About this item
When it comes to creating atmospheric soundscapes, rhythm and melodies Vick Lavender is a true master. "Shifting Gears", the debut release for Local Talk is a lesson in deep and soulful house music, rich in organic instrumentation and sure to please fans of that original Prescription sound a la Ron Trent & Chez Damier.
Opening track "Shifting Gears" is as authentic slice of deep, tribal house as one could hope for. Rich with jazzy instrumentation, a marching & bouncing percussion section and cavenously low bass. It'll bring back hazy memories of hedonism for old frequenters of Sankey's Redlight club night, also Development at Mint Lounge but also newer nights light Rhythm Section down in London.
"Here In Spirit Sid" is built around a crazed, stuttered rhythm with pure jazz spirit inbedding into this one as a whole manner of UK broken beat tropes converge on that radioactive centre groove.
