Swedish DJ/producer Claes Rosen is no newcomer to Local Talk, having first appeared on Mad Mats and Tooli's label back in 2013. This belated second outing is arguably the most summery deep house track you'll hear all winter. Full of dreamy vocal samples, sun-kissed chord progressions, tumbling electronics and Midday-bright synth flourishes, "Kvasten I Hoernet" feels like the audio equivalent of being gently massaged while sunbathing. It doesn't feel like it particularly needs remixing, but the accompanying Needs Remix - deeper, dreamier, a little more soulful, and shot through with the bass-heavy warmth of Landslide style 'future garage' - is equally as impressive as Rosen's original. For those who need intro drums to mix with, Rosen has also included an 'Extended DJ Edit'.
Cheeky little two tracker here, courtesy of Swedish nu-house label Local Talk. "Daydreaming" is your classic mid-90s smooth house: sleek and silvery with a warm organ riff and slick female vocal (not a million miles away from Closer Than Close). Meanwhile "Wonderful" is a perkier affair; all fizzy bleeps, speed garage beats and watery synth pads. Guaranteed to pack a floor.
