Whoosah and Naturel invited John Talabot for a special 4hr set at Naturel Beachclub. The weather forecast looks more than good.
John Talabot has become one of the biggest revelations of the last years: He has gone from a complete unknown to one of the biggest electronic hopes in Spain. All thanks to his effusive house tracks in which Moodymann, J Dilla, Chicago house, Disco music and Northern Soul intertwine to produce organic and humane songs, full of life, and that make your hands and heart dance.
Borrowing the name from his school as an alias and a diverse amount of samples for his music, his first compositions brought him to Permanent Vacation. “My Old School”, his debut on the Munich label, gave him instant recognition in the electronic galaxy and James Murphy, Âme and Aeroplane were including his music in their sets. On Hivern, he released the now mythical “Sunshine”, which has become one of the songs of the summer and Philip Sherburne has included the track as one of the best maxis of 2009 on Pitchfork (the website already states he’s one of the biggest names in the current house music scene). In the meantime, he’s been busy doing remixes for bands such as Glasser, Delorean and for producers Zwicker or on Francesco Tristano’s Aufgang project.
John Talabot’ career has just begun but all the signs indicate that we are facing a special artist. He promises to make more music, but everything seems possible for this tireless musical tracker capable of making magic with a bass drum and a sampler.
