Sebastian Kornelius Coucheron-Gautier Teigen, AKA Coucheron is a Norwegian producer, songwriter and artist currently residing in Los Angeles. In the past, he’s worked with artists such as Kehlani, Unge Ferrari, Matoma, Mayer Hawthorne, Josie Dunne and Nick Jonas et. He’s also worked on official remixes for big names such as O.T. Genasis, Bearson & Lemaitre and Emily Warren etc.

Today marks the release of his new single “Ecstacy” (via Norwegian label Toothfairy Music) which is a bubbling, raw energy vibes filled banger of a track that brings to mind the works of French electronic stalwarts Justice and Daft Punk.

Odd Okoddo is a Kenyan/German duo consisting of Olith Ratego and Sven Kacirek who met almost a decade ago in Kenya when Sven Kacirek was recording his “Kenya Sessions” album (an effort that put Kacirek on the map of outernational producers). Olith Ratego made an appearance on the track “Too Good To Be True” and the pair connected.

Fast forward to 2018 and the start of their project Odd Okoddo, we now get to enjoy the fruits of their labor in the form of their new album “Auma” which will be released tomorrow October 18th via German label Pingipung. From the album, we get the stunning and hypnotic track “Adhiambo” which we here at Discobelle are super glad that we’re able to premiere!

On the album, Ratego writes the lyrics (touching upon universal subjects such as love, family and politics) and vocal melodies while multi-instrumentalist Kacirek composes, records and produces the arrangements working with a bass marimba and a veritable arsenal of Kenyan percussion instruments, household items, and found objects. Between the two, they create a rich, colourful, and dynamic sound which is defined by both Ratego’s huge vocal compass and range of timbres (singing in a musical style called “dodo” which originates from the shores of Lake Victoria, high in pitch and soulful expressions) as well as Kacirek’s skills as a sensitive percussionist.

“Adhiambo was the first song I worked on. My initial idea was to produce the ODD OKODDO record by using rhythms and beats only. No melodies, no harmonies. But after working on Adhiambo I was not convinced about this idea anymore. The second track I worked on was “Aora”. The last track I worked on was “Ngoma”. Obviously the more time I spent on this record the more melodic structures I used. Anyway, the initial plan was to create a record based on vocals and beats only. Adhiambo pays tribute to this early approach.” – Sven Kacirek

We got a treat for you today in the form of the premiere of new single from Belarussian producer Offbeats Hustling, “Oolya/Flute Tribe” will be released via Los Angeles label Pinkturban tomorrow October 18th and we here at Discobelle got the A-side track for you to enjoy.

Offbeats Hustling (Dzmitry Kulikouski) released his debut EP “Rio Ritta” (also via Pinkturban) about a year ago and it propelled him into the world with the EP receiving widespread DJ/radio acclaim following its premiere on BBC Radio 1 by Toddla T.

His new EP features two world-influenced, high energy dancefloor monsters with A-side track “Oolya” leading the way with a super infectious rhythm and layers upon layers of ethnic-sounding synths, looped Indian vocals that lie on top of a relentless bassline.

Austrian-born but raised in Atlanta, electronica artist Popeska returns with his lush sounding new single “Got It All”, which is the second track off his highly-anticipated upcoming album “RAMBLINGS” (a collection of songs consisting of his passion projects, sonic experimentations, and heartfelt music he produced privately since 2016, the album will be released via his new imprint Pen&Paper).

“Got It All” was premiered on This Song Is Sick and follows the late summer release of single “I’ll Be Here” which was his first release after a three-year hiatus that included getting married and bringing a child into the world.

Lyon producer Alex Autajon has been featured here on Discobelle in the past so when he dropped new single “Baeblade/easyGym”, we knew that it was gonna be good. The single was released via Moveltraxx last week and the two juke/footwork influenced tracks are excellent examples of the kind of left-field club music that we’d come to expect from the young producer.

Quickly garnering attention from music critics and fans alike, NASAYA teams up with Tim Atlas, former contestant on The Voice, to unveil their collaborative single “PLASTIC STRAW.” This funky cut is a metaphor for toxic relationships that refuse to biodegrade, just like a plastic straw.

An exquisite showcase of artistic collaboration and interconnectivity, “PLASTIC STRAW” is a milestone release for NASAYA.

UK soulful hip hop outfit Jungle Brown recently released their collab single “We On” (taken from their new album “Full Circle”, released via legendary label Mr Bongo) with the always-on point Sampa The Great.

Their debut album “Flight 314” boasts more than a million streams to date and it spent much of 2016 in Apple Music’s “Best of 2016” category, the album was also featured on various Spotify playlists and visuals on SB.TV.
