it really feels like we (aka mad mats & tooli) have been around way longer than 5 1/2 years with local talk. but it s really true what they say. time flies when you re having fun! from what started as a somewhat simple and almost primitive urge to create a small house imprint has now grown into a much bigger affair. we really tried hard to keep the label from getting stuck in any genre (remember 90s house?) and to always keep the local talk relevant. curious. diverse and with a healthy dose of underground mentality. from our very first release with bassfort s excellent moon shadow in the summer of 2011. we had a crystal clear vision of what local talk should represent...house music in any way. shape or form! over the years we released soulful. disco. jack. afro. vocal. deep. jazz. tech. latin. old school. acid. uk. berlin. new jersey. detroit and of course chicago inspired house music. if it made us bump...we put it out! this brings us up to today and about +80 releases later. we thought about how we best could sum up these first 5 1/2 years and immediately the image of blaze s classic album 25 years later popped up. besides the fact that it s an amazing album cover it also a good representation when different musical genres fuse together. it s not strictly a house album but just as well a r&b. reggae and soul album. this fusion and variation of house sounds is something that we ve tried to capture on our 5 1/2 years later compilation. split into two parts. on part 2 you ll find a high energy disco rub from parisian s3a. a truly deep and soulful vocal jam from boddhi satva & sly johnson. a deep uk garage production from smbd (aka simbad). a dark and electronic affair from toto chiavetta (yoruba) and finally a musical acid number with that magical bristol touch from newcomer marcel lune. all in all we think we got most angles covered and hopefully this album will make you spread that chalk on the dance floor and get down...local talk style
its been nearly a year since he featured on robsoul. under his v.i.c.a.r.i. alias. but sheffield house don tommy vicari jnr returns to the label with another beautifully creative ep. opener ‘breff’ is a coming together of polar opposites. whilst harps glide across the prodigious pulse of its acidic bassline. open hats shimmy and snares strike. somehow. all together. it works to perfection. the quaking bass. grinding stab and ‘get dahn’ vocal serve to create a stripped back tool across the opening bars of our a2. however when the beats drop its secret is revealed within its killer groove. as the lights come on tommy rolls out one final jam in glittery disco cut ‘in the night’. a last seductive slice from the northern powerhouse and one that leaves us hotly anticipating his robsoul return.
jt donaldson. dj and producer from texas has an impressive background with releases and collaborations on prestigious labels like balance. earthtones. distance. panhandle…and cyclo. he developed his own style of house music throughout the years using influences from jazz. funk & soul. this reissue ep originally out in 1999 is one of his best. 4 pieces of fuzzy house with spaced out effects. heavy bass rides and unique groove

the music has come into my life when i was about 9 years old. thanks to one of my sisters tape with songs by bob marley and the wailers. so i switched from reggae to dub. from dub to jazz. from jazz to radical improvisation in a moment.now i m 33. and after producing pretty much any kind of music. i want to put together what i still like of dub music with that of the south of europe. which is the place where i grew up. melting everything together with vintage equipments and working with modern machines at the same time. playing and producing this music has been therapeutic for my head. making all this known is for me like seeding again the love for music without any distinction. andrea gabriele 1981 - 2015
