Krazy Fiesta delivers their annual remix, this time they got their hands on the Julia Spada single “Reptile Mission” and their blissful, housepiano laced take is perfect for lounging about in the sun during these lazy summer days.
Another heater from Spanish producers Pional and John Talabot.
Marianne approached the window, keeping well to one side and peered out between the bars. Beyond the little garden was a faence of high, uneven posts. Beyond the posts she could see the outlines of squat figures, standing round the garden like sentinels. She jumped back.
‘Mark! People, outside!’
‘Look again,’ Mark said.
Marianne peered out, more cautiously than ever. The people stood in strangely stiff, unyielding positions. She looked fixedly at one to see him shift his position, give some indication that he was alive. But he stayed absolutely still. So did the others.
‘Oh,’ she cried in relief. ‘They’re not live people. They’re only stones.’
‘Be quiet,’ Mark hissed at her. ‘I told you. I don’t know if THEY can hear as well as see.’
‘See? How can stones see?’
‘Look! Don’t talk, look.’
Marianne looked again. It was difficult to see much of any one of the stones because of the bars and the fence hindering her view. But as she concentrated on one of the humped squat figures with all her attention, she saw suddenly a movement. A dark oval patch, which she’d taken to be a hole, disappeared, as a pale eyelid dropped slowly for a moment and then was raised again. And in the dark oval, the ball of an eye swivelled slowly towards the house and remained there, staring with a fixed unwinking gaze straight, it appeared, at Marianne herself.
She shrank away from the window and turned to Mark.
‘One of them looked right at me!’ she said.
‘I can never tell whether THEY really see me, or just pretend to,’ Mark said, in a low voice.
‘It’s horrible!’ Marianne said. She shivered suddenly. ‘Mark, I’m frightened!’ Do they do that all the time? Don’t they ever shut their eyes? Go to sleep?’
‘I don’t know what happens at night,’ Mark said. ‘I can’t see them in the dark, but I have a horrible sort of feeling that they can see me.’
‘Do they ever move?’
‘Only their eyes. At least, I’ve never seen anything else move. And the same ones always seem to be in the same place every time I look out.’
‘I’m frightened,’ Marianne said again. ‘I don’t like it, Mark.’

You might remember Abu Ashley from before when we wrote about his track “Asmaa.” Now he shares his highly anticipated debut EP by the same name, which is out now on [par.ka] records. Really interesting tidbit about the EP – it was engineered by Tanner Ross (Soul Clap/Wolf + Lamb) who we’ve had the distinct pleasure of interviewing before here at Discobelle. Comprised of two originals along with two remixes, Abu’s Asmaa EP is experimental yet club-friendly, minimalistic yet meticulously intricate. Stream the full EP below.
Asmaa EP Tracklisting:
A1 – Asmaa (Original Mix)
B1 – Asmaa (Alexi Delano Remix)
B2 – Hussein Online (Vinyl Mix)
* Nado Heights (Original Mix) [Digital Exclusive]
Abu’s homegrown Middle Eastern flair for music and fashion helped him develop the signature habibi house sound he’s been championing. The past few months has seen Abu spin everywhere from the infamous Output in Brooklyn down to the Shore Club in Miami, where he’s shared the decks alongside dance music greats like Matthew Dear, Tiga, Pearson Sound, Dusky, and Kim Ann Foxman. He’ll be performing a Boiler Room set on Wednesday, July 30th and again at Le Bain on August 4th before jetting over to Europe later this summer where he’ll be opening up for Crystal Castles during Berlin Music Week.
Summer anthem – it’s been said before but I truly feel like it’s true in the case of this remix. New York’s Bobby Green is back this summer with his signature upbeat electro-pop sound. He’s linked up with London’s Tiger La to remix her single “Now You Know”. Put your hands up for this one.
Currently obsessing over a new remix from Monarch (Brent Kuztle from OneRepublic’s side project) of LA duo Golden Coast’s debut single “Break My Fall.” Monarch’s remix slows the tempo down and channels the movie Drive. Turn this one up during all your late night cruising sessions.
The upstart Manchester imprint, Love Dose Records is back with their second release and it’s first from an anonymous group of writers, producers and singers known as ‘Rabbithole.’
Soulful vocals, intricate melodies and pop sensibilities permeate three original cuts as Rabbithole takes us thru a wonderland of house grooves that channel a vintage, Chicago flavor. Available as a vinyl only release, due to hit shops 8/26/14, stay up with the lads by following them on your favorite social media:

For this album, I used different kinds of instruments, but I wanted to keep music very simple: little melodies and cassette tapes, some of them from 30 years ago that I found lying on the streets of my city, Buenos Aires. I hope you will enjoy this wander to the Emerald Pond.
Hilarious title for this pretty cool Diplo remix of the Lorde track “Tennis Court”.
