Gerd Janson, Philipp Lauer, and Mark Barrott Return for Talamanca System LP
'Talamanca System' LP is scheduled for May 19 release.
The trio met on the white island on the beach of Talamanca. A remix request by Mark Barrott bedded the International Feel boss in the trio with Philipp Lauer and Gerd Janson, also known as Tuff City Kids. A highly sought-after 12-inch later (Balanzat), as well as fantasies of getting together to work on more material, led to a fruitful studio session on the non-Balearic outskirts of Frankfurt am Main. The outcome of that session is the trio’s debut album.
According to the label, the release consists of nine tracks “ranging from up to downtempo, piano house smashers that would have deserved the prefix Italo-, percussion rituals captured by a group of zoo animals on the loose, soundtracks for dusk and dawn, hushed vocals, rites of ambient passages, powerful synth ballads and vamp choirs.”
