Young Turks continue their assault on releasing good music, paying no heed to genre politics in securing some all too rarely seen original material from Barcelona resident John Talabot. The tracks on Families really provide further evidence of the somewhat mysterious producer's endless progression into a musician of real talent, perhaps most notably on the title track collaboration with Glasser's Cameron Mesirow. "Families" is in a word sublime, a perfect melding of pop sensibility and glorious electronic production. It's obviously going to add to the reputation Talabot has amongst the music press glitterati, but crucially could see him gain wider appreciation. This is not a one track EP though, with Talabot indulging in some crazed digi horrorcore boombap business on "Lamento", all jagged vocal edits stretched over a sea of white noise and click clacking percussion. "Lovers Tradition" occupies similar territory, aping the hip-hop trend for chipmunk vocals and sinking them deep beneath twisting Eastern melodies that worm their way into your cerebral cortex with far too much ease. The final track sees Lonely Club rework "Families" - adding more club meat to the beat and laying down some hypnotic melodic qualities before slowly bringing in the vocal refrain. It's a perfect end to an excellent release.
