DISCO_MIX_ART

Toronto based tag team RYME (Rynecologist & Meech) have been friends for years but recently started producing together and almost immediately released their successful debut EP “Bak Den” on Boys Noize Records.

The powerful duo put together a booming mix for the Discobelle mix series, with it they bring their talent and some of their street swag and compresses that into 90 minutes of dirty, jacked up techno that will melt those tiny computer speakers of yours.

As an added bonus, be sure to check out their spectacular Nina Simone bootleg.

This week we’ve got Berlin’s very own Chambray on mix duty, and to say I’m excited is a bit of an understatement. I first heard Chambray’s “Yuu EP” earlier this year and was immediately hooked with the heavy pounding techno bassline, it made perfect sense for him to be the first exclusively signed artist on Jimmy Edgar’s imprint Ultramajic. His “Rub EP” features monster tracks such as “Ghetto Giants” and “Ease” which have been championed by the likes of Aden and Richie Hawtin. One of the most exciting up-and-coming producers out there today, you’re in for a real musical treat.

“This mix reflects exactly the kind of music that I love as well as showcases inspirational tracks that have helped me develop my own sound. This selection of music includes my current originals, remixes, and some of my all time favorites that I could listen to on repeat for hours. I strive to balance groovy rhythms with stomping percussion throughout the entirety of this set. Having a good mix of both of these elements is very important to me as a musician as well as for my own personal taste. Enjoy!”

deadboy-

Our friends over at fabulous blog Truants recently posted this mix from London producer Deadboy, get ready for the weekend by listening to him effortlessly smash through his own productions aswell as tracks from Ikonika, Young Thug, Chief Keef, Wiley, Shackleton etc etc.

“I wanted sum up the stuff I’m feeling right now and the sort of thing I’m playing out. Usually if I’m doing a longer set I’ll start out at a slower BPM and play a bunch of dancehall and RnB and stuff but I decided I’d go straight in at 130ish. Obviously I had the home listener in mind a bit more than I would in the club so some stuff such as the Yung 4eva track got in there.”

Hailing from Belfast but now residing in London, the powerhouse known as Bicep gives us their BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, which sees the duo go all in with house, techno, disco, breaks etc. tunes for your listening pleasure.

“IT WAS AN HONOUR TO BE ASKED TO CONTRIBUTE TO A MIX SERIES WHICH WE HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO THROUGHOUT OUR TEENS GROWING UP IN BELFAST. IN THIS MIX WE TRIED TO COVER QUITE A LOT OF GROUND, ACROSS A FAIRLY WIDE SPECTRUM OF OUR TASTE, WHILST STILL KEEPING IT CLUB FOCUSED”

Astronomar

We met Marlon Lumba AKA Astronomar at WMC in Miami three years ago and already back then he blew us away with his productions, after relocating from Alaska to L.A he’s released tracks on Mad Decent, Fools Gold, OWSLA, Dim Mak, BNR, Enchufada, Ministry of Sound and Main Course (the label he founded together with Neoteric and Bot) becoming one of the major players within the US dance music scene.

This exclusive mix for us here at Discobelle sees him going into full on jacking techno mode and letting tracks play out and move around like they were designed to.

Tracklist after the jump.

In order to ease you in to the beginnings and ordeals of a new week, here’s the exquisite mix that Spanish producer Pional recently did for XLR8R.

!…his mix is largely a collection of melody-driven, slow-burning house, but several tracks include catchy synth riffs and vocal passages. It’s tempting to call it “indie,” but it’s more that Pional is simply an artist who’s balancing his passion for the dancefloor with his love of a good pop song. It’s a tricky balancing act to pull off, but at least for now, he’s walking the line very effectively.”

Kornel Kovacs (photo credit Pierre Bjîrk)

Kornél Kovacs was born in Stockholm and grew up listening to his Hungarian parents’ Kraftwerk tapes while taking drum, piano and singing classes, fell in love with jungle at the early age of 10 and started djing professionally three years later. Back in 2006 Kornél started throwing parties in his hometown, playing at clubs and festivals all around Sweden as well as in Tokyo, Mexico City, New York, London, Barcelona, Berlin and wherenot. He then began hosting the highly influential P3 Dans show on Swedish national radio, partook in the 2008 Red Bull Music Academy and played a smashing peak time set for a packed Sónar By Day stage in 2009 and continued his quest for world dominance with starting the record label/dj trio/love thang Studio Barnhus together with Axel Boman and Petter Nordkvist.

Last year year he started the Puss label together HNNY and now we get his new vinyl only single “1985 Edits” which is basically three stupid fresh edits of tracks from the year he was born, to celebrate the release we here at Discobelle got an exclusive mix recorded live in the basement of the Marie Laveau club in Stockholm that takes on a booming ride through the Kornel soundscape of dirty techno, smooth house and raved up sounds.

BONUS: As an exclusive download, Kornél graciously gave us the cozy, heartfelt and pianobased B-side track “Björn”. Enjoy!
