German label Freeride Millenium will drop its very first compilation, entitled “Freeride Millenium presents Queer Base”, in order to support Queer Base. Talented artists such as Massimiliano Pagliara, Zombies in Miami, Younger Than Me, Soulphiction, Hard Ton, Rotciv, Modular Project, Benjamin Fröhlich and many more serve up a scintillating selection of house, synth, techno, disco and downbeat, and all profits from this release will be directed to Queer Base.

Today we are psyched to premiere one of our favourite track from the compilation, a new track from Milan’s Modular Project, the eclectic Italian duo of Alberto Iovine and Alessandro Fumagalli. With “Denim Jacket”, Modular Project have created an 80s-influenced psychedelic house tune that will get some serious rotations on our car stereo this summer. Just perfect! Blast it above, exclusively on LAGASTA.

Queer Base is an organisation in Vienna that offers social and legal counseling to LGBTQI+ refugees who arrive in Austria, including providing help with court cases, finding housing, community events, organising German lessons, HIV/STI testing, and more. Further details can be found here.

The 17-track “Freeride Millenium presents Queer Base” compilation will drop on July 30th.

Premiere | Satin Jackets: “Sassa And Back”

Having established himself as one of the biggest names on the nu-disco scene with his 2016 superb debut album “Panorama Pacifico”, Tim Bernhardt, aka Satin Jackets, cemented that success with his 2019 follow-up “Solar Nights” that saw the prolific German producer broaden his sound, collaborating with songwriters and vocalists from around the world to stunning effect.

Returning to the studio in 2020, Bernhardt has been inspired to return to his instrumental roots, the lessons learnt from the past few years applied to the dreamy, laid-back electronic music that he first made his name with and which can now be heard on his great new EP “Hidden Treasures” on Eskimo Recordings. The record’s four tracks are 100% undiluted and unfiltered Satin Jackets, imbued from start to finish with the chilled vibes and charm of his debut, the technical skill and musicality of its follow up, and crucially the confidence of a producer who in 2020 is at the top of his game.

“I’ll always enjoy working with great vocalists,” affirms Tim. “But for me instrumental tracks have this magic, this power that unfolds in their own unique way. Unbound by any kind of song structure or decisive meaning I can design them in my own way and focus more on the mood and the feeling. That’s why I decided to continue on that path with this EP, and the result is four tracks that tell a story about a particular chapter of my life. At the same time they’re open enough for the listener to insert their own story into it.

Today we are delighted to premiere the EPs closer “Sassa And Back”, a reflective slice of heavenly disco, underpinned by elegant strings that tease us throughout the track before stirring into something truly transcendent yet at the same time quietly understated. We’d expect nothing less from Satin Jackets. Get your fill of “Sassa And Back” and ride with us.

Satin Jackets’ “Hidden Treasures” EP arrives on July 17th via Eskimo Recordings.

Mexico is on fire and one massive collaboration is ready to do some serious dancefloor damage. Cani, from our beloved Zombies in Miami, and Young Drums, the Salamanca originated talented duo, gave birth to Haunted Strasse & Young Drums, and their debut release will be out on their label Haunted Space Records. A 4-track EP with the finest, powerful electro cuts and we couldn’t expect less from their creators. Both Cani and Young Drums are what we call hybrid; they combine different kinds of music, making themselves sound deep and dark but vibrating and bright at the same time.

Today we are excited to premiere the EP’s first smashing track, “Connection”. Making its entry with an industrial, strong beat, you sense early the tune’s dark electro-and electrifying- atmosphere, with arpeggiated synths playing a prominent role. Its harsh, EBM style sound gets softened by a gentler synth drifting melody, which as the end approaches enters the acid zone. The awkward echoed vocals match perfectly with the rest elements of this awesome, dynamic track. It’s gonna be every DJ’s peak-time choice. Listen to “Connection” and enjoy the ride!

Haunted Strasse & Young Drums debut EP “Connection” drops on July 3 via Haunted Space Records. Pre-order it here.

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.

The record includes three original club-ready tracks, and a remix of “Talk” by DFA stalwart Juan MacLean. Today, we’re psyched to premiere the EPs title track, a serious percussive dancefloor slammer and all round absolute banger of a tune. Fasten your seatbelt and ride with us!

You think about Norway and what first comes to mind is its breathtaking landscapes. Well, that’s not our case though. Exceptional disco soundscapes is what primarily pops into our heads and rising Norwegian producer Even Hymer Gillebo, aka Cavego, is one of the causes Now, he returns to Eskimo Recordings with his gorgeous second EP “Dovregubben” and he’s not just maintaining what he has built with his previous one, 2018’s debut EP “Gudbrandsdalen”, establishing himself as one of the most amazing and talented artists in the Nordic cosmic disco world, but he’s heading one step further; he reassures us that disco music is in the right hands and we are so happy about that.

The “Dovregubben” EP is inspired by the Norwegian culture with the title itself being a reference from Henrik Ibsen’s famous work “Peer Gynt”. The record is an immensely colourful tribute to the 80’s dancefloor; 4 tracks of shimmering, uplifting electronic music that taste like honey in our ears.

Today we are delighted to premiere the EPs new track “Huldra”, a perfect slice of cosmic disco, named after a seductive Scandinavian forest spirit. What captures you from the very first seconds is the ethereal transparent wordless chants alongside the playful, dancy beat, blending with a vast array of sublime synth riffage. You just get bewitched by this great tune and you can’t get enough of it; it’s perfect for our favorite rides, for the sunset by the beach and for that special night in the club with you dancing carefree. Listen to the track above and enjoy the ride!
