What better way then to present one of the best kept secrets out there, MLiR aka Modern Life Is Rubbish this time joined by Arnau Obiols, a multi-instrumentalist producer from Barcelona, who has some big upcoming releases under his moniker Velmondo.
After making a serious impact with their remarkable 'Swedish Lo-Life' and 'Trans-World Junktion', on fellow Swedish label Studio Barnhus, we're thrilled to have MLiR and Arnau onboard together for our 100th release on Local Talk.
Yes, that is correct, we're celebrating the big 100. Since the very beginning we've covered everything from the deeper shades of house to, the jackin' and the gritty house, released some slower BPMs and also the uplifting, vocal and organic house. As you probably noticed - we love it all.
The 100th release main track 'Lajbans' is one of those sublime tunes that is bridging the gap between all styles of dance music; it's epic and manages to offer plenty of subtle details to keep you locked for the full 9 minute experience. Accompanied with the original, is a masterclass in dub, 'Lajbans (Bellaterra Dub)'. You got the versatility of the original carefully stripped back, but also absorbing layers upon layers of sonic seductive moods. It's a trip for sure, and you don't want it to end. The boys have proven why they will be a force to be reckoned with for years to come
One More Fluorescent Rush is one of my favorite tracks of the decade; it is beautiful yet dynamic, laced with sparkling synths and melodies that will make sure it is being played at high volumes for years to come. The music video is a masterpiece as well, no surprise since Whities always comes correct with the visuals. Avalon Emerson's remix of Four Tet's Teenage Birdsong is also a must buy, reminding us that her signature sound remains unique and unlike anything else out there. Edward
