SOBO’s 10th record is here. The label, founded by Patrick Holland, the Canadian DJ/producer formerly known as Project Pablo, will drop a new EP, “Voice of Lovers SOBO Mixes”, of alternate dance remixes of Moon King’s album “Voice Of Lovers”, released last year via Montreal label Arbutus Records. The record features mixes of Moon King’s tracks “Free Time” and “6 Months” from three long time companions: Dane, Cooper Saver and SOBO’s own Patrick Holland.

Smashing out the gate is LA’s producer/DJ Cooper Saver mix of “Free Time”. His signature percussion and arp combo barrels down the scope of the song without ever coming up for air. Aptly chosen as the lead single, this mix gets a cool video by Jordan “Dr.Cool” Minkoff. Watch it above.

Moon King’s “Voice of Lovers SOBO Mixes” EP drops on April 10th via SOBO.

With his Me Me Me label now making noise all over the scene and his rep as a DJ and producer who can command venues like Panorama Bar and Fabric firmly established, multi-talented Geoff Kirkwood, aka Man Power, is another producer you just can’t pin down genre-wise.

Greek psych-pop musician Panagiotis Melidis, aka Larry Gus, just dropped a new compilation called “At Your Desk” that serves as a companion piece to his excellent second LP “I Need New Eyes” for DFA. The seven-track collection features two original tracks, a cover of Bjork’s “I Miss You”, and four epic remixes from some of the album’s standout tracks by 40 Thieves, Musik Non Stop, Luke Vibert, and Daniel.T. & Cooper Saver.

Today, we’re psyched to share with with all of you not one, but two remixes from the compilation that spin the album’s “I Need New Eyes” neurotic fidgety originals into a spaced-out dancefloor bliss-state. San Francisco’s collective 40 Thieves, known for previous releases on labels such as Permanent Vacation, Leng, and Rong Records, take us for a ride with their finely-crafted “Wawoobi Dub” version of “The Sun Describes”. And if that’s not enough, Daniel.T. has teamed up once again with friend and fellow LA producer Cooper Saver to deliver a rework of “NP-Complete” of cosmic disco goodness.

You can stream both remixes exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

Larry Gus’ “At Your Desk” is out now on DFA. Buy it here.

REACTIONS: 0

Los Angeles-based DJ/producer Cooper Saver, who is also responsible for his monthly all-night “Far Away” party and mixtape series, is someone we’ve been following for quite some time now. He’s already been making a name for himself with his productions and remixes, and even started a label called Distant Works, which he co-runs with his close friend and frequent collaborator Daniel.T. Now, he’s back to the remix game, delivering a finely crafted version of L.A.’s noise-dancers HEALTH “Stonefist”, a track taken from last year’s third album “Death Magic”. You can now grab a free download of this official remix of “Stonefist”, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

“This is a remix I did a little while ago for HEALTH, a band from LA that I’ve always found incredibly inspiring. John from the band showed me a few of the singles before the record dropped last year and asked me to pick any one I wanted to remix, so I chose ‘Stonefist’. This was really exciting since it had been six years since they put out any music and they worked so hard on this. The original version of ‘Stonefist’ is amazing and I had a lot of fun playing with it, I hope people enjoy my take on it,” says Cooper Saver.

Tracklist:

01. HNNY – Solsidan

What a better way to open our new compilation than with one of our favorite tunes of the year so far from Swedish house producer Johan Cederberg, aka HNNY. Effortlessly smooth and mellow, “Solsidan” is an absolute gem of a tune filled with looped-up vocals and sun-kissed summertime grooves.

In true Mighty Mouse fashion, this groove-filled tune will light up any dancefloor. His first ever remix on a Du Tonc track is now yours for free. Rise up!

05. The Juan MacLean – Here I Am (Octo Octa Remix)

It always feels good driving around with The Juan MacLean, the duo of John MacLean and Nancy Whang (of LCD Soundsystem fame). Even better, with a new remix for their track “Here I Am”, taken from last year’s “In A Dream” LP, which also comes as an exclusive free download courtesy of DFA Records. Brooklyn-based house producer Octo Octa has transformed “Here I Am” into an epic, slow burner. It clocks in at nearly eight minutes, and we can’t get enough of it.

06. Lauer – Oramorph

Frankfurt-based producer and Tuff City Kids member Lauer is someone we’ve been following for a long time. After dropping “Borndom”, one of our favorite records of the year, the prolific producer offers us a slow ride with his elegant track “Oramorph”, specially made for our compilation. With its atmospheric melodies and dreamy synths, the track takes us deeper into the universe of Lauer. Expect nothing but quality.

07. Daniel.T. – Boy

Let’s take a late summer drive down the Pacific Coast Highway with Los Angeles-based producer/DJ and avid vinyl collector Daniel.T., also known as one half of Cosmic Kids. His instrumental cover version of Book of Love’s “Boy” is yet another fine example of his colorful sound. The track was featured as a digital bonus track on his excellent debut mini-LP “Tetrachromat” on Young Adults. West coast vibes all round.

08. Ольга Чиповская – Сафари (This Soft Machine Edit)

Tim Sullivan, what a guy! Having already impressed us with his recent debut “On & On”/”This Place Was Meant For Me” EP on Eskimo Recordings, Australian producer/DJ has contributed to our compilation his first ever edit under his This Soft Machine moniker. As expected, This Soft Machine delivers the goods, a killer rework of Olga Chipovskaya’s ’80s electro track “Safari” with infectious grooves for your next exercises on the dancefloor!

09. Cameo Culture – Told You So

Colorful chill-out grooves, lush horns, and tropical-tinged percussions. Brooklyn-based producer/DJ Dave Robertson, better known as Cameo Culture, brings some serious summer vibes with his track “Told You So”, our favorite cut from his recent debut album “Burning Bright” on Wolf + Lamb Records. A perfect tune for your next sunset ride.

10. NO ZU – Ui Yia Uia (Bonus Beat with Maria Minerva)

More heat beat goodness coming to you direct from NO ZU. While their new single “Ui Yia Uia”, a slow boogie groover, is getting plenty of spins, the Melbourne heat beat collective delivers a “bonus beat” version of the track, specially made for our compilation. It’s an infectious clarinet and sax-filled jam that features vocals from Los Angeles-based musician Maria Minerva. “Ui Yia Uia” is the first taste from NO ZU’s forthcoming new album “Afterlife”, which is expected to arrive early next year via Chapter Music.

11. In Flagranti – As Fast As I Can

Get your fill of sleazy vintage disco with “As Fast As I Can”, a classy tune from In Flagranti, our beloved Swiss duo of Sasha Crnobrnja and Alex Gloor. Released earlier this year via their own Codek imprint, this track is exactly what you’d expect from In Flagranti and arguably one of the pair’s finest tunes we’ve heard in a while.

12. Ben Browning – Friends Of Mine (Cooper Saver Remix)

We’re big fans of Cut Copy’s bassist Ben Browning, so we’re delighted to include on our compilation a previously unreleased remix of “Friends Of Mine”. Taken from his recent debut album “Turns”, the track gets the remix treatment by LA producer/DJ Cooper Saver, the man behind the Far Away parties and mixtape series. He infuses “Friends Of Mine” with an extra dose of synths, delivering a deliciously summertime jam. What’s not to love?

13. Knightlife – Haus Angeles

Absolute fire from Melbourne-based producer and Cutters Records’ very own Mike Gamwell, aka Knightlife. For our compilation, Knightlife has reworked The B Boys’ ’80s classic “Rock The House”, turning it into a house floor-filler. Inspired by the L.A. leg of the last tour he did with Cut Copy, the “Haus Angeles” edit is a banger of a tune. Play it loud!

14. McFadden & Whitehead – Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now (Klaves Edit)

Get into the groove with this exclusive disco edit from Polish wunderkind Mikolaj Gramowski, better known as Klaves, who last graced us with his killer double-A-side single “People” b/w “Oh No” on PMR Beat Club. The multi-talented producer works his magic on McFadden & Whitehead’s classic “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now”, delivering a dancefloor-ready edit full of infectious grooves.

15. Navid Izadi – Messin (feat. Angelica Bess from Body Language)

Multi-talented San Francisco-based artist Navid Izadi brings some serious heat with his newest track “Messin”. Channeling the vibes of uplifting, ’80s Latin freestyle, Navid Izadi delivers an addictive club tune featuring vocals from Body Language’s Angelica Bess. With its lush synth pads, housey piano keys and soulful boy/girl vocals, “Messin” is just about as infectious as it gets. Exclusive free download, courtesy of Wolf + Lamb Records.

16. Homework – Yakushima Dreams

Filled with mellow grooves and gentle piano stabs, “Yakushima Dreams” finds Homework, the dynamic Amsterdam-based duo of Tom Waist and Zip Stolk, capturing the sun-drenched warmth of summertime deep house. Taken from their recent “Palindrome 1” EP on Let’s Play House white-label series, “Yakushima Dreams” is a farewell letter to the end of the summer.
