its time for local talk to go local again with another swedish producer, eric ericsson. with numerous releases out in labels like planet e, fragile and freerange he is one of those producers with one foot in the techno scene and another in the more soulful house scene. basically, he is not a one trick pony! for his release on local talk we would say he lands somewhere between classic chi-town house and thumping nyc house groove but without sounding too retro or washed out. its simply real house music!
deep, soulful and techy treats by maestro eric ericksson. eric has been releasing his music since the early nineties on labels like fragile and planet e. in resent times eric’s music can also be found on papa records, local talk and freerange, to name a few. an elegant four tracker that starts out with the uncompromising and crude track ”greed”, followed by ”acquiescence” with its sharp and classy shuffles, lush strings and big sounding pads. the flip side starts of with ”totality”. complete, raw sounding with morphing dubby stabs, combined with rough grooves and punching beats. the ep ends off with the pulsating, dreamy and sensitive track ”closure”. nothing is left by chance when eric shows his vision and approach for modern electronic music.
eric ericksson is back with his fourth release on swedish brandy productions. a stunning hot deep four tracker. excellent quality productions in every aspect that differs a bit in style.
in the past eric has also released on labels such fragile, planet e communications, papa records, freerange and local talk. his full length album will be released this spring on swedish brandy productions.

eric erickssons not exactly the most prolific producer in the world but what he lacks in releases he certainly makes up for in quality. in 1997 eric signed his debut ep to derrick mays fragile records, established his own kass recordings in 2004 and then last year put out his killer someone is watching ep on carl craigs planet e. >love cannot< remixer mr beatnick has been in popular demand since his slow jack remix of hints >one woman army< on tru thoughts profoundly pushed his production skills into the limelight, quickly backed by the 2011 track >synthetes< on semteks >dont be afraid< label, which featured on many tracks of 2011 lists. his follow up ep, sun goddess, has already gained critical acclaim and support from the likes of gilles peterson on radio 1.
