FSQ is a New York outfit headed up by Discobelle family member Chuck Fishman together with Grammy-nominated GKoop, Morgan Wiley, Chas Bronz, and One Era. FSQ have a slew of amazing releases under their belt and they’ve shared the stage with funk legends such as George Clinton, Parliament-Funkadelic!

We here at Discobelle are extremely proud to be able to offer up the exclusive premiere of FSQ’s epic 10 minutes long rework of the Ozgood and Sa’d The Hourchild Ali single track “No Couture” (drops tomorrow January 17th via Soul Clap Records and which also features close friend/collaborator, the supertalented Jamaica-based producer/artist David Marston).

The rework pits a tight, strutting disco rhythm against ethereal sounding guitar chords that intertwine with Sa’d Ali’s booming house music vocal sermons and a stomping bassline. The track is the perfect companion on a cold, dark January weekend and will immediately lift your spirits.

Western Australia-based producer Loston burst onto the global electronic scene with unique sounding reworks of James Blake, London Grammar, and Banks, alongside a collaboration with Ta-ku called “No Reason” and then retreated into writing music instead. His new track “Disappear” which is his first release after the two-year hiatus and the first single off his upcoming six-track EP “Echoes” is a pulsating and huge sounding track.

“I feel like there is room in modern music for creative expression, rather than trying to work within the constraints of what works for ‘Playlists’, or how it is going to play out at festivals. I began singing and sampling my own voice, using that as a starting point and building song structures or passages around it, intentionally ignoring any thoughts of the environment that it would be consumed in by the listener. Walk away, roll the dice, be different….What I was left with was a much more honest and real record, with no focus on a single.”

UK house producer Sandy Turnbull has had a pretty amazing 2016 with the release his latest EP “After Comiskey Park” which picked up some prestigious spots including Mixmag Tune of The Month and DMC Single of The Week. He recently completed a DJ mix for Ministry of Sound that stated it was “one of the best” they’ve published this year and he just completed this rolling disco reworking of the Jamiroquai track “Canned Heat” which we can premiere right here on Discobelle.

Don’t forget to check out his smashing new EP “Make Me Cry” which is released today.

You know how Los Angeles based producer/dj Bobby Nourmand has been responsible for some seriously addictive and soulful deep house gems during 2016, well it’s about time for another one. “D E E P In N Y” is a a reworking of his summer smash track “DEEP” and showcases swerving keys, rapping courtesy of New York based artists D.O.C. and Goodmorning and a dark, rolling bassline.

Our buddy VinylAddicted, the Greek, disco-maestro and head honcho at Editor’s Kutz, Diggin’ Disco Deep, WYMM and now, his latest project: From Disco To House (or just FDTH)… popped over this lovely little rework from the inaugural release of his new imprint. From the track’s title, it won’t be hard to guess where he drew his inspiration from, however, there is a bit of a curve ball as the sample source is from a rare, unknown cover of the eponymous, McFadden & Whitehead classic. Expect loads of chunky drums, filtered breaks and loopy samples that are sure to tickle your boogie feather!

Available next week on a limited 10″ vinyl.

About a month ago Du Tonc gave away their stellar sounding rework of the 1992 released Annie Lennox track “Little Bird”, support came from the likes of Tensnake, The Magician, Yuksek and The Aston Shuffle.

Now, friend and filmmaker Stef Smith has made a “found footage music video” paying homage to the creative force that is Annie Lennox. Exploring both her incredible imagination through performance and quiet sensitivity in the real world. Stef said she wanted to show both her moments of joy and reflection previously captured on film.
