What a ride! Japanese producer Atsushi Yano keeps the good vibes going with “Solid Gold”, a groove-filled tune built around sun-drenched, Afro-funk-inspired rhythms that clocks in at eight minutes, but we can’t get enough of it. “Solid Gold” is taken from his “Chewy Tunes” 12″ on LPH WHITE, the sister label of the ever-excellent Brooklyn-based Let’s Play House, run by Jacques Renault and Nik Mercer. Play it loud.

Greek-born, Milan-based singer/producer Panagiotis Melidis, aka Larry Gus (Greek for “larynx”), who wowed us with last year’s debut LP “Years Not Living” for DFA, kindly offered us this unreleased track called “Human Migration”, another fine example of his talent. It’s precious. You can always count on quality from Larry Gus.

This edit with plenty of infectious vocal hooks and dreamy beach vibes is just prefect for your “Endless Summer” playlist.

11. Hidden Fees – So What

Brooklyn’s Hidden Fees, the duo of Ivan Berko and Thomas Gluibizzi, recent single “So What”, featuring vocals from Ghost Exits’ Christopher Exits, is one of our favorite tracks of the year so far.

12. Midnight Magic – Psycho For Your Love (Midnight Magic’s 2014 Rework)

Brooklyn-based cosmic disco outfit Midnight Magic never failed to amaze us.

You can grab a free download of Midnight Magic’s 2014 rework of “Psycho For Your Love”, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

13. Woolfy Vs Projections – Ask (The Smiths Cover)

California-based musicians Simon James and Dan Hastie, aka Woolfy Vs Projections, bring us a pleasant surprise, a perfectly crafted sunny cover of The Smiths’ 1986 classic “Ask” with a Balearic feel. We have already road tested this cover, and it feels so good while driving. Another exclusive track on our compilation. Can’t wait to hear the duo’s new album on Permanent Vacation.

14. COMA – Les Dilettantes (Roosevelt Mix)

This one has been on repeat on our car stereo for the past few months. Cologne’s electronic duo COMA, aka Marius Bubat and Georg Conrad, “Les Dilettantes”, taken from their superb debut LP “In Technicolor” on Kompakt, gets a disco-infused rework by fellow German producer/singer and album collaborator Marius Lauber, aka Roosevelt. Once again, Roosevelt works his magic on “Les Dilettantes”, stretching it out into a gorgeous nearly-eight-minute dancefloor heater. Loved up!

15. Miami Horror – Wild Motion (Pete Herbert Remix)

We couldn’t think of a better way to close our new “Late Summer” compilation Vol 4 than with this classy remix of “Wild Motion”, the recent single from Melbourne-via-LA electro-pop four-piece Miami Horror, by the mighty London-based Pete Herbert. What’s not to love?
