Uuuuhhhhh….. that’s one sound that wraps up the gorgeous, tropical vibes of SF’s golden new production duo, Brother In Arms. Comprised of industry staples, J Boogie and Deejay Theory, these two individuals form like a groovy incarnation of Voltron, posted up on the sunny coast of Barbados, sipping Mai Tai’s and lounging amongst the palm trees.
The mix they’ve blessed us with here is really something special. Showcasing their fine ability to soundtrack your end-of-summer parties, the track-listing is stacked with Brother In Arms material, both released and unreleased, not to mention reworks from Yam Who?, Motez and drops from our beloved Tittsworth.
It’s a groovy situation, ya’ll… everyone’s invited!
PS. Check out the smashing Discobelle mix that Piu Piu did a couple of months back.
LA indie pop duo Golden Coast’s sophomore release is the quintessential anthem for anyone who like beaches, summertime and having fun. If you’re a fun hater, this track is not for you. “Dream and an MPC” encapsulates the sentiment to break the societal mold & be yourself, aptly summed up in the chorus lyric: “we don’t need no education to be; all we need is a dream and an MPC.” Take a dip into this infectiously good pop single below.
This is probably my favorite Sebastian Carter remix yet. This quietly ferocious flip of Birdy’s “Skinny Love” should be filed in your sex jams playlist. The track’s creeping sensuality builds slowly throughout so you know, get lost in the **vibes**
Chicago producer Kyle Woods drops new track together with vocalist Khallee, “At Night” is spaced out, futuristic and vibefilled r&b that’s been on repeat here at the Discobelle office since we received it.
But extreme for whom?
For us, perishable sacks of fluid bouncing irregularly in trajectories full of confusion, waste and loss? Yes, the events contained within this album, in tracks such as ‘Stream Terminal’, ‘Machine Ecology’ or ‘Loading Vistas’ would undoubtedly be extreme.
Less so for neural networks evolved over aeons of subjective time, stretched across a Solar System-wide web, singularly conscious yet multiplying, shards of themselves implemented in impossibly sleek and highly specced hardware: ships, satellites, feats of astro-engineering, anthropomorphic, insectoid and gaseous probes navigating the empty geographies of Mars, Venus, Jupiter and its many moons, skating down the rings of Saturn in missions in the intersection between science and poetry.
And extreme in what way?
In the way in which technological systems evolved to achieve the deterministic inevitability of nature would feel extreme.
So, think of the artistic or architectural equivalent of ‘extreme weather events’. Cyclopean eyes blinking from massive impact craters, palaces of crystal rising from forlorn mesas, armies of anime-like arthropods covering tomorrow’s terminal beaches glyphs and emoji for ultra-complex feelings, vast instruments recording the post-human civilizational equivalent of a romantic mixtape after their first cosmic date.
You can acquire Extreme Events from Root Strata, and mong out to their videos here.
Be warned: if you don’t want to party, then you should go home… because, when these three heavy hitters link up to do a track, a party is sure to ensue. Featuring a few tempo changes and a blend of styles like twerk and Jersey Club, this free joint is sure to cause Godzilla-level skirmishes on demolished dance floors.

After Austin based dance act, Night Drive, surprised us with this fantastic reworking of Radiohead’s classic, ‘Where I End And You Begin,’ they’ve done it again with this unexpected video version. Created by the groups good friend, Robert MacCready of Production For Use, the video relies heavily on syncopated visuals and splashes of extreme color.
Download the tune below and keep your eyes peeled for their next official single, due out sometime in October.
Today we celebrate the release of Spray Paint’s Cussin’ 7” in Upset The Rhythm with a mixtape compiled by SP’s own Cory Plump. It is called FAVOURITE JAMS VS INFLUENCES and if you were to estimate the mean of its vibes, the result would come quite close to Spray Paint’s own propulsive psychedelic battlefield repeato-rock. As we usually do with these mixtapes, we will refrain from revealing the track-list and let you guess in the comment box.
Whoever gets the most correct will earn an infinitesimally small yet infinitely potent moment of their time in the eye of a desert whirlwind that proxies the skin-shredding abrasive thrust of SP’s Cussin’.
Produced by Geoff Barrow of Portishead, Beak. Anika covers Yoko Ono’s Yang Yang.
New York songstress Sirma get’s the remix treatment from Toronto producer, Pat Lok. This groove-laden, mid-tempo stepper is a perfect addition to anyones weekly playlist, so go ahead and add it to your’s!
“The track “Califuture” is about that optimistic bug in everyone who moves to California that makes them think that someday they will be plucked up out of obscurity to become famous. Everyone has it in the back of their mind. But the music video goes one step further into madness. It’s the heart-wrenching story of a snow cone salesman trying to get a job at dirtybird and then realizing the life of a snow cone maker is really his passion.”
