While Barcelona beatmaker John Talabot first rose to prominence with his gleeful house record, Sunshine (2009), it’s his debut LP, ƒIN (2012), on Permanent Vacation, that brought about unmitigated praise for his infectious brew of tropical house bliss. His concoction of slow tempos, woozy vocal samples, swelling chords and basslines bursting with energy - amounted to one of 2012’s best albums, according to Resident Advisor, NME and XLR8R. After touring through North America as The xx’s opening act last year, Talabot crosses the Atlantic once more to serve up his rapturous build-and-release house grooves.
