Yep, Santogold looks to be just as blogged in 2008 as she was last year. This has been all over the blogs today but it’s too good to pass up.

Forget about those Myspace rips floating around, here is “L.E.S Artistes” in all its 320 kbps glory. We absolutely love Santis distinctive voice, even though this remix by XXXChange doesn’t deter too much from the original but he does manage add some extra flair to it with drums and a bleepy synth taking over from the guitar based original version.

Dance music producer/dj Kocky is returning to the scene after last years brilliant album “Kingdom Came”. We just received an exclusive sampler of the second album “Stadium Status” from La Vida Locash. It will be released in April and looks like it will – just as the previous album – feature alot of interesting tracks and collaborations.

5. Oh!

The great people in La Vida Locash are also starting off big in 2008, not just with releasing music and doing parties, they’ll be heavy on the television business too since they’ll be doing three shows for swedish national channel ZTV (a short trailer can be found below).

We just got some Lykke Li – I’m Good I’m Gone 7″ to give away.

This time we are going to do a repeat question. We want you to give us suggestion for more new DJ’s that you would like us to ask for a Mixin’ It Up. Send in your proposal here. If we like your suggestion you get a Lykke Li 7″. The best suggestion also gets a Discobelle T-shirt (suggestion of up and coming DJs are more likely to get a prize).

BONUS: A video from swedish national TV. (Thanks to Niklas Loman)


Busy days here at Discobelle HQ but it’s all good.

This remix was dropped for us by Hatchmatik in his Mixin’ It Up that we posted back in december. Out of all the Chromeo remixes last year (and boy, there were plenty), this is one of our favorites. We’ve been waiting for the mastered version since december and here it is in all it’s glory. Hatchmatik adds some of his signature freshness, bangs it up and then sprinkles some Teki rapping on top, voila we get a track that surely will get things moving.
