Hypnolove: “Winter In The Sun (Pilooski Radio Edit)”

July 5th, 2013

It’s summertime, so let’s take a ride with this sunshine-filled edit of Hypnolove’s catchy track “Winter In The Sun” by Parisian producer Pilooski. Shine on!

The original track, which features the vocal talents of British singer Findlay Brown, is taken from their Mickey Moonlight-produced album “Ghost Carnival”. You’ll remember we posted the video for “Come To My Empire” back in May.

Out now on Record Makers. Get it here.

Discodeine: “Aydin” (feat. Kevin Parker) Video

May 2nd, 2013

Two years after the release of their self-titled debut album, which included the amazing single “Synchronize” (feat. Jarvis Cocker), French electro duo Discodeine, Pilooski and Pentile, have returned to our speakers once more with their brand new jam “Aydin”. This time round, the duo have worked with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker on vocals to deliver a track full of infectiously dance grooves, violins and dirty-minded beats.

“Aydin”, the first taste of Discodeine’s upcoming second album, comes hand-in-hand with its own video, which you can watch below. The EP is out now via Dirty/Pschent, and includes remixes by the likes of Para One, Junior Boys’ Jeremy Greenspan, and Timothy J Fairplay. Get it here.

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!
