As they say, all good things must come to an end. As is the case with one of our favorites over here at DBHQ… Icelandic Disco Wizard, B.G. Baarregaard has opted to retire his tongue-twisting alias for new monikers and fresh pastures. Not giving up on music by any means, the producer merely wishes for a clean slate, which he’s receiving in more ways than one. With an emanate move back to his native homeland of Iceland… New beginnings are abound for the chap. We at Discobelle wish him the best in his new endeavors and are honored to host this farewell mix from B.G. Baarregaard!

The “Buskerud Blend” is a mega-mix of sorts that showcases B.G.’s work over the last 18 months whilst living in Buskerud County, Norway. Featuring reworks and original compositions released and unreleased, this is truly a blissful, “portrait of the artist” and a proper au revoir to this unique talent.

Detroit native and all around, a-class lad, Pontchartrain (nee Dustin Alexander), dropped by the offices and left this lovely little mix for our exclusive series. The disco wunderkind blasted on to the scene with heavily lauded releases on Whiskey Disco, which he now co-runs with label founder, Sleazy McQueen. In Addition, Pontch has found recent success on WD sub-label, Lovedancing, as well as Kolour LTD and Detroit’s Rocksteady Disco. His brand of re-edit wizardly is earmarked with perfection and see’s him reimagining and reinforcing forgotten disco and funk tunes…updating them for modern dance floors.

We’ve featured Pontchartrain a several times here in the past and it’s great to finally add him to our arsenal of Discobelle Mix providers. Strap in and enjoy!

*due to some unforeseen health issues, we’ve had to skip DB Mix 128 for the time being but hope to have it up next week….standby!

For his sophomore release on Whiskey Disco, Dutch disco boy, Olivier Boogie drops his “I Know You Care EP” and we’ve gotta tell ya…. it’s super hot! Comprised of four tracks, this brand-spankin-new, 12″ slab blurs the line between house and disco re-edits with it’s loopy and ultra-funky cuts. “I Know You Care” is smooth and sweet with a beefed up bottom end while “Come Inside” is a hands-in-the-air, disco explosion of sensuality. On the B-side, “How High” brings a hypnotic bass groove together with lush vibraphone snips and sultry vocals while the closing tune, “Watch Your Step” bumps up the good time vibes with heavy doses of dancefloor swagger. Essential purchase, ya’ll!

Detroit-based wunderkind, Dustin Alexander, better known by the alias, Pontchartrain, breaks in the freshly minted label, Lovedancing (a new label helmed by Whiskey Disco patriarch, Sleazy McQueen), with it’s debut release, the “Burnin’ EP.” Comprised of three cuts on a lovely 12″ disc, things kick off with the title cut, “Burnin,” a tune aptly titled as it’s sure to set more than a few dancfloors ablaze. Relying on a classic, Gwen McCrae tune as the framework, we get a looped-out, beefed-up version ideal for any club situation. “Huggin'” takes things a little deeper with spacey pads and dub flourishes while the closing number, “Sinnin'” is an epic rework of a jazz classic that transforms the original into pure, peak time euphoria.

Brooklyn’s latest mystery duo, PIXELATED follow up with the exceptionally blissful, ‘Caught Up In The Rapture,’ which utilizes the silkiest Anita Baker sample and some 303 inspired acid riffs… ‘rapturous,’ to say the least.

Flip the slab over and Alkalino wastes no time getting busy with ‘Day To Day,’ a soulful declaration of love and devotion that no man can put asunder. Wrapping things up nicely is The Silver Rider’s housed up take on an undisputed classic with ‘Hidden Rung,’ mono-leads and organ stabs aplenty, this mid-tempo stepper is sure to be a useful dance floor weapon.

Generally recognized as a re-edit label, Whiskey Disco shakes things up a bit with the latest from Icelandic producer, B.G. Baarregaard and the ‘Disco Inn Ep’…. his third solo release for the imprint. Kicking it off, the title track wastes no time injecting the funk into your stride with some heavy handclaps, a Moog bassline, some sweet stabs and beautiful ah’s and oh’s… a total winner on this one! B-side, ‘Undercover Lover’ sees B.G. add his signature flair to some nice, 80’s source material while closing track, ‘Kaffibarinn’ pays homage to the legendary Icelandic club, formerly owned by Damon Albarn!
