The best kept secret in L.A is Thee Mike B who recently introduced his alter ego Brillstein and with that treats us to his full blown pumping house banger of a track “Ode 2 Da Nude” (taken from his forthcoming six-track mini-album “Back To Bed” which will be released on Play It Down May 6th).
Lee Bannon is serious about this jungle revival: fresh off announcing a short run of spring dates with DJ Rashad (and one with Sophie!) LB drops an alternately haunting and exhilarating new track called “BLOOD/LINE“. Listen/rave at your desk below, and check those dates after the jump…

“I Was Gonna Cancel” (written and produced by Pharrell) is the 2nd single to be taken from Kylie’s brand new album “Kiss Me Once” and the single will be released on May 12th.
Australian duo The Presets flips the original into dance pop heaven aided by spaced out synth sounds and a steady beat.
“We have always had the utmost respect for Kylie as a pop star and an Australian Icon. After we DJed for her recently in Sydney she asked us to remix “I Was Gonna a Cancel”. Saying yes was a no brainer.”
Ejecta‘s twinkling, heartbreaking “Eleanor Lye“, taken from one of the best debuts of last year, gets a rather intense and beautiful video, in which we witness the stark, emotional (re)birth of our fearless heroine. Directed by the always wonderful Allie Avital Tsypin of creative collective BANGS:
(oh probably NSFW, but don’t let that stop you)
Ambassadeurs (aka Mark Dobson) is a British producer that focuses on bass heavy productions and turning sounds into samples.
He begins 2014 with the free download “Rain” which is a precursor to the release of his debut album later this year. And we here at Discobelle can premiere the video for the exquisite track “Ardour”.
The endearingly mysterious (or maybe just super shy) dd elle sent over his/her latest track, and like the warm + lovely “Kind 2 U“, this one is a sweet, slightly warped little pop gem that continues to grow on us after countless listens. The kind of ghostly “Love Me Only” is taken from dd elle‘s forthcoming u EP, out soon.
Ronika is a British artist hailing from Nottingham, she has drawn comparisons with early Madonna & Tom Tom Club (and she’s already received praise from Red Bull Music Academy to Nile Rodgers). Her debut album “Selectadiscs” is due to be released June 2.
Swedish duo Drop Out Orchestra shines with their remix of her track “Shell Shocked” that’s pleasant, shimmering disco at its finest. Looking at a busy 2014, check out their upcoming collaboration with Nancy Whang and also an upcoming original vocal track signed to Peppermint Jam.
Having previously released music on labels like Steadfast, Unfoundsound, Monique Musique, Distric Raw, Undercut, Stolen Moments, Manual Music, Kompass Musik, Suara, Greel Pound, Sk Supreme and more, Italian producer Roberto Clementi is about to have his ‘Marble’ EP put out on regular Scottish home Soma Records, after the imprint released Harvey McKay’s ridiculously great ‘Foreshadow‘ EP earlier this month. Being an establishment synonymously releasing the finest in raw, underground techno, track number two off Clementi’s forthcoming ‘Marble’ is just that – an unrelenting, stripped back, almost Marcel Dettmann-esque piece of pulsing techno minimalism, and we’re stoked to have the first listen here at Stoney Roads. The EP will be out on Monday before he releases his debut record in May, but before that you can stream the analog-influenced sound of ‘BYP’ below. This is a serious piece of electronic music, not produced for the faint-hearted and will most likely be heard between the hours of 7-10am at German’s infamously raw Berghain. Huge sounds.
