After they landed a top spot on Hype Machine together, the award-winning US-based composer for the Chelsea Handler TV-show and electronic pop producer Memoryy along with NBC The Voice semifinalist Troy Ramey (that to this date has 5+ million plays on Spotify and a #1 spot on iTunes) collaborates once again on new single “First Love” (released tomorrow Friday, May 22nd) which we can premiere on Discobelle today!

The track pushes a minimal arrangement with a steadfast guitar-based beat but it’s a heart-wrenching, slow-paced pop track about lost love and comes with a spectacular, soulful vocal performance from Troy Ramey. “First Love” has just been deservedly so nominated for 2 awards including “Best Vocal Performance” for the 2020 New Mexico Music Awards.

Dutch/Moroccan producer/dj R3HAB team up with NYC-based Israeli producer/dj GATTÜSO for a cover version of the iconic 90’s track “Creep” by Radiohead.

The track marks the first-ever recording for Spotify’s inaugural “mint Singles” program and opens up with angelic vocals before shifting gears into a big-room house track that’s destined for world takeover.

Los Angeles based producer Boh Doran takes on influences ranging from 90’s indie, soul and r’n’b blending those with instant dancey pop hooks and stunning vocals. She has been hailed as an artist to watch by media outlets such as Glamour, Vogue Italia, The Huffington Post etc. and her debut solo single “White Knuckles” was the 7th most viral song on Spotify’s global charts. New single “Warrior” is an empowering song with anthemlike qualities where the softer vocals are interspersed with the booming track.

“This song is about facing opposition in daily life with strength. i’m currently 38 weeks pregnant and am still releasing music despite the archaic cultural message that soon to be mothers should be hidden. where are they, we don’t see them especially in music for a reason.”

UK soulful hip hop outfit Jungle Brown recently released their collab single “We On” (taken from their new album “Full Circle”, released via legendary label Mr Bongo) with the always-on point Sampa The Great. The track manages to capture those late summer feelings and it’s filled with irresistible boom bap vibes.

Jungle Brown have shared the stage with the likes of De La Soul, Ghostface Killah, Lowkey, Akala and Donaeo, and played at major UK festivals such as Glastonbury, Boomtown and Lovebox. Their debut album “Flight 314” boasts more than a million streams to date and it spent much of 2016 in Apple Music’s “Best of 2016” category, the album was also featured on various Spotify playlists and visuals on SB.TV. The trio were also requested to curate an exclusive playlist for Tidal and attracted attention from New York with Beats 1’s very own, Ebro.

Los Angeles based house producer/dj Bobby Nourmand had a huge year last year 2017 with support from big media outlets such Mixmag, DJ Mag, and Pete Tong on BBC Radio, alongside a number of chart-topping accolades across Spotify, Shazam, Hype Machine etc.

To start off 2018, Bobby is unveiling the launch of his own label DITN with the release of his “SUBTERRANEAN” EP. The EP marks him moving into a darker sounding territory with a focus on dark bassline and hard hitting drums, it’s still soulful and moving house music but with an edge that slants toward a techno sound.

Bristol duo Paragon (Tom Wheeler & Sam Shotaka) have with only four releases made their mark on the airways and in the clubs, gaining support from Spotify (Fresh Finds, New Music Friday UK), BBC Radio 1 (Toddla T), 1Xtra, Triple J (Hitlist), Kiss, Capital and many more. The duo incorporates elements of UK garage, house, drum and bass, dubstep and grime in their sound.

Now they team up with vocalist David Boomah (who is perhaps best known for his work with UK drum and bass artists such as Shy FX and Rene LaVice) for new single “Get Involved” (drops tomorrow February 15th via Paragon Sound/[PIAS]) which is a massive soul-infused bassed up house tune that has all the makings of being a serious party destroyer.

“David’s vocals just cut through anything as heavy and dark as you can make. Perfect for the style, he gets the message through and lifts it higher on each verse and chorus. Musically its about tension, release, and anticipation. You know what’s coming, enjoy the journey and then when it hits it gives you that rush and keeps you hooked for the next drop”
