The Legalize Lambada collective and was mixed by "Your Name". We just got their first LEG001, which has some of the dopest disco cuts we heard in some time!
Your Name is a dj and label owner from Croatia.
His formative years were spent in Pula, a small town on the coast of Istria.
It was the music videos of the early nineties and a progressive local radio station that played a key role in linking him to the culture that would later express his creativity - hip hop.
He spent his teenage years shaping his skills in graffiti drawing, break dancing and dj'ing in his father's garage where he and his friends assembled their first sound system and light show with whatever they could find at the local flea market.
When he moved to Zagreb to attain a degree, it was house music that caught his ear. He soon realised that both house and hip hop are connected to same roots - the black, soulful and groovy sound of the 70' and 80'.
After a few years of digging and mixing he was recognized by Zagreb's finest crews (Ekstrakt and Confusion) and was invited to play at their parties.
Later on, he and a few close friends formed „Legalize Lambada“ , a dj collective that evolved into a vinyl label that revisits forgotten disco jams and saves them from the claws of speculators.
His sets are always a fusion of various styles; from down tempo, gospel and psychedelic soul to boogie, disco, house and techno.
