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!

Storm Queen: “It Goes On”

November 15th, 2011

Day after day, after day, it goes on… The wait is finally over. Morgan Geist’s project Storm Queen dropped today the second single “It Goes On” and sounds exactly what you expect: a killer house jam straight from New York. Like last year’s massive “Look Right Through”, our favorite 2010 track, “It Goes On” features the vocals of Damon C. Scott, who Geist discovered on the NYC subway. We hope we won’t have to wait another year before we hear the next Storm Queen release. Fill it up! Keep an eye for the ““Look Right Through” remixes by Dimitri From Paris, Aeroplane, Jamie Jones and Art Department. Out soon on Defected Records.

“It Goes On” is out now digitally on Environ Records. Buy it here.
