Tubojazz

Night Colors EP

Hot on the heels of the Jaxx Madicine remix of Kyoto Jazz Sextet on Local Talk, Tommy 'Tubojazz' Garofalo - goes on a solo adventure once again.

His previous EP "Unbreakable" had equal parts of soul, jazz and funk blended together with a house twist.
The follow-up "Night Colors EP" shows both that and a deeper electronic side.
Opening track 'Two' is a clever number with its changes & sonic wizardry throughout.
Turbojazz makes the perfect blend between house and techno dipped into one big pot of deep Detroit vibes.

Next up is 'The Joint', a track that wears the distinct Turbojazz trademark throughout with its playful keys and sequenced drum programming at full tilt.

Wipe The Needle Featuring Alex Lattimore

Enchanted

Love for the music should be the driving force of any producer and Lee Gomez aka Wipe The Needle clearly shows this with his latest release for Local Talk which is full of both the label's vibrant, organic juices and resplendent with the producer's sunny ethos.

"Enchanted" features Alex Lattimore's soulful vocals together with stunning instrumentation and takes you on journey that goes beyond the house genre, and into searing jazz-funk / disco energy.

Flip it for a North London dub courtesy of Wipe The Needle. It's the kinda track Joe Claussell would drop and tweak to buggery at Body & Soul and keeps you dancing until closing time.




Surprisingly good 12" straight from the solid Local Talk label, this time is Boddhi Satva providing the soundtrack. 
On A side up is the 00s mix of 'Basic Knowledge', a near-epic track, riddled with emotion and deepness, certain to cause more than just a few goosebumps. The key stabs and strings makes this one of the deepest cuts of house we've heard in a minute.

On the flip 'Together' is another elegantly realised stylistic track where all the moving chords are exposed and pushed to the front. A grand tour through the deep-rooted rhythms with a minimal yet spiritual sound. My favourite track by a mile on this ep. 

Last but not least is the 90s mix of 'Basic Knowledge'. It takes all the ingredients from the A side mix and infuses it with more jack, together with the kicks, snares and the swollen bassline.

An absolute killer all round!

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: As said above, absolute killer with a special mention to the very very deep 'Together'. Lessons in deep house available from the man Boddhi Satva. Bravo.

Art Of Tones breaks the all important first album deadlock with a tasty selection of cuts for Local Talk. 

The divine Frenchmen has produced a nothing short of faultless discography of singles and remixes, but has yet to drop a complete artist statement such as this. Set across two parts, and taking his soulful, bumpin', sample-friendly approach laced with funky leads and swinging beats, AOT delves straight into the dance, perfectly encapsulating what the producer is about across two succinct and well sequenced discs. Comparisons could be drawn with Dan Shake, MCDE, Crazy P and Maurice Fulton but these are merely place markers to guide you to the final destination - Art Of Tones rocks the discotheque with his own stance and style and "Unbalanced" competes with some of the best dance music longer players of the last five years! Top marks!


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Hips swinging, elbows out, shoulders rolling! It's that typical Local Talk canter we know and love and it's fighting fit and ready for action.

Soulphiction comes through with a nice n funky four tracks for cult stable Local Talk. Ear-grabbing opening track "Bizzness" starts things off in classic Soulphiction mode with its deliciously bass-heavy funk stomp garnished beautifully by the odd guitar fret-chop. "Cart People" is a fine slice of deep house encompassing some seriously dreamy keyboard and pad presets before packaging it up with a touch of phaze and some simple house riddims.

"Slow Glow" opens side B, bringing warm vibes and great melodies together in a clever way while "Sweet Dreams" concludes with a fathoms deep, Mr Fingers-indebted style with skeletal drum beats, shadow-dwelling vocal and intricate yet subtle sonics. A provocative and sensual way to end the EP and worth the entrance fee alone if you ask me. Top stuff.


Dropping nothing but heat since his debut on Paper Recordings in 2012 (check out his EPs on Intimate Friends and Karakul if you think I'm lying!) NY*AK becomes the latest addition to the Local Talk roster with the "Bound EP". Providing plenty of banger for your buck, the geordie treats us to four tracks, kicking off with the opening track 'Bound', a cut up, soulful disco house slammer. Next up we got "Dancing", a perfect example of Andrew's skill when it comes to slowing down the tempo but still letting the track have enough character to keep you...'dancing'. On the flip we have "See More" which takes you straight to a dark and gritty club with its stuttering chords, tight drums and pulsing bass. Last but not least Andrew teams up with long time collaborator Ian Blevins for 'Sandwiches', a stunning low deep groove for any Theo Parrish or Marcellus Pittman fans out there.

DJ Spinna

TB Or Not TB / Cosmocrank

An unlikely, but nonetheless stimulating diversion here for DJ Spinna on Local Talk. Ditching the soul and funk for two techy, electronically charged warehouse trax that'll find equal favour in one of Timmy Regisford's extended Shelter sessions or smashing out Panorama bar at 4AM in the morning. "TB Or Not TB" skillfully pairs a winding 303 line with crisp, newly harvested beats. An extended trip, the first half of the track works at locking you into its hypnotic grooves before a floaty synthline slowly creeps into the mix along with sharp, glistening melodies, elevating the next half of the track into the upper echelons of deep tech pleasure! Flip for the more subdued, blissed-out, Larry Heard-esque, "Cosmocrank". With its classic bleep-bass preset straight outta Mr. Fingers sound library we get plenty of textured elements slowly converging on the track - sounding a little like a more stripped back version of Ron Trent's Electric Blue series. Basically, both tracks are ace late night workouts and should make a welcome curveball to fans of this producer's already prolific discography.
