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. The result? Organic and humane songs, full of life, that make your hands and heart dance.
His first compositions made of a diverse amount of samples brought him to Permanent Vacation. My Old School, his debut on the Munich label, gave him instant recognition in the electronic galaxy. Not long after James Murphy, Âme and Aeroplane were including his music in their sets. The following year would turn out full of surprises. A blossoming relationship with Permanent Vacation results in a 12″ release with the beautifully acidic song Mathilda’s Dream. Another featured song was a remix by Jacque Renault all leading up to his breakthrough year 2012. The release that left critics, press and fans astonished and can be considered a classic already: Fin. Having received credits from leading magazine such as Groove, Pitchfork, Debug and Resident Advisor, it’s no surprise the album was seen as one of the best records of the year.
