The debut single/EP “We Are Stars” from up and coming Edinburgh based artist Callum Beattie has already amassed over 1 million Spotify streams in just one month, Callum is slated to perform at a string of major festivals this summer and is certainly one of the artists to watch out for in 2017. The remix version of the EP drops tomorrow May 12th and we here at Discobelle got our mitts on the premiere of a remix done by one of our favorite dance music producers, namely Italian madman Riva Starr.

The outstanding remix is focused on a steadfast house beat, a hypnotic melody and Callum’s soulful vocals making this a huge anthem for this summer season.

Norwegian nu-disco prodigy Cavego is about to unleash his “Red Light” single (a track that features the vocal offerings of Australian singer/songwriter Arielle) via Finnish label Youth Control.

We here at Discobelle can premiere the remix from Finnish producer Koobra (who has produced under the Helsinki 78-82 outfit and also as a solo artist), he delivers an elegant sounding and sparkling disco house remix, keeping the hooks and catchiest elements of the original version while adding his own flavour.

The track has already picked up support from the likes of Thomas Gold, Roger Sanchez, Cedric Gervais, Riva Starr, Vanilla Ace, Felix Da Housecat, Chus & Ceballos and more.

Man, I don’t know about you, but I’m loving the summer anthems starting to come out. One track that’s causing a heatwave is London producer Riva Starr‘s “The Loft,” out this week on Cajual Records. From the sizzling high hats to classic 80’s stabs and vocals by legendary diva Dajae, it has all the marks of a Chicago house anthem. The track starts with Dajae reminiscing on parties back in the day, dropping shouts out to founding fathers Ron Hardy and Frankie Knuckles, and ultimately reminding us that “There’s no party like a house party.” The 808 snares flare in and out of classic keys whipping the crowd into a frenzy as smoky vocals tell us, “It’s house music.” A burner from front to back, you may need a cigarette by the time the claps fade out.

The EP also includes “Viniz,” a collab with Cajual label head Cajmere, and “Fever Pitch,” a tweaked out, bouncy tech house track. Listen to “The Loft” below and buy it here.

Me and Niklas made a mix for the show Musikguiden i P3 on Swedish national radio P3.

The concept of the mix was to say goodbye to the exquisite summer that we had this year and to be prepared for the upcoming bleakness known as autumn, we’ve filled an hour with deep and dark techno/house which includes tracks from Riva Starr, DJ Nibc, Franskild and Monkey Safari along with remixes from the likes of Dixon, Doctor Dru, Forrest, Maya Jane Coles etc. Tune in and enjoy!

Berlin based producer/dj and founder of go-to tropical bass label Man RecordingsDaniel Haaksamn – teams up with Angolan singer Coréon Dú for his new summer anthemlike single “Lemba” that sounds like Berlin minimal goes afro house and the track has already seen support from the likes of Laurent Garnier, Riva Starr, Sinden, Roundtable Knights, Oliver $, Foamo, Schlachthofbronx, Nickodemus and many others.

All hail MVSEVM! The next release from MVSEVM comes armed to the teeth with transcendent big room vibes.

Take the astoundingly punchy “Expectations”, which sets things off to an immediate sizzle. Bleeding out with infectious vocals from a world famous singer, it’s always teetering on the edge of overheating and causing a dub-techno-meets-throbbing-indie-house-anthem meltdown of sorts. Everything careens towards the four minute mark, at which point the gloves come off and things degenerate into what sounds like a futuristic karaoke party taking place with mutated dolphins at the edge of the Pacific Ocean at the beginning of armageddon, the sky coloured a streaky cotton candy pink and blue.

“Pori Jazz” comes out the gate with a sizzling electricity simmering in the some deeply satisfying bassy horns and a trifecta of drums fluctuating over a baseline that’s sure to cause a few goosebumps on a decent sound system. It’s a slice of house maximalism served up perfectly – recommended highly for fans of early Zombie Disco Squad, Round Table Knights, or any kind of stuff that immediately makes you start stomping and clapping uncontrollably on first listen.

If Bob Ross from The Joy of Painting dropped peyote and went on a three day spirit quest, it’s very likely that he’d hear something like “Calligraphy” at the peak of his hallucination. A true big room anthem that’s simultaneously focused and wild, careening towards a blindingly bright climax, all rainbows, synth stabs, hands raised in the air, like some mp3 based new age religion based around the concept of ‘good vibe synthesis’. The dub version is optional for those who care more about dancing than drawing techniques.

Finally, Obi Blanche pumps some extra muscle onto “Calligraphy’s” already booming breakdown, something reminiscent of the twerky innovation in Renaissance Man’s “Spraycan” except with a gymnasium full of chopped accordians instead of an airhorn. Pushing the original into slightly weirder, darker grounds; it’s dance music to make your eyes roll into the back of your head.

MVSEVM has already garnered big support for their releases from Brodinski, Sinden, Fatboy Slim, Laidback Luke, Fake Blood, Crookers, Riva Starr, Feadz and way more!
