Richard Norris, aka The Time And Space Machine, who has just released his second album “Taste The Lazer”, works his magic on Saint Etienne’s new track “Heading For The Fair”.

It’s taken from the deluxe edition of Saint Etienne’s new album, “Words And Music”, their first in seven years. The release also includes reworks by Erol Alkan, The 2 Bears, The Golden Filter, Kisses, Beat Connection, Summer Camp, amongst others. Out on May 21 via Universal.

The Golden Filter: “Kill Me” [John Talabot's Killed in Room 161 Refix] [mp3]
Spanish producer John Talabot, who recently released his stunning debut album “ƒin”, delivers another quality remix, this time for The Golden Filter’s “Kill Me”, from last year’s record “Syndromes”. This remix is called “Killed in Room 161″ remix and sounds much better than the original track. It’s yours for free.
DATE: September 12th, 2011
New York-based duo The Golden Filter have teamed up with Norwegian director Kristoffer Borgli to create a enigmatic new short film called “Syndromes”, that is “both achingly beautiful and tragic in equal measures”. The soundtrack contains 6 new songs, the first new material from The Golden Filter since 2010′s fantastic debut album, “Voluspa”, and it will be released on October 10th via the band’s new label Perfectly Isolated. Pre-order here and watch the trailer below.

Last Gas Station has called Rory Phillips. One of our favourite DJs and producers is coming to Thessaloniki this Friday (8/10) at Art House as a special guest DJ of the very popular “Can You Relate?” parties. Before dancing to his mind-blowing remixes (we had an amazing time with him in Athens) he talked to us about his trademark telephone/headphone, his remixes, London, music and he revealed his secret wish to become a travel agent. Don’t you dare quit djing Rory!
You’ve been busy this year remixing The Golden Filter, Scissor Sisters, Crystal Castles…have you done anything else recently we may hear about this Friday at Art House in Thessaloniki?
It actually feels like I haven’t done much this year because I’ve only had a couple of things released but there’s actually about 5 remixes in limbo right now thanks to the frustrating way labels seem to work, they are all completed and accepted, just waiting to be released.
Can you imagine yourself going back and using headphones instead of your telephone?
I can’t imagine it. The thing is with the telephone, i started using it not as gimmick, rather that design wise it’s really handy when you are djing, and i’ve used one ever since my first DJ set over 10 years ago. I’ve used headphones when going back to back with friends but it definitely feels strange.
If something bad happened to you whom would you call?
What do you love and hate most in London?
I love the sheer range of music that passes through the city, the creativity and how the arts are easily accessible, i hate that it can be incredibly fickle.
What has influenced you most in the past years?
What turns you on?
I love the sound of breaking glass.
If you weren’t making music, what do you think you’d be doing?
I’m giving it all up soon to become a travel agent.
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Where are your favourite places to play?
Dublin, Osaka & Philadelphia are always fantastic. I’ve had a great time every time I’ve played Athens so hopefully this will stretch to Thessaloniki.
What is missing from the dance music scene nowadays?
Mystique and discovery.
Which is your favourite destination?
Anywhere by train.
