Justin Faust launches the first look into his debut album with the title track "Spellbound," which premiered today via Earmilk. Packing in "Space Rhumba," "Slowin On," and handfuls more, "Spellbound" leads the way with the disco magic that Justin Faust has become known for over the past few years. Back from a hiatus, Justin Faust is back stronger than ever with a brilliant selection of new sounds.

With remixes of Justin Timberlake's "Like I Love You" and Treasure Fingers & The Knocks' "My Body" garnering close to 100,000 plays, Justin Faust has remained at the forefront of his genre. Now the Munich producer returns to Discotexas to compile his many long-awaited originals into one electrifying body of work.

The Discotexas collective reaches out to a fine selection of remixers to tackle two different tracks by Discotexas co-owner Bruno Cardoso AKA Xinobi from his Puma release. Chosen to rework the material are Mirror People, Malente, Bufi and Moullinex.

Up first, Mirror People who released on labels like Permanent Vacation and Bear Funk as well as Discotexas. His remix of ‘Woods’ is a joyous and colourful one with dancing piano chords, skipping beats and plenty of happy disco dazzle. There’s sufficient jack in the beats to make it a floorfiller without losing any of the musical charm of the rest of the track.

Malente of No Brainer Records then gets dirty on his nice and rough sounding rework of ‘Puma’. He strips it back to a curious melody lead, squelchy percussion and driving bassline that will have dancefloors all marching in happy unison to the locked on drums.

Bufi has also released on this label before now as well as on Kitsune, and his take on ‘Woods’ is a dark, tense thing with a taught bassline, airy vocal stabs and plenty of depth. A stunning breakdown is laced with plenty of tension before the groove lands again and sweeps you off your feet.

Xinobi’s Discotexas partner, Moullinex is a highly acclaimed producer creating many different styles of music and has won fans across the board from NME to Mixmag. His re-work of ‘Puma’ is a stunning,

sunny thing that has plenty of wiry synths, funky basslines and organic percussive hooks at its core. Vocal yelps help bring a party starting human element and the whole thing feels warm, humid and inviting.

Each of the four remixers here very much bring their own flavours to the table and breathe plenty of new life into what was already fantastic source material by Xinobi.

Hot on the heels of the latest Moullinex and Jesse Oliver EP, Discotexas is ready to unleash its new EP, this time from Bufi, AKA Mateo González Bufi, a producer from Mexico leading a whole new wave of music makers from South America.

Bufi has previously released on labels like Kitsune, Electrique Music and Tigers on a Leash and this EP is inspired by old school producers like Adonis, Kevin Saunderson and Juan Atkins as well as contemporaries such as Daphni and Jimmy Edgar.

Up first is ‘Salvaje’, a jittery and playful track that bounces rich drums, squelchy percussion and thin pads off each other as diva vocal yelps jump out from behind. A Mexican voice speaks over the top of the tune and it eventually explodes into a nicely driven jam that is deep and delicious.

Next track ’I Call You’ is “an ironic remark about the terrible cell phone service we have in Mexico” says Bufi himself. This one is a classy bit of colourful disco house that builds in layers to a considered and uplifting peak with crisp chords, sheet metal percussion and vibes aplenty.

Finally, "Papers" is a more progressive jam that kicks off with dark bass and then drives the listener into a heady harmonic climax. It’s wild and unpredictable and is made from only the freshest components as it thumps its way into the dead of night.

Advance DJ support by: Aeroplane, Tensnake, Bag Raiders, Munk, Erik Rug, Moullinex, Zimmer, Xinobi, Mirror People, Justin Robertson, Alexander Robotnick, Russ Chimes, Severino, Emperor Machine, Joyce Muniz, Kulkid, Larry Tee, Downtown Party Network, Pete Herbert, DiskJokke, Xpress 2, Ricardo Baez, Popullete.

Helsinki based producer Jesse Oliver returns with a hot package that features two brand new tracks and comes on the same label that released his equally essential ‘Oceans’ single back in 2013, Discotexas.

Oliver has been producing for a couple of years now and is really making a name for himself having topped the Beatport charts and sound tracked knowing dancefloors with his lively house music. The Discotexas label, meanwhile, has build a sterling reputation for quality modern disco and alternative dancefloor grooves from the likes of Xinobi, Mirror People and Justin Faust.

The first track, ‘Piece By Piece’, takes its time to unfold into a simple but effective house track run through with plenty of synth drama and chord stabbed intensity. It features a large breakdown and is the sort of thing to drop at the peak moment of the night.

Next up, ‘Could Be Mine’ is a deeply rooted bit of house music with a plucky guitar riff imbuing it with a sense of funk, and a subtly worked vocal that is buried deep within circling synths and brightly coloured chords. It’s accessible house music that makes you want to dance and will no doubt unite dancefloors everywhere.

An instrumental is also included in this tidy package from the ever impressive Jesse Oliver and Discotexas.
