A little over a year ago, John Talabot’s label Hivern Discs dropped “It’s All Over”, the first installment of the imprint’s white-label “Blanc” series, which was shrouded in mystery. As it turned out, this uncredited track was made by Madrid-based producer Pional, while Belgian producer Locked Groove’s rendition of the track was featured on John Talabot’s DJ Kicks mix. Now, Hivern Discs is reissuing the stellar tune “It’s All Over in another 12” with remixes from Locked Groove and John Talabot. The digital edition will also include an alternate version by Pional himself, and a second remix by label boss John Talabot. You can grab a free download of Talabot’s “Stormbreak Refix” of “It’s All Over” for free below.

The “It’s All Over” Remixes 12″ will arrive on August 4 via Hivern Discs.
