Podcast 197: John Talabot
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
XLR8R has been tracking the progress of John Talabot for more than a year now, and although we've gleefully devoured one washed-out, blissful house tune after another from the Spanish producer, precious little information has emerged as to who he actually is. (For instance, John Talabot is not even his real name.) However, we do know that he resides in Barcelona, pals around with the guys in Delorean, has released a couple of singles on Permanent Vacation, and has been tapped to remix folks like The xx, Glasser, and Teengirl Fantasy. This week, Talabot released another batch of new music, the Families EP, via Young Turks. To commemorate the occasion, Talabot has put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series, an offering that finds the mysterious auteur hazily winding his way through sun-soaked house, spacey disco, washy techno, and all points in between.
