Mizt3r "Dancing To The Moonlight"
Brazil’s Discobox Records unleashes the “Dancing To The Moonlight” EP by Mizt3r, a dancefloor-worthy groove monster anchored by a funky bassline with vocal cuts and a catchy synth loop.
“Pressure Cooker” is a deep and driving rhythmic track punctuated by sharp drums and percussion. The DJ Daniel D remix breathes new life into the original with atmospheric pads, jazzy piano riffs, and synth solos. The melting pot of Brazil has left an indelible mark on both Mizt3r and DJ Daniel D’s production styles. No other country merges patchwork genre styles from diasporas of Africa and Europe, and it’s rare that musicians traverse influences with such ease within one release.
Mizt3r began DJing in 1992 and is now considered one of the most important names in the Brazilian house music scene. He had a residency at Spain’s Espaço Factory in Santo André beginning in 1995, and has since played Mermaid, Pacha, Garage, MOB Festival, Sónar and Free Jazz Festival events, among others. Remixer Daniel D hails from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and references disco, nu-disco, Italo-disco, acid house and jazz in his productions and remixes. Give it a listen, and let’s disco!
Back in 2006, Discobox started as a house music party in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. With DJ Daniel D as resident and the designer / house music local legend Vinilcius as promoter, the party was aimed in playing high quality house music to a small crowd interested in hear new sounds.
Discobox had a unique vibe and during its almost 100 editions received the more expressive names of brazillian and international house music scene, like Asad Rizvi, Camilo Rocha, Funky Transport, Luiz Pareto, Marcos Morcef, Renato Cohen and Renato Ratier, just to mention a few.
Now we are moving a step forward, foccusing even more in the music: Discobox Records is born. An independent record label bringing the party's musical concept with exclusive productions, keeping a foot in the past and other in the future.
We want to release music inspired by the sounds of 70s disco and classic house music as well the modern and synthethic flavour of nu-disco and tech-house sounds.
