Live At Robert Johnson is on fire and so is Davis as he releases his third EP via our favorite label. Davis Genuino from São Paulo is more than a producer and a DJ; he’s a founding member of the ODD queer warehouse-party collective, which is an artistic endeavor that helped transform the creative landscape of his hometown and set ideas in motion. He also runs the label “In Their Feelings” which is the synonym to innovation and freshness. In his new six-track EP “Dance Peralta”, Davis surely hits on the motifs and distinctive dynamics for which LARJ can always be trusted upon, as he dusts off his TR-808, Juno, MS-20, and gets firmly into his musical stride for six electroid tracks.

The record’s B-side amazing first track “Fissura na Neblina” is premiering here on LAGASTA today and it takes just one hearing for your sensations to wake up. The trippy melody is the perfect one for our beloved rides alongside the old school beats with the new school vibe, the analog synth soundscapes, and the electro basslines. And, yes, the synths are so creatively detuned! Listen to the track above and enjoy this beautiful ride! Stay focused on the inspiring vocal samples’ message.

Davis’ “Dance Peralta” EP will drop on June 19th via Live At Robert Johnson.

It’s premiere time with a debut 4-track EP by the super talented producer and DJ Victor Shan via our beloved Live At Robert Johnson. As the name states Live at Robert Johnson is the associated label of the respected – and one of the best in the globe – venue in Offenbach, Germany and incorporates what the club stands for. The imprint has been establishing a solid ground for the new Frankfurt sound since 2009. LARJ not only features seasoned veterans, but likewise emerging talents and those already paving their way with quality productions. Victor, from the outskirts of Frankfurt, is best known, apart from his interaction with the mighty Gerd Janson, for his high quality house music and his dynamic evolution.

Today we are excited to premiere the A-side’s track “Nordring Trance”; an absolute eargasm. The tune is a cosmic ride to the essence of deep house music with its sounds unfolding so harmoniously that they get stuck in your mind. The capturing deep synth bass, lush detuned amazing synths in a vast variety and full-bodied analogue soundscapes, all underpinned by a pleasing steady beat, create an intense, great track, perfectly suitable for the dancefloors we’ve all missed so much. Blast the track above and enjoy the ride!

Oh yes, we know that you have been waiting for this ride patiently and finally here it is! The fabulous Massimiliano Pagliara is back with his third full-length album, entitled “Feel Live”. The Italian producer/DJ, feeling enriched and inspired by his latest travelling and exploring-the-world experiences, delivers a playful and imaginative work to date. He states, “I felt like I have lived more than ever. Getting to discover all these beautiful places around the world and meeting so many lovely interesting people, has inspired me in many different ways”.

The 12-track album was recorded in several intimate, sometimes improvised studio settings between Los Angeles, Portland, and Massimiliano’s homebase in Berlin as well as at airports and on intercontinental flights high up in the sky. It features guest appearances from Private Agenda, Peaking Lights, Kim Ann Foxman and instrumental contributions by Fort Romeau, Tim K, and Jules Etienne.

Electro enthusiasts and house lovers this record is for you. We could not but admire the tracks’ spacial, almost orchestral qualities. It’s a ride to cosmic sounds as Massimiliano Pagliara successfully makes us part of his around-the-globe travelling adventures. “Feel Live” is pure grandeur and elegance. It feels like an eternal movement. “It’s as emotional as sensual, as vibrant as the first ray of light after a thunderstorm has cleared the air”. Here’s our track-by-track review of each track.

01. A Winter In Los Angeles (feat. Private Agenda)
We ride into winter with melodic piano chords, an absorptive straight beat and a groovy bassline. The sensual vocals by Private Agenda drive the track into a magical space.

02. Trust The Direction Of The Wind (feat. Peaking Lights
A stellar track with playful rhythm and gripping disco house vibes. Make love and fly!

03. Feel Live
A mind blowing track! It’ s nothing less than the essence of Massi’s abilities. The track’s resonating synth melody is just captivating.

04. Villaggio Paradiso (On Acid)
It’s time for you to hit the dance floor with this electro acid- house masterpiece.

05. I Promise
This two-minute track totally gives you a ride to space. Enjoy!

06. Geometric Crystal Spaces
A beauty of a tune with a flirtatious break rhythm and vocoder robotic vocals.

07. Endless Change
Massimilano’s message is clear: Don’t stand still. Don’t keep looking back. Know where you are coming from, but don’t remain petrified by the past. Take a chance at “Endless Change”, instead. Move on!

08. Raving At The Acropolis
Don’t judge a track by its title? Just do it this time! And feel the tuned hi-hats and all the shimmering layers laid upon the beat!

09. Fare Spazio
A perfectly crafted track with melancholic chords and arpeggios alongside an immersive bass line!

10. Properties Of Distance
This is Massimiliano Pagliara making music, transforming all his experiences into musical movements.

11. Floating Room (feat. Fort Romeau)
The bongos, the beat echoes, the amazing guitar riffs and a laid-back bass line create a feverish atmosphere.

12. Two Weeks Later (feat. Kim Ann Foxman)
This is essential listening for any road trip playlist. The track is full of a Balearic sense, hypnotic synth harmony sounds featuring Kim Ann Foxman’s magnificent and passionate vocals.
