Get Down (The Moonfunk dub) - (4:51) 120 BPM
Review: Those who like musically expansive, jazz-funk influenced deep house loveliness should already be aware of Thomas Laroye's slim but impressive catalogue, which includes notable outings on Freerange and Atjazz Record Co. Here the French producer delivers his debut album, an inspired eight-track set that perfectly encapsulates the summery, sun-soaked excellence of his work. Expect soulful songs, broken house beats, kaleidoscopic jazz-funk and boogie synths, mazy instrumental solos and audible references to classic U.S garage and New Jersey house. Highlights include (but are in no way limited to) Javontte hook-up 'Let It Go', the shuffling samba-house flex of 'People Out There', the Kaidi Tatham-esque 'Grateful' and the synth solo-sporting heaviness of 'Get Down (The Moonfunk Dub)'.

Review: Next up from Local Talk, a sweet foray into shuffling garage flavours as the legendary Zed Bias touches down for a spot of remix duty, overhauling Envee and Ania Szarmach's awesome 'Sum Love' original. First up, we explore the full 2-Step mix, giving the vocal a ghostly new backdrop to navigate through, flanked by bubbling bass pulses and jittery melodic flickers, before taking a quick listen to the original version. We then explore the more dramatic melodic switch ups and glistening harmonic layerings of the Locally Talking 3nv33 mix, before diving into both the radio and instrumental mixes to round off. A good old fashioned garage remix pack, what more could you ask for?

Review: On part two of the label's 13th anniversary compilation series, Local Talk bosses Tooli and Mad Mats serve up nine more previously unheard cuts from imprint artists and invited guests. As you'd expect given Local Talk's impressive track record, there's not a duffer in sight. After opening with a gorgeously warm, breezy and summery chunk of jazz-flecked electronic house by Wipe The Needle ('Light Years Away'), we're treated to an inspired mixture of sweaty, upbeat Latin jazz/house fusion (James L'Estrange Orchestra), speaker-bothering low-end wobblers (Damon Frost's accurately titled analogue jam, 'Dutty House'), piano-laden classic house excellence (Glenn Davis), dancefloor dub (Riddim Research Lab), Italian dream house revivalism (Aurelius), and much more besides.

Review: Label co-founder Mad Mats is at the wheel of this handy 'introduction to the soulful side of Local Talk', as the collection's subtitle puts it. While much of the label's catalogue is imbued with some level of soulfulness, the tracks showcased here are particularly righteous, emotive and life-affirming. It oozes soul from start to finish, with the many highlights including (but in no way limited to), the sun-soaked, Latin-fired soulful house shuffle of Coflo and Lee Wilson's 'Fool For You', the early Mood II Swing style warmth of 'Daydreaming' by Claes Rosen, the gospel-fired drowsiness of Art of Tones ('The Same Thing'), the energy-packed piano house motifs of Emvee's 'Gotta Work' and a fine New Jersey garage-goes-deep house revision of Soul Renegades' 'Speak To Me' courtesy of OPOLOPO.

Wait - (6:18) 123 BPM
Review: Regular collaborators Coflo asnd Lee Wilson are no strangers to Tooli and Mad Mats' Local Talk label; in fact, this two-tracker marks their third appearance on the esteemed Swedish house label. They begin with the deliciously warm and confidently soulful 'Quiet', where Wilson delivers an impeccably emotional lead vocal atop a bouncy Afro-house beat, jaunty bass, lively organ stabs and bubbly electronic motifs. Add in some bonus percussion and drum machine hits and you have a sublime slab of 21st century dancefloor soulfulness. On 'Wait', the pair opts for an even deeper and dreamier sound, with Wilson's distant-sounding vocals weaving in and out of undulating electronic melodies, ocean-deep pads and some sublime melodic flourishes.

Review: While Local Talk has always tended towards the deeper and more soulful end of the house spectrum, there's no denying the jazz chops of label co-founder Mad Mats and the imprint's penchant for jazzier house workouts. It makes perfect sense, then, that the Swedish DJ/producer would want to showcase that side of Local Talk's output with this tidy trawl through the back catalogue. It naturally contains a wealth of jazz-flecked, floor-friendly gems, with the many highlights including Vick Lavender's near 20-minute, Latin jazz-influenced 'Time Traveller Mix' of his own 'Shifting Gears', a deliciously warm, woozy and sub-heavy tweak of Coflo's 'Lux' courtesy of Kaidi Tatham, Kai Alce's 'St Germain does Detroit deep house' re-vision ofMunk's 'Hot Medusa' and Ron Trent's luscious take on 'Rising' by Kyoto Jazz Sextet.

Fist Of The North Star - (5:40) 126 BPM
Review: Fresh from delivering some jazz-funk influenced soulful house and broken beat flavours on Z Records, Lee Gomez AKA Wipe The Needle returns to Local Talk, a label he's been loosely associated with since 2019. The experienced producer immediately hits his stride with 'It's My World Ya Heard', a loose-limbed chunk of woozy deep house marked out by swinging beats, jazzy synth-bass and classic-sounding synthesizer chords. 'Would You' is a jaunty, soul-fired slab of samba-house loveliness smothered in futuristic jazz-funk synth sounds, while 'Fist of the North Star' is a sparkling, kaleidoscopic slab of heavily electronic broken beat/jazz-funk fusion full of subtle nods towards Motor City music and the hybrid works of Dego and Kaidi Tatham.

Review: Lee Gomez started producing jungle in the early '90s, but a chance meeting at a recording studio in 2005 was the birthplace of Wipe The Needle. With Mikael Nybom, they released on Slip'n'Slide, Deeply Rooted House and Raw Fusion but since 2013 it has been a solo endeavour by Gomez. He returns to Local Talk, taking up where he left off on the last release with more UK broken beat vibes on "Round Of Applause" featuring Aleysha Lei, which is backed by some off-kilter nu-jazz as heard on "Jack The Nitty" and the late night bounce of "Event Horizon".

Having gone on to work with Toolroom Records, If It Ain't Jazz, G.A.M.M. and Vive La Musique since, Major has been invited back for the first time since 2019 to 'tweak' his personal favourites from the Local Talk back cat. This includes some rare numbers from Soulphiction and Jamie 326 next to some straight up remixes of Urban Sound Lab Presents Miss Yankey and Wil Maddams - alongside OPOLOPO & Actual Proof numbers "Silkworms" and dubby broken beat slice "Hubble".

Corrado Bucci - "No One Can Stop Us" - (6:25) 120 BPM
Review: Man of the moment Felipe Gordon is in a rich vein of form right now, which each new week bringing a fresh batch of tracks or remixes. He's in the latter mode on Reworks, Volume 3, the latest volume in his ongoing series for Local Talk. He heads for 4AM heads-down territory on his fine revision of Marcel Vogel AKA EmVee's 'Brotherman Part 1', adding hazy, hypnotic riffs, sampled blues vocals and dazzling early morning synth stabs to a bass-heavy deep house beat. He channels the Colombian sunshine on track two, a colourful, retro-futurist house re-make of Corrado Bucci's 'No One Can Stop Us' that's full to bursting with bright piano riffs, tactile synth bass and sweaty, swinging drums.

Merrick - "The Scene" (feat Baxley - Felipe Gordon rework) - (6:30) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Having kick-started his new remix series with inspired re-rubs of tracks by Kyodai and Fish Go Deep, man of the moment Felipe Gordon has now turned his attention to cuts from Crazkazat and Merrick. His revision of the former's 'Silent Sling' is undeniably inspired, with heady Latin percussion, jazzy keys and Motor City techno chords rising above rolling house beats and a heavy, mind-altering bassline. It's basically Latin deep house re-imagined for the 21st century, and that's no bad thing. There's more of a swinging, loose-limbed feel to his version of Merrick's 'The Scene', which the Colombian producer re-imagines as a bumpin', stab-happy affair full of raw analogue bass, dreamy pads and electronic jazz-funk flourishes.

Review: Not content with delivering some of the most inspired original productions of the year (see his EPs on Shall Not Fade for starters), jazz-funk loving deep house star Felipe Gordon has now decided to showcase his talents as a remixer. He begins his first Reworks EP for Local Talk by taking on Kyodai's 'Breaking', delivering a fine revision that adds rubbery bass guitar, tight organ stabs, short vocal snippets and waves of delay-laden jazz piano solos to a rolling deep house groove. Gordon veers deeper into jazz-house territory on the accompanying remix of Fish Go Deep's 'Off Script', making the most of snaking clarinet and sax lines, sparkling synth stabs and a quality broken house beat. In a word: superb.

Review: Something of an enigmatic legend within the Swedish soul digging scene, Envee - aka Maciej Golinski (aka Ukokos) - gets the rework on Local Talk via a set of Trev remixes. Featuring fine house vocalist Nick Sinckler, Trev throws down two mixes with a dub vibe that perfectly settles the vocals in a B-side track reminiscent of Jacques Renault on fire back in the day. Full of misty, rainbow-kissed themes and sweet delay effects, you can tip your hat toward Trev's broken beat, future deep house style. Giving the original a slightly techier makeover in the lead remix, Trev works the soul angle this time around while pushing the track's peak time, US garage accessibility to the front. Gotta work.

Review: Mad Mats & Tooli's ever reliable Local Talk imprint out of Sweden returns this week with a new one by Brighton's Luke Fono, who last appeared on our radar a while back with his terrific track "Telephone" with Buddha Kid. His offering here is the ultra deep mood music of "4Real" featuring an evocative vocal by BB James. With its breezy neon-lit chords and swung garage rhythms, it is the perfect backdrop to James' vocals and will appeal to fans of Kaidi Tatham or 4hero. There's also a handy dub and edit featured for all the DJs out there.

Review: Having released a debut album in 2017 via the GAMM label, Riddim Research Lab reveals itself again as some kind of enigmatic dub tribe with a curveball release finding its way to Swedish label Local Talk. This we can assume comes through Berlin duo Kyodai - who have collaborated with the likes of Basic Soul Unit, Mule Musiq, Freerange and Local Talk before. Together the pair deliver a largely instrumental number, strummed and dubbed out by warmer reggae vibes, a touch of disco and that tropicana flavour oozing from those sweet splashes of space echo and guitar. Get yer dubs, Local Talk.

Review: L'Aroye is Thomas Arroyo, a DJ and producer from Paris who is now living in Brighton. He's had some releases previously for the likes of Visions Inc., Tiff's Joints and Magic Black. He is back for another appearance on Mad Mats & Tooli's ever reliable Local Talk imprint with this one titled "Keep On" featuring two tracks that go down separate paths. The deep, evocative and altogether spiritual energy of the title track captures the very best elements of legends such as Kerri Chandler or Ron Trent, while the 6 A.M dub mix is a worthy addition too. On this version he streamline the groove for DJ use in fine fashion.

Review: Local Talk's packed release schedule means that keeping up with the label's releases can be tough. Happily, founders Mad Mats and Tooli found a solution long ago: the best-of style Talking House compilation series, which here notches up its 11th instalment. Packed to the rafters with high-quality deep, dusty, jazzy and soul-fired house, the collection's highlights are plentiful. Our picks include the hazy gospel-house hustle of Soulphiction's 'Niederbeat Gospel Dub', the jazzy Afro-house warmth of 'One Less (Main Send)' by Urban Sound Lab presents Miss Yankey, the extra-percussive, organic deep house positivity of Vick Lavender's spacey 'Shifting Gears', the bruk-up breeze that is Anthony Nicholson and Mark De Clive-Lowe's 'Another Story', and the sunset-ready, bossa-house breeze of Shaka's'New Relationship'.
