    A quick listen to the radio suggests that disco is back, not that it ever went away here at Retrospective and over the past few months we've been proud to work with some of the biggest names on the scene including Heion, Hardway Bros and Ajello. Still there's certainly something in the air and so what better time to welcome back to the label Spain's King of the Re-Edits, Rayko, with a stunning new 4 track EP.

    Since he last graced us with an EP he's gone from strength to strength, clocking up an impressive run of releases on labels such as Lumberjacks in Hell, Rare Wiwi and an album soon to be released on NANG. Throw in a relentless touring schedule and it's easy to see why Rayko is fast becoming one of the most loved names in modern day disco.

    So here we have the 'Can't Get Enough' EP, an apt title we think as the second the needle hits and the title track, a trademark boogie dancefloor smash, kicks in you'll be up on your feet. The hypnotic bassline, the 80's synth breaks and soulful vocals all combine to stunning effect guaranteeing this a place in the record boxes of the scene's leading players.

    Next up is Rock My World, a cheeky MJ sample and deliciously slow funky groove makes this dance floor dynamite. Flip over to the B side and Rayko increases the pressure with the fiery Step Out Of My Dreams before finally closing off the EP with Touch Me, reworking the classic Fonda Rae cut and delivering one of this summer's sureshot poolside anthems.

    With an unmistakable love and appreciation for disco and boogie and a true talent for taking the dusty classics of the past and given them a new lease of life, Rayko stand outs from the crowd. Internationally in demand as a DJ and with a huge following online, we're delighted to welcome Rayko back to the Retrospective family.

  • RETRO011 - Heion - This Time Play all

    Click here to buy the vinyl for only £4.99, 320k MP3s only 75p & WAVs only 99p at the Retrospective shop!


    Hot on the heals of the RETRO010 -- Ajello which is continuing to get hype comes an E.P. from an artist we have been following for quite a while...Heion! If you haven't heard of the young talented Romanian, which is pretty impossible, regarding his output over the past few months, you now have the chance to catch his vibe.

    With releases on Los Grandes, In The Woods, ISM Recordings, Editorial, Midnight Riot, Low Slung and Gazeebo International, Heion already has a catalogue that is more than impressive, regarding he's only been in the limelight for just over a year. He progressed quickly from sampling to solely creating his own futuristic sounds in his homestudio. It's fair to say that Heion is fast becoming a One To Watch in the slow down house scene.

    Both This Time & Big Fever feature Heion's trademark sound of beautifully tuned & programmed drums which will catch you from the get-go and the balearic vibe always makes you feel you'd be chilling on your favorite beach spot.

    Remixes on this project bring another new name to the Retrospective fold in the form of Dynamicron, aka Roberto Marrero. Following a string of releases on his own LOS GRANDES label Ruben & Ra came across Dynamicron when they both released on the Midnight Riot Volume 3 compilation earlier this year. This Time is given an Afrobeat makeover by Roberto ready the summer ahead.

    Finally after returning from some time in New York, Ruben & Ra give Big Fever a NYC makeover including using a cheeky vocal sample from the Bee Gees Night Fever to complete the package.

  • RETRO010 - Ajello - Kalimba Tune Play all

    Click here to buy the vinyl for only £4.99, 320k MP3s only 75p & WAVs only 99p at the Retrospective shop!


    After a storming end to 2012 with the Slow It Down & Elijah Collins release in November swiftly followed by Elias Tzikas in December, Retrospective is back with a monster of a release. We are proud to kick off 2013 with none other than Italy's finest; Ajello!

    Eclecticism is definately the keyword word of the Ajello project comprising of Luca (DJ Rocca) Roccatagliati and Fabrizio Taver Tavernelli. The Ajello sound features a number of influences all of which can be heard in the tracks on this, their first E.P. on Retrospective; electro, new-wave, italo-disco, disco, neurofunk, eurodance, space sounds, early house. Over the years their music has received worldwide support from a host of international artists including Laurent Garnier, Erol Alkan, Dimitri From Paris, Andrew Weatherall, and Nick Fanciulli amongst others.

    As this is the first E.P. of 2 from Ajello we decided to pull out all the stops on the remixes for this project. First up is Sean Johnson aka Hardway Bros, undoubtedly one of Future Disco's pioneers with a heritage to match who delivers a truly unique rework of Kalimba Tune taking us on a trip back to the warehouse sounds of the 80's. The second mix of Kalimba Tune is delivered by Chris Massey best known for his mixes of 2 Bear's - Bear Hug, Diplo & Sleazy Mcqueen who delivers a pure Nu Disco groover. In addition, for the digital release Verdo of Danny Was a Drag King fame brings his signature hypno-beat flavor to the fold alongside label owners Ruben & Ra who deliver a taste of Cosmic Jam to Saturday Morning. Quite a package I'm sure you will agree!
