“When Luke Solomon got in touch and said he wanted to work with Local Talk we felt both honored and happy, especially since we’ve been fans for a long time and Mats actually booked him to his Raw Fusion club in the late 90s. He’s been around long enough to be considered a legend within the scene. We couldn’t agree more.
Lost Channels, a 130 bpm piano driven and punk-dubby New York inspired house track comes in two versions. The Raw & Stripped Version is exactly what the name says, sharp snares & hihats, piano chords, a driving rhythm with percussions sprinkled on top. The Live Piano Version is actually the original version and is peppered with more of everything. Bubbly FXs, more of that staccato piano and of course that muscular bassline.
For remix duties it’s the return of an old Local Talk friend, Wil Maddams. It seems like Wil has spent some time in Detroit since last time. This remix sounds like something that would come straight of the D, a clever drum programming holds ties this track together with it’s deep pads and bubbling bassline. It’s a retro (but fresh) techno jam for 2014.” –Mad Mats & Tooli, Local Talk, February 2014
