Here comes the “House Of Kolour”. For the second installment in their series of label collaborations, House Of Disco Records teamed up with US house label Kolour Recordings to bring us some serious heat. This 12-track compilation features fresh new tunes, remixes, and previously unreleased tracks by the likes of Casino Times, Medlar, Ejeca, Sleazy McQueen, The Dead Rose Music Company, LeSale, Duff Disco, and many more. And it’s a great one.
Big love for Oxford’s house duo Casino Times “Some Of Her Love”, Ejeca’s “Give Me Up” and Debonair’s smooth remix of Melbourne’s Mic Newman, aka Fantastic Man, “Groove With You”, which you can stream above. Fill it up!
“House Of Kolour” will be released on December 17th. Preview the whole thing here.
This Saturday we revisit “That’s The Truth”, a deep and essential dancefloor burner of De La Soul’s “All Good”, featuring Chaka Khan, from Oxford’s house duo Casino Times. This rework was included on last year’s excellent EP “Friends Of The Family” on Sccucci Manucci. Still sounds so good. Give it a spin below.

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!

You may remember this huge remix from The Magician’s magic tape 14 back in August. It was one of the highlights for sure. Finally, Casino Times’ synth-driven nu disco take on Dj Nibc’s “The Doorman”, featuring Anthony Mills, is out now on Trunkfunk Records. But this is not the only release from rising Oxford-based duo of Joe Spencer and Nick Church. They just dropped their debut EP “Laughing Gas”, which proves that these guys can do some excellent work. The truth is we can’t stop listening to their amazing rework of De La Soul’s “All Good”, featuring Chaka Khan, from the EP “Friends Of The Family”, which was recently released on Sccucci Manucci. It’s called “That’s The Truth”. Give it a spin below:
