Norm Talley / Ataxia
THE THREEONETHREE EP
12" Vinyl UK

Leftroom carries on their 15 year anniversary celebrations in fine style with a new EP from Detroit legend Norm Talley, who serves up two of his own bombs next to remixes of a previously released Ataxia track.
Motor City star Talley has been defining a stripped back, dubbed out tech sound for many years on labels like Landed, FXHE and many others. He opens this EP with Pulscocks, a dark and chattery cut with a menacing bassline that lingers down low. It's a high pressure track for sweaty back room clubs. Cosmic Reality is a spaced out and hypnotic roller with deft minimal pads and an eerie sense of atmosphere that encourages you to get lost in thought.
His superb remix of his good friends Ataxia's Rickaverse comes in two forms - the MF Mix, which is classic Norm Talley with its razor sharp hi hats and dubby, watery chords, and his house leading 313 Treatment, which rolls smooth and deep with lush piano chords and warped bass.
These are four more cultured cuts from the always excellent Leftroom. [info sheet from distr.]
