XLR8R recently launched XLR8R+ with unreleased tracks by SIT (Cristi Cons & Vlad Caia), Huxley Anne, and Vril. Our goal is to provide a thoughtful and exclusive music offering to the unrelenting diggers and dedicated music lovers upon whom this scene is built. By subscribing, you will support the artists and XLR8R, allowing us to continue what we’ve been doing for 25 years: finding, curating, and serving the best electronic music out there while remaining independent. You can sign up here, with details of our second offering set to be announced soon.
As a token of appreciation to those who have already subscribed, we’ve added an extra track from Vincent Casanova, titled “Lugana Lines.”
Casanova has been producing and DJing electronic records since 2000. His first vinyl release arrived in 2004 on New York’s Sifted Recordings; since then, he’s compiled a sizeable discography of four full-lengths and many more EP and tracks on Kindisch, Majumasi, Verbreiten, ODT, Unknown, and others. While maintaining a warm and melodic feel, often with a strong bassline and dreamy elements, his productions range from house and techno to more breakbeat cuts with fragmented vocals and elements of pop. He is also beginning to DJ in clubs across Europe, after refining his skills playing at smaller venues and after-parties in New York City, just a few hours from his birthplace of Connecticut.
“Lugana Lines” is a deep ride through after-hours house with ‘80s synth elements. Many of you will recognize it from Casanova’s 2016 XLR8R podcast; he wrote the track exclusively for the mix, and it became a standout moment in an exceptionally smooth contribution to the series.
You can subscribe to XLR8R+ here, and the track will be delivered to your inbox within 48 hours—while you can stream it now via the player below, along with the other three X+ tracks.
