From a studio near the sea, Dublin’s David Kitt continues his New Jackson adventures, making nocturnal house jams with a ghostly disco tint. After releasing the solid “The Night Mail” EP on local label Pogo Recordings in 2011, New Jackson returns with his gorgeous debut release “Sat Around Here Waiting” for John Talabot’s label, Hivern Discs. His new 12” also features two remixes by Fort Romeau and Pional. Give “Sat Around Here Waiting” a spin above, and shoot out the lights.
New Jackson’s new 12″, “Sat Around Here Waiting” EP, will be released on March 4th.
We suggest you revisit New Jackson’s cool animated video for their great tune “The Night Mail”. Directed by Fergal Brennan.

Once more during this year we have been sharing with you tons of free music, and today we’re really excited to reveal La.Ga.Sta.’s Top 40 most downloaded tracks of 2012. This is a chart compiled by our readers, who by the way have great taste. We couldn’t agree more. Breakbot’s “Programme” is top of the list, followed closely by Perseus’ “Seychelles” and Chromatics’ “Kill For Love”. Of course there is more to this list. Who can drive passed beloved artists such as Todd Terje, John Talabot, Poolside, The Magician, Classixx, Moon Boots, among others, or tracks like Slow Hands’ cover of Bon Iver’s “Towers” and Pional’s remix of The Rapture’s “In The Grace Of Your Love”.
It’s been an amazing year vroomers, and this is the list that proves it. Here’s your chance to revisit 2012′s most popular mpFrees. Fill it up (once again) and stay gas all the way to 2013. Enjoy!

We first heard it on Jamie xx’s recent “Boiler Room” session, and now you can stream the epic 8-minute “Blinded” remix of The xx’s “Chained” by Spanish house wiz John Talabot and fellow beatmaker Pional. This remix pays homage to The Streets’ “Blinded By The Lights”. And it’s a great one!

Obviously, we have a great deal of love for John Talabot here at La.Ga.Sta. Today, the Barcelona-based house producer dropped the deluxe edition of his debut album “ƒin”, one of our favorite albums of 2012. This deluxe version includes previously unreleased bonus cuts and quality remixes by the likes of Pachanga Boys, Kenton Slash Demon, Bullion, and Bostro Pesopeo. It also features this tropical-flavored 80′s Tapemix of “Zanzibar”, which you can stream above. It’s an absolute gem!

It’s been a long journey, but the second installment on John Talabot’s label Hivern Discs edit series, called “HivernEd”, finally see the light of day. Following the release of last year’s “Hiverned#1″, the second release features “Invitation To Love” on the a-side, a great dancefloor-ready edit by the mysterious TB. Based on Twin Peaks OST’s classic “Laura Palmer’s Theme” from Angelo Badalamenti, this euphoric refix has been a dancefloor weapon of John Talabot’s DJ sets. You can now stream it above. The b-side includes Marc Piñol’s edit “Arrebato”.
