With Sam Sparro being one of those vocalists we would gladly pay top dollar to see sing the phonebook and Daft Punk's already-billion-times-over-rem ixed/ covered "Get Lucky" firmly planted as one of the jammiest jams of the year, having the two entities join forces would of course end up something special. Sparro's cover of the track accomplishes that and more, his soulful divo pipes and a sleek, four-on-the-floor disco-synth arrangement managing to sit hand and hand with the original as a primary go-to feel-good source for not only the heatwave season lying just around the [...]
This past weekend, London indie folk trio Daughter visit the BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge to cover what many are calling the song of the year so far, Daft Punk’s comeback single 'Get Lucky.' Elena Tosca and co, deliver a gloomy, lethargic and soaring, but yet keeping that enchanting chorus intact. Seriously, if Daughter wanted to be cover band they could, their covers these past few months have been incredible. Stream it out. Daughters debut album ' If You Leave ' hits U.S. stores, physically and digitally today via Glassnote Records. Bonus: Check out [...]
La rueda de versiones y remezclas de Get Lucky , el nuevo single de Daft Punk, ha comenzado. La versión ensoñadora de los británicos Daughter y el remix disco de M-Rock están entre los intentos más acertados. Sam Sparro y Landis también se apuntan a la fiebre.
Here's an awesome cover of Daft Punk 's recently released "Get Lucky" from an old favorite of mine, Sam Sparro . If anyone was to cover this song, I'm happy it was him. One could argue this is an even better version - not what he re-arranged technically on Daft Punk's part but I personally prefer his vocals over Pharrell's (no offense P). Sam Sparro - Get Lucky [...]
Todos querem um pedaço do novo single dos Daft Punk . A música mais ouvida de sempre no Spotify, acaba de receber uma cover do australiano Sam Sparro , que decidiu brincar com " Get Lucky ", que conta com contribuições de Pharrell Williams e Nile Rodgers na guitarra. Sparro inclui os seus característicos vocais com vibrato sussurrados e uma produção que reduz o tempo do ritmo original e desliza sem atrito sobre linhas de baixo e sintetizadores de filiação disco.

Eternal dancing. Or in other words, the Italians Do It Better's labelboss Mike Simonetti has remixed Sam Sparro.
Show choices for the 1st of December: ► Punch Brothers bring their memorable bluegrass music to the Luckman Fine Arts Complex at Cal State L.A.. The Milk Carton Kids — the L.A. duo of Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan, recently signed to Anti- Records — open. ► Karl Wallinger [pictured] and World Party return to L.A. for a date at the Troubadour in support of April's release of the five-disc retrospective, "Arkeology."

As November rains its way into December, the Bay Area does its part in the War on Christmas with the onset of our annual secular holiday concert season. Relive that scene in My So-Called Life where Rayanne went flyering drunk in the school parking lot when Toad the Wet Sprocket play not one but two [...]
So, right now there’s a competition going-on on Beatport , a reMix competition. I know, I know, it;s enough to make you stockpile food and lock yourself in until it blows over, but this one seems to be going alright. The track in question is ElectroPop crooner Sam Sparro ’s The Shallow End, from his Return To Paradise album. Apparently the remix-competition-entering-tal entless-idiot-masses don’t consider Sam Sparro ‘hype’ enough to be all over this, which kinda’ just proves how shallow and uninspired serial reMix competition entrants are. So what we have is an altogether more intelligent class [...]
Celebrating a month full of creepy mustaches couldn't pair any better than with a nod to erotic fiction. Shades of Grey is nothing short of powerful, due in part to Sam Sparro 's soulful crooning. Sparro' s sound reminds you of early Prince washed in modern day dance synths. His original version of Shades of Grey is a ballad of pain and truth, and his falsettos will make you reach for the sky. When you do what you do Your gonna hurt somebody, Hurt somebody, hurt somebody [...]

Inquisitive by nature, and relentless in generating standard-bearer styled results.. America’s heavyweight production answer to Piers Morgan continues his creative thought process through these selections of bar-raising statements and quality controlled harvests. Sam Sparro and The Presets are but a mere insight into what Plastic Plates has served up on this blustery and winter-touched morning.

For this morning's mix, we're wishing you a very happy nu disco Thanksgiving with SlothBoogie's guestmix from a Plastic Plates show back in February of this year. SlothBoogie, both a blog and a DJing team based out of the UK, present some of the best from the likes of GLOVES, Oliver , Sam Sparro, The Magician , Kolombo, and a multitude of other multi-talented starlets out there doing the do. We don't know about you, but we're thinking this is going to be good and groovy to slap on the speakers while basting your turkey. [...]
We're big fans of Plastic Plates here at La.Ga.Sta. A few days ago we featured his remix of The Presets' new single "Promises" (check it out here ) and now he's back at it again with another remix. This time he turns Sam Sparro's gorgeous, epic ballad "Shades Of Grey" into a groovy, funky dancefloor filler. That's the way we like it! This remix will be featured on Sam Sparro's new digital edition of his latest album "Return To Paradise", which drops [...]
