John Talabot is a mysterious fella... and John Talabot is not even his real name. It's actually Oriol Riverola (he's also been recording under the D.A.R.Y.L. alias). Riverola came on the scene in 2009, with My Old School 12″ on München (Germany) based Permanent Vacation label. But it was his fourth EP, Families (2011), which got picked up by Young Turks that finally caught my attention. This London-based label, by the way, has been home to a few of my favorite artists, such as SBTRKT and The XX which is why, I suppose, I finally picked it up. The very latest, IN, is Riverola's debut full length album, this time back on the label he started with. The LP has caused a bit of stir in the indie community, especially amongst the followers of Four Tet, Booka Shade and Caribou.

Barcelona-based John Talabot produces the kind of house meets disco meets indie-pop, which at first made me take a double take and wonder how to properly categorize the style. Upon my third and fourth and consecutively fifth listen I started to get completely hooked on his infectious sound. There's a sense of mystery surrounding the swooshing synths, sporadic organic rhythms over the tribal housy beat and soft gliding sonic pads. IN is the kind of record you wished you found in the 80s, when the world obsessed with pop and MTV started to dramatically separate itself from the underground cassette scene. At the end I decided against genrefication and leave the record to speak for itself. It's no wonder that fans of electronic movement within the indie scene have developed a thirst for the quality-produced revived sound.

The music on IN maintains the kind of easygoing nonchalant atmosphere which at first makes you mistake it for the loop-driven sample-based simplicity.

This album is one of the best for EDM (I personally dislike this acronym and term) this year. Just smooth and buttery. It was on repeat for a trip around the globe and I swear I listened and studied the whole album over and over again. It's still in my Top 5 for the year. I've been making, listening and DJing EDM for over 25 years and this album harkens to the varying styles yet keeps things very much moving forward and fresh. Give it a listen, it's worth the $9. You can also listen to a couple of his remixes at my site, auxshux dot com.

Some people out there aren't impressed by electronic music in general. There was a time when I put myself in that category, so I can attest that for those people its worth changing your mind for this album by John Talabot.

My favorite track, as with so many albums, is the first, "Depak Ine." The noises of a synthetic jungle, a haunting chorus, and percussive beats that sound like they're wrapped in a heavy blanket sets the tone for the rest of the album. It's not a cheerful album, but it will make you smile. You'll smile because in the repetitious atmosphere of the songs, you'll continually be surprised by what Talabot might throw at you next. This effect doesn't wear off after several listens. I've already listened to the whole thing at least 15 times and I've taken the time to seek out the vinyl version.

The album artwork does the tone of the album justice: A dark tone overall, but the rip-wrapped patterns and layers of samples form an at once soothing and surprising sound.

I expect to see this album on many "Best of 2012" lists, including my own.
