A remarkably assured and instinctive piece of work, one that speaks of good times on the dancefloor while not being afraid to throw in more poignant and affecting emotions

Drowned in Sound

Fin is a body of work that has brought into focus and solidified the musical expression Talabot has been toying with for the last three years. 


Talabot builds upon his distinctive sound-- bursting with color, nostalgic but never retro, easy-going yet slightly unhinged-- without repeating himself.

Beats Per Minute

The album is vital and alive, and it culminates into these unsuspecting breathless, religious moments that reach well beyond its surface qualities.

The 405

The first great electronic record of 2012 has landed, and it’s taking you on a trip around the world – and beyond.

Consequence of Sound

The producer’s stylings coalesce into a pulsing and versatile dance release that easily justifies itself as one of the best we’ve heard so far this year.

FACT Magazine

Despite its patchier moments, fIN‘s effective command of light and shade make for an involving listen, and it’s a sound that’s pretty much Talabot’s own.

No Ripcord

The record makes for wonderful background listening but also has a good handful of tracks that would tear up a dancefloor in the hands of the right DJ.

The Needle Drop
On his debut album, Spanish electronic music producer creates one hypnotic groove after another, incorporating different sounds and ideas with each track.
As bumping as this is, not too much of this album is too distinctive for me. More pros than there are cons by a wide margin, but it's just that the few cons there are for this thing just relate to the boring, indistinctive passages that make up almost half of the album.
An extremely grooovy and entrancing house record that feels organic.

Best Track: Last Land
Worst Track: H.O.R.S.E.
Barcelona's wonder boy is swimming into the disturbed sea of rhythmology and fights bravely with its wild waves, bringing a glorious FIN to his struggle.
