6th Borough Project: “U Know U”

March 17th, 2014

It’s been almost three years since Glasgow’s disco-house fusionists 6th Borough Project excellent debut album “One Night In The Borough” saw a release through Delusions Of Grandeur. Recently, the mighty duo of Graeme Clark, aka The Revenge, and Craig Smith followed up that LP with a second full-length called “Borough 2 Borough”, delivering a quality collection of well-crafted tracks of their trademark classy style.

Not surprisingly, the album is yet another offering of low-slung funk, hypnotic vibes, smoky house grooves, and upbeat, loopy disco. It’s a great listen from start to finish. Of course, we’d expect nothing less from this pair. Here, we have for you the track “U Know U”, one of our favorite cuts from “Borough 2 Borough”, that takes things in a darker direction. Give it a spin or two above, and make sure to check out the music video for their latest single “Read My Mind”, featuring Paul Joseph,which was directed by Matthew Reed.

6th Borough Project’s new album “Borough 2 Borough” is out now via Delusions Of Grandeur. You can buy your copy here.

La.Ga.Sta.: Best of 2011

December 30th, 2011

Artwork: Yannis Dragasakis

La.Ga.Sta. offered its services to many weary travellers once more this year. By “following rivers” they drove “through the green” and found themselves in “English Riviera” only to come back again to our station for another refill.
Taking a Friday drive down this year’s memory lane, we think back on our numerous stops including among others:

Our after-hours, absolutely wicked dj set in the VIP room of Melt! Festival. We might have missed Cut Copy’s performance but we certainly had a blast. Shout out to T.E.E.D., Azari & III, Metronomy, Siriusmo, and Planningtorock for their stunning gigs.

The 15-track La.Ga.Sta. Summer Compilation 2011 with lots of exclusives released in August and downloaded by more than 15.000 vroomers in less than a month. Thank you guys!

The La.Ga.Sta mixtapes by the amazing Drop Out Orchestra, CFCF, Das Moth, Pharao Black Magic, Marius, and Mickey. Much appreciated.

Dancing ‘till we dropped with the Can You Relate? team at their super cool parties in Thessaloniki together with The Magician, Shit Robot, Villa, Moullinex, In Flagranti, Acid Washed, and Stopmakingme.

A huge thanks coming out to all of you who filled up our inbox with tons of tunes and mixes, wish we could post them all. Keep them coming.

It’s always such a great pleasure sharing sounds, words and feelings with all the people we love. We don’t really like making lists since we always forget to include everything we loved through the year. But, by popular demand, our pit stop crew tried to bring the Best of 2011 lists (albums, tracks, remixes, EP’s, video) based on what we played most on our car stereo. It was certainly an amazing year with great releases that gave this station the “gas” it needed to carry on driving. Check out our lists below in no particular order. We don’t have winners or losers in this race only drivers that finally make it to the finish line.

This is the 2011 sound of La.Ga.Sta. Vroooommm!
