John Talabot‘s mindblowing DJ Kicks compilation was not only one of the year’s most exciting mixtapes, it featured a number of notable tracks which, at the time, were unavailable and unreleased.
The Locked Groove rework of Pional’s “It’s All Over Now” was a highlight. Round’s “Glass“ was another.
Talabot’s Hivern Discs released a 12″ of Round tracks, which like most Hivern releases, are rare and highly sought after booty on Discogs.
A mysterious producer out of Copenhagen, Round (Torsten Lindsø Andersen) makes a remarkably warm, heady fusion of Techno and House.
Like Talabot, Andersen’s productions have a unique fingerprint. Shimmery, labyrinthine dance music that skitters like a charmed snake.
The 3 tracks on the “Glass” EP mesmerize and invite you to get lost in them.
“Lucky Star” is a full tilt stunner and one of the best things I’ve heard this year.
