“The song ‘One Thing’ is an exact translation of how I feel most of the time. When I’m supposed to stand still, I still feel like I’m running, chasing after something. Restlessly wandering around because I’m too focused on what is to come, instead of being content in the moment. It’s a reminder for me to enjoy the now, even though there’s so many goals I have set. It’s about the realization I’m never really able to reach my goals because they’re always changing. If you’re chasing your dreams you’ll never stop chasing. This song is a reminder to take a step back and enjoy the moments from time to time, because that’s all we really have.”

Treasure Fingers and Vanilla Ace are back with a fresh new EP and we’re stoked to have the premiere. The two-track Sweat EP features a wide range of sonic influences, with the title track “Sweat” delivering a healthy dose of driving 808 drum loops, topped off with a subtle and eclectic Western Asian horn melody. Track two, appropriately titled as “Crazy,” is the perfect soundtrack to your late night escapade, designed with the sole purpose of getting your feet moving and grooving. Out now via Treasure Fingers’ imprint Psycho Disco!, the Sweat EP also comes in conjunction with a series of U.S. tour dates which can be seen via the flyer below. The EP can be purchased here.

 

Audio Dope is a Swiss artist signed to Majestic Casual and Radicalis and he has been compared to acts such as Mura Masa and Caribou.

We here at Discobelle can premiere the first single “Floating” taken off his self-titled debut album, the track is crisp like a sun-filled winter’s day and features an acoustic foundation that shifts to spliced vocal fragments, weaving drums and beautifully layered synths for a breathtaking piece of electronica.

Folk rockers Mt. Joy have debuted their new song “Silver Lining,” an attempt by guitarist/vocalist Matt Quinn to find some solace after tragedy — in this case, the friends in his community lost too young to drugs, and the devastation they left behind. It’s a compellingly open-hearted piece of songwriting that exemplifies why Mt. Joy have found such a passionate following in little more than a year as a band.

See Mt. Joy live in LA on December 8th at the Lodge Room.

Husqvarna Motorcycles teams up with us here at Discobelle along with our friends in Swedish acts Aron McFaul and franskild for two exclusive mixes to coincide with the release of the brand new Husqvarna Motorcycles street ​​​bike ​​range​.

The new street bike range consists of the SVARTPILEN- and VITPILEN models that nod to the history of this classic Swedish company and brings it into today with ​​simple​​ yet​​ progressive​​ design,​​ distinctive​​ style​​ and​​ Swedish​​ understatement​.

The two mixes from Aron McFaul and franskild each correspond with the street bike models, Arons SVARTPILEN mix was made as a “…soundtrack for driving down European roads on the motorcycle at night…” and showcases his strutting balearic discoish sound while franskilds VITPILEN mix has playful yet controlled feel or you could say a simple yet progressive organic house sound.
