Following three excellent edit 12”s last year, Phil South’s Golf Channel label continues to pay homage to the iconic Mangiami restaurant, one of New York’s most creative nightspots in the last decade, with a new compilation called “Mangiami – La Compilation”. Translated literally as “Eat Me”, Gianfranco Costa’s Lower East Side Italian restaurant was a legendary hang out for the city’s underground cognoscenti like DJ Harvey, Tim Sweeney or Eric Duncan over a six year period after it opened in 2006.

The eight-track compilation will feature contributions from Mangiami’s friends and regulars, including Dedication, a project helmed by UK producer/DJ Felix Dickinson, Populette, Thugfucker, Nick Chacona, Alex From Tokyo & Bing Ji Ling, Totes Preesh, Golf Channel’s own The Loose Control Band, and disco specialist William Burnett under his Grackle alias. “The music is a lovely reflection of how the nights went down there, just happy, good time stuff – whether it’s the more relaxed or the more banging end of the spectrum – both are represented,” says Phil South. You can now stream Dedication’s track “Let Me Rock You”, an absolute peach of a tune, above.

“Mangiami – La Compilation” will arrive on October 23 on Golf Channel.

And he’s back. Two years after the release of his excellent debut LP, 2013’s “Years Not Living”, Greek singer/producer Panagiotis Melidis, aka Larry Gus, returns to DFA with his second full-length album “I Need New Eyes”, set to arrive on October 2. The new eight-track record is said to employ “clearer songwriting structures”, and its title is based on a supposed quote by Proust, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

Today, we’re treated to a stream of the album’s first single “NP-Complete”. Clocking in at nearly seven minutes, the track finds Larry Gus doing what he does best: delivering a groove-filled tune laced with slow-burning, psychedelic textures, bright melodies, falsetto vocals, and infectious layers of percussion. Blast it above.

Larry Gus’ new album “I Need New Eyes” will drop on October 2 on DFA. Pre-order it here.
