talman records is the new brainchild from french producer and dj samuel thalmann aka okain. the label aims to focus exclusively on the music from the label boss, digging deeper into his musical roots to create a modern sound. after spending the last eight years releasing on some of the most sought after labels like bpitch control, tsuba and truesoul to name a few, it s time for the parisian artist to setup his own imprint and to continue to showcase his personal interpretation of house music. here is the first release containing three new tracks.
vinyl only – after four first releases by myself, i invited three of my favorite producers and friends to take part in the first various artist ep of the label called retro future. a1 is provided by stevn.aint.leavn from the beste modus and certain circles camps. i ve been following stefan closely since the release of his big track -precious- and he is now making waves everywhere. for this record he provides -motion- a smashing house track that enlightened every dance floor i dropped it on. then comes alix alvarez, a real underground hero of the new york scene. he s been releasing tunes since more than 15 years, collaborating with mr v and franck roger. alix delivers the tune -no chaser-, a stripped back, deep and driving number that he is known for. the kind of track that made his reputation. on the other side of the record you ll find paolo rocco. he is the man of the moment, fresh from great releases on taverna tracks, rutilance or courtesy of balance to name a few. here we have -7284-, it has been a true favorite of mine over the last months. finally i round up the ep with -belle maison- a new jam i recorded a few months ago featuring an engaging french speech, mpc beats and fb-01 synths. welcome to retro future chapter one.
vinyl only – one year anniversary and already the fourth release for the french label talman records. once again okain is at the control, this time with three new tracks ranging from the retro futurist * invaders* to the rocking disco beats of * ballroom*
