Veteran NYC producer/DJ Alex Gimeno, aka Ursula 1000, is getting ready to drop his new album “Galleria” later this month, but in the meantime, we’re treated to the record’s great second single “Stand Up Straight”. Featuring Sal P, aka Salvatore Principato of dance/funk/punk pioneers Liquid Liquid, the track is a hypnotic percussive house groover filled with low slung bass, anxious guitar, kalimba, and mad timbale. The single comes backed with three remixes by NYC edit masters Duane Harriott and Sean Marquand, aka Devin Dare, Scatalogics Record’s Ulysses, and disco mavericks In Flagranti.

Today, we’re excited to share with you In Flagranti’s excellent version of Ursula 1000’s “Stand Up Straight”. This remix finds our beloved duo of Sasha Crnobrnja and Alex Gloor in such fine form, injecting the original track with a healthy dose of disco funk vibes. You can now stream this groove-filled remix, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta

Set to drop on August 28th via Insect Queen Music, Ursula 1000’s seventh album “Galleria” takes you on another eclectic time warp where nu-disco, synthwave and boogie funk pulsate alongside to the sounds of jazzy hip hop, latin breaks and French Touch house in a multi-colored blend as only Ursula 1000 can deliver.

The “Stand Up Straight” Remix EP is out now. Buy it here.

Edinburgh-based producer Telfort is back with a new 12”, titled “Soon I Will Embark On A Journey”, which marks his third EP on his own TLFT label following “In A Good Place” and “Lickety Split”. The record features two original tracks, the evocative and soul-stirring “Soon I Will Embark On A Journey” and the hazy and hypnotic “Until Now”. It also features a great reinterpretation of “Until Now” from Julius Steinhoff, co-founder of Smallville Records and half of Smallpeople. Serene and smooth but equally stomping and floor-ready, the melancholic strings and trickling percussion slowly develop and captivate in a sublime and entirely fitting rework. Give it a spin above, and enjoy the ride.

Telfort’s “Soon I Will Embark On A Journey” EP drops on July 28th via Rubadub Distribution.

Tendts: “Who Are The Pleiadians” Video

Greek brotherly duo Tendts are making “music that you can dance to, or not!” The compositions of Christos and Fotis Papadakis are both emotive and movement inducing, even though they are written and structured with disparate elements that refuse to fall into obvious patterns. They consist of palpitating beats, imaginative textures, seductive melodies and sporadic bursts of treated vocals.

Following on from a slew of quality releases, the duo have now returned with their new EP “It’s Everywhere”, a concept six-tracker soundtracking Tendts’ intergalatic encounter with The Pleiadians (dimension traversing Nordic aliens to the unenlightened) at the far edge of the universe. One of our favorite cuts from the record, the EPs opener “Who Are The Pleiadians”, gets a trippy video that we’re delighted to premiere it on La.Ga.Sta. Check it out.

The “It’s Everywhere” EP, backed with a stellar remix from Palmbomen, is out now on Lower Parts. Buy it here.
