A DJ and producer who has recently released his debut record, ƒIN, Barcelona's John Talabot creates intricate sonic compositions that blur the lines of the electro-driven genres of techno, house, and disco pop. "Last Land" is a fitting exemplar of Talabot's skilled craftsmanship. Synthy strings swirl and loop amidst measured beats and unintelligible vocal wails. Talabot's methodical repetition is dizzily hypnotic as the track builds slowly to a complete drop-off, and then resumes full bore alongside a clattering of electro-snare beats. Unleash "Last Land" in your headphones with an extra kick of volume and just try not to grin and nod your head. Happy Monday.
