Against All Logic is the alter ego of Nicolas Jaar, the brand new outstanding album “2017 – 2019” (released via his own imprint Other People) is composed of hard-hitting drums, bone-crunching bass, chaotic sound effects and dramatic pop samples along with his signature sounds.
The album’s opening track “Fantasy” samples the 2003 Beyoncé and Sean Paul collaboration track “Baby Boy” and it’s a magnificent piece of bhangra infused futuristic pop.
Big premiere today here at Discobelle! 29-year-old Stockholm based producer/dj Binnie Smalls is making waves as a hard working and acclaimed producer within the typically male dominated dancehall scene.
Back in May she remixed the track “Ben Yuh Back” by Ward 21 which also featured dancehall legend Sean Paul, and it was later pegged for an official remix. We’re delighted to premiere the newly finished banging and feel good sounding remix for Swedish rapper Mwuana and his single track “Straight Away” (the track is lifted off his newly released album “Triller”). This remix marks her 20th completed project since January.
The 2012 edition of the Notting Hill Carnival in London is just 7 days away and this year sees the Red Bull Music Academy x Major Lazer Soundsystem returning to the Westway in force.
