Combining disco-influenced grooves with addictive pop melodies, the new record is a fine collection of club anthems and torch tracks, which follows their 2012 debut LP “Kinky Dramas & Magic Stories” on Gomma Records. Here’s the video for the record’s first single “Terminal One”.

Max Skiba: “Shanghouse”

It’s been ages since we heard something new from Polish producer Max Skiba, also known as one half of The KDMS alongside disco queen Kathy Diamond. But now he’s back in such fine form, delivering a piano-driven, disco-infused house jam called “Shanghouse” on Prins Thomas’ acclaimed label Internasjonal. The tune clocks in at nearly seven minutes, but we can’t get enough of it. Deliciously infectious and warm, “Shanghouse” is sure to brighten up anyone’s day.

The “Shanghouse” EP, which comes complete with a remix by Victor Rosado and a rework of “Kosakot” by Prins Thomas, is out now digitally via Internasjonal. Buy it here.

The KDMS: “Wonderman”

La.Ga.Sta.: Best of 2011

December 30th, 2011

Artwork: Yannis Dragasakis

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!
