After the overwhelming success of their highly addictive debut “Cairo”, Polish electropop trio Kamp! are back with a brand new single, to be released on February 15th via Discotexas. “Melt” features the same kind of melodic synth-pop influenced by 80’s new wave, but with a more dance-oriented electro beat this time around.
Portuguese one-woman act Da Chick is finally ready to share her explosive cocktail of classy, nasty, sassy funk. Her appropriately -titled new song, “Cocktail”, is taken off the young artist’s debut album Curly Mess, available now via Discotexas (also home to up and coming acts such as Moullinex, Kamp! or Zimmer)
Now, if you enjoy this addictive, instant disco classic, do yourself a favour and check out another of the album’s standout tracks: “I Say”. This one is a bouncy dance floor jam with fiery vocals and an irresistible bass line.

Zimmer’s music is a feel good, body-warming and enthusiastic wave that goes straight to the heart and stays until the end of the night. Raised between France and California and now based in Paris, this young producer combines the west coast carefree attitude with a twist of Parisian chic. Already supported by Severino, Jaymo, Justin Faust, The C90s, RAC, Bxentric, Manuel Kim, Tronik Youth, Anoraak and more, Zimmer released his debut EP Horizontal Disco in late 2011 on Discotexas.
After a few months of DJ sets and fancy parties, he is now sharing a brand new EP of remixes, to be released on April 6th, featuring productions by Mercury, Moullinex, Xinobi, Moon Boots, Broke One and Lou Teti.
With influences ranging from George Benson to Crystal Waters, he blends 70s Disco, 80s Funk and 90s House. When not producing, he also DJs in low-ceiling clubs and underground parties, making sure the crowd always has a good time…

Already supported by Rory Phillips, Gloves, Shinichi Osawa, Treasure Fingers, The Magician, Justin Faust, VillA or Gigamesh, the new 12″ from Portuguese disco act Mirror People has garnered rave reviews across the board. Released via Discotexas, “Feel The Need” features diva vocals by Rowetta and the download bundle includes remixes from the likes of Moullinex, Munk, Social Disco Club and Severino.
Rui Maia, the ‘hands’ behind the Mirror People, is a Porto-born producer who is equally inspired by the sounds of Joy Division, David Bowie, Air and Stereolab. After collaborating with X-Wife on their debut record, where Rui played synthesizers and electronics, he decided to develop his DJ & studio production skills.
In 2010, influenced by Italians Do It Better and DFA, Rui formed his latest project – Mirror People. More disco-house oriented than his previous efforts, Mirror People has released EPs on labels such as Permanent Vacation, Brilliantine or Raw Cutz Records.
