Rome based artist SofaTalk draws his inspiration from a melting pot of genres, including disco, funk, neosoul, boogie, broken beat and future jazz. He combines these classic influences with contemporary electronic sounds to form a truely unique style of production. He's also the founder of Cognitiva Records and a sought-after selector. For this release he creates four deep and laid back original tracks. London-based veteran Kaidi Tatham adds the icing on the cake with a signature broken beat remix. Exercices de Style opens the record on a smooth vibe with beautiful Rhodes pieces, and complex rhythms. On Telepathic Flute, as the title suggests, a flute lights up the mood, with the help of a saxophone and a guitar. The A side's third track, entitled The Hope Suite, moves towards a more mysterious atmosphere, built up by several tension moments with subtle releases. The B side consists of two versions of a track called Like a Magpie. SofaTalk's original version combines guitar, bass, trumpet, saxophone, flute, piano chords and drums for a full jazz house session. On the remix, Kaidi Tatham gives the original a funky twist by extending the guitar part, then adding his unique rolling drums and brilliant keyboard improvisations.
