We’re celebrating 50 release on Local Talk and what better way to do it than welcome Alexander Lay-Far, the Moscow-based DJ and producer to the family. We’ve been following Alex for some time now. Being a driving force behind soulful and eclectic music scene in Russia, releasing lot’s and lot’s of fantastic music onl 4Lux, Tru Thoughts, City Fly, Glenview and gaining constant support from the likes of Jimpster, Laurent Garnier, Osunlade, Joey Negro, Move D, Recloose just to name a few. Communcation EP contains three original tracks and a remix from Daniel Leseman and Hans Peeman aka Fouk. The opening track Side 2 Side (I Just) with it's vocal sample cuts brings a unique mood and is a joyful disco and house jam, perfect for the summer. Get On It! continues on the same vibe with it's vocal samples, the punchy kicks, slapped claps and grooved percussions, this baby will drag you into a devilish dance in seconds. Feel Like Making Dub is a late night groover that's both soulful and deep. The layers of the kick and percussions, the dark bassline, keys and strings sure makes you feel a bit warmer. Lay-Far's fingerprints is on every sound from this lovely track. Last but not least is Fouk on remix duties. The dynamic duo rearranges the already familiar elements of the original from Side 2 Side and turns it into something that would fit perfect in any dj-set with a MCDE flavour.
