Antony & Cleopatra: “Sirens”

March 3rd, 2015

After dropping three well-received collaborative tracks with Lancelot, Beni, and Sammy Bananas last year, Antony & Cleopatra, the duo of London singer Anita Blay (formerly CocknBullKid) and Alexander Burnett (of Australian indie pop-rockers Sparkadia) returns to our station with their first ever original single, called “Sirens”. The track finds the pair delivering a perfectly crafted house tune with soulful boy/girl vocals, effortlessly smooth grooves, and a sax solo. We love it. Give it a spin or two above, and drive slow. Expect great things from Antony & Cleopatra in the months to come. Update: Below, you can watch the video for “Sirens”, directed by Antony & Cleopatra and Andrew Bird.

The “Sirens” EP, which comes complete with remixes by the likes of Indian Summer, Clarens, and Action, is out now digitally via Vitalic Noise. Buy it here.

Beni: “Protect” (feat. Antony & Cleopatra)

June 20th, 2014

After dropping his dancefloor-ready tune “Love On The Run” a few months ago, Sydney’s producer/DJ Beni brings more heat with his addictive new single “Protect”, a playful slice of ’90s-flavored melodic house. This track features soulful vocals from Antony & Cleopatra, the newly-formed duo of London singer Anita Blay (formerly CocknBullKid) and Alexander Burnett (of Sparkadia fame), who recently collaborated with Lancelot on his much-played house jam “Givin’ It Up”.

The “Protect”/”Can’t Hide” EP will drop on July 11th via Modular.

Beni: “Love On The Run”

November 12th, 2013

It’s certainly been a long time since Sydney-based producer/DJ Beni, released any new material, but now he’s back in action with his new house jam “Love On The Run”. Produced by Kim Moyes of The Presets, “Love On The Run” with Prince Terrence on vocal duties, is a perfect slice of futuristic dancefloor heat.

The tune is taken from Beni’s forthcoming new EP “Love on the Run” / “Summer’s Gone”, the follow-up to 2011’s fantastic debut album “House Of Beni”, which will arrive on November 29 via Modular. The EP also includes two remixes from L-Vis 1990 and Riton.

Beni: La.Ga.Sta. Mix

March 29th, 2012

One of our favorite Australian producers Beni pulls over at our station, this time not with a new single or remix from his excellent debut album “House Of Beni” on Modular, but with a great mixtape exclusively for La.Ga.Sta. Although he’s still in the middle of his US tour supporting his new single “Last Night”, Beni was kind enough to dedicate some time in order to put together a mix full of disco house jams, which sounds pretty awesome. Beni likes to keep things shrouded in mystery, so there’s no tracklisting. We said it once, we’ll say it again: If Beni’s actual house where as it sounds, then we’d pack our stuff and move in with him. It’s time to dance. Press play and enter the house.

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!
