Next stop on the Discobelle Premiere Train is this lovely little throw back jam from the lads over at Krankbrother. This pair of British producers/DJs/Promoters/Label Heads/actual brothers are dropping their latest release, the “Dreamscape EP,” on Friday and we have the B-Side cut, “Disappear Here,” for your listening pleasure.

Ethereal pads set our scene and filtered arps and melodies build until a softly subdued, 4/4 kick sets the pace. Taking us all the way up to the 2 minute mark, our basic groove gives way to a classic breakbeat as a Moog-flavored bass melody chimes in and takes the vibes higher and higher. The true Balearic nature of the track unfolds over a generous, 8 minute arrangement that is more than likely to soundtrack many a sunrise set over the coming months. Gorgeous!

NYC duo Tempers are releasing their “Fundamental Fantasy” EP this Friday February 24th via The Vinyl Factory. It’s a follow-up to the band’s 2015 debut “Services” which won praise from the likes of Pitchfork, The Fader, Stereogum and Noisey to name a few.

“‘Fundamental Fantasy’ is about exploring the creative scenery of romantic illusions. Our need for them, how we justify them to ourselves, that moment when the imagined story line collides with reality. The ways we fictionalize people to fit into the narratives we have about love – to reflect our own beliefs, virtues and flaws. It is about celebrating fantasies swelling and getting undone, so we can pick up the pieces and craft new ones that serve us better’

The duo (Jasmine Golestaneh and Eddie Cooper) create an emotional and tonal tension of sensual and mechanical impulses with their brand of dark electronica that sets haunting songs to a sinister disco beat and pop melodies floating in an almost industrial soundscape.

Here in an exclusive Discobelle premiere, Paris-based producer Joakim remixes the band’s latest single “Tail In My Mouth” into a highly hypnotic dark, leftfield electroish remix that’s propelled forward with a steadfast beat.

Detroit-born but now Brooklyn-based rapper Bberlay (nee Bryanna Berlay) draws inspiration from the likes of Kreayshawn and Amanda Blank, club music and unusual electronic rhythms.

We here at Discobelle can premiere “BRASSY”, her first single and eye-popping music video debut on which we get a nonchalant rap style over a minimalistic, b-more handclap infused banger produced by Baltimore legend Mighty Mark. She’s also gearing up for the release of a full-length mixtape which is sure to turn heads.

On April 14th legendary Swiss electronic duo In Flagranti present their pre-internet-record-buying-phoneline-concept-album-come-mixtape “Sprezzatura” which will be released via Codek Records.

“Back in the early 80s when I lived in Switzerland, I use to travel to Italy a lot for clubs and record shopping. In Rimini there was a great store called Disco Piu. They had this service where if you were out of town or from another country, you could sign-up and get a cassette of all the new releases in the post every week. Each new track was recorded for about a minute and there was a voice counting – so you could write down the tracks you liked – then phone or fax the track numbers and the date of the cassette, they’d send you the records and you’d pay on delivery, which was amazing”, says In Flagranti’s Sasa Crnobrnja on ‘Sprezzatura’s inspiration, concept and format. He further explains, “So this album will be available as a mix on cassette with each track playing for a minute or two. You’re basically listening to it like a mixtape and in the same manner as the tapes from Disco Piu. You’ll be able to choose your favourite tracks from ‘Sprezzatura’ and buy the full versions as downloads.”

We here at Discobelle can premiere the superb and hypnotic disco stomper “My Sordid Little Affair”.

Adelaide by way of Los Angeles and Chicago producer/dj James Curd drops his new record “I Get Up To DC” via excellent Berlin based label Exploited this coming monday and it’s already seen support from many dance music profiles.

We here at Discobelle get to premiere B-side track “Disco Fool” which incorporates a funky organ, a strutting bassline and ultra smooth disco pads.

“One night while I was working in my new studio I got a little homesick because a fest that takes place down the street from my building was going on back home in Chicago. Derrick was playing and I grabbed some of the audio from the end of his set of him talking to the crowd and dropped it into ‘I Get Up”. “Disco Fool” was one of the only songs I made in a studio I built with an SSL desk before realizing a studio under a club was a terrible idea.”

Montreal dance music star Tiga returns to the dancefloor and to Turbo Recordings with new single “Eye Luv U” (co-produced by Quinn of Paranoid London) which is his first new material since last years “Blondes Have More Fun” release.

“Eye Luv U” will be the first of a series of releases from Tiga on Turbo in 2017, including a fresh collaboration with Audion aka Matthew Dear.

“The title came to me while I was playing a pyramid that had been converted into a multi-purpose event space,” says the Canadian DJ/Producer. “The hieroglyphics over what is now the coat check made me imagine a world in which pictures could mean words and words could mean anything. The thing about wordplay is that it’s fascinating to conceive of different realities informed by different systems of meaning, and how each reality would invariably bend to vault me to the pinnacle of all possible worlds. It’s humbling, really.”

We here at Discobelle have been following Tiga’s career closely since we started 10 years ago and we’re super pleased to be able to premiere the remix from German producer/dj Butch who wins us over with his amazing “80s Warehouse Acid Remix”, that title pretty much gives away exactly what you’ll hear with hypnotic squelchy pads and bleeps.

Toronto-based electronic experimentalist and Caribou collaborator Pick A Piper (nee Brad Weber) will release his second collection of songs in the form of new album “Distance” (via Tin Angel) on March 3rd.

He has ventured pretty much everywhere from Chernobyl and Guatemala to the Canadian Arctic, northern mountains of Japan and south America since the first release as Pick A Piper and on the upcoming new album, he definitely lets that influence show. A bewitching slow-rave travelogue of sounds and stories picked up along the way, the album delivers an eclectic mix of old and new with everything from early synth pioneers to quirky 80s synth disco to Algerian funk to contemporary edits.

It’s a great source of heartache, but also a great source of joy,” Weber explains of an album “about trying to balance connectivity with chronically being away.”

We can give you an exclusive glimpse of the sounds that forged the album with this premiere of his most recent mix.
