bbe is proud to announce the release of ‘influences vol. 2’, a compilation album and dj mix showcasing a selection of dj marky’s favourite music, created with a healthy disdain for genre-puritans and an emphasis on fun. taking in traditional brazilian music, disco, acid jazz, early house and of course a little drum & bass, ‘influences’ is more of an invitation to a barbecue in the são paulo sunshine than a chin-stroking ‘back to mine’ selection.
reissue des legendären ersten peacefrog-albums des detroiter house-produzenten kenny dixon jr. aka moodyman von 1998, der anhand soul, funk, gospel und hiphop-produktionstechniken tracks zwischen entspannten disco-dubs und rohen und dirty tech-house-tracks kreierte, die ihn zu einem der grössten einflüsse der house music und allgemein der black american music werden liessen.
such a unique productions by the mysterious duo from italy, who’ve got the cult acquaintance on the last year by the re-edit of moodymann, and also the debut album from optimo trax compiled with middle east oriented-legend muslimgauze. in some extents following up our expectation which we already have gained from their last features, as mashing up ethereal vocalization with primitive unknown phrases and acidy drum strength - b side takes us further more by building up sounds indeed destined to the middle of nowhere - referring jaraï, the vietnamese ethnic minority and mapuche as aborigines in south america as its title. exactly designed for you who have been bored with similar four-on-the floor stuffs in the club.

naibu was given the choice of remixing anything in the none60 back catalogue and chose to remix silent dust’s collaborations with detroit’s selfsays to astounding effect, keeping the hip hop elements of the original and mixing them with his unique drum work and atmospherics. selfsays vocals jump around naibu’s reworkings superbly to create two essential hip hop/drum & bass crossover tracks.

toydrum are a duo who sneak into the consciousness. not for them the full frontal assault but, instead, a drip-feed of classy work that many may know without knowing. their hugely acclaimed work with the late singer-songwriter gavin clark lit up shane meadows’ ‘this is england ‘90’, their rework of john lennon’s ‘how do you sleep’ led noel gallagher to have them remix his high flying birds hit ‘in the heat of the moment’ (which, in turn, soundtracked last year’s epic ad for the latest ‘assassin’s creed’ game), and their soundtracks for films such as the recent tye sheridan-starring thriller ‘detour’ and alice lowe’s 2016 venice film festival opener, ‘prevenge’, have broadened their appeal further. toydrum’s signing to skint records is now announced and celebrated by ‘my eye on you (to reinvision)’, a collective interpretation of their work thus far, running the gamut from nick cave’s balladry to trentemøller’s drum & bass-tinted electronica.

12" Vinyl UK21.04.17
damian lazarus & the ancient moons return. after damian debuted and played i found you as the last record at this year s day zero festival in mexico, it has become one of his most requested track ids. the first fruits from the bands recording sessions in italy, i found you features the sublime vocal talents of zulu and heralds a more soulful direction for the group. the original is accompanied by two remarkable remixes courtesy of black coffee and patrice bäumel. a phenomenal package which is set to major waves in the coming months.
selected advent deal. 2017 repress!!! one of the two the other people place releases (the warp full length and this 12). drexciyan involvement in this classic release is obvious. one of the deepest and intense tracks with such a warm positive vibe. flipside contains a track by mystic tribe. (not very mystical of course for those who know the history of detroit techno. unique track from a unique project... and there are not many projects with tribe in its name. their release on retroactive is one detroit techno collector items). one of those records that get you through the day. classic!!! re-issue on the clone aqualung series with new artwork.
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
a new vinyl reference from onward recordings. this will be the third release only vinyl, we can find tracks from bs as deep, joey kay and cotterell from usa, and franco cinelli, who made a remix. hi intensity house with powered bass lines show the way of a release with an artist supports like danny tenaglia
