Talaboman – Discodrums
Two years on from the release of their superb debut album "The Night Land", John Talabot and Axel Boman re-boot their Talaboman project via a suitably strong comeback single. A-side "Discodrums" is something of a twisted late night epic - a heavily percussive workout that layers drums, creepy chords and weirdo electronics atop a druggy arpeggio style bassline. "Flashforward" is an altogether more melodious affair. It sees the experienced duo dip the tempo, reach for the dub effects and reggae style drum fills, and get busy with a hypnotic but warming synthesizer motif. It's not quite dub house, but it certainly has a similar sonic sensibility.
