Review: French producer Ludowic Llorca has been around longer than most, having released his first 12" for F Communications way back in 1995. On this chugging, hip-wigglin' two-tracker for Defected offshoot DFTD, you can tell. Both versions of "My Love" sound like early Murk productions (unsurprising, given the Miami references in the mix titles), with a touch of Twilo-period Tenaglia thrown in for good measure. Llorca clearly has some love for the original sound, as both versions - all fuzzy synths, chugging late night grooves, bold organs, simmering strings and bubbling, rolling bass - sound authentic. They're both also very good, with the Miami Dub standing out.

Review: Paying tribute to house music's most timeless aspects, "Elephants" will find favour with anyone who's much as sniffed a DJ Gregory or John Ciafone record. Positive Balearic fusion with just a touch of emotion in the minor keys, it's an instant pleaser for ravers or chillers. Elsewhere we enjoy a slab of Womack-style soul over cascading strings ("Myself, My Body") and get instantly sedated by the dreamy cosmicity of "The Right Moment". Arty on dudes!

Review: La Debandade is the follow up to Art of Tones' EP "The World As I Live It", released on Room With A View last year to much critical and popular acclaim. All three tracks offer Ludovic's take on the classic 90s US house sound that inspired to him to begin producing, and these classic influences are engrained deep in the three originals on offer: "About Time" combines a thick, bumping bassline with a diva vocal and jiving Wurlitzer, while "Dolces" combines a feel good Paradise Garage vibe with Balearic accents. La Debandade offers the most contemporary feel, with a soulful house track filled with Gallic melodic charm. The EP is rounded off with "Bonus Beats" versions of the first two tracks, stripped back for DJ use, and a reprise of La Debandade which offers a more laid back version of the driving original.

Review: French legend Ludovic Llorca is back under the Art Of Tones guise for the always impressive Local Talk. Acid soul funk? You bet! Take a listen to I "Just Can't (Get Over It)" and you'll believe there is such a thing. On the flip, the smooth and soulful groove continues on "Dirty Stories" which has an undeniably French touch about it, with good use wonky synths, emotive strings and SP1200 style vocal cut ups. Deepness in the vein of Pepe Braddock or Chateau Flight.

Review: Having not bothered with the Art of Tones alias much over the last few years, Ludowic Llorca has now dropped two singles in the space of two weeks. Following his Murk-influenced "Your Love" for Defected offshoot DFTD, here he delivers some deeper fare for Local Talk. With its righteous vocal, slack snares, rubbery live bass and tumbling Rhodes chords, "The Same Thing" sounds like classic Detroit deep house given the Llorca twist - Piranhahead in Paris, perhaps. It's excellent, as is the accompanying Dub, which beefs up the beats and loops up choice sections of the original vocal. The bonus cuts are pretty tasty, too, with the classic proto house-meets-baggy US garage vibe of "I Don't Think That's Music" catching the ear.

The Rainbow Song (S3A Broken STL remix) - (5:42) 119 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Following a surprise outing on House of Disco, Ludovic Llorca returns to Local Talk for the first time since 2013's much played The Same Thing EP. In its' original form, The Rainbow Song is a near perfect example of Llorca's particular brand of deep house - all stretched-out chords, a bustling bassline, tough but shuffling beats, cute cowbells and bluesy vocal samples. It sounds like an underground summer anthem in waiting. There's more of a funk-flecked urgency about the excellent S3A Broken STL Remix, which introduces further vocal samples and, arguably, an even more addictive groove. Certainly, it feels a little wilder than the original, whilst retaining Llorca's unique deep house perspective.

Review: Ever since their first releases on 20:20 Vision back in 2005, Art Of Tones have steadily grown into purveyors of fine deep house, and you can rest assured that you'll always receive nothing but quality from them. As of late, they've been more closely associated to London's House Of Disco Records, an imprint onto which they return to herein with three smackers, starting with the disco-laced groove that is "Devil The Difference", a soulful house joint with nothing but vibes spilling from every corner. On the flip, "Boogie With Billy" adopts a similar formula to a more electronic rhythm that recalls material from the mighty 80's imprint SAM, while the 'future dub' of "Devil The Difference" twists the original into a deeper, more heady cut for the deep hours...

Review: Ludovic Llorca is clearly a man on a mission. Having largely disappeared from view for a couple of years, this is amazingly his third Art of Tones release in as many weeks. It's also arguably the strongest of the trio. "Take Me Higher" is a soulful, energetic and effortlessly groovy fusion on gospel, classic US deep house and contemporary British bass bottom-end. It's one of those tunes that's nigh on impossible to dislike. "Damped", a foray into fluid, late night deepness, is almost as good. The good news is that there are tons of Dubs and remixes to get stuck into, too, with Lauer's deliciously old skool, but lovingly fluid "Bert Remix" being the best of the bunch.

Review: The unstoppable Lazy Days imprint shoots to kill with this latest nugget from two of its regular sharp-shooters, Art Of Tones and Lay Far. The former, Ludowic Llorca has made appearances on everything from Local Talk to Belgium's We Play House label so it's safe to say that he knows a thing or two about house music! "Koniokola" is a chord-heavy pipebomb with beautiful swirls of delay and balearic charm, a truly effective piece for DJ action. Lay Far, who has also appeared on Local Talk and other quality outlets such as 4 Lux, delivers the perfectly dusty and cowbell-heavy "Coming Back". True house beauties with a magic touch.

Review: Fred Everything's Lazy Days label is a veritable institution by this stage in the game, and it's no surprise to see a label of such stature reaching out to an artist as highly regarded as Atjazz. Martin Iveson, as he's also known, ditches the alias here but the mood is consistent with his reputation. "Leave Me Here" is a jazz-soaked beauty in its original form and when Jimpster takes the controls for a remix. On the flip comes Art Of Tones, whose "Koniokola" gets not one but two versions from Fred Everything. Both the remix and "re dub" deal in masterful tech house from a true champion of the genre.

Review: There's a notable inclusion in the list of producers contributing to Editorial's latest red-hot collection of floor-friendly reworks. Vastly experienced house producer Art of Tones turns re-editor on "Bootyshaker", a sublime, loose-limbed interpretation of a Red Greg-championed disco-soul favourite that benefits greatly from just the right amount of low-end house pressure. Similar accolades could be placed on the gently bouncy disco-funk shuffle of Matt Hughes' electric piano and jazz guitar-laden "Walk The Chalk", or for that matter the deep, spacey and radiator-warm electrofunk bliss of Special Q's talkbox-sporting "Lost in You". Elsewhere, Sellouts goes all "boom-bap" on the freshly baked instrumental hip-hop head-nodder "Ain't No Thang", while Barry Closer gets tactile and glassy-eyed on the Balearic boogie of "Closer".

Review: While its releases have so far been sporadic, Hamburg's Room With A View has an impressive pedigree. Under the watchful eye of owner and A&R man Phil Dairmount, the label has proved a constant source of quality house and techno over the last three years - as this 15-track retrospective neatly shows. There's much to admire, not least Dairmount's overriding passion for machine soul. Everything here is touched by raw, electronic beauty, be it spine-tingling vocal techno (the wonderful Sebastien San/Aaron Carl collaboration "Faces"), Larry Heard-ish Chicagoan deepness (Motor City Drum Ensemble), melancholic futurism (Sasse, Basic Soul Unit) or smooth deep house (Art Of Tones).
