Feb – No More

Dec 3 2018

If I were to imagine a dance floor in the 80’s, I’d picture this tune from Feb being played on repeat. His latest “No More” is a disco smash that is sure to brighten your day.

Hot damn! That’s really all I can say about this new release from ZENDR and James Chatburn. The two combined forces to bring “Simply No Better” and they are on some future Outkast type sound. Prepare for a massive lift off from these two artists.

The thing you love about Norwegian artist/crooner Unge Ferrari might just be the thing you hate about him, he’s unpredictable and something of a chameleon. With his debut album “Midt imellom magisk og manisk” (roughly translates to “Inbetween Magical and Manical”) that dropped today via Nora Collective, his lyrics and the theme of his tracks have never before hit this close to home.

It might not be unique or groundbreaking that an artist writes about their own life, the fact that you might have heard these stories before doesn’t take anything away from Unge Ferraris accomplishments with his album, he shows that it’s alright to sing about things that are difficult and at the same time he packages the tracks in productions that encourages you to have a good time.

“I’ve never worked on a more painful project than this, at times I pulled my hair and felt like crying because it felt like I wasn’t getting anything from the process. This album has made me feel prouder than anything else in my life”

With nominations for the Norwegian Grammys, platinum selling records, sold out tours, shows at the largest music festivals in Norway and beyond, praise both nationally and internationally it’s easy to forget that there’s two sides to every story. The last year has been both magical and manical for Unge Ferrari and the work with album has proven to be a therapeutic process where the result is an invitation to his feelings and to the hardships that he’s been through. A trip to the absolute bottom was needed for him to realize that he needed to make some serious changes in his life in order to make it out.

Luckily for us, both his spiritual journey and his physical journey from Miami to Haugesund in Norway culminates in his new album. He shows us that you never really know where he is at musically which the two album singles “Ung & Dum” and “Balkong” shows. The fact that he’s in constant movement but also puts his unique spin on everything he touches is what makes his unpredictability so welcoming. In collaboration with amazing producers such as internationally renowned producer Lido, Coucheron, Filip Kollsete, Vinter and Axxe his sound is defined and his constant search for progress makes the album “Midt imellom magisk og manisk” showcases a new side of Unge Ferrari but with a well-known foundation.

Zes – Follow

Nov 29 2018

The latest single to drop on the Cloudkid imprint “Follow” by ZES is by far one of the most unique songs I have ever heard. The artistic creation fills a void of emotion with its somber tone, but uplifting melody.

There is a new producer on the rise that recently came across my radar that goes by the name YLY. His latest single “Alive” is a chilled out track featuring euphoric vocals from Julia Lostrom. Together the two have created something truly majestic.

Milan based Crookers shouldn’t need an introduction, Phra is no stranger to exploring new directions and he’s been banging out fidget house, bass banger baile funk experiments etc along with collaborations with the likes of Jeremih, Mr. Oizo, Kid Cudi, Hudmo, Wiley, DJ Funk, Yelle, Kiddy Smile & many more. Between dropping records for Defected & doing massive production work within italian rap scene, he cooked up the smashing ghetto house inspired “150bpm Emotions EP” for French label Moveltraxx which will be released on Friday November 23rd.

We can offer up the frantic and video game sounding track “Briscola” as an exclusive premiere right here on Discobelle.

Those of you in London can catch Crookers together with Big Dope P, Naina, Morgan Hislop, Sherelle and Danielle Ness at Ace Hotel on November 30th.

tuomi – Girl

Nov 20 2018

A wonderful piece of subtle electronica influenced r’n’b from Brighton producer tuomi, “Girl” has already seen support from among others BBC Radio 1 Xtra.

NYC-based legend Joeski has been at the forefront in his hometown for decades now, on his brand new “Mind Funk” EP which will be released via Dirtybird Records on Friday November 23rd, you can hear just how skilled a producer he is. Joeski is all about building layers of sound fused with drums and rhythms that sit perfectly together.

We here at Discobelle are able to premiere the B-side track “Tha RMX”, which is built on a rolling and steadfast wobbly bass, superbly crisp high hats and hypnotic vocals that together forms an exquisite slab of housed up awesomeness.
