Let’s ride…To celebrate the release of their first EP “Dirty Talk” on Kitsuné, Oliver, the dynamic duo of Vaughn Oliver (U-Tern) and Oliver Goldstein (aka Oligee), did a 27-minute great mix called “Audio Speedwagon”. In their own words: “We wanted to do a mix of some of our favorite obscure, lesser known disco/italo/funk tracks from the past and put them all together in a fun, fast-paced, mega-mix style. Not for the faint of heart, buckle up!”. The “Dirty Talk” EP is out today. Buy here.
Black Van never disappoint. This time the duo of Kris Menace and KoweSix work their magic on this super tasty remix of Oliver’s brand new track “Dirty Talk”. Oliver’s first 4-track EP of the same name will be released on January 16th via Kitsuné. It also features a remix by Punks Jump Up and another original track “Walk With Me”. We have no doubt that 2012 will be another great year for Oliver. Below, you can grab the “Dirty Talk” minimix for free. Go!

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!
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!

Throughout 2011 we have been offering you lots of free music. Here is La.Ga.Sta.’s most downloaded tracks of the year.

There are some great tunes in there as well, from Rapture, M83 and Washed Out to Mylo, Discodeine, and Poolside. Not to mention Villa’s take on Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” – another exclusive track from La.Ga.Sta. This is your Top 20 chart. Fill it up (one more time) and enjoy the ride.
