Over? Never! Spanish producers John Talabot and Pional are long-distance runners rather than sprinters, and their latest collaboration once again stretches out across billowing slow-disco beats. In this case, the release of the music has been as patient as the humming synths and feather-light vocals: “It’s All Over” first appeared, uncredited, as the first installment in the Blanc white-label series launched last year by Talabot’s Hivern Discs label. A percussive Locked Groove remix followed as the final track on Talabot’s DJ-Kicks entry. On August 4, “It’s All Over” will arrive on a 12-inch single via Hivern, including the Locked Groove mix and the plush reworking below by Talabot, whose use of breathy samples adds a glint of warmth as the electronic clouds gradually part. When “It’s All Over (John Talabot Stormbreak Refix)” is finally all over, it’s after seven-plus minutes of Balearic bewitchment.
