Following up his 2015 immense debut EP “Waiting” for Lobster Theremin’s sub-label Distant Hawaii and his killer “Well Well” 12″, released last year on Rhythm Section, Detroit-via-Manchester producer Hidden Spheres makes a welcome return with his new EP “By & Bye”. Consisting of four new tracks, the talented producer’s second offering for Distant Hawaii is picking up where the vibe of its first “Waiting” EP left off, and is loaded with the kind of jazz-infused house that we’ve come to expect from him. Once again, Hidden Spheres delivers a perfectly crafted four-tracker of soothing, sunset beach house vibe. Take a slow ride with the summery tune “Beachy”, one of our favorite cuts from the record.

Hidden Spheres’ “By & Bye” EP arrives on February 10th via Distant Hawaii.

Portuguese producer Luis Clara Gomes, aka Moullinex, is back with his brand-new single “Open House”, the first in a series of tracks being released before his third album hits stores later this year. Featuring singer/performer Tee Flowers, whose identity has been shrouded in mystery, “Open House” is an infectious groover full of piano chords and funky synth stabs.

French producer and Partyfine label boss Yuksek has just revealed a unique video for his new single “Live Alone”, which features Roman Rappak, lead singer of Breton. Produced by the European Space Agency, the video features previously unseen footage from astronaut Thomas Pesquet’s current Proxima mission on the International Space Station.

Astronaut Thomas Pesquet said of the video, “Music makes the world go round, and listening to music as we circle Earth helps me feel connected to home and keeps me motivated. The idea for this video came from talking with Yuksek in Paris before my launch and I am glad we both found the time to make it happen. I don’t think there have been any other music videos made in space and this one is great, thanks to his talent!”

The single “Live Alone” is taken from Yuksek’s forthcoming album “Nous Horizon”, the follow-up to his 2011’s second album “Living On The Edge Of Time”, which will drop on February 24th via his own label Partyfine. Pre-order it here.

We’re big fans of Solé Bicycles’ great “Fixtape” series, so we’re pretty excited to be part of this monthly series with a La.Ga.Sta. mixtape to bring you a taste of the Grecian coastline.

For the fifty-fifth installment of the Fixtapes, we drove one Sunday evening after sunset, through empty streets outside Athens, by the sea. Keeping in mind Solé Bicycles hometown of Venice CA, while driving in Athens, we tried to make the soundtrack for an imaginary roadtrip from Athens to Venice. A collection with some “classic” tracks that we had played or danced through the years in different places of our city, others that bring to mind sunny afternoons in Venice, and some new ones that we have played on our car stereo recently.

Head over to Solé Bicycles for exclusive download and tracklisting. Enjoy the ride.

JACQUES RENAULT

NYC producer/DJ Jacques Renault, co-founder of On The Prowl Records and Let’s Play House party/imprint with friend and partner Nik Mercer, needs no introduction. We’re more than excited for having him as a guest at our next LAGASTA event. Our beloved producer and DJ had yet another fantastic year with two remix EPs on Let’s Play House, an album full of edits on Local Talk and numerous quality remixes, including reworks for Midnight Magic and Yuksek, among others. He will spin at Superstore’s basement just one day before his set at Panorama. Ahead of his DJ set at Dalston Superstore, Jacques Renault did a Q&A with Vangelis from La.Ga.Sta. about life, radio and noise.


DANIEL.T.

Los Angeles-based producer/DJ Daniel Terndrup, also known as one half of Cosmic Kids, is someone we’ve been following since the beginning. All the way back in 2011, when Cosmic Kids dropped their debut “Reginald’s Groove” 12” on Throne Of Blood, an instant classic. Over the past two years, the talented producer and avid vinyl collector has been flying solo as Daniel.T., delivering top-notch remixes and original tracks, groove-filled disco edits and mixtapes for sunlit road trips. For the first time in four years, Daniel.T. returns to Superstore to celebrate with us the release of his superb new EP “Fahrenheit/Celsius” on Cosmic Pint Glass. Get into the groove!

The next release on Lobster Theremin’s Distant Hawaii offshoot comes from French producer/DJ Sweely with a humungous, stomping, NY-Jersey inspired EP called “All The Reasons”.
