Why not start the week with this brand new remix from Midnight Savari. It’s been a while since we last heard from Indonesian producer Ken Adhitya, and now he’s back with a great remix of Juveniles’ second single “Ambitions”, out now Kitsuné. His dub version of the track is nothing but silky smooth goodness. Also featured on “Kitsuné Parisien II” compilation, the single is also backed with remixes by REFLEX, the Frenchy O Safari, and ex member of M83 now solo STAL. Buy here.

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!
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!

Meet Shindu. Out of the dark and into the blue, two boys and a girl from Belgium collide to create a new synth-pop sensation. With their debut single “Happy House”, a brilliant cover of Siouxsie and the Banshees’ 1980 classic song, the band pays tribute to their love of late 80s electronica with the help of Moonlight Matters (ex Villa). The “Happy House” EP is coming out on June 27th on Kitsuné, backed with remixes from Herr Styler, Midnight Savari, Polydor, Jerry Bouthier and Martians. You can now preview the full EP below. Happy!
