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.

Vancouver producer/dj Pat Lok is one of our favorites here at Discobelle HQ and this dreamy and warm house remix of the new single track “Dive In” (drops this friday November 20th) from MakeLove showcases just why we rank him so highly.

“Dive in” is a love song. In all of the music I write there is a plead from one to another. Wanting or needing love and not being able to hide that affection. At the time of writing I was watching a lot of Charlie Chaplin films and listening to a lot of Paul McCartney when he decided to go disco for 20 minutes. Chaplin always played characters that do ridiculous acts to earn the love of others. Unashamed dancing and unashamed love.”

Vancouver based producer Pat Lok is back with a new original that goes by the name “Your Lips” and features vocals from Canadian indie-R&B talent Dirty Radio. A silky mixture of deep disco and soul, it’s the type of song that gets stuck in your head for hours on end, it’s smooth melody and a driving bassline fits nicely on almost any dancefloor.

The track will be released next month on Hear This Records, just in time for his upcoming North American tour. You can check out the single and tour dates down below.

It’s Friday! Which means that instead of being at work, we’re on a manhunt to find the best tracks to help us kickstart the weekend. Right now we’ve got Autograf‘s “Dream” that has been remixed by Discobelle favorite Pat Lok. With dreamy vibes that match the smoothness of the warm summer wind, this remix has us feeling some type of way.

Check out the track below!

We took a little break from scouring the corners of the internet to face the desert resort town that is Palm Springs. Admittedly, we music writers prefer prowling out to dark clubs when the moon is full instead of spending two full days under the sun, but we fell in love with the friendly people, great vibes, and stunning sets. Although we loved every act that was playing, there were some really great performances from a spectacular few. Check out our favorite DJ’s from the weekend, and let us know who you enjoyed!
