It’s time to beat the heat with Heat Beat! Just before bringing their legged punk-funk-dance XXXtravaganza to Europe, our beloved Melbourne heat beat collective NO ZU have put together this exclusive “Afterlife Eurotica” mix for La.Ga.Sta. to get us all in the right mood for the upcoming tour. Filled with choice selections, the 64-minute mixtape is a pure heater of a mix! NO ZU like to keep things shrouded in mystery, so there’s no tracklist.

Nicolaas Oogjes of the band says about the mix, “The ‘Afterlife Eurotica’ mix sums up our feelings about bringing the full-ZU-band XXXtravaganza to Europe for the first time! Sight seeing boogie, tourism funk, foreign mood rave, traveling groove hypnotics, and souvenir erotic feelings permeate throughout as they do in the collective ZU mind. Most tracks are completely fresh to me. Groove deepness that has floated around us in the Heat Beat ether from other DJ sets, from band-mates in dilapidated hostel rooms, from Melbourne community radio and from the depths of the ‘Afterlife’. Then there are a couple of ZU standards, pillars of the proto-XXX-boogie past like Parliament and Sydney’s own Severed Heads. See you this week Europe! Time 2 do the ZU with U.”

Grab the mix below, and make sure to check out the Alex Last-directed new 3D video for “Hi-Gloss, taken from their second LP “Afterlife”, out now on Chapter Music. Buy it here.

Greek psych-pop musician Panagiotis Melidis, aka Larry Gus, just dropped a new compilation called “At Your Desk” that serves as a companion piece to his excellent second LP “I Need New Eyes” for DFA. The seven-track collection features two original tracks, a cover of Bjork’s “I Miss You”, and four epic remixes from some of the album’s standout tracks by 40 Thieves, Musik Non Stop, Luke Vibert, and Daniel.T. & Cooper Saver.

Today, we’re psyched to share with with all of you not one, but two remixes from the compilation that spin the album’s “I Need New Eyes” neurotic fidgety originals into a spaced-out dancefloor bliss-state. San Francisco’s collective 40 Thieves, known for previous releases on labels such as Permanent Vacation, Leng, and Rong Records, take us for a ride with their finely-crafted “Wawoobi Dub” version of “The Sun Describes”. And if that’s not enough, Daniel.T. has teamed up once again with friend and fellow LA producer Cooper Saver to deliver a rework of “NP-Complete” of cosmic disco goodness.

You can stream both remixes exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

Larry Gus’ “At Your Desk” is out now on DFA. Buy it here.
