The latest Trunkfunk release comes from label honcho NIBC who teams up with fellow Gothenburg producer SAAG for “Sleepless in Zimbabwe” which will drop Monday June 29th with the releaseparty being held tonight at Yaki-Da in Gothenburg.

Starting things off is the gorgeous and colourful sounding title track, which is all about bright synths and handclaps all encapsulated in a feeling of pure warmth and sunshine which combined makes sure to put a bounce in your step. Remixes on the EP comes from British producer Man Power (of Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondant label) who doles out more melodic and atmospheric version of the original. The duo known as Casino Times strays away from the original with their steady remix of crunched up synths.

Austin based, vocal trio, Keeper come correct with their latest single “Next To Me” with a little production help from San Antonio’s MoonDoctoR. Blending slick, futuristic beats and melodies along with the ladies cooing harmonies, the team creates a smooth, R&B flavored joint sounding like Brandy transmitting from the deepest reaches of the known galaxy. The tune is self-released and available now.

Believe EP 500x500

Spanish house maestro, Playless drops into the highly respected Azuli Records camp with his latest, double-header offering in the form of the “Believe EP.” The title cut is deep, mean and utilizes some serious bass grooves and low slung vocals to emote a heavy, soulful club workout. B-side, “I’ll House You” takes things a tiny bit lighter with a super bouncy bass riff and playful blips… look out for that break down, it’s a big one!

Swedish festival Into The Valley has already been named one of the top festivals in the world and it hasn’t even taken place yet, it’s a two day celebration of electronic music where Dalhalla – a former limestone quarry and one of the most unique venues in Sweden – is rebuilt to an open air club. The festival takes place from July 31st to August 2nd in Dalhalla, outside of Rättvik which is located about 280 kilometres from Stockholm and tickets are available here. Artists performing includes Four Tet, Mount Kimbie, Nicolas Jaar, Ricardo Villalobos, John Talabot, Richie Hawtin, Carl Craig, Âme,
Axel Boman, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Nina Kraviz, Ida Engberg, Benoit & Sergio, Genius Of Time, Dixon, Kim Ann Foxman, Baba Stiltz, Kornel Kovacs etc.

Into The Valley takes the pulse of the city to the heart of the forest. By being an extension of previous projects the club feeling is intact, though the context is different. An urban club environment is recreated, and maximized while sound, machinery and lineup aligns with Dalhalla’s majestic backdrop of trees, water and sky. The limestone quarry transforms into a stew of deep electronics and artificially created light warped far from its original destination. Into The Valley is a dream come true for everyone involved, and expectations are high.

We here at Discobelle have teamed up with the organizers Segren Hedlund and will present exclusive mixes from some of the performing artists in the weeks leading up to the festival, first out we have an amazing mix from Stockholm dj/producer Jessie Granqvist who gives us 58 minutes of dark and brooding techno, perfect to listen to in the summer heat.
