This is what they had to say regarding the mix: “Finding our way in to the new year we thought we’d drop a bag of tunes that compliment an early January morning. Recorded live from our deck looking at the frosty, sea views in our hometown…” Enjoy!

bawrut

Bawrut is an old friend of ours here at Discobelle, an Italian born producer/dj that nowadays calls Madrid home, a city where he’s started up his own label Silencio (which has already garnered attention of house music aficionados worldwide with a series of strong releases).

This exclusive mix for us here at Discobelle is a full on acidic/Chicago house assault filled with a spectacular groove and some serious tribal elements which will most likely have you forget all about Christmas and instead go search for a club where you can dance til you can’t stand up anymore.

PS. Bawrut’s new EP ” Rumba” was premiered by Boiler Room about two months ago and will be out on Ransom Note Rec end of January 2017. All the 3 tracks are included in the mixtape, check out the title track below.

nhan-solo

Berlin based producer/dj Nhan Solo (who also spearheads prominent label Mother Recordings) got some Scandinavian hype going with a mix offering dropping both over at our extended fam in HMWL and with us here at Discobelle during the same week.

This mix of only Mother Recordings tracks is the perfect beacon of warm sounding and soulful house to make us last through what seems like an everlasting period of of darkness, 1 hour of vibesfilled tunes in a flawless and superbly solid flow.

Leon Else is a new name on my radar this week. The British-born musician and trained dancer put out a groovy single called “Dance” in order to reflect how music can be a form of therapy and I can’t quite tell if I like the song or the video better – they’re both incredible. When asked about “Dance,” Else had this to say: “The song is about dancing as a way to make depression go away,” says Else of the new track. “It is about how music can be like medicine and finding ways to get through life by yourself. For me, that’s moving and being physical.”
