Discobox Records presents the latest installment of its Our Disco compilation series, presenting fresh music from the label’s already established roster in addition to new faces joining the cast. This time Discobox showcases artists from the label’s home base of Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
Opening the set, DCW (AKA Gustavo Castro) presents the immediately danceable “Red Shoes”. With a background playing in bands and exploring different musical styles Gustavo has managed to develop a unique approach to dance music. His debut on Discobox is a beautiful track using filtered synths, sharp bass line, and a classic, soul-stirring vocal that you just might recognize.
Next up, Gustavo Peluzo keeps the vibes deep with his flowing track “Return”. Besides being a prolific producer, Gustavo is also longtime resident DJ of the legendary Deputamadre Club and has developed superb skills both in DJ’ing and producing music.
The third track brings a returning name from the series. Juliano Maia joined the first compilation with great feedbacks with the excellent electro-inspired “Shake”. Now he presents “The Volume”, a work lovingly influenced by classic house music, with his own added touch.
Cury is a brand new name to the label, and was one of the members of Funky Fat band, recently going solo. His contribution – titled “Dope” – follows the pumping but deep tech-house style he plays in his sets, featuring a rolling bass line, sexy vocal snippets, and emotive synths.
Rounding out the package, DJ Daniel D goes straight into the funky acid house field with “Find A Place”. This potent club cut includes Daniel’s characteristic extra fat bass line and old-school 808 shots joining modern synths and drums.
From disco to house, to nu-disco, tech-house and classic old-school retro sounds … this is what Discobox is all about. Let’s disco!
