International Feel Turns Five

September 22nd, 2014

In 2008, Ibiza-based producer Mark Barrott started his International Feel imprint after moving to Uruguay, and thus came a slew of quality Balearic-influenced releases by DJ Harvey’s Locussolus project, Gatto Fritto, Rocha, Mind Fair, Bepu N’Gali, amongst others. Five years and a whole lot of music later, the label is celebrating its fifth birthday by giving away a few tracks that were never released for download. So do yourself a favor and grab a free download of “Be With Me Tonight”, a beautifully balearic tune that was made at the same time as Mark Barrott’s “Sketches From An Island” album sessions, as well as an instrumental version of Locussolus’ “I Want It”. Happy Birthday!

Locussolus: “Telephone”

June 10th, 2012

Almost a year since the release of his great first album under the Locussolus moniker, legendary DJ Harvey returns as Locussolus with a new single on Uruguayan imprint International Feel. Recorded in Venice Beach, California, the release includes two tracks “Berghain”, an ode to the Berlin nightclub of the same name, and “Telephone”, a sun-kissed disco boogie. What a tune! The Locussolus project also includes Sam Fox, Tara Selleck, and Josh Marcy. You can preview the whole thing here.

Locussolus’ EP “Berghain” / “Telephone” is coming out on July 9th.


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!
