John Talabot – S.O.P.

Talabot’s on form.

He’s teamed up again with Pional under their Lost Scripts moniker and released a two track EP on his very own Hivern Discs. We spoke about the Afro house-inspired ‘A.F.K.’ t’other day, and now we’re treated to the A-side ‘S.O.P.’. It’s a re-work of the Clive Owen-starring TV show ‘The Knick’ and it sounds menacing. In a good way.

On the remix front he’s the man behind both remixes for Berlin based duo Sfire’s ‘Sfire3’. You can listen to the ‘Warehouse Dub’ version here, or the ‘Tribalist Rework’ below. It’s a mesmerising number:

And if that wasn’t enough, he’s been commandeered by Phonica to provide the latest instalment in their mix series. Over an hour and a half’s worth of music what makes JT tick…


Jamie xx – Loud Places (John Talabot’s Loud Synths Reconstruction)

If there is such a thing as a banker of a remix, it’s John Talabot on Jamie xx:

JT’s “Loud Synths Reconstruction” of ‘Loud Places’ is coming out on a Young Turks 12” soon and it’ll sit nicely alongside your copy (we know you’ve got one) of ‘In Colour’.

William Onyeabor vs Hot Chip – Atomic Bomb (John Talabot remix)

Like a party where all your favourite people turn up:

First you had William Onyeabor, the Nigerian electro-funk artist brought to a new audience by a Luaka Bop compilation a couple of years’ back. Then you had Hot Chip, doing a cover of Onyeabor’s ‘Atomic Bomb’ last year. And finally, look who’s shown up, it’s John Talabot with a remix of Hot Chips’s cover, all in time for a Record Store Day release*. That’s some tune/party.

Whilst we’re here, you may remember another track from the covers album…

*The Soundcloud says it’s for RSD in 2018 but we have a hunch it might be an April Fool’s day gag…

John Talabot – Bicep Remixes

JT’s producing bangers for fun right now…

You thought we meant Justin Timberlake didn’t you? Heathens. Anyway, John Talabot’s followed up his superb Pional remix with not one but two remixes for the latest Bicep release and they are both EXCELLENT. It’s rolling tech house of the kind JT (careful…) is world-beating at right now. We will be as ‘down the front’ as it’s possible to be on 8th November for his Hivern Discs showcase.

Daniel Avery & John Talabot Mixes

We’re going to take to the longer form for this post, with two mixes from two of our favourites.

Firstly, John Talabot’s closing set from Melt! 2014. Melt! has long been one of Human Drizzle’s favourite European festivals; great atmosphere, good size and a brilliant combination of crowd-pleasing bands, and cutting-edge DJs.

Talabot’s set is a departure from his usual sound – anyone expecting a load of this will be a touch disappointed. Instead, following on from Tale Of Us, the Catalonian produced two hours of hypnotic techno…

Yesterday also saw the emergence of Daniel Avery’s FACT mix. Released ahead of his first Divided Love night at Fabric on August 15, the mix is a trademark blend of soundscapes and thumping beats.

The official video for the brilliant ‘Knowing We’ll Be Here’ also appeared online yesterday – definitely worth checking out…

So, plenty here to get you through the remainder of Tuesday.

Pional – It’s All Over (John Talabot’s Stormbreak Refix)

Quick one for you.

Ahead of the release (finally) of Pional’s mighty ‘It’s All Over’ on 4th August, Hivern Discs have lobbed out the John Talabot refix. Guess what? It’s great!

And here’s a rip of the original, because you’re/it’s worth it:

John Talabot – Without You

Our second most anticipated night on this horizon (after YOU KNOW WHAT) is this Hivern Discs showcase at Corsica that’s doubling up as the launch party for Spanish wizard John Talabot’s DJ Kicks compilation. He’s joined by longtime collaborator Pional and HD fave Fort Romeau, amongst others.

To whet our collective appetites even more, he’s lobbed out an exclusive track from the mix, put together whilst on the road. It’s meandering in the best possible way:

23rd November, put it in your diary.

Peaking Lights – Beautiful Son (John Talabot’s Acetate Dub)

John Talabot’s working his magic again, this time remixing ‘Beautiful Son’ by the married US couple that is Peaking Lights. This is a gentle amble, but it packs some feeling. It will be out on February 18th on Mexican Summer.

John Talabot & Pional – Braves

Anyone partial to a bit of long distance running? This one may be for you.

Spanish top dog of twenty twelve John Talabot has teamed up once again with Pional to produce a piece of music written specifically as the theme tune for the ‘Maraton Divina Pastora De Valencia’, the annual marathon in Valencia. Talabot claims it was written in a similar vein to “something epic like Eye Of The Tiger” – within seconds of listening you can see why.

Born out of a pulsating heartbeat, there’s a driving force behind this tune that should be perfect to inspire those both in their training up to the event and to those who are on their last legs during race time. We hear the song is going to be played during the painful stretch of the course that’s known as ‘The Wall’, where competitors’ loved ones can show their support. And even if you prefer the comfort of your armchair to your lycra, it’s definitely worth checking out, this tune’s got a great beat.

Why not make your first steps, stretch off those fingers of yours and click the free download here. It might make the pain all the more bearable…
