Last Saturday, at Montreal's Mutek festival, I remember being surprised by how band-like John Talabot's live set can be; fellow Spanish producer Pional was singing the vocal parts on the mic, and the majority of the performance consisted of the two of them hitting on electronic drum pads. That live musicianship aspect is obviously lost on this extended edit of fIN album track "So Will Be Now...," but the finger-snapping, Temptations-sampling house production pretty sublimely evokes the teeming masses of ecstatic party revelers that were there to soak it all in. This one's available via Permanent Vacation on a limited slab of green vinyl with the album version on the flip.
