Vito & Druzzi, the Brooklyn-based house duo of Vito Roccoforte and Gabriel “Druzzi” Andruzzi, best known for being the drummer and multi-instrumentalist of The Rapture, have shared a heavy polyrhythmic rework of Hugh Masekela’s 1984 classic “Don’t Go Lose It Baby”, and it’s a great one! Do yourself a favor a grab the “Don’t Go Hugh” rework for free in all its wav glory. Enjoy the ride!

“When I moved to NYC in the summer of 1999 one of the first shows I saw was Hugh Masekela in Central Park. I wasn’t very familiar with his music (he was playing with Carl Craig who I had come to see) but after his concert I left a life long fan. Watching him live was incredibly inspiring. Man! Could he play a mean cowbell!” – Vito

Brooklyn-based duo Vito & Druzzi, consisting of The Rapture’s Vito Roccoforte and Gabriel “Druzzi” Andruzzi, recently wowed us with their floor-ready house jam “It’s EZ”, featuring veteran vocalist Xavier. While this incredible tune is still on repeat mode on our car stereo, Vito Roccoforte has teamed up once again with NYC-based singer to deliver something special: a sublime edit of Daryl Hall & John Oates’ 1981 classic “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” with Xavier singing along the original track. This dreamy, Balearic dub version of “I Can’t Go For That” has already been receiving well-deserved praise from DJs, and now it’s yours for free exclusively on La.Ga.Sta. It’s easy to lose yourself in its breezy six-plus-minute runtime. Grab the “No Teeth, No Marks” edit below and ride with us.

Here we go. Get your Monday groove on with “Swing That Body”, one of our favorite tracks from Jacques Renault’s long-awaited debut album “Zentrum” that has been on repeat mode for a while now. The track sees the NYC producer and master of disco edits teaming up with Luke Jenner, formerly of The Rapture, for an infectious dancefloor heater. It’s one of the many collaborative tracks on the record which also features guest appearances from The Emperor Machine, Teddy Stuart, one half of A/Jus/Ted, Mark Verbos, and his Runaway partner-in-crime Marcos Cabral. The “Zentrum” LP is out now on the ever-excellent Let’s Play House, which he runs alongside Nik Mercer. It’s definitely worth the wait.
