Local Talk broadens the palette further with new music by Melbourne producer Prequel.
The A-side plays host to “Freedom”, a jazzy, undulating, mixed-up house sound that epitomizes the spirit of Prequel in one track. It’s loose and swinging beat infused with hip shaking bass, heavily percussive piano riffs and crunchy claps only quieten to make way for an unidentified vocal, who politely thanks you for listening and hopes you have a great time while you are here. It sits perfectly in peak time territory as it does on a late-night after-hour tip.
On the flip is the ever evolving “Lefty”. A track that starts off playful & dreamy and features some truly lovely keyboard work. After settling into the groove it takes a sudden and sharp left turn and enters a harder acid focused workout. Percussive elements weave definitively in and out of the bass line as Detroit influenced vocal cry’s echo throughout the background. This is the type track you'll be sure to hear blasting out of speaker stacks on all open minded dance floors around the globe.
Another accomplished and celebratory affair from Prequel, it comes highly recommended.

Great project, played iigo on my weekly broadcast radio show and the phone line lit up. People pulling their cars over to call asking about the tune. Played it in one one my DJ sets and the floor lit up. This is definitely my favorite track. lukumipeople

Plenty of worldly deep and ethnic house with a few poke-outs of jazz and techno, this comp holds much of much-needed material for today's life. Rarely do you come across stuff that is not only enjoyable to dance to, but can also heal one's own wounds from time, especially with the excellent minimal, laidback melody Local Artist "Dreams." Matter-of-fact lyrics spoken by a gentle voice and backed by tranquil drums and organ really can melt away all stress that crops up in our days... pC

Remembrance - wow... each part. Utterly, utterly perfect. Inspiring drums...
Strings Of Light pulls you in from the start, letting you know you're in for a great trip.
Joint 17 is another great track, smooth and funky and exploring around the edges of the groove.
Black Focus is a great opener and Yo Chavez is really nice.
Lowrider... mmm, the theme is bit retro for me, which is fitting - and brilliant playing, of course.
