The “Theatrical Techno Illustrated” album from Tokyo Offshore Project (the brainchild of Japanese musician Kiyoshi Miyaura alongside UK house pioneers Frankie Valentine and Simon Lovejoy, between the two of them Simon and Frankie have produced with huge names such as Björk, Carl Cox, Orbital and DJ Harvey) and it’s a collection of 11 rare and unreleased tracks from the UK house pioneers which were recorded between 1990-1995.

To celebrate the release which dropped on March 9th via Mental Groove Records, Simon Lovejoy has put together an exclusive and amazing mix for us in Discobelle consisting purely of rare 90s electronica.

mrtn

We consider Swedish producer/dj MRTN to be part of the Discobelle fam, he has spent a big chunk of the past decade dj’ing at clubs/festivals/showcases across most of the Northern hemisphere and also running the succesful blog turned label Stockholm Beat Connection. In 2011 he started producing together with POMP (Robyn’s drummer) under the moniker MRTN and they’ve racked up a string of strong releases, most notably their 2011 track “Slow” and the 2014 release “Illusion.

We’re proud to present you with this excellent housed up mixtape from MRTN, which should enable you all to get in that weekend spirit albeit a day early.

cesare

Brazilian producer Cesare has had a slow and steady rise over the last few years. In that time, he’s accumulated a bunch of acclaimed productions, including official remixes for Citizens!, Chela and more. Always bringing a fresh take on disco-funk, Cesare is back with a delightful springlike EP. Take a listen to this exclusive mix below to catch some summer vibes and get a taste of what the EP is all about.

Unkwon

Copenhagen producer/dj Unkwon AKA Anders Dixen is already well established as a highly regarded producer (with several top notch remixes under his belt along with his own spectacular original tracks) and dj with his unique formula of bassdriven, slo-mo, synthfilled and futuristic sounding r’n’b/house.

His exclusive mix for us here at Discobelle further embodies that sound when it starts off dark and moody, almost angst ridden sound of beats, invigorating synths and basically straight up vibes before finishing off with a somewhat more disco sounding mode.

“I got to travel a lot in North Africa in the last years thru touring with Blitz the ambassador and the studio session with oddisee for sawtuha in Tunisia. While being there i did some digging and found some incredible music from the 60s and 70s. Some of the music in this mix has zero info on the net, was never sold on ebay and has not been “rediscovered” yet. Others are somewhat classics in the field of „arabic groove“. The music in this mix comes from Morocco, Libya, Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon and Syria.”

“80’s Lebanese music is still considered by many in the Arab world as part of The Golden Age of Lebanese Music! Indeed, in the 80’s many Lebanese artists duplicated the essence of their musical heritage from earlier decades but this time they imbued it with western inspiration and included western instruments like the electric guitar and electronic drums. It was an exciting time as the past fused with the present to showcase the future!

To me it still sounds so timeless and futuristic whilst at the same time sounding authentic, classical and (welcoming) dated too!

This mix that I did contains many styles from classical styles through to western fusion. In a lot of the tracks you’ll hear early incantations of popular American R&B, lush orchestral ballads, torch songs, bellydance songs and tracks with shades of Reggaeton and even TechnoBrega of all things!”

It’s been a bit quiet from Vilnius based producer/dj Boyfriend during the last year but during the weekend he sent over this excellent new mix of darker, more raw sounding house tunes which is perfect for a rainy monday.
