East London producer and DJ DrumTalk is to release his new EP through Soundway Records. Inspired by the musical lineage of London, Chicago, New York and Detroit, elements of house music, techno music, bass culture and the rhythms of West Africa are all to be found here. Distinctive in its raw immediacy, DrumTalk's music belongs in the same dark corners of the dancefloor as Daphni’s recent ‘Jiaolong’ LP.
His productions and remixes for More Music, Sofrito and more recently Soundway have already been making an impact far and wide, getting attention of DJs such as Mr Scruff, Gilles Peterson, Soul Clap, Luke Solomon and Huntleys and Palmers.
Little else is known about DrumTalk, when asked by Soundway he replied:
“DrumTalk is the sound of machines being controlled by a human and the sound of a human being controlled by machines. Digital, analogue and acoustic. High-fi and Low-fi. Synths, drum machines and echo units, hand claps, finger snaps and banging on a drum“
The 12” vinyl comes with a free MP3 of the release.
Release date: Nov 19, 2012
