His name is John Talabot - known worldwide for heartfelt electronic dance music with a deep melancholic pop appeal. After the release of his international acclaimed solo album ƒIN, the producer, DJ, and record label maker from Barcelona toured around the globe with his close friends The xx. Last winter he released another celebrated record: a DJ-Kicks compilation that combines gently grooving downtempo and ambient delicacies, hard-to-find house classics, as well as some deep absorbing techno bangers. Beside his creative work he also runs his label Hivern Discs with a feeling for club music that grooves edgy while staying catchy. Talabot's DJ sets tie all his activities together to create a flow that makes you dance without a break. His very first solo DJ performance in Cologne will be rounded off by the local heroes Johannes Klingebiel and Thomas Gebhard.
