After sharing news of their forthcoming sophomore album “Natural Selection” last month, Art Department, the Canadian duo of Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow, have dropped the record’s first single “Cruel Intentions”, a moody, late-night affair which features vocals from Seth Troxler. The new record, which follows the pair’s acclaimed 2011 debut album “The Drawing Board”, is said to explore a “deeper and more mature and experimental sound that unravels through the duo’s trademark murderous basslines, raw textures, expert production and distinctively melancholy vocals.” “Natural Selection” will drop on November 18th via Johny White’s No.19 Music label.

The “Cruel Intentions” single, backed with remixes by Soul People label boss Fred P and Ibadan Records’ own Jerome Sydenham, will come out on October 27th.

Todd Terje: “Delorean Dynamite” Video

Norwegian disco king Todd Terje takes us for a crazy ride with his new video for his great tune “Delorean Dynamite”, taken from his excellent debut album “It’s Album Time”. The video is also an ad for Frank’s 1981 Delorean DMC-12. Frank was kind enough to let Terje use the Delorean for his live visuals. Eventually, Frank decided it was time to sell his prized automobile, so in return for his generosity, Terje offered his music and Terje’s collaborator, Espen Friberg (the director who made the “Leisure Suit Preben” video) offered to make him a video to help him sell it. Vrooom!

Berlin-based electronic pop songwriter Dan Bodan is one week away from the release of his debut LP “Soft” for DFA, which is said to be a “rose-scented journey through millennial love issues, Soundcloud collage, and post-empire paranoia.” We’ve already heard the singles “Soft As Rain” and “Jaws Of Life”, and now we’ve got another track from that forthcoming album, the insanely beautiful “A Soft Opening”, which was produced by LA/NY experimental pop duo 18+ and Latisha Faulkner.

Dan Bodan’s new album “Soft”, co-produced with Physical Therapy and Renaissance Man’s Ville Haimala, will drop on October 28th via DFA Records. Also, DFA has teamed up with Canadian cassette label 1080p for a limited-edition cassette version of “Soft”, which is now available to pre-order here.

Swedes do it better. Stockholm-based musician Per Magnanimous, formerly of The Sonnets, returns under his Sportsman guise with this fragile cover of Taylor Swift’s “Begin Again”, which was produced by fellow Swedish producer and frequent collaborator HNNY. Give it a spin above, and drive slow.

In Sportsman’s own words: “I was in my car driving with HNNY. It was winter. We were on an island on the east coast of Sweden. We were listening to this song. I love Taylor and this is my favourite. It’s always being played like a film in front of me. I love that it takes place in a café and the story… Being kind of fucked over and saved by someone new. Johan [Cederberg, HNNY] said it sounds like a Sportsman song. He thought I should make a cover. What’s past is past.”

There’s no better way to kick off the week than with a nostalgic, synth-pop ride all the way back in the late ’80s. This week in 1987, British glam-pop duo Scarlet Fantastic entered the UK charts with their single “No Memory” that quickly became an anthem for Andrew Weatherall at Boy’s Own legendary acid house parties. Now, twenty-seven years later, Jerry Bouthier’s label Continental Records is revisiting that long-forgotten ’80s hit by releasing not one, but two strong remix packages that bring back so many good memories.

Today, we’re delighted to premiere the first remix package of Scarlet Fantastic’s “No Memory”, which features fresh interpretations from the likes of Australian disco producer Luke Million (of The Swiss fame), hot new London duo Monday Club, and Freegard & Freegard. Once again, our beloved Luke Million delivers a superb version of “No Memory” in his signature style, replete with some deliciously retro synths, while Monday Club take the cult classic into late-night house territory with their finely crafted remix. The EP also includes an acoustic rain version of “No Memory” by Mighty K, the project of Maggie K de Monde with Mark Leaf. Stream the whole thing above and grab a free download of Luke Million remix below, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta. Enjoy the ride.

Download Luke Million’s remix of “No Memory” here.

The “No Memory ’14″ Remixes EP is out now digitally on Continental Records. Buy it here.

It’s time for “Rerotica”. What our Friday nights would be like without some darkly sensual, slow-burning disco grooves and familiar lyrics that bring back so many good memories. Rising Israeli producer Moscoman, who is currently based in Berlin, surely knows the deal. He rides a “Dark Horse” and shows us how he does it right with “Rerotica”, a late-night dancefloor heater featuring vocals from the man himself. The track appears on his new “Dark Horse” EP of four quality tunes on Cosmo Vitelli’s label Cliché, which follows his self-titled debut EP, released last year on the same label. Give “Rerotica” a few spins above, and preview the whole thing here.

The “Dark Horse” EP is out now on vinyl via I’m a Cliché, while the digital version will come out on October 27th. Pick up your 12” here. As a bonus, you can grab a free download of Moscoman’s unreleased edit, his contribution to the label’s excellent “Edit Service” series.
