JMII x John Talabot

jmii

Jami Bassols has been a close member of Hivern since its beginnings as one half of Aster. Now, following the release of Noche/ Templo, his two acclaimed edits for NVH, he returns to the label with his solo debut as JMII.

In Thrills, the Barcelonian producer displays a sound that’s equally raw and lively, with a very personal sense of quirkiness. The title track is JMII’s most expansive production to date. An uplifting house number built around an elastic bassline and sprinkled with a bubbly arpeggiated melody, echoed vocal snips and ravey pads. Bailar is a sort of lunatic take on chi-house, with a crude bassline, psychotic organ chords and feverish percussion coming together to form an ultra-infectious groove.

Tightbrass follows a similar path, but conducted by frenzied synthetic horns that bring to mind a marching band of manic robots. In his remix, Comeme’s Christian S. brings the track to a darker territory, reducing it to it’s core elements and focusing in a nasty bassline that will for sure cause serious damage in the dancefloors in the upcoming months.

The 12” comes wrapped in a sleeve designed by Christian Schafer aka Graphic and Sound.

The digital version of “Thrills” also includes a rework of the EPs title track by Ξohn Talabot.Check it out below:

John Talabot – Edits

When I’m on tour travelling I do edits. While waiting in airports, customs, hotels, soundchecks or travelling in planes, cars, vans, trains or boats I do them.

Here’s a small selection of edits I’ve done, some of them are released, some of them will be, some of them won’t, but you will have them here 🙂 hope you like them.” JT
