After many years in London, arranging clubs, creating art and being in electro bands, Petter Wallenberg (check his facebook site) returned to his native Sweden and realised that many of the things he had run away from were actually quite fun and loveable. And so he started Mums Mums (Swedish for yum yum) – a club, a magazine, a creative collective and a movement, bringing aesthetic chaos to the streamlined Scandistyle of Stockholm with twisted happenings, porn musicals and pig-nosed hostesses. All to the soundtrack of dance music from a time when love was the message.

Now Mums Mums turns into a new incarnation, that of a record label, as he releases his debut album. The album itself, Legends, is one big stage featuring the whole cast of his background. A fusion of Disco with old school Hiphop, Electro, Lovers rock, Punk and classic House, on Legends Wallenberg collaborates with his favorite female artists of all time. Stars like Ari Up from pioneering punk group The Slits appear alongside early Swedish rap icons Leila K and Efti (of cult girl group Midi, Maxi & Efti), next to new edgy talent like Mapei and JWL B (of Florida rappers Yo Majesty). It also features soul divas Victoria Wilson James (Soul II Soul and The Shamen) and Octavia St Laurent from the legendary documentary about the vogue scene, Paris Is Burning. Both Ari Up and Octavia St Laurent later died of cancer, making their appearances even more precious.

Wallenberg’s first single, Legendary (featuring Leila K), is released on the 30th of May 2011. The lyrics are based on a triumphantly bitchy line from Paris is burning, introducing the album’s battle cry, “I’m legendary – you’re not!”

Big name producers, DJ’s, fans and beginners – you are all invited to make your own version of “Legendary” (The acapella is available on his website). Mums Mums Records and Cosmos Music Group will then pick out the remixes they like the most and release them both digitally and on an exclusive vinyl 12″!

Wallenberg is looking for your very special remix. Do your thang and remember – you are legendary!

Get the accapella and read more on how to turn in your remix here.

We here at Discobelle have teamed up with Havana Cultura to bring you a Gilles Peterson remix contest where the grand prize is a trip for two to Havanna + tickets to the Rotilla Electronic Music Festival. Alright, here are the details:

“In October 2009, Havana Cultura and DJ Gilles Peterson collaborated to create a double album of modern Cuban music called Gilles Peterson Presents Havana Cultura: New Cuba Sound. Then, June 2010 saw the launch of a remix of the original album, Gilles Peterson Presents: Havana Cultura Remixed. Peterson, an early proponent of the new Cuban sound, personally commissioned some of the world’s biggest DJs to participate on the album, including Carl Cox, Louie Vega of Masters at Work, Solal of Gotan project, MJ Cole, and Cuban DJs Wichy de Vedado and Edgaro. The result was something extraordinary—an infectious marriage of both old and new that perfectly showcases the energy and ambiance of modern Havana. Now, we would like to take modern Cuban music out of the studio and put it back in the hands of the people. Brainchild of Havana Cultura and the world-renowned Gilles Peterson, the Gilles Peterson Remix Contest is an online contest that gives aspiring DJs and music enthusiasts the opportunity to bring today’s Cuban sounds into the spotlight of dance music.

The rules are simple: just go to Havana Club’s Facebook page and become a fan. From there you can download one of two original tracks. Then, it’s up to you! You’ll have one month (April 1-29) to craft the most innovative, interesting and dance-worthy remix possible. After, add your remix to the GP Remix Contest drop box on Soundcloud.com and watch for the results released every week.

Each week for one month Gilles Peterson will judge the submitted remixes alongside some of the dance music scene’s most popular bloggers. After choosing their favorites, the 10 final favorite tracks will be featured on a Havana Cultura online compilation album. Best of all, the grand prize winner will win a trip for two to Havana, Cuba and tickets to the Rotilla Festival for Electronic Music!

French electropopsters in Pony Pony Run Run, are returning after their superhit “Hey You” (which we’ve mentioned here on Discobelle in the past) and also their Victoire de la Musique (the French equivalent to a Grammy award) with new single “Walking On A Line”. The new track has remixes for miles, we’re glad to be able to give you these two remixes from two fresh French producers who have already begun to make some major noise. HighBloo and Raziek each gives you their take on the new single where Belgian youngin HighBloo stretches out the original version galavanting into more of that bouncy Dutchlike house territory and Montpellier bad boy Raziek transforms it with the help of hypnotic accordions into a Funana sounding tune.
