Talamanca System, the trio of International Feel boss Mark Barrott, German producer Phillip Lauer and Running Back boss Gerd Janson, also known as Tuff City Kids, are gearing up to release their self-titled debut album in May. The record’s 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. If this album were a car, it would be a Citroen 2CV remade by Tesla. Our first taste of the forthcoming album comes in the form of “Transatlantique”, a great, piano-led house tune.

The “Talamanca System” LP drops on May 19 via International Feel. Pre-order it here.

Tuff City Kids, the production duo of German producer Phillip Lauer and Running Back boss Gerd Janson, will drop their debut full-length album “Adoldesscent” tomorrow on Permanent Vacation, and it’s a great ride from start to finish. We’ve already heard the club mix of the record’s first single “Labyrinth”, a perfect slice of ’80s dance-pop featuring Norwegian electro-pop star Annie. Here’s a seriously classy rework of the original track from New York house maestro Morgan Geist. It’s guaranteed to light up any dancefloor.

Tuff City Kids’ debut album “Adoldesscent” also features guest appearances from Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, Kelley Polar, and Jasnau. Get it here.

Black Spuma, the collaborative project between prolific German producer and Tuff City Kids member Phillip Lauer and Italian electronic producer Fabrizio Mammarella, aka Telespazio, first caught our ear late last year with their excellent debut EP “Oasi” of four well-crafted tunes. Infamous for releases on Running Back, Beats In Space and Permanent Vacation, they return to Mark Barrott’s International Feel label with their second offering, a four-tracker called “Onda” of deep house grooves, breezy melodies, and Balearic vibes. Our favorite cut is the EPs title track, a six-plus-minute tune of pure house bliss. Blast it above.

The “Onda” EP is out now on International Feel. Buy it here.
