Thanks to Ghent-based Eskimo Recordings and its new release the summer heat goes on and we can’t help heading to the beach once again. Our car stereo doesn’t stop playing the sun-kissed new track “Swimming” by Australian three-piece Holy Models, the brainchild of Adam Frawley, Mitchell van Kaathoven and Luke McKay. Almost six minutes of pure bliss.

And he’s back! While he’s been a little bit quiet on the release front lately, Rocco Raimundo today dropped his own version of Vienna-based producer and DJ LeSale’s “Before The Night”, a tune lifted from the four-track “Lessons In Luv” EP on Luv Shack Records.
Rocco Raimundo’s take on “Before The Night” is a smooth house jam with bright piano chords that will make you melt. In other words: essential listening. It’s yours for free!

For our 45th “An Edit To Remember” series we have chosen not one rework, but two. Let’s put it this way, in order to get to the golden years, you have to first take a walk on the wild side. Of course we’re talking about Flight Facilities’ first installment “1972 – 1982″ of their excellent decade mixes for Triple J Radio in Australia.
What makes these mixes even more special is that Flight Facilities have asked some of their friends to rework certain selected classic tracks. For their “1972 – 1982″ mix our beloved Rocco Raimundo made a superb edit of Lou Reed’s “Walk On The Wild Side” (which even Lou Reed himself posted on his Facebook page) and Tim Fuchs’ delivered a delicious edit of David Bowie’s “Golden Years”.
Grab your keys and jump in the driver’s seat, you now have plenty of things to remember…
In case you missed it, download Flight Facilities’ decade mix “1972-1982″ here.

Every Saturday we take a ride down the memory lane and fill up our tanks with great edits that we’ll always love. From time to time, we ask some of our favorite producers to join the ride by choosing their favorite edit on our “An Edit To Remember” series. Today, edit maestro Rocco Raimundo shares with us Joey Negro’s edit of The Clash’s classic “Rock the Casbah”, entitled “Casbah Breakdown”, released on Better Days Records in 2009.
“When asked to choose my favorite edit of all time, I honestly didn’t know what to say, as they’re way too many to choose from. In the end, I had to go with the one that popped into my head instantly, and that is Joey Negro’s edit of ‘Rock The Casbah’,” Rocco Raimundo tells La.Ga.Sta. “What can you say about it? It’s perfect. It builds, and builds, and when it drops, it still blows my mind. The sax gives me goosebumps, and we all know that when music gives you goosebumps, it’s most certainly a good thing. I play it whenever I get the chance, and it gets people going each and every time. I hope you love it as much as I do!”.
Here is “An Edit To Remember”, as chosen by Rocco Raimundo. Give it a spin below and take a ride down to Silver City…
