LOCAL TALK

Anthony Nicholson & Mark De Clive-Lowe

Yeah-Yeah / Another Story

Anthony Nicholson aka Miquifaye is deeply rooted in the movement of taking music and art forward in Chicago then presenting it across the globe and around the world. Anthony has a discography that has been one of the most respected and sought after collections in dance music - deep, luxurious and firnly rooted in house music tradition.

Mark, a regular on our shelves, is an artist in constant evolution, always reaching for that next level and new opportunities. A prolific artist across many style he seems the perfect pairing for Anthony.

Together they've created two deep house masterpieces that are up there with some of the biggest and most expansive pieces in the style of early Francois K, Joe Claussell's Instant House and Ron Trent's Future Vision and Electric Blue series - in other words, perfectly drawn sonic canvasses of deep house pleasure! You need this! 


Local Talk deliver the third party of the fantastic album from Soulphiction, whose "24/7 Love Affair" trilogy has been well received here at the shop. Michel Baumann is one of Germany's most respected artists who is also known under the equally successful and iconic alias Jackmate.

"Blueprint" kicks off the final part and sounds incredible - somewhere between Ron Trent and Recloose. It's moody and sexy and flavoured with nice percussion elements and warm organs. "Raw Truck" quickly follows with a squelchy acid workout that's both comedic yet dancefloor-centric in that crazed, jack-track fashion.

"Feelin' Good" urgent drums contrast wonderful against the melancholic piano chords, tapping up that dark, simmering urgency that'd characterize many of Moodymann's finest moments. "Smufin" concludes with a drum palette that would, infact, make Theo himself blush; it's cleverly constructed MPC pattern ushering forward a series of vocal chops and organ stab; who said deep house was dead eh?!

RIYL: Mahogany, Moods & Grooves, Sound Signature, KDJ, Still Music etc.


Local Talk is back again with a fantastic album from Soulphiction who gets deep, down and dirty with this bumping selection of timeless house tracks across 3 pieces of beautifully packaged vinyl...

Dusty grooves and soulful emotion form the foundation of this release, which also takes influence from Jazz, Hip Hop and Afrobeat.

Soulphiction aka Michel Baumann is one of Germany's most respected artists who is also known under the equally successful and iconic alias Jackmate.
This is the third time Soulphiction has featured on Local Talk including his recent single "Beehive". Other labels to have featured Soulphiction tracks and remixes include Lumberjacks in Hell, Rebirth, Pampa and Philpot Records.

A master of both mood and texture, this release showcases the studio wizardry of a true sound-smith.
Chunky percussion with shuffling rhythms form the backbone of the grooves, which are fleshed out with intricate melodies and funky basslines that move mind, body and soul.

Like the tracklist of a J Dilla mixtape, this album flows with a purposeful care combined with a storytelling blend of emotions rarely heard in a house music long player.

Executed to perfect precision, this album is an instant classic and a must-have for home listening along with a club setting.






Peter Major aka Opolopo is an extraordinary producer that barely puts a foot wrong. With releases on prestigious labels such as Quantize Recordings, Z Records & Papa Records, Local Talk have been waiting patiently, cap in hand, for his return to the label.

Opening track "You Can Make It" features the soulful vocals of Pete Simpson and flutters in on a very smooth and sensual palette. The instrumental fits Pete's vocal perfectly, and as the arrangement peaks, we're taking on a dazzling journey.

On the flip there are two versions of "Lamprey Love", a track with expansive warmth and jammed-out riffs, not far from Larry Heard or Chez Damier.

No matter if you choose the Bouncy Mix or the original, Opolopo has done what he does best and offers up some brilliance for house music lovers across the globe.




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.
