The good folks in Safari Sound together with Petter and Red Stripe brings us “A Reggae Christmas” (reprise from last year but still just as good and very much needed for the holidays).

“It all started a few weeks ago when we had an “early Caribbean Christmas lunch” with the godfather of Swedish rap, Petter. Petter is a big fan of Safari Sound mixtapes and he wondered if we would be interested in doing a mixtape project together with him and Red Stripe. This is the result: nearly an hour of “reggae Christmas classics” mixed by DJ Shirkhan and Sammy K. Give thanx for the idea and opportunity Petter and big up Red Stripe, Crazy Youths and The Soul Lounge.

We wish ya’ll a Merry Reggae Christmas and A Dancehall New Year!”

God Jul from the Discobelle crew!

Christmas is nearly upon us and with their latest mixtape Malmö sound system Safari Sound makes sure we feel the holiday spirit, albeit in a slightly different way.

Our friends in The Soul Lounge (best hip hop blog in Sweden) started their own label Soul Lounge Records and today we get the inaugural release “Nattbuss” which also happens to be the first official single from Swedish rapper Toffer. Toffer has via numerous mixtapes and collaborations built up a momentum here in Sweden and “Nattbuss” is produced by acclaimed duo Up2NoGood who have previously worked with Swedish artists Newkid and Simon Emanuel. The single also contains huge remixes from Marcus Price, Denniz Prime & Howard Who. It’s avaliable now on Spotify and iTunes so listen and buy!

In connection with the release we get a slew of bonus remixes from the likes of L-Wiz (grab it over at All Out Dubstep), Daniel Savio (can be found at PSL), DJ Large (available at Kingsize Magazine) and we here at Discobelle can present you with a bootyshaking remix from Stockholm global bass marauders Cocotaxi.

New Orleans turned Angeleno crooner/rapper Frank Ocean has been the talk of the internet as of late, much due to his amazing mixtape “Nostalgia, Ultra” but also due to the fact that along with his cohorts Tyler The Creator, Hodgy Beats and Earl Sweatshirt he forms the hip hop collective Odd Future. Local rapper Lazee adds some Swedish swagger to the two Frank Ocean tracks “Novacane” and “Songs For Women”. (Thanks to The Soul Lounge)
