John Talabot (DJ Set)
This November, Red Bull Music Academy is excited to bring Barcelona’s John Talabot to Mexico for a four-stop tour through the country. Expect sprawling journeys through sun-drenched machine funk from the top-class selector in Guadalajara, Monterrey, Mexico City, and Playa del Carmen.
John Talabot has been causing quite a stir on the international club circuit. Being rather elusive when it comes to showing his face, and a self-proclaimed purveyor of raw productions that are heavy on the bass and filled to the brim with bits and samples, John’s ecstatic tunes are a far cry from the cleaned up, emotion-lacking patterns some might mistake for house music these days. Traces of afro-beat, Northern soul and South American music are as present in his music as Detroit techno and the cosmic side of disco. His acclaimed releases on Permanent Vacation or Young Turks gained him the general reputation to be one of the rare breed of dance music producers out there who don’t try to beat a dead horse. When not in the studio lab or co-running the Hivern Disc label, Talabot can be found taking his live set and his DJ skills to festival stages and venues around the world.
