Fresh off the release of their third album “Woman”, French electronic duo Justice – Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Augé – have shared the Susan Sarandon-starring video for their new single “Fire”, one of the record’s standout tracks.

Director of the video, Pascal Teixera, says: “On a hot summer afternoon, Gaspard and I are in Xavier’s kitchen, collectively daydreaming about washing a car. The year we like for car design, the make, where that could take place, how much soap, the mood, the sun, and there should be a woman to go cruising with, an iconic mix of cool, allure and strength – Susan Sarandon of course! And then a couple months later we’re in the desert, with the car and a lot of soap, and by some weird miracle there she is, even more amazing than we had fantasised her to be, ready to go for a drive.”

Justice’s album “Woman” is out now on Ed Banger Records. Get it here.

LA.GA.STA. presents: LAUER at Dalston Superstore

We are thrilled to welcome the mighty German producer and Tuff City Kids member Lauer for our next La.Ga.Sta. party at our favorite hangout Dalston Superstore. Joining him on December 2 is a lineup of friends and amazing humans: Princess Julia, Dance Armstrong & Chaka Khan’t (Disco Spritz), Wes Baggaley and your hosts for the night A Man To Pet and Lucy Fizz. It’s gonna be a great event, a ride not to be missed.

Frankfurt-based DJ/producer/musician Phillip Lauer is someone we’ve been following for a long, long time. He performs as Lauer and also as one part in the duos Arto Mwambe and Tuff City Kids alongside with Running Back’s head honcho Gerd Janson. Raised on a strict diet of hip hop & punk rock, Philipp finally succumbed to the pleasures of electronic music in the late nineties when he started to produce deep house tracks. His excellent debut solo album “Phillips” was released back in 2012 on Running Back, followed by “Borndom” in 2015 on Permanent Vacation. This year saw Mr. Melody dropping two great EPs, “Birsk”/”Kilian” on Futureboogie and “Tearsh” on Live At Robert Johnson, and more recently Tuff City Kids’ debut album “Adoldesscent” on Permanent Vacation. We’d expect nothing but quality from Lauer.

Melbourne’s Clubfeet make a welcome return with their second single “Canyons” from their upcoming “Deep Thoughts” EP, which follows last year’s downtempo groover “We Are Affected”. The track “Canyons” finds Clubfeet delivering an uplifting, euphoric track perfect for your late-night rides. Much of the “Deep Thoughts” EP was written on the road – in airport lounges, beer gardens and backstage green rooms, sometimes even literally on the back seat – while the band toured 2013 sophomore album “Heirs & Graces”. The new EP of four emotional, club-leaning tracks arrives on January 17th via Illusive. Pre-order it here.

White Elephant is a collaboration between Crazy P’s Jim Baron, aka Ron Basejam, and Chris Todd with Ben Smith (of Smith & Mudd fame). Their first track, the gorgeous “Sir John” of pure Balearic bliss, appeared on a limited 10” on Redux imprint all the way back in 2011 and became a definite fixture in sunset sessions. Five years after the release of “Sir John”, White Elephant return in fine form with their their first EP, entitled “The Old Euphonium”, and it’s a great one. This finely crafted four-tracker delivers the kind of sounds you might expect to hear them spinning: melody-driven, slow-burning Krautrock/Balearic jams. Our favorite cut from the EP is “Tears”, a beauty of a tune filled with blissful guitar licks and melancholic piano chords. Give it a spin above, and ride with us.

“The Old Euphonium” EP is out now on White Elephant’s very own Woman Records.
Buy it here.

Known for his work as one half of Poolside, LA-based producer Filip Nikolic, aka Turbotito, takes us for a smooth ride with his sublime new remix of “Through Your Hands Love Can Shine” by Italian musician Giorgio Tuma and ex-singer of Stereolab, Laetitia Sadier. On his remix, Turbotito injects the Jamaican-influenced original track with a healthy dose of daytime disco vibes, and turns it into something special. We first heard it on Poolside’s excellent “Contact High” mixtape and now it’s finally out through Turbotito’s newly minted imprint, Tito Records. The remix is also available as a free download.
