Ear To The Ground: Local Talk – 13 Years Later Pt1

Unlucky for some but not for us as Local Talk celebrate that well known milestone of thirteen years, with a collection of top class productions from some previous label collaborators as well as some new and very welcome faces to the Stockholm imprint.

This isn’t so much of a review as it is a shout to everyone take a listen to what are nine top quality productions across part one of this two part project. Adding to my lazy journalism (if you can even call it that), I have nicked some of the release notes to shed some light on what to expect. However, who better to introduce the release than label heads Matts and Tooli themselves –

“As always, we try and aim for a wide spectrum of styles and you’ll hear everything from classic house, deep house, soulful house, Detroit(ish) house, broken etc from some of our fave producers….”

And the line up of producers is something else. Not leaving anyone out, Soul Renegades, Shaka, Alex Attias & Sohan Wilson, Nico Lahs, Laroye, ManooZ, Envee, Dan Tenor-City & Tom Funk and Rawson & Jackson all deliver as you would expect, and make this one proper House session of the highest order.

With part two to follow in April, check out their Bandcamp page now to get your copy of part one and wet your appetite for the next instalment. Thirteen years, whatever the reason, I am very pleased this project came to fruition.
