  2. Fox Tooth (Peaceys Jump Up remix) (8:24)
Review: This year marks two decades since Martin 'Atjazz' Iveson put out his first 12" single. That he continues to deliver high-grade, soul-flecked deep house is testament not only to his skills, but his staying power. With this EP, he had little to do but put his feet up, as Kaytronic and Peacey took it in turns to rework last year's "Fox Tooth". The former kicks things off, combining heavy analogue bass, tech-tinged beats (think classic Swag) and creepy, late night textures. Peacey takes a different approach, teasing out the inherent sweetness of Iveson' synth work on a bouncy revision that makes excellent use of an extended breakdown.

  1. Doctor Feelgood (4:42)
  2. Slope (5:14)
  3. Slope (Lay-Far upbeat version) (5:44)
Review: Mad Mats and Tooli's Local Talk is still going strong. The Stockholm label now taps In-Beat-Ween Music main man Alexander Lay Far, who appeared last year on the label with his Communication EP. The Slope sees him collaborate with the legendary Ashley Beedle of X-Press 2 and Darren Morris. First up is "Doctor Feelgood" with its '70s inspired production complete with funk guitar, swinging live drumming and an infectiously funky synth bass. The Slope" is a more downbeat affair for chill out moments, a deep soul funk number with swirling Rhodes, dreamy xylophones and rich analogue strings drawing comparisons to Roy Ayers RAMP project. "Lay Far's Upbeat Version" does exactly what it does on the cover, injecting a funky breakbeat into said track, making it more dancefloor friendly but still retaining all its soulful glory.

Deep House
  1. Somewhere Else
  2. Somewhere Else (AD Bourke Bittersweet version)
  3. Somewhere Else (HADE 94 Thumpin rework)
Review: Ben Jacobs ends 2014 the way he started it, with a dose of thrillingly sweet and melodious house on Mad Mats and Tooli's Local Talk imprint. "Somewhere Else" is a typically positive affair, with waves of ear-pleasing music box melodies, cheery chords and hazy vocal samples riding a swinging US garage groove. It's the kind of record you stick on to chase the blues away; it's almost impossible not to smile at its jaunty positivity. Ad Bourke tries a different tack on his rework, opting for a deeper, more melancholic sound and some hushed, DJ Sprinkles style beats. Even better is Hade 94's version, which adds a little analogue style grit and a booming, warehouse-friendly deep house feel.

Noth Ing (1-sided 12")
Cat: LT 055. Rel: 22 Dec 14
Deep House
  1. Noth Ing
Review: HNNY seems to save his best for Local Talk. His previous three EPs for the Swedish imprint - "For The Very First Time", "Yearning" and, of course, "Tears" - have all become staples of deep house sets over the past 18 months. Happily, "Noth-ing" is another cracker - a single-sided salvo shot through with the sort of breezy sweetness we've come to expect from the Swede. The track itself fuses bubbling flutes and impassioned vocal samples with typically fluid deep house beats, a languid (but heavy) bassline and just the right amount of cosseting pads. It's perhaps a little looser than some of his productions, but that's no bad thing.

Review: Soon, Alexander Lay-Far will release his sophomore album, How I Communicate, an all-star affair featuring hook-ups with all manner of soulful house and broken beat luminaries. This taster 12" features a sneak peak at what to expect, and is crammed full of musically expansive, organic dancefloor treats. Amongst the highlights you'll find a sumptuous chunk of starry soulful house created in partnership with Magic Number, a deliciously deep and woozy cut created with the Restless Soul Band, and a decidedly cosmic broken beat jam featuring Bristol-based producer Sean McCabe. Oh, and "Slops", a disco-tinged chunk of positivity featuring the combined talents of Ashley Beedle and Darren Morris. Superb stuff, all told.

  6. Side 2 Side (I Just) (4:37)
Review: With Alexander Lay Far's latest album, How I Communicate, the epitome of a beast at 17 tracks long, Local Talk wisely chose to split up the vinyl edition into two double packs. The first one dropped back in January and we now get to savour the second helping of the best cuts from the Russian house casual's refined second album. Commencing with the Detroitian-sounding "Submerging," the six tracks here demonstrate Lay Far's talents lay beyond the confines of deep house with the wondrous Mark De Clive Lowe collaboration "Jump Higher" a towering highlight. Taking full advantage of the New Zealander's talents behind the keys, this cut finds Lay Far dabbling in a vibrant broken beat style!

  1. Lock & Rock (Mr Scruff Absolut remix) (6:42)
  2. Like The First Time (feat Magic Numbers - Ge-ology remix) (7:32)
Review: Mad Mats and Tooli's Local Talk imprint is back after a great release last time by Irish legends Fish Go Deep. This time around its the turn of Moscow's Alexander Lay-Far who after releasing two volumes of How I Communicate already this year, now releases the remixes of his dusty hip-hop influenced deep house. On the A side "Lock & Rock" gets a re-rub by the one and only Mr Scruff, whose dusty and low slung dope beat turns the track into a perfect Sunday afternoon accompaniment to a misspent youth in Berlin this summer. The vibes continue on the B side with NYC's Ge-Ology remixing "Like The First Time" doing his urban/high tech soul crossover so well once again: this one's pretty special we must say.

Hot Medusa (12")

Deep House
  1. Hot Medusa (Kai Alce remix) (5:49)
  2. Purple Dust (6:09)
  3. Hot Medusa (6:54)
  4. Hot Medusa (Kai Alce dub) (6:21)
Review: Given that he released his first record under the Munk moniker way back in 2000, it would be fair to describe Mathias Modika as a "veteran". The Gomma founder has released a wide variety of music under the alias over the years, much of it with a jazzy or sleazy bent. He's at it again here, with title track "Hot Medusa" offering a 95 BPM stroll through hazy, guitar solo-laden downtempo pastures. Even better is "Purple Haze", which combines bumpin' deep house, woozy chords and notable Todd Edwards influences on a particularly tasty, mid-tempo shuffler. Best of all, though, are Kai Alce's two deep, jazz-house remixes of "Hot Medusa", which blend bossa influences with all manner of tasty musical flourishes.

Isao (12")
Cat: LT 062. Rel: 12 Oct 15
Deep House
  1. Isao (main mix) (8:39)
  2. Isao (DJ Fudge Afrobeat remix) (6:05)
  3. Isao (Jose Marquez remix) (8:36)
Review: As the label matures, Local Talk founders Mad Mats and Tooli are getting a little more adventurous with their A&R policy. This single from veteran Spanish producer Kiki Navarro is a great case in point. While rooted in Osunlade style, globally-focused deep house, "Isao" boasts delicious fluid, Detroit style synthesizer motifs, Atjazz-influenced broken house rhythms, and more than a little Afrobeat bounce to the beats. Jose Marquez's fine remix emphasizes this Afro-Cuban inspiration, playing down the electronics for a more percussive feel. Navarro also provides his own dub, which feels denser and more electronic, whilst retaining the effortless sweetness of the fine original version.
