John Talabot is a youngster from Barcelona with a rather special way of approaching music. Borrowing his school's name for his alias and the most diverse samples for his music, he produces expansive and iconoclastic housey tracks. His influences range from flamenco to nouthern soul, from African music to traditional Asian songs and he's inspiration sources go from the profound and sensual house of Moodyman and labels such as Sound Signature or KDJ to Disco music, Chicago House, Pop or Techno, whatever he likes. Sounds like "a bass kick and a sampler", he says us in his MySpace, no less. This young producer and tireless musical tracker has the ability not just to find the appropriate samples but also to conjugate them wisely. In a great exercise of sonic inventiveness, guitars, strings and keyboards are combined in his tracks with rhythms and vocals with African reminiscences, to give us his own vision of house music, original and personal, but yet very effective. Cliché-allergic, songs like "Naomi", "Korlee" or "Afrika" sound cosmic and tremendously emotional without losing sight of the dance floor (that's what we call fat beats). His tracks are organic, human, full of life, the kind of music that keeps not only your foot moving but also your heart tingling.
