[Premiere] Vito & Druzzi: “Battle Ax”

Brooklyn-based musical/production/DJ duo Vito & Druzzi, aka Vito Roccoforte and Gabriel “Druzzi” Andruzzi, best known for being the drummer and multi-instrumentalist of DFA’s The Rapture, are no newcomers to the world of rhythm and harmony. After dropping a slew of top-notch releases and sublime edits, they’re back with a new EP, entitled “Boom Boom Battle Ax”, which marks the pair’s first record for the newly minted Brooklyn label Earth2Ether. The record features three tracks of maniacally mechanical techno-disco-funk that circumvent belief and challenge expectations.

To make these slightly twisted, back to basics dance floor vibrations, the assiduous duo dug their lonely 808 drum-machine out of the closet and gave it a big hug. The result is an EP made with love, the inspiration that comes with reconnection and an optimistic atavism unburdened by outdated morals. Today, we’re psyched to premiere our favorite track from the EP, “Battle Ax”, a great tune that finds Vito & Druzzi in fine form. Blast it above, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

The “Boom Boom Battle Ax” EP drops on October 18th. Pre-order it here.

The summer vibes keep on coming with Jeffrey Paradise’s brand-new single “Dream With You”, a laid-back, sun-drenched affair featuring vocals from Burkinabe singer Mandjou Koné. The track features live instrumentation influenced by Caribbean and African rhythms whilst still capturing the summery vibe fans have come to know and love. Just perfect for these carefree days of August. The single comes complete with a finely crafted upbeat remix by Boston’s own Bosq that was featured in Poolside’s “Contact High” mixtape a while back.

Speaking about his collaboration with Mandjou Koné, Jeffrey Paradise says: “I met Mandjou after attending an event at Ashkenaz performing arts center in Berkeley where she was performing with famous kora player Karamo Susso. I was wowed by the character and spirit in her voice and had to meet her and hopefully get her to record on the tracks I had been working on. Luckily she was up for it and we recorded vocals in a friend’s studio in Vallejo, California one afternoon and the rest is history.”

Stream the single “Dream With You”, and watch the hazy video for the track, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta. Enjoy the ride.
