02. Paul Weller – Starlite (Black Van Instrumental Remix)
Enter this Black Van and drive off into the sunset once more…

03. Mitzi – Morning Light (Softwar Remix)
Softwar can do no wrong. Already a favorite, their remix of Mitzi’s “Morning Light” is one of the tracks we are listening to while driving to the beach. It hits you like a morning light.

04. Hannulelauri – Zombie Tropicana
We’re happy to finally share with you our favorite track from Finnish duo Hannulelauri for free download. Yes, this August sounds like…Zombie Tropicana once more.

05. Count Jackula – Breakfast (The Supermen Lovers Remix)
Time for breakfast under a coconut tree. Count Jackula serves congas, latin-sounding brasses, and synth disco bass, while The Supermen Lovers mix them in a Moullinex super blender. Exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

06. Mindless Boogie – Dolly (Peter Visti Edit)
A blast from the past. Thanks to Mindless Boogie this rare and stunning edit of “Dolly” by Peter Visti finally finds its way to our compilation in 320kbs glory. It’s always nice to drive around with Dolly Parton.

07. Munk – Violent Love (The Twelves Remix – Jerry Bouthier Edit)
From Kitsuné to Gomma , Jerry Bouthier made this killer edit of The Twelves remix of Munk’s “Violent Love”. Enough to take you from here to disco heaven!

08. Humorous Norwegian Disco Alias – Turn On
You may haven’t heard of Humorous Norwegian Disco Alias, but we’re sure you know their alter ego Drop Out Orchestra. All you have to do to turn it on, is turn it up!

09. Headman – Be Loved (Dub)
Headman is certainly someone we love. He was kind enough to offer us exclusively the dub version of his new track “Be Loved”, off the forthcoming Relish Recordings Compilation 3. Feel the love.

10. Mighty Mouse – Between The Pavement And The Stars (Mario Basanov Dub)
A great combo. Mighty Mouse take us from the pavement to the stars and Mario Basanov works his magic to keep us there. Yes, sometimes disco can fly you to the stars.

11. Acid Washed – Change (Anteros & Thanaton Remix)
Another track exclusively on our compilation. Anteros & Thanaton turns Acid Washed’s “Change” into a 7 miniute piano driven cut. Taken from Acid Washed’s forthcoming “Change” remix EP.

12. All The Lights – Chasing Colours (Plastic Plates Remix)
Brand new remix from our favorite newcomer producer Felix Bloxsom, aka Plastic Plates. Taken from All The Lights’ debut EP “Chasing Colours”, out now on etcetc. Turn all the lights on.

13. Jeremy Glenn – New Life (Perseus ‘Summer of 83’ Remix)
Jeremy Glenn gave us a new life this summer with one of the finest tracks we’ve heard this year. This remix by rising DJ/Producer Perseus takes us back to the summery nights of ’83. This is like deja vu all over again.

14. Lazydisco – More Tigers (MODE Remix)
From Lazydisco’s amazing latest EP “More Tigers” on Discotexas (still on repeat) here comes MODE’s take on the track, to make us dive into the nearest pool. Bloom!

You asked for it, now you can have it. Bite into summer.

Black Van: “Moments Of Excellence” (feat. Holy Ghost!)

April 27th, 2011

Black Van (aka Kris Menace and KoweSix) and Holy Ghost!, were so thrilled by the result of their first mash up “Holy Mashopolis!” (the instrumental of “Yearning” and the vocals of “I Will Come Back” on top), that they decided to work on an original song together. Originally the vocal version of “Moments Of Excellence” was supposed to come out on the first Black Van EP for Permanent Vacation, but it didn’t happen.
Now the new version of “Moments Of Excellence” will be released digitally on May 13 via Permanent Vacation, backed with a blazing remix by Aeroplane and a brand new Black Van track “Express”. You can stream Holy Ghost!’s version of Black Van’s “Moments Of Excellence” below. Moments of excellence indeed…
