TRACKLIST:

01. Kasper Bjørke – Corsica [exclusive]

What a better way to open La.Ga.Sta.’s compilation Vol. 9 than with an exclusive new track, entitled “Corsica”, from Danish extraordinaire Kasper Bjørke. Our beloved producer and DJ takes us for a trip to Corsica with a sublime new track that rewards repeat listens. It’s yet another example of Kasper Bjørke doing what he does best. What a ride!

02. Massimiliano Pagliara – Make Love And Push – Ups (Edit) [exclusive]

It’s time for a killer disco edit from fabulous Italian-born, Berlin-based producer and DJ Massimiliano Pagliara, who always delives the goods. His contribution to our new compilation is a previously unreleased track, entitled “Make Love And Push – Ups”, a perfectly-crafted rework of a disco treasure. Pure magic!

03. ROTCIV – Steamy [exclusive]

Berlin-based Brazilian producer ROTCIV’s great skills are here once again, as well as his fantastic dark synths. The track “Steamy” is an explosive tune, diving into 80s electro-disco soundscapes and blowing your mind with its cosmically atmospheric melodies.

04. Larry Gus – Taped Hands Here (Boys Shorts Remix) [exclusive]

Something special comes to our station from DFA Records. Boys Shorts, the duo of Vangelis, one half of LAGASTA and Greek-born, London-based Tareq, are making their debut with this club-ready remix of Larry Gus’ new single “Taped Hands Here”, a great tune from his upcoming new album “Subservient”, his fourth release for DFA, set to drop on October 25th. This six-minute remix is nothing less than pure dancefloor brilliance. Grab Boys Shorts’ first remix, exclusively on our compilation, and keep an eye out for these guys!

05. Fabrizio Mammarella – Unit [exclusive]

Italian producer Fabrizio Mammarella, who is also behind the Slow Motion & Wrong Era labels, is part of our compilation with “Unit”, a ten-minute epic electronic odyssey. It’s hard to put into words just how good this track is with beautifully crafted synths and classic drums. It ebbs and flows beautifully carrying the listener along with it. Just check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

06. Lena Platonos – Cyaniris (Anatolian Weapons 6 A.M. Eternal)

Thanks to Dark Entries, Lena Platonos’ third solo album “Lepidopetra”, which was originally released back in 1986, was reissued in 2018. Four contemporary Greek producers got also recruited to deliver remixes of their favorite tracks, and Anatolian Weapons works his magic on “Cyaniris” offering a magical late night ride through the New Wave forest. A simply amazing dark synth-pop treat. It’s now yours, courtesy of Dark Entries.

07. Kiwi – Time Cycle [exclusive]

London-based producer Kiwi never cease to amaze us. For our new compilation, he contributes a brand-new track called “Time Cycle” that finds him in such fine form. And this quality tune is a definitely a ride to remember.

08. Sui Zhen – Matsudo City Life

A stellar track from Melbourne pop artist Sui Zhen. The track “Matsudo City Life” has been on repeat on our car stereo for a while now, and its lifted from her forthcoming album “Losing, Linda”, a follow-up to 2015’s “Secretly Susan”, set to drop on Septembwer 27th.

09. Younger Than Me feat. Local Suicide – Late Sunday Night [exclusive]

Younger Than Me and Local Suicide’s collaborative contribution exclusively for our compilation. Both duos have been killing it lately with a solid string of releases. With “Late Sunday Night” they deliver a hard-hitting, acid-infused party starter. Play it loud!

10. Bawrut – Fake Meditation [exclusive]

Let’s take a ride with Italian-born, Madrid-based producer and DJ Bawrut. Heavily influenced by the work of Chicago pioneers, the established European teachers and every sound he can find on the internet or in digging sessions, Bawrut’s taste toes a wonderfully balanced line between classics and brand new tracks. His contribution to our compilation, an exclusive new track called “Fake Meditation”, is an epic ride that clocks at nearly ten minutes. Not to be missed.

11. Jacques Renault – BK Slice (Spencer Parker Works Harder Mix)

Last year, Let’s Play House released LPH cofounder, Jacques Renault’s sophomore album, “BK Club Beats, Breaks & Versions”, a back-to-basics effort with Renault doing what he does best. Few weeks ago, four remixes were presented and one of them is yours now for absolutely free. The track “BK Slice” got remixed by London-born, Berlin-based Spencer Parker and the result is a sunny disco strutter spinning across the dancefloor.

12. Underground System – Just A Place (Gerd Janson Remix)

Running Back head honcho and Tuff City Kids member Gerd Janson delivers a driving big room friendly interpretation of “Just A Place”, a downtown-NY-meets-afro-disco-stylings tune, from Brooklyn-based band Underground System. The original track is taken from the band’s debut “What Are You” LP. Held together by Janson’s signature pulsing italo bass, New Beat influence, this dancefloor-ready remix is now available for free downlload, courtesy of Soul Clap Records.

13. Kapote – Delirio Italiano

Italo disco at its best! Kapote is the enigmatic staple of Berlin’s Toy Tonics label and back in April he released his first album titled “What It Is”, which included “Delirio Italiano”. A disco flavored house track with a deep bassline and delicious funky vibes. For our compilation Vol. 9, Kapote kindly contributes with this dancefloor-filler track, we have on repeat all this time, and which has just been released as part of the remix EP2. It’s yours, courtesy of Toy Tonics.

14. Kito Jempere – Lifetime Theme (Lipelis Kebab House Remix)

The track has been on repeat and we can’t get enough of it. Our beloved Kito Jempere’s track “Lifetime Theme” got reworked by Lipelis, a Russian studio wizard and music maniac. The result is a cosmic treasure of sounds; exotic chords, tropical vibes, lively melodies and that bass, which is absolutely captivating. It’s now yours for free, courtesy of Italy’s Hell Yeah Recordings.

15. Juan Ramos – Blue Dunes [exclusive]

Berlin’s own Juan Ramos, of Discodromo’s infamous queer party Cocktail D’Amore and one half of GreenVision, lands on our station with an exclusive new track called “Blue Dunes”, a perfectly crafted house tune for your next car rides.

16. MLiR – “Radion (Until We Meet Again, My Furry Friend)” [exclusive]

With “Radion (Until We Meet Again, My Furry Friend)”, MLiR,
the incredible Barcelona-based Swedish musical collective fronted by Marco Gegenheimer and Einar Christoffersson, tackles the difficult topic of having lost someone so beloved and hairy, that in the darkest of nights you can still hear the distant barking of your little buddy. RIP.

Written and performed by Einar Christoffersson and Marco Gegenheimer.

17. JKriv – Say Wut (Rework)

This sublime rework “Say Wut” comes from our beloved Brooklyn-based producer, DJ, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, co-head of Razor-N-Tape Records JKriv. It’s a smooth and breezy beauty, ideal for driving down a coastal highway with the windows down. Pure class!

18. Dylan Moon – Song For Jerry

We couldn’t think of a better way to close our new “Late Summer” compilation Vol. 9 than with “Song For Jerry” from LA-based artist Dylan Moon. A beauty of a tune, “Song For Jerry” is taken from his recently released superb debut album “Only the Blues”, an album ornate with so many musical ideas to express that it teeters between ecstasy and anxiety. It’s now yours for free, courtesy of RVNG Intl.

Boston duo Soul Clap are back with their second self-titled album that has been four years in the making. Our first taste from the upcoming record comes in the form of “Shine (This Is It)”, a piano-driven house anthem featuring legendary vocalist Nona Hendryx, a founding member of the group Labelle. Speaking about the album, Charles Levine, one half of the duo, said: “it digs deep into our funky souls and turns our wildest dreams into sound. If ‘EFUNK’ [their first album] was an attempt to create a blueprint using our past inspirations, then “Soul Clap” is the beautiful skyscraper, standing tall as it looks to the future.” The album will drop on October 14th on on !K7 Records/Crew Love.

The single “Shine (This Is It)” comes backed with a pair of remixes from Erodiscotique, a collaboration between Dimitri From Paris and DJ Rocca. You can grab a free download of Erodiscotique’s instrumental version of “Shine (This Is It)” below. Classy!
