With this EP, Local Talk is giddily introducing the world to their latest signing: Milanese trio Jaxx Madicine. Made up of experienced producers Turbojazz and Parker Madicine with jazz-funk keys-man Veez O, the Italian outfit revels in delivering loose, soulful and life-affirming fare that draws inspiration from the likes of Kaidi Tatham, the Mizell Brothers and dusty, boogie-influenced deep house. As you'd expect, all three tracks are musically expansive. For dancefloor rotation, it's a straight choice between the jazzy, jammed-out keys, squeezable synth bass and shuffling deep house beats of "Surround Seas" and the broken house/jazz-funk fusion of piano-laden opener "Montreux". That said, "Innerlude" - a sparkling chunk of sunrise-friendly analogue warmth reminiscent of Nu Guinea or Mystic Jungle Tribe, is also superb.
