FACT Mix 315: John Talabot

FACT Mix 315: John Talabot

Playing tracks by

Phase 6, Mental, Chateau Marmont, Warpaint, Rekid and more.

John Talabot sees in his debut album, ƒin, with a storming mix.

It’s hard to put a tag on Talabot’s music. The Barcelona-based producer has released a steady stream of underground house records since 2009; they’re as deep as they come but they’re certainly not deep house, and despite all those gloriously uplifting riffs, there’s nothing big room about them. Often, they seem like pop records stretched to breaking point; each melody or key shift teased out for maximum dramatic effect. God knows really, but they murder a dancefloor.

ƒin is a remarkable debut album that takes the late night inner-city vibes of producers like Burial and Convextion but splashes gold paint over those midnight blues and greys. The result is one of the saddest, but also most inspiring records of 2012 so far.

Talabot’s FACT mix doesn’t feature much of his own material but there’s enough Beautiful Swimmers, Omar-S, Jus Ed and Blondes in that tracklist for you to know you’re in more than good hands.

Amazing. I have seen him play a few times and he has this shy and melancholic vibe over him that makes his sets all the more interesting...A real originator.

Ne Noya just doesn't sound as good slowed down so much...

Any mix with Dauwd's Acireams and Bicep's remix of Blondes' Water is halfway to greatness.
