The next release on Toy Tonics comes from Sam Ruffillo, an Italian producer and DJ based in Bologna. He draws inspiration from genres such as jazz, afro funk, soul and disco while his style is somewhere between deep, lounge and colorful house music. For his debut release for the label, a four-tracker called “Sport House”, Sam Ruffillo delivers an uptempo disco-infused house record for daytime fun. After sending his demos to the label, Toy Tonics boss Kapote joined him in the studio and brought NYC vocalist Kosmo Kint with him. They re-arranged Sam’s tunes, added some hot vocals and the result is four deep and funky jazz house tunes, recorded with a lot of real instruments. Get your fill of the EPs lead single “Ride My Bike” above, and ride with us.

The “Sport House” EP drops on July 10th via Toy Tonics. Pre-order it here.

After dropping “Love Is All We Share” back in May, Melbourne’s Cut Copy have shared their superb new single “Cold Water”. Arriving alongside the track is the announcement of the four-piece’s sixth studio album “Freeze, Melt”, the follow-up to their incredible 2017 album “Haiku From Zero”, which will drop on August 21 via Cutters Records/The Orchard.

Speaking about “Cold Water”, frontman Dan Whitford says: “After extensive touring on our last album, ‘Cold Water’ was one of the first new songs to appear. I’d moved to Copenhagen and had been listening to a lot more ambient and instrumental electronic music and as a result ‘Cold Water’ felt quite different to songs we’d made in the past. It was less dance, but more atmospheric. Also the subject matter explores love in today’s context, where the climate and fate of the planet are becoming increasingly uncertain. Once we’d finished it, it felt like we’d placed a marker in the ground, guiding us in a new musical direction.”

London-based producer/musician Kelly Lee Owens has shared a beautifully shot video for her new single “On”, from her forthcoming album “Inner Song”. The track “On” is a rustling electro-pop glimmer that gives way to yo-yo synths and a tough-as-nails techno backbeat. It’s the alpha and omega of the Kelly Lee Owens experience, reflective of her ability to contain sonic and emotional multitudes within just one song. Shot on the Norwegian coastline, its accompanying video sees Kelly collaborating once again with Kasper Häggström, who also directed her “Throwing Lines” video. Like the song, it tells the story of a breakup.

The album “Inner Song” arrives on August 28th via Smalltown Supersound. Pre-order it here.

Premiere | Cantor: “Recurrent (Alexander Robotnick Remix)”

We introduced you to California based producer, musician, and DJ Cantor when we shared a top notch rework of his track “Hannet’s Dream” by Modular Project back in April. Now he’s back with hi great new EP “Convergence” on his own label Underground Pacific, after delivering some quality tunes on labels such as Correspondant, Trafico Music and Motordiscs. The “Convergence” EP is an emblematic rendering of Cantor’s attitude in sonic form – a sampling from his consciousness. Four tracks, three originals, and one remix, influenced by new wave and post punk, the record presents auditory concepts through which to explore the fundamentals of Cantor’s music: distortions, psychedelia, romanticism, and sonic cheerfulness.

With the original track “Recurrent” being simply majestic, today we are excited to premiere the track’s acid remix by the one and only Alexander Robotnick, who infuses the tune with his own character offering to the clubbers a mesmerizing atmospheric dance-floor trip. We love the repetitive arpeggiator motives, the hi-hats, and the strong beat. It’s one of those tunes that when you listen to, you close your eyes and you feel your body moving. Blast the track above, exclusively on LAGASTA.

Cantor’s “Convergence” EP drops on June 22nd via Underground Pacific. The EP’s vinyl edition is carefully tended featuring a unique contribution of the Italian artist Fabio Baggio (artbajo). Pre-order it here.

Live At Robert Johnson is on fire and so is Davis as he releases his third EP via our favorite label. Davis Genuino from São Paulo is more than a producer and a DJ; he’s a founding member of the ODD queer warehouse-party collective, which is an artistic endeavor that helped transform the creative landscape of his hometown and set ideas in motion. He also runs the label “In Their Feelings” which is the synonym to innovation and freshness. In his new six-track EP “Dance Peralta”, Davis surely hits on the motifs and distinctive dynamics for which LARJ can always be trusted upon, as he dusts off his TR-808, Juno, MS-20, and gets firmly into his musical stride for six electroid tracks.

The record’s B-side amazing first track “Fissura na Neblina” is premiering here on LAGASTA today and it takes just one hearing for your sensations to wake up. The trippy melody is the perfect one for our beloved rides alongside the old school beats with the new school vibe, the analog synth soundscapes, and the electro basslines. And, yes, the synths are so creatively detuned! Listen to the track above and enjoy this beautiful ride! Stay focused on the inspiring vocal samples’ message.

Davis’ “Dance Peralta” EP will drop on June 19th via Live At Robert Johnson.

Kasper Bjørke: “Venetian Blinds (Panthera Krause Remix)”

Following the release of “Nothing Gold Can Stay” (Part A) EP, Copenhagen-based producer Kasper Bjørke just dropped the second batch of remixes of tracks from his recent double EP. The new “Nothing Gold Can Stay” (Part B) EP features stellar reworks by the likes of Panthera Krause, Kasper Marott, Cooper Saver, Perel, and Bawrut. One of our favourite cuts from the release is the great interpretation of “Venetian Blinds” by Leipzig-based producer and Riotvan co-founder Panthera Krause.

Speaking about Panthera Krause’s remix, Kasper Bjørke says: “I have been playing Panthera Krause´s music in my DJ sets for a long time and love his playful spirit and anthem melodies in his production work. Venetian Blinds in my original version is a slow burning rave track but I knew Panthera Krause could bring a party atmosphere into his mix and he has transformed it into a genuine piece of pure peaktime joy with a sharp arpeggio baseline and fun 80s stabs which reminds me of Pump of The Volume!”

The “Nothing Gold Can Stay” Remixes (Part B) is out now via hfn music. Get it here.
