Check Out John Talabot's Remix of Bobby B
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Last month, NYC transplant Bobby B (a.k.a. Bobby Browser) announced his forthcoming History / So True EP, a four-track record which is set to include a rework from Barcelona staple John Talabot. Now, Bobby B's "So True" and Talabot's accompanying remix are streaming in full. Where Bobby B's original is a soulful, shuffling tune smeared with loose Rhodes chords, Talabot's remix extends the track into a more synth-led voyage, locking into hypnotic rhythms that build alongside bright arpeggios and subtly swelling melodies.
Before the History / So True EP sees a release via the SF-based Icee Hot imprint (which, we should point out, is co-run by XLR8R editor Shawn Reynaldo) later this month, Bobby B's "So True" and John Talabot's elongated "Espiral Mix" of the track can both be streamed in full below.
