One, Philadelphia based Michael Fichman now goes under the moniker Michael The Lion, he is staple within the Philly music scene and is involved with among others the Soul Clap Records and the Razor N’ Tape crews. His productions showcases his warm and fuzzy feelings for disco, soul and funk.

This exclusive mix done for us here at Discobelle includes lots of his own edits and productions alongside some disco classics to create a funked up, soulful and practically unstoppable mix that will make sure to turn your listening session into a partyfilled affair wherever you may be.

The mix also includes two new songs from the forthcoming Michael The Lion vinyl EP which will be released via Soul Clap Records in April. One of the songs is the amazing “Get It On” (featuring Amy Douglas on vocal duties) and can be downloaded for free below.

British songwriter and producer Henry Green teases his forthcoming Real EP with a new song “More Than This, ” a spine chilling downtempo affair. “It’s about breaking routine, reconnecting as human beings and living with freedom,” Henry says. “I think we’re occasionally guilty of sticking to the script too intently and I just wanted to write about running in a different direction – moving in a different way.”

Bi-coastal songbiard Rodes Rollins channels Lana Del Rey in her campfire spaghetti western confessional Wes Come Back,” a nostalgic song about her first love. Vocals with heavy reverb and slide guitar influences shine through on her latest release.

Rey Aguilar’s bodytalk label hits their seventh release with a lovely, remix package for Chris Forteir’s, Approved Electronic Device moniker. Enlisting the help of A-list talent to handle the duties, we get versions from the likes of MANIK, Brett Johnson and Aguilar as well. Brett Johnson takes the reigns with a triple threat of treatments on offer. His pulsating, “Main Mix” version is the crown jewel with its layers of arpeggios and rolling 808’s… there are also the “Stripped Down Dub” and “Stripped Down Dub – AED Dub” where Approved Electronic Device adds his own flares to the final product.

MANIK steps up next to take us deep into the East borough with his “Brooklyn Mix…” a tribal infused rework with staccato drum programming and loads of vintage percussion and dubbed out vocals. Closing things out, we have label owner, Rey Aguilar, submitting his remix of “Fluture Toon,” the only remix to appear on the EP of said tune. Channelling a similar, vintage flare as MANIK’s version, Aguilar crafts a strong take that will surely make any dance floor work.

Glassio is reflective, alt dance-pop duo consisting of Sam Rad and Charlie P, two producer-songwriters with a mutual love for applying their singer-songwriter state of mind to genre-bending dance music. “Search & Destroy”was a happy accident that came shortly after election night and a vision of re-contextualizing Iggy Pop’s Vietnam war song with a soulful and melancholy spin to reflect the current feeling of uncertainty and fear across the globe.

Italian duo, DJ Rocca & N2B drop in for UK edit label, To Rack & Ruin, with a quad-tracker of scalpel works. Here, we premiere “Mister Cheryl,” a boogie-laced, house stomper that features chunky loops and lovely, vocal chants. Things kick off subdued and hypnotic before opening up to full riffs of the sample source. Horn stabs, janglely guitars and syrupy grooves greet us next before launching into an energetic barrage of chopped vocals and robotic drum programming. This track deftly walks the line between boogie banger and peak time house tackle… a feat that is rarely achieved and unique when executed as such.
