Human Drizzle: The Playlist, January 2017

January’s edition of our monthly playlist is bursting with a wide range of talent from all across the globe.

There’s a strong presence from excellent South London labels Church, No Bad Days, Rhythm Section AND Chaos In The CBD’s new In Dust We Trust label. Disco belters on Razor-N-Tape Records, Eglo Records and The Black Madonna’s new label We Still Believe, an ode to 90’s rave from Australian producer Francis Inferno Orchestra and a tasty addition to London pals SlothBoogie’s (fairly) new premieres feature from G. Markus.

And one for the diaries. 4th March we’re having a party. Lock it in.

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…

Lost Scripts – A.F.K.

John Talabot and Pional have teamed up once again as Lost Scripts to release a vinyl-only two track EP out soon on Talabot’s Hivern Discs. ‘A.F.K’ is the B-side and it’s a wonderful slice of Afro-inspired house soaked in flitting synth and percussive patterns.

Stay tuned for the A-side, S.O.P.

Cleveland – Atlas

This earworm’s been floating around the net for a few weeks now. Penned by the Luxembourg-based (not Ohio) producer Cleveland, ‘Atlas’ is a slow-building, tense affair and is sounding right at home amongst label-mates Round and Marvin & Guy on John Talabot’s Hivern Discs.

If you’ve got more time on your hands, the mix he recently did for Data Transmission is a really good one to knuckle down to. The tune that kicks in around the 40 minute mark is something to behold, details unknown but due for release later this year, apparently. Free Download on this one.

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.

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.

Blanc 1 – It’s All Over

Hold your horses. Before you all start mouthing off about how Blanc 1 is your fave new artist, you should know that he/she isn’t real! ‘It’s All Over’ is the first in a new series of uncredited tracks from Spanish wizard John Talabot’s Hivern Discs label. Using our powers of deduction (and the label website) one can reasonably assume it’s one of JT himself, Teengirl Fantasy, Aster, TB, New Jackson or Pional. You decide…

And here’s our favourite from the imprint’s previous series of releases, ‘Invitation to Love’ by the aforementioned TB. Strains of a Twin Peaks classic in there:
