‘Lagos’ Released Today

29 Nov

Lagos, a collaboration between producers Radius and Leo123, releases its self-titled debut album on November 29, 2011, on Eliot Lipp’s “progressively minded beat music imprint” (Beatport) Old Tacoma Records. The music on Lagos undoubtedly reflects the individual origins of both Radius and LEO123 – from Chicago and Mexico City respectively.

Taking many of their inspirations from 70′s Dub recordings and 80′s house music, Lagos also harnesses the pair’s musical expansion as a duo from Chicago, where they first met.   The result is an expansive and focused sound that proudly continues the tradition of pioneering music born is one of the world’s greatest cities.

Stream and download the single “(your thoughts)” below and make sure to pick up the full EP on iTunes.
