Los Angeles-based house producer and DJ Evan Stalker recently signed to Jacques Renault and Marcos Cabral’s, aka Runaway, imprint On The Prowl. His first EP “Parkway” contains three original tracks of forward thinking deep house music and a superb remix by Runaway. The title track sounds perfect for a late-night drive. Give it a spin below. We can certainly expect great things from Evan Stalker in the near future.

Lauer: “Highdimes”

Another excellent release from Phillip Lauer on Gerd Janson’s Running Back label. Following his solid debut LP “Phillips”, which was released back in April, Lauer just dropped a brand new EP, which features two fine reworks of his track “Tentatious” by New York’s Jacques Renault and Marcos Cabral, aka Runaway, and I:Cube. The release also includes the hidden album track “Boringtone”, his very own secret ode to the Café del Mar, and an exclusive track called “Highdimes”. You can now stream the track above. Brilliant!

Such a dope, soulful house remix by Jeremy Glenn. Now our beloved Toronto producer not only works his magic on Runaway man Marcos Cabral’s “Sweet & Sour”, but also wrote the lyrics and sings on this track. Amazing! Out soon on Marcos Cabral’s imprint Hamilton Dance Records.

A few days ago Jeremy Glenn did a great La.Ga.Sta. Mix. Play it again.

La.Ga.Sta.: Best of 2011

La.Ga.Sta. offered its services to many weary travellers once more this year. By “following rivers” they drove “through the green” and found themselves in “English Riviera” only to come back again to our station for another refill.
Taking a Friday drive down this year’s memory lane, we think back on our numerous stops including among others:

Our after-hours, absolutely wicked dj set in the VIP room of Melt! Festival. We might have missed Cut Copy’s performance but we certainly had a blast. Shout out to T.E.E.D., Azari & III, Metronomy, Siriusmo, and Planningtorock for their stunning gigs.

The 15-track La.Ga.Sta. Summer Compilation 2011 with lots of exclusives released in August and downloaded by more than 15.000 vroomers in less than a month. Thank you guys!

The La.Ga.Sta mixtapes by the amazing Drop Out Orchestra, CFCF, Das Moth, Pharao Black Magic, Marius, and Mickey. Much appreciated.

Dancing ‘till we dropped with the Can You Relate? team at their super cool parties in Thessaloniki together with The Magician, Shit Robot, Villa, Moullinex, In Flagranti, Acid Washed, and Stopmakingme.

A huge thanks coming out to all of you who filled up our inbox with tons of tunes and mixes, wish we could post them all. Keep them coming.

It’s always such a great pleasure sharing sounds, words and feelings with all the people we love. We don’t really like making lists since we always forget to include everything we loved through the year. But, by popular demand, our pit stop crew tried to bring the Best of 2011 lists (albums, tracks, remixes, EP’s, video) based on what we played most on our car stereo. It was certainly an amazing year with great releases that gave this station the “gas” it needed to carry on driving. Check out our lists below in no particular order. We don’t have winners or losers in this race only drivers that finally make it to the finish line.

This is the 2011 sound of La.Ga.Sta. Vroooommm!
