LOCAL TALK

Felipe Gordon dives deep into the Local Talk vault and selected his favourite tracks for a proper rework.

First up we got two stalwarts of the house scene, Kyodai and Fish Go Deep.
Kyodai's 'Breaking' needs little introduction, the track is an anthem and got massive support from Kerri Chandler to Laurent Garnier and is still played to this day in clubs.
Felipe puts his spin on the track, a Latin Jazz Rework that is destined to become a classic in its own right.

Fish Go Deep made their debut on Local Talk with 'Off Script' back in 2016, it's a pure goosebumps track, dubby techno-soul at its finest.
Felipe adds his twist with plenty of swing and clever drum programming.

House head, soul man and jazz aficionado Envee is back on Local Talk with 'Gotta Work' featuring Nick Sincklair on vocals.

Packed to the rafters with high quality deep and soulful house, “Gotta Work” has both inflections of both vintage US garage and the uplifting sound of modern house. Trev, a producer bringing some of the freshest sounds in broken beat delivers two versions, both with ultra-deep bass and wonky time signatures.
Local Talk can do know wrong!

Luke Fono

4Real Feat. BB James - Inc. Crackazat Remix

Luke Fono makes quite an entrance on Local Talk with 4Real, featuring vocalist BB. James.

The song features a garage swing in its unstoppable rhythm and melting-wax chords, it's almost impossible not to smile and sing along when a track brings this kind of vocal melody and positive vibe expertly pieced-together.
You definitely can hear its soulfulness bleed through the track, an impressive achievement and well worth a listen.

Local Talk favourite Crackazat makes a welcome return and delivers a remix that includes all his trademarks, a bouncy groove, stabs and jazzy melodies worthy of a keyboard wizard.
It's effortlessly musical and delicate at the same time.

Riddim Research Lab

Dopewise

DJ Neet & Gordon Brown Jr strikes back with their second release on Local Talk, the follow-up to their "Breaking Dub" release which we here thought was absolutely amazing!

They are continuing on the same route, creating their own unique twist on dub and adding an homage to the early downbeat creations on Ninja Tune.

Blunted beats decorate "Dopewise", setting things alight with its dubbed out vox and headnoddingly powerful breakbeat. Timpani fills and the odd scratchy guitar tape echo fatten up the arrangement good and proper - fyra in the house!

"Searching For Gold" showcase the duo's space and melodic dub with a smash of heavy analogue bass and melodic mood-enhancing brilliance which falls somewhere between the psychedelic roots of Irie Mona and the dubwise brilliance of On-U. Presha! 


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Continuing their permanent spot in my record bag for a third month running, the newest Riddim Research Lab 7" explores the act's unique dubwise sound further still; dropping baggy breakbeats and an acid house swagger into proceedings for a crossover hit with maximum potential!

Breaking Dub

DJ Neet & Gordon Brown Jr strike back with their second release "Breaking Dub", a follow-up to their debut album "Research Program #1", heavily inspired by deep roots and reggae, released in 2017.

What makes this release special is the cover version of the classic Kyodai track "Breaking", released on Local Talk back in 2012.While the original is built around heavy live drums, hands in the air piano chords and packs a lot of energy, this version slow things down and creates an hypnotic vibe laced with a punky-reggae b-line, reverberated strings and chops plus a bit of echo-drenched vox floating away in the background. Pretty mega if you ask us; and would be great to see a DJ utilize both versions with a crazy turnaround between house and dub..!!
