On June 30th, Baio, aka Vampire Weekend’s bassist Chris Baio, will drop his second solo album “Man Of The World” on Glassnote, which follows 2015’s debut LP “The Names”. According to the man himself, the new album is “partially about being trapped in my own head, obsessing about things it was too late to change, feeling afraid and guilty and alone. It’s also my attempt to document a certain sense of loss that felt both intensely personal and like part of a larger collective experience many were going through at once.” Here’s “DANGEROUE ANAMAL”, another new track from the record. It’s a slow-burn beauty.

Filled with sun-kissed vibes and a feeling of longing, the track “Don’t Fight Fate” brings us closer to summer. As he says, “‘Don’t Fight Fate’ is my attempt at a late-summer love song.

As he says: “I’ve always loved dancing-some of my earliest life memories involve dancing around my family’s dining room table to ‘Thriller’ when I was little.

Yeah, it’s time to party! La.Ga.Sta. is once again driving up north. For our second “Sunburn” party in Thessaloniki, Greece we invited two of our favorite producers, Vampire Weekend’s bassist Chris Baio, who crafts his own brand of euphoric, tropical-flavored house under his Baio moniker and our beloved Greek electronic musician K.BHTA.

New York’s Chris Baio, who’s currently based in London, is a passionate lover of dance music with eclectic taste and no allegiance to genre. He used to ran a radio station and threw basement shows and DJ’s parties at Columbia University in New York, and now he delivers solid dance tunes under his DJ name, Baio. He already wowed us with his EPs “Sunburn” (Greco-Roman), “Mira” (Future Classic) and “On&On&On&On”/”Missive” (Club Mod), while offered dancefloor-ready remixes for Cults, Broken Bells, Lane 8, and New Navy, amongst others. Right before the release of his highly anticipated debut solo album, set to drop soon on Glassnote Records, Baio is coming for the first time in Greece to extend this summer to eternity.

Greek electronic artist K.BHTA (formerly of the legendary Stereo Nova) needs no introduction. We’ve been following him for ages and we’re so excited for his appearance at our “Sunburn” party. K.BHTA is coming to throw down a special DJ set to celebrate the release of his new brand-single “Monochrome”, the first taste of his forthcoming eighth solo album, which will arrive this fall via EMI. Bring it on!

La.Ga.Sta. presents ::
Friday 8 May 2015 @ Cantina Tropicana (Egnatia 31), 22:00 pm
Baio, K.BHTA, Elias, Nikochatz, La.Ga.Sta. DJs
