LOCAL TALK

CoFlo

Lux (incl. Kaidi Tatham Remix)

    Continuing a run of highly musical releases, Local Talk is proud to present Cody Ferreira aka CoFlo to the label with 'Lux'.

    Joining the dots between house, hi-tech soul and jazz focused synthesizer solos, CoFlo explores a wider range of influences, it's essential.
    On the flip Kaidi Tatham delivers another flawless remix where his exquisite production abilities shine and he shows us why he remains one of our favourite producers out there.

    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. 









    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.






    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.


    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.
