The latest release on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space Records comes from Rotterdam’s Antenna, the obsolete machine driven house project of Sasha Renkas and Eline Makker, with their first contribution to the label, a four-tracker called “Primavera”. With a handful of quality releases under their belt already on labels such as Clone Royal Oak and Pinkman, the pair delivers a well-crafted collection of four original tracks, a “meditation on the sensitivity of spring.” Written after an overwhelming in-and-out of body experience in the Austrian countryside, the record is an “homage to nature’s otherworldly portals.” Watch the video for the EPs lead single “Primavera May”, which was directed by Serena Forghieri.

Antenna’s “Primavera” EP drops on September 9th as a limited edition 12” and across digital formats. Pre-order it here.

Dutch producer and multi-instrumentalist Kai Hugo, who recently relocated to Los Angeles, is gearing up for the release of his self-titled debut album on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space Records under his new solo project Palmbomen II.

Recorded during a summer lockdown in his mother’s attic in their hometown of Breda, The Netherlands, the 14-track album is said to have been inspired by the cult ’90s sci-fi show The X-Files.

The final Beats In Space Records release of the year sees Tim Sweeney’s excellent imprint grant Berlin-based DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist Tomasz Switala, aka Guiddo, (who also serves as one half of house duo Manhooker) a debut EP called “Gin ‘n’ Tears”. It’s a superb three-track record of disco-pop beauty and sublime bliss featuring the sultry vocals from Greek singer Georges Perin. The EPs title track is, simply put, a stellar slow jam for late-night rides that “lilts like a disco 45 at 33 rpm.” We couldn’t agree more.

The “Gin ‘n’ Tears” EP is out now on vinyl and digital through Beats In Space Records.

What a ride! Japanese producer Atsushi Yano keeps the good vibes going with “Solid Gold”, a groove-filled tune built around sun-drenched, Afro-funk-inspired rhythms that clocks in at eight minutes, but we can’t get enough of it. “Solid Gold” is taken from his “Chewy Tunes” 12″ on LPH WHITE, the sister label of the ever-excellent Brooklyn-based Let’s Play House, run by Jacques Renault and Nik Mercer. Play it loud.

Greek-born, Milan-based singer/producer Panagiotis Melidis, aka Larry Gus (Greek for “larynx”), who wowed us with last year’s debut LP “Years Not Living” for DFA, kindly offered us this unreleased track called “Human Migration”, another fine example of his talent.

11. Hidden Fees – So What

Brooklyn’s Hidden Fees, the duo of Ivan Berko and Thomas Gluibizzi, recent single “So What”, featuring vocals from Ghost Exits’ Christopher Exits, is one of our favorite tracks of the year so far. We’re delighted to have it as part of this year’s Late Summer Compilation, courtesy of Tim Sweeney’s always on point Beats In Space Records. A solid jam with a timeless feel.

12. Midnight Magic – Psycho For Your Love (Midnight Magic’s 2014 Rework)

Brooklyn-based cosmic disco outfit Midnight Magic never failed to amaze us. For our new compilation, they reworked their track “Psycho For Your Love”, and turn it into a sleazy disco affair that’s quite hard to resist. You can grab a free download of Midnight Magic’s 2014 rework of “Psycho For Your Love”, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

13. Woolfy Vs Projections – Ask (The Smiths Cover)

California-based musicians Simon James and Dan Hastie, aka Woolfy Vs Projections, bring us a pleasant surprise, a perfectly crafted sunny cover of The Smiths’ 1986 classic “Ask” with a Balearic feel. We have already road tested this cover, and it feels so good while driving. Another exclusive track on our compilation. Can’t wait to hear the duo’s new album on Permanent Vacation.

14. COMA – Les Dilettantes (Roosevelt Mix)

This one has been on repeat on our car stereo for the past few months. Cologne’s electronic duo COMA, aka Marius Bubat and Georg Conrad, “Les Dilettantes”, taken from their superb debut LP “In Technicolor” on Kompakt, gets a disco-infused rework by fellow German producer/singer and album collaborator Marius Lauber, aka Roosevelt. Once again, Roosevelt works his magic on “Les Dilettantes”, stretching it out into a gorgeous nearly-eight-minute dancefloor heater. Loved up!

15. Miami Horror – Wild Motion (Pete Herbert Remix)

We couldn’t think of a better way to close our new “Late Summer” compilation Vol 4 than with this classy remix of “Wild Motion”, the recent single from Melbourne-via-LA electro-pop four-piece Miami Horror, by the mighty London-based Pete Herbert. What’s not to love?
