We introduced you to California based producer, musician, and DJ Cantor when we shared a top notch rework of his track “Hannet’s Dream” by Modular Project back in April. Now he’s back with hi great new EP “Convergence” on his own label Underground Pacific, after delivering some quality tunes on labels such as Correspondant, Trafico Music and Motordiscs. The “Convergence” EP is an emblematic rendering of Cantor’s attitude in sonic form – a sampling from his consciousness. Four tracks, three originals, and one remix, influenced by new wave and post punk, the record presents auditory concepts through which to explore the fundamentals of Cantor’s music: distortions, psychedelia, romanticism, and sonic cheerfulness.

With the original track “Recurrent” being simply majestic, today we are excited to premiere the track’s acid remix by the one and only Alexander Robotnick, who infuses the tune with his own character offering to the clubbers a mesmerizing atmospheric dance-floor trip. We love the repetitive arpeggiator motives, the hi-hats, and the strong beat. It’s one of those tunes that when you listen to, you close your eyes and you feel your body moving. Blast the track above, exclusively on LAGASTA.

Cantor’s “Convergence” EP drops on June 22nd via Underground Pacific. The EP’s vinyl edition is carefully tended featuring a unique contribution of the Italian artist Fabio Baggio (artbajo). Pre-order it here.

It’s premiere time! Opilec Music’s next release is the I-Robots’ 2008 debut album remixed with a lineup of artists involved that would be hard to beat. I-Robots, aka “Gianluca Pandullo”, from Turin, Italy native eclectic DJ, producer, remixer, and A&R man has been active in the scene in one way or another since the early 80’s. He launched Opilec Music officially in the early 2008 and released L.O.R. CD album together with a vinyl series but also with a special single for Ornaments DE with the first remix by G. Digger of WordAndSound DE; thanks to Martin Müller (youAndme/Rotary Cocktail/Ornaments). From 2016 the L.O.R. tracks were remixed by an international team including the Italian electro living legend Alexander Robotnick. From 1983’s “Problèmes D’ Amour” till now, Maurizio Dami’s electrodisco anthems have shook down dancefloors all over the world and have inspired and influenced the so-called modern producers. In the hearts and minds of countless dancers over the years, Alexander Robotnick is the sound of European electronic music in the 1980s.

Today, we are psyched to premiere Alexander Robotnick’s killer remix of “Kind Of Intrigue”. The track creates a one of a kind gloomy robotic atmosphere with an impressive wide range of top synths, which is just Robotnick doing his magic once again. He merges arpeggiated electro bass lines with a vast variety of vintage 70’s sounds, while vocal samples make their appearance and the track sets you on a trail of a truly “intriguing” musical discovery. The remix evolves harmoniously from a classic electro tune to a melodic dance anthem. It feels like a flower blooming. Blast the great track above and enjoy the ride!

I-Robots’ album “Laws Of Robotics: 2020” is out now via Opilec Music. Get it here.

Get ready for a funky ride! Toronto-based producer/DJ Mark Penner, better known as Cyclist, returns to his disco roots with his new 12”, a four-track offering called “Incoming Instructions”. This effort marks his debut release for MANI/PEDI Records, which he co-runs alongside RAC’s Karl Kling. Today, we’re excited to share with you an exclusive stream of the record’s title track, which finds Cyclist in such fine form. Loose and decidedly funky, “Incoming Instructions” is a killer tune filled with live bass, disco guitar riffs and analog synth goodness. Midway through, the track makes a surprisingly shift, introducing Joel Klaverkamp’s peculiar HAL 9000-esque vocals. We’ve had it on repeat all day.

The “Incoming Instructions” 12”, which also features a cosmic space jam called “Meta” and two remixes of the title track by Italo-disco legend Alexander Robotnick and Brioski, is out now on MANI/PEDI Records. Pick up your 12” here.
