Review: Local Talk are one of the hottest labels in the 4/4 domain, and this latest floor-ready bomb sees Swedish producer Eric Ericsson doing his thing in fine style. "Love it" is a smooth house belter for the warm summer months, working for both warm-up and peak time sets, while "The Chi", as the name suggests, is a sweet Chicago-style house nugget that's a surefire floor-filler. To top it off, Oskar Offermann remixes "Love it" and goes even deeper than the original. Bangin'.
Review: For those who lack the time and willpower to keep track of Local Talk's frenetic release schedule, the popular deep house label's Talking House series is something of a lifesaver. Like its' predecessors, this fourth installment was compiled by label bosses Mad Mats and Tooli, and gathers together 13 more highlights from their rapidly-expanding catalogue. Naturally, highlights come thick and fast, from the hip-hop meets classic deep house flex of Zoe Zoe's "Bust Them Wifes" and the classic Balearic house revivalism of Luke Solomon's "Lost Channels (Live Piano Version)", to the hustling percussion hits and constantly-rising electronics of Kyodai's "Konbanwa" and the delicious jazz-house bounce of Moodymanc's "Morning".
