SOULPHICTION

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.






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.
