Last month, Oxford’s four-piece Glass Animals dropped their debut album “Zaba”, a fine collection of smooth, sultry electronic pop tunes, and quickly follow it up with a strong remix EP for one of the record’s standout tracks, “Pools”. Here, we have a delightfully seven-minute remix of “Pools” from our beloved German producer/singer Marius Lauber, aka Roosevelt. On his summer-soaked remix, Roosevelt injects the original song with a healthy dose of extra warmth and sunshine and all-around disco-tinged vibes.

The five-track “Pools” EP is out now digitally on Paul Epworth’s label Wolf Tone. The release also features two remixes of “Pools” by Jackson & His Computer Band and Kwes, as well as Glass Animal’s version on Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown”. Get it here.

Say hello to Closer, the newly-formed London-based duo of Ruben and Francisco, who first met in Paris some time ago, and their friendship formed over a mutual love for Grace Jones, Stone Roses, Talk Talk and J Dilla. A few weeks back, Closer caught our ears with their debut single, “Song For The Lovers”, produced by Hervé, a beautifully blissed-out balearic tune that feels like a sunset drive along the coast. The single’s b-side cut, an equally breezy, well-crafted track called “Spirit”, is now yours for free, so make sure to grab your copy below. Let’s get closer.

We’ve been following NSFW closely for a good while now, and it’s safe to say that this talented young Dutchman, real name Alexander van Cappellen, has rarely failed to impress us with his top-notch releases. Over the past few months, NSFW has kept himself rather busy, dropping a superb EP called “The Walker” for Nervous Records and a number of quality remixes for Kraak & Smaak, Nameless, and Boys Get Hurt.

Now, he’s back in action with a brand-new track called “Drop The Top”, another dose of his disco-infused, sun-kissed house, and, as predicted, it’s totally irresistible. Filled with infectious grooves and some serious old-school vibes, “Drop The Top” has summer written all over it. Today, we’re delighted to premiere it here on La.Ga.Sta., so do yourself a favor and grab a free copy of NSFW’s “Drop The Top” for your next car rides. The heat is on.

A little over a year ago, John Talabot’s label Hivern Discs dropped “It’s All Over”, the first installment of the imprint’s white-label “Blanc” series, which was shrouded in mystery. As it turned out, this uncredited track was made by Madrid-based producer Pional, while Belgian producer Locked Groove’s rendition of the track was featured on John Talabot’s DJ Kicks mix. Now, Hivern Discs is reissuing the stellar tune “It’s All Over in another 12” with remixes from Locked Groove and John Talabot. The digital edition will also include an alternate version by Pional himself, and a second remix by label boss John Talabot. You can grab a free download of Talabot’s “Stormbreak Refix” of “It’s All Over” for free below.

The Pool: “Jamaica Running (Poolside Edit)”

We just can’t get enough of LA’s Poolside “daytime disco” edits, specially made for their recent summer-soaked “Stir It Up” mixtape that has been on repeat on our car stereo for the last few weeks. Now, we’ve got our hands on this tropical, percussion-heavy rework of “The Pool’s “Jamaica Running”, which you can download for absolutely free below.

In Poolside’s own words: “The Pool was a unique entity in the early-to-mid ’80s out of Austin, Texas. The synthesizer project by drummer Patrick Keel released two albums and a series of EPs despite the gradual decline of the ‘synth-pop’ genre. “Jamaica Running” is the B-side to his “Dance It Down” single and the song appears to be a bit of an unusual track for The Pool, more laid back and groove focused than the rest of his work, which is more upbeat and energetic. With our edit we added a bunch of percussion and space echo dubs to give it a more tropical flair for our “Stir It Up” mixtape”.
