Evidently the alias of someone already established, you can forgive the diversionary tactics of East London's DrumTalk when the music he makes is of the standard shown on this killer Soundway 12". No stranger to the label having previously contributed a remix to The Busy Twist's excellent Friday Night EP, DrumTalk has also graced the likes of More Music, Sofrito and Huntleys & Palmers with his distinct brand of dancefloor output. A cross pollination of sounds derived from London, NYC, Detroit and Chicago blended with the polyrhythms of West Africa, it's not for nothing that DrumTalk often gets compared to Dan Snaith's Daphni. There's a confidence and diversity to the four productions that mark DrumTalk out as an established producer clearly looking to be judged on music alone and it's an impressive statement.
