Who: John Talabot
Where: Barcelona, Spain
This young Spaniard's true identity remains a mystery—the name John Talabot was borrowed from his former school—but there's no question that the producer's work is top-shelf. The slow-motion house of "Sunshine," bearing traces of disco and Detroit techno, first put him on the map in 2009 and even won over the Pitchfork crowd, a process bolstered by the single's 2010 reissue with remixes from Blondes and his friends from Delorean. Artists like Glasser and The xx have taken notice and enlisted Talabot for remixes, his own acid-flavored "Mathilda's Dream" 12" recently dropped on Permanent Vacation, and a follow-up on Young Turks is in the works, as is a full-length album.
