After 4 years and 1,5 million+ streams, childhood friends Mons and Amadeus in Swedish electronic pop duo Anwai are finally ready to unleash their debut EP “Dreams”. The duo has received praise from media outlets across the globe, their songs have been featured on multiple radio stations in Europe in addition to being featured on TV shows in North America. Their debut EP gives us four tracks of sublime pop music interspersed with electronica and r’n’b elements and soft vocals.

The two EP tracks “Dreams” and “Changing” will also be released as beautiful acoustic versions in March recorded in Riksmixningsverket Studio (a studio that was created by world famous producer Benny Andersson from ABBA).

“Our debut EP “DREAMS” has been quite a long time coming. It is quite hard putting down something that you’ve been working on for a long time and calling it done. I would call it a mixture of both old Anwai but also something new. I feel we’ve taken the sound to a much higher level than before. Both production-wise and just judging upon the writing and arrangement. But I guess that comes with time. We’ve had almost five years now to grow together musically.” – Anwai?

Los Angeles based house wizard Pat Lok comes straight from a massively successful 2018 to start off 2019 with new single “From the Back” that features raunchy vocals from NYC transplant Dances with White Girls.

The track was made in collaboration with fellow Los Angeles duo Party Pupils, and it’s a seriously funky and thumping club ready nu-disco jam that we at Discobelle are stoked to premiere.

“I had been following PP on Twitter and saw they were talking about an A-Ha remix, so I reached out and sent them some piano ideas for it and that was how we connected. They’re based in LA so I went into the studio with Ryan one day and started playing out these chords, he put down some drums and very quickly we had a club jam! It very much captures the vibe and energy of our projects together.” – Pat Lok

Lok and Party Pupils plan to hit the road together on a US tour later this year.

The Strange Fruits record imprint continuously brings us top notch productions from artists who I’ve yet to hear. NUDØ is the latest to surprise me with professional quality sound on the new single ‘Change My Mind.’ He collaborated with singer songwriter Veronica Bravo to bring a massive future bass/pop track.

NYC-based duo Brasstracks won a Grammy last year for their production work on Chance The Rapper’s single “No Problem”, today they dropped their 2nd single from brand new EP “Before We Go”.

The track “I’m Alright” features artist R.Lum.R and is one silky smooth r’n’b influenced joint.

“I’m Alright has been about a year and some change in the making – we reached out to R.LUM.R after hearing some of his music on Soundcloud (as per usual), and found out that we were mutual fans of each other (sick). We set up a session in NYC pretty quickly, the studio that we met up at didn’t have the proper equipment (classic) so we just went back to the home studio and made the bulk of it there. It all started with a very rough Ableton demo, we added and subtracted until we got to the final product of I’m Alright, which is what you’re listening to now. We hope you come out of this listen remembering your self worth – that’s our favorite way to look at the song.” – Brasstracks

“The best thing about working with Brasstracks is I’m legitimately a fan. They’re kinda gods on Soundcloud, and I def remember hearing their FourFiveSeconds remix with Lido and being stoked. But I guess I just believed they were always just another one of those amazing guys you find online and never think you’ll actually get to work with….until it happens. I remember getting to to the studio and being stoked beyond belief to work with them, and also really refreshed by how approachable and chill they are. They definitely made me feel comfortable. I was going through some things with a person I was very down for who unfortunately wasn’t that down for me, and they made me feel really welcome and the writing session became a place where I felt like I could say anything and express myself. I was in a place where I was realizing this person I was really down for only saw me as second best to someone else, and I had to face that. So, I wrote about that. I needed to realize that…I’m alright with being on my own instead of being this person’s second option. This song is me saying “I’m gonna go and find the person that holds me in a higher regard than that.”

I was so in my feelings that I think we wrote and recorded about 90% of it in about 3 hours in Ivan’s basement. I’m just pumped they decided to include me in their project.” – R.LUM.R

Brasstracks are slated for an immensely busy year. Shortly after the release of their new EP at the end of the month, they’ll be embarking on a 26-date headlining tour across North America – The Vibrant Tour – with support from Pell and Kemba. The tour kicks off in Boston on January 30th. Grab tickets for The Vibrant Tour here.

Young gun producer Just Max recently dropped a massive flip of Louis the Child’s ‘Better Not.’ Starting out with a super vibey intro filled with the original vocal complimented by the producer’s special piano touch, the remix finishes with Just Max’s signature guitar shredding solo.

 

We have the pleasure of bringing you some real good vibes from the Drishti Beats Collective and premier their release ‘It’s All About the Music’. Their latest downtempo chill track has a positive outlook on music and its effects on life. MC EM Lowe showcases his songwriting with uplifting lyrics.

He had this to say about creating this single: “This song is about giving back through music and not concerning oneself with material but rather improving yourself through the truth and returning what was given to you.”

Miami based singer-songwriter CALICA just released an absolutely salacious single ‘Give &Take’. Her latest is a dreamy, retro wave creation filled with blissful guitars and angelic vocals. She will definitely be an artist on my radar.
