We are 10! Last Gas Station, aka LAGASTA, turns 10 this year, and celebrates its tunefully inspirational road trips through all these years in a very special way: a new compilation of exclusive covers! They invited some of their favourite artists and producers, who have been part of La.Ga.Sta.’s family all these years, to choose a best-loved song of theirs, and make a cover version of it for a new anniversary compilation. The outcome is an exceptional…track compilation that brings the most deserving music to the surface, from George Michael to Siouxsie and the Banshees and from Whitney Houston to Blood Orange. It’s a fusion of different decades and music styles. The 15-track compilation is now available as a free download, artwork by one of the most exciting graphic designers today, Portugal-born, NYC-based Bráulio Amado.

TRACKLIST:

01. Fainting By Numbers – A Different Corner

Fundido Edits

Get abso-funky-lutely ready to party! It’s time to hit the Fundido dancefloor! Fundido is a dance party, thrown and “invented” for the very first time back in 2015 by the two friends Latane Hughes and Billy Scher. Actually, Fundido is more than a dance party. It’s a celebration of disco and funk music from all around the world! It’s a musical journey! What began as a small gathering of friends in a tiny front bar room in Brooklyn grew into an exotic residency affair and led to Billy and Latane regularly gigging all over New York under the Fundido moniker.

We are so excited that our own Vangelis from LaGasta is joining them this Saturday at Baby’s All Right, the famous music venue in the historic neighborhood of Williamsburg Brooklyn New York! And we are more than thrilled that Latane and Billy are getting us into this party mood by sharing with us some of their favorite tunes that they’ve tweaked for dance floor fun!

First comes the 1989’s “Tamma Tamma Loge” by the veteran Indian singer Bappi Lahiri with its uplifting Bollywood disco feeling beautified with chunky bells and a captivating bass line. From India we ride straight to France, with the track “A Malibu” by the French actress, radio host and singer Caroline Loeb, a 1984 synth-pop gem, filled with the foxy “Fundido” funky vibes. Our last stop is in Spain, listening to Dolores Varga’s “La Hawaiana”, released back in 1972. The Fundido DJs’ edit weaves in the track’s rumba rhythm a disco tropical soul.

Grab a free download of the Fundido edits above, and embrace this sonic trip till we meet at Baby’s All Right, Brooklyn, NY, on Saturday 10th November. Fundido is on!
