Bike Thieves - Laura
Västkransen Records’ first release—Bike Thieves’ “Laura EP”—is out on 12” on April 6th, 2018. Based in Stockholm, Västkransen Records is an offshoot of Gården, an underground open-air party held in an industrial zone of the city since 2014. Featuring DJs like Cinthie, Baba Stiltz, Maya Lourenço and Mount Liberation Unlimited, Gården is attended by a devoted following of dance music heads looking to sweat to classic disco and house.
“Laura EP” introduces Gården residents Bike Thieves—two long-time Stockholm comrades with a penchant for gritty house. The A-side features the duo’s banger “Laura”, along with a funky disco remix by Mount Liberation Unlimited’s Tender T. On the flipside, HK presents a deep tech-house interpretation of “Laura”, the record closing with Bike Thieves’ after hours cut “Jailhouse”.
