Greek producer and DJ NTEIBINT, aka George Bakalakos, is having quite a year! After releasing his first EP “Everybody Knows A Dave” on Bang Gang 12” back in April, not to mention his superb tune “Quincy Bay” on La.Ga.Sta.’s latest compilation, we’re so glad to see that he’s getting more and more attention. His new single “Time”, which was recently released via Kitsuné, is another fine example of his production skills. It also comes backed with some tasty remixes by Kitsuné’s co-founder Gildas Loaëc, Belgium electronic upstarts The Subs, Jensen Interceptor (ex-Light Year) and last but not least Italian producer Fabrizio Mammarella. Check out two of our favorites remixes of “Time” below, and read our interview with NTEIBINT here. This guy will go places.

01. A.N.D.Y. – The Room (DJ Version)
Belgian producer A.N.D.Y. (formerly of Mustang) never ceases to amaze us with his skills. For this compilation he offers us a special DJ version of his brand new and unreleased track “The Room”, specially made for La.Ga.Sta. This tropical-flavored disco tune has summer written all over it, such a perfect start for our compilation. Feel the vibes.
02. Pharao Black Magic – Happy Kalimba
Here’s a super tasty feel-good tune from our favorite Swiss duo Pharao Black Magic. This new and unreleased track, called “Happy Kalimba”, is now available exclusively as part of our compilation and it will definitely put you in the right mood. We had this track on repeat in our car stereo for the past weeks, while driving around Greece. La.Ga.Sta. is surely happy!
03. Panama – Magic
All the way to Panama. More magic from Sydney-based band Panama, who recently signed to the ever-excellent Future Classic. Their brilliant debut single “Magic” was recorded in LA with Eric Broucek (DFA Records), and it’s now available for free download, courtesy of Future Classic. Expect nothing but pure Magic from Panama in the near future.
04. NTEIBINT – Quincy Bay
Greek talented producer NTEIBINT, aka George Bakalakos, who has already released the great EP “Everybody Knows A Dave” on Bang Gang 12”, he’s now ready to drop his new single “Time” on September 24th via Kitsuné. Until then, here’s his new and unreleased groovy track “Quincy Bay”, specially made for La.Ga.Sta. And yes, it feels so good!
05. Chordashian – Sea Crest
We love Brooklyn’s Chordashian, the duo of Felix Feygin and Michael Banks. Their amazing summery tune “Sea Crest”, taken from the excellent debut EP “Don’t Wait Up”, is now available for free download, courtesy of Mullet Records. Yes, summer is still here!
06. Worst Friends – Neve’s For None (Faux Pas Remix)
Melbourne electronic musician Tim Shiel, Faux Pas, who is also a member of the touring band for Gotye, recently dropped a great collection of his remixes from the last five years (2007-2012).

07. Rolla Scape – Praise Love
We are so excited to share with you a brand new and unreleased track from Rolla Scape, the side-project of our favorite Greek electronic artist K.BHTA. “Praise Love” is a brilliant slow soulful jam. Perfect for a late-night ride. Hop on!
08. Lane 8 – The Voice
Another brand new and unreleased track, this time from rising San Francisco’s producer Lane 8. As you may already know, we dig all his stuff. He was kind enough to offer us exclusively for this compilation a superb track, called “The Voice”, which is quite different from his previous offerings yet it still succeeds in delivering quality tunes. This track uses samples from Susanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner”.
09. Montevideo – Horses (Discotexas Dub)
It’s time to boogie. Discotexas bosses Moullinex, Xinobi and Mr. Mitsuhirato made a great nine-minute remix of Montevideo first single “Horses”, from their upcoming Joakim-produced debut album, “Personal Space”, due out in September. The dub version of this remix is available now exclusively on our compilation. It will knock your socks off!
10. In Flagranti – Humdrum
In Flagranti need no further introduction. Their excellent track “Humdrum” is taken from the “Dissimilated by Products from In Flagranti” (Volume 2), featuring all released tracks on Juno Download between March and April 2012. It’s now available for free download for the first time, exclusively on our compilation. What a jam!
11. Satin Jackets feat. Eric Cozier – Hollywood (Live Jam Version)
German nu disco producer Tim Bernhardt, aka Satin Jackets made a smooth live jam version of his brilliant laid-back jam, “Hollywood” for our compilation. The track was released a few months ago on his brand new label Glam Jam Artists and features melodic vocals by group member Eric Cozier. Sit back and enjoy!
12. Matthias Zimmermann – Fez
This is such an amazing track from German newcomer Matthias Zimmermann. “Fez” is taken from his debut four-track EP “Isla Dub” on Sound Pellegrino. Great vibes. Stuck on repeat!
13. Charles Murdoch – Ahama
Brisbane-based producer Charles Murdoch is our best-kept secret. He has already produced some tracks under the name Charlie Why and he’s also a member of the band Mitzi. His solo work sounds great. Here is his lush tune “Ahama” that has a dreamy vibe to it. Love at first listen!
14. Mindless Boogie – My Hero (Kid Who Edit)
The closing track on our late summer compilation is a stunning rework of Tina Turner’s “We Don’t Need Another Hero” by the always amazing Kid Who. It was released back in 2010 on Mindless Boogie, but never as a free download until now, courtesy of Smile Recordings. Drive slow.
Shout out to all the artists and labels that contributed to the making of this compilation.

Everybody knows a Dave, you should get to know this one too. Talented Greek producer NTEIBINT makes thing his own way. After a few more remixes, he eventually released his first EP “Everybody Knows A Dave” on Bang Gang 12”, and the result was definitely worth the wait. That’s why we took a ride with him and talked about his background, music and future plans. Read our interview below and grab his brand new jam “Jackpot” for free, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta. Don’t forget to be on the look out for exciting new releases from this guy.
La.Ga.Sta.: Who is NTEIBINT?
NTEIBINT: He’s Dave! Or David – If you try to spell NTEIBINT in Greek. It all started with a simple wordplay done by me and ath1281, the man responsible for the visual identity of the project.
What is your background? Tell us how you first got into electronic music?
I’m a classical trained musician that got bored of studying and fell in love with synth. My first experience with electronic music was through Laurent Garnier’s “Unreasonable Behaviour”, a milestone album for me.
Your debut EP “Everybody Knows A Dave” on Bang Gang 12” sounds quite different from your previous stuff (more balearic, disco), any particular reason for that?
NTEIBINT started with a remix I did for Jamie Lidell on Warp Records. After that I did a lot of remixes and bootlegs. I was trying to craft my own sound, with some hits and misses on the way. It all led naturally to this mid-tempo kind of slowdance disco, that you hear on my first EP as NTEIBINT.
What is your source of inspiration?
Everyday life, mostly good food and good friends. I don’t like to talk music and sometimes I don’t even listen to music for small periods of time.
How you would describe your work?
It’s mostly disco with a slow pace, live instruments and happy accidents.
Do you prefer producing remixes or original tracks?
I really like remixing and I’m a pretty fast worker in the studio, remixes are stress-free for me. My original tracks take a little bit longer to conclude as I’m the recording artist, mixer and producer, It’s a battle between all those different hats!
How do you think Athens has affected your sound?
Too much noise and too many happy faces at the same time? That’s Athens for me. I live in the suburbs, so I’m not a city kid. I prefer a laid back environment.
What is a piece of equipment you can’t live without and why?
A good set of monitors. You can’t do anything without a good pair of speakers (and electricity).
Which are your favorite tunes at the moment…
Kindness – House
Adamski – I Like It (ATTAR! Remix)
Roundtree – Hit On You (Version Idjut)
Light Year – Moderation (NTEIBINT Remix)
Sleep D – Bacon
Which record would you love to listen if you had a car?
Easy pick and long time favourite late ’80s album “Conscience” by Womack & Womack.
Three things we should know about NTEIBINT…
Cigarettes, music and politics.
What’s next for NTEIBINT?
My second EP is almost ready and I’m looking for a European Label to release it. Expect some balearic mid-tempo moments and feel-good house vibes.
