Back in September, L.A.-based cosmic disco trio Music Go Music gave us the first taste of their forthcoming second album “Impressions” by sharing a damn fine track “Love Is All I Can Hear”. Now, they’re back with their second single “People All Over The World”, a deliciously funky track with some serious ’70s vibes. It’s so groovy and uplifting. You can now grab it for free below.

Music Go Music’s new album “Impressions”, the follow-up to 2009′s debut full-length “Expressions”, will drop early next year. The single “People All Over The World” is out now via Thousand Tongues.

Guess who’s back? After a nearly-four-year hiatus, Los Angeles cosmic disco group Music Go Music have—out of nowhere—dropped a brand new single, called “Love Is All I Can Hear”. The track finds Music Go Music staying true to their love of ’70s disco and pop. And it’s so damn catchy. Well worth the long wait.

“Love Is All I Can Hear” is the first taste from the trio’s upcoming second album “Impressions”, which follows 2009′s debut full-length “Expressions” that also included the epic nine-minute disco jam “Warm In The Shadows”. Can’t wait to hear more.

1. THE XX
The xx

Κάτω από μια γέφυρα στο νότιο Λονδίνο βρήκαμε δύο Χ και ανακαλύψαμε το νέο ήχο της πόλης. Αν το La.Ga.Sta. ήταν συγκρότημα θα ήταν οι The xx.

2. THE WHITEST BOY ALIVE
Rules

Το πιο λευκό αγόρι του κόσμου έφτασε στο πρατήριο και πριν βάλουμε λουκέτο μας έσωσε (κυριολεκτικά) από την οικονομική κρίση. Με έναν όρο. Να ακολουθήσουμε νέους κανόνες: 1. Nα γίνουμε πιο λευκοί 2. Να γίνουμε πιο ζωντανοί. 3. Nα ξαναγίνουμε παιδιά. Αν δεν τους τηρήσεις, θα γίνεις μαύρη. Ουπς, έγινες!

3. YEAH YEAH YEAHS
It’s Blitz!

H Karen O δεν αστειεύεται κι αυτό το αμάξι που αντί για ρόδες έχει ντισκομπάλες σαρώνει τους δρόμους της Νέας Υόρκης μέχρι να πεις yeah! Μας έβαλε με το έτσι θέλω στη θέση του συνοδηγού, μας πήρε το κεφάλι και νιώσαμε more than ZERO. Και δεν χρειάστηκε ποτέ να βάλουμε ζώνη. Ε, yeah, λοιπόν!

jj n° 2

Όσο και να ψάξεις οδηγό δεν θα βρεις, αλλά σε αυτό το αυτοκίνητο ακούς ψυθίρους στο πίσω κάθισμα και μελωδίες να έρχονται απο το πορτ μπαγκάζ. Κι αν η διαδρομή είναι μικρή, κανένα πρόβλημα. Στην επόμενη πινακίδα που θα δεις θα γράφει πάλι jj…

5. AU REVOIR SIMONE
Still Night, Still Light

Η Simone έχασε τον δρόμο της, στάθμευσε έξω από το πρατήριο και ζήτησε βοήθεια. Τον δρόμο της έδειξε ένας ψηλός άντρας με ατίθαση καρδιά. Εκείνη πάτησε GAS και εξαφανίστηκε στη χαμένη λεωφόρο. Θα την δείτε να πρωταγωνιστεί στην επόμενη ταινία του David Lynch…

6. MIIKE SNOW
Miike Snow

Την πατήσεις. Δεν είναι αμάξι. Είναι το ζωό που κρύβεις μέσα σου. Και πεινάει. Θα το ταϊσεις χιόνι. Θα το φορέσεις μάσκα. Θα το πας βόλτα στο δάσος. Και θα το μάθεις να παίζει synths. Όταν μεγαλώσει, θα δεις, θα βγάλει κέρατα. Μεγαλύτερα από τα δικά σου!

7. PET SHOP BOYS
Yes

Τελευταία λες συνέχεια ναι και τα βλέπεις όλα κύβους. Το κρεβάτι σου. Τα ρούχα που φοράς. Το φωτιστικό δαπέδου. Τον γκόμενο σου. Τους λογαριασμούς. Το κινητό σου. Την μπάλα που κάνεις γυμναστική. Ακόμη και το αμάξι που οδηγείς. Σκάσε και οδήγα. Διαφορετικά, θα πέσει να σε πλακώσει.

8. LA ROUX
La Roux

Μια φράτζα δεν πάει ποτέ στράφι. Για άλλον την άφησες και σε άλλον τελικά μοιάζει. Όχι, στη La Roux, αλλά στη φυλή Νάβι του Avatar! Ετσι, εξηγείται που πλέον δεν βάζεις το κλειδί για να πάρει μπρος το αμάξι, αλλά “συνδέεις” την φράτζα στην εξάτμιση και κάνεις το La Toyota δικό σου για πάντα. Vrooommm!

9. CFCF
Continent

H disco είναι μεγάλη και τους χωράει όλους. Ακόμη κι έναν πωλητή στα American Apparel που όταν δεν διπλώνει κάλτσες και εσώρουχα, χάνεται στo σύμπαν του Blade Runner με το πάτημα ενός πλήκτρου. Το La.Ga.Sta. μεγάλωσε και τους χωράει όλους. Πόσο μάλλον έναν ταλαντούχο Καναδό που δεν πιάνει χώρο. Ούτε αυτός, ούτε η “Ήπειρος” του.

10. PHOENIX
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

Ψιτ, το ξέρεις; Αν ο Mozart ζούσε στον 21ο αιώνα δεν θα έγραφε συμφωνίες. Γιατί; Δεν θα είχε χρόνο. Θα οδηγούσε ένα αμάξι τύπου Phoenix που όταν κορνάρει παίζει κιθάρα, όταν γκαζώνει παίζει πλήκτρα και όταν στρίβει παίζει ντραμς. Φαντάσου, δηλαδή, πως θα ακούγεται η εξάτμιση!

Interview: VILLA

DATE:

CATEGORIES:

REACTIONS: 1

Last Gas Station loves VILLA, three guerillas from Belgium (Fredo, Thang & Seba ) who have been very active as dj & producers over the last 10 years. Lately, VILLA have been causing a commotion! Their “Diva edits” on Mindless Boogie and their great remixes on The Golden Filter’s “Thunderbird” and Music Go Music’s “Warm in the Shadows” set the dancefloor ablaze. Even Erol Alkan plays VILLA remixes! In view of their first dj set in Athens at the Galaxy Bar on Sunday 13th December gaves us an interview about music, the Balearic sound and cars…

Why did you choose this name?

I was reading about Ibiza and found out that Villa is the nickname the inhabitants use for Ibiza Town. So I thought – wow Villa – what a great word! Sounds exotic and sexy. But most important it’s just a powerful word that fits good to the music we want to make.

What’s the secret for a successful remix?

Don’t know. We’re not successful. But the moment you start a new remix is always exciting. We just need to get inspired by something in the original. Something we can fall in love with like a synth line, a verse or even better, the front lady!

What’s your opinion about the Balearic movement?

It surprises us when people talk about music in terms of movements. In our musical universe all different kinds of music come together in one big blend. We have always been digging crates to find good classics, discover new music. Rock, House, Italo, Hip Hop, Rave… there are so many influences that inspire us. We don’t think Balearic is a sound, nor a movement. It is an open-minded attitude towards all kinds of music. So, yes, in that way you could describe us Balearic.

How would you describe your sound?

For ten years now, people have been asking us to describe our sound. We have never found a good answer. Probably eclectic is the word.

You love to make people dance. What kind of music makes you dance?

There are so many kinds… We’re always dancing. As long as it’s sexy.

Is downloading a threat to music?

Not at all, from the approach of music itself. Every artist wants his music to reach as many people as possible. Since digitalizing music and the use of CDJ’s/Serato in clubland, the spreading of dance music is enormous. If you check our own course, it’s amazing how our “Diva edits” led a life on its own.

What is your favourite destination?

Pussy….euhm…Destination unknown!

Can you recommend 5 albums that everybody should listen to?

Lots of. A brand new Belgian rockband called The Hickey Underworld is amazing. “Everything” by Mulate Astatke and “Expressions” by Music Go Music. Jackson and His Computerband is a smash! And off course classics like Paul McCartney & The Wings – “Band on the Run”, and The Alan Parson Project – “Eye in the Sky”.

What are your future plans?

Going to bed. But before that, we’re busy on a remix for Dan Le Sac and Scroobius Pip on Rob Da Bank’s label Sunday Best, waiting for our c90’s remix to come out, working on our first EP, listening to our mix on Ministry of Sound radio, working on another crazy Mindless Boogie edit, doing some chorographical moves for the new live show of Calvin Harris, working on the soundtrack of “The deepest throat”, feeding the monks, debugging our hair, writing haiku’s and dj-ing in Athens!

Tell us a song you love to listen to while driving your car…

“Drive” by The Cars.
