Discobelle Live

Discobelle Live Events:

Glen Brady (also known as DJ Wool) has spent the last couple of years in California as an audio engineer in the classical music world, he has recently toured as a member of D.A.R.K. with band members Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries) and Andy Rourke (The Smiths). He also mixed their debut album “Science Agrees” and last year he toured in support of The Cranberries as a member of D.A.R.K. He used to live in Berlin where he churned out hard-hitting tracks, before that he was in NYC duo The Glass and up to this date he’s amassed a massive resume with remixing and production credits for a vast array of artists including Spoek Mathambo, Todd Terry, Far East Movement, REM, Jagz Kooner, Howie B, Tittsworth and many more.

He has now relocated to Ireland where he recently performed an all hardware set on synths, samplers, drum machines and fx at the Body & Soul Festival. Fortunately, someone pressed the record button and we all are now able to hear this beauty of a set, listen and enjoy breaks, acid bleeps, housed up jams and banging left-field techno in a set done by a maestro. Also, be on the lookout for new releases from DJ Wool on My Techno Weighs a Ton and Soleid.

It’s Taco Tuesday out here in California, and this might just be the track we’re going to be jamming to all night long. While the tequila shots carry us into the night, Pusher and Push Push‘s energy is bound to be simultaneously electric and magnetic.

“Shake Down” is easily the song of the week for us, at least when it comes to getting us pumped for the weekend. Check out the track below and pre-order the EP here via iTunes.

This weekend I headed down to FYF and I gotta be honest, the slew of last minute cancellations left me with a funny feeling in my belly. Besides the whole Frank/Kanye diabolical, ultimate dad rock outfit Deerhunter wasn’t going to be there to perform one of my all time favorite albums, Halcyon Digest. Not to mention the tragic cancellation of Ben UFO and Joy Orbinson due to visa troubles. But despite all of that, I was presently surprised by the talent and minor changes the festival had put into action this year.

3The nightmare of last year was entering the arena, keeping the crowd barricaded outside until \finally opening the doors to a mob of angry festival goers. This year a separate entrance for the floor was put in place, and festival goers waited in a constantly moving line to enter. No panic attacks for this girl. The layout was no different than last year, and the trek from The Lawn (the second largest stage) to the Main Stage was long enough to make most attendees exhausted. Yet despite my aching feet, the diverse group of artists and positive energy of the crowd kept my spirits high. I saw so many wonderful and talented people, but somehow I narrowed my favorites down to five. Check out my quick recap of each after the jump, and get ready for a wild ride.
