This latest twelve on Local Talk maintains the standards set so far this year thanks to some stellar contributions from Deymare and Will Madams, and further demonstrates label boss Mad Mats' innate talent for seeking out a cosmopolitan blend of rising house talent. Polish producer Tanzlife is at the helm, clearly impressing Mad Mats with some Soundcloud friendly edits of the likes of Jim Blake, for two tracks of loose limbed deep house heavy on the samples and jacking rhythms. Lead track "Heart Attack" is undeniably fun, splaying a well chosen and equally well chopped soul vocal over a bouncing, 90s stab heavy refrain, whilst "Cold Fire" shows a deeper side to Tanzlife's palette of sounds as well as a real dexterity for synth pattern manipulation.
