After making waves on vinyl, mysterious London duo Ruben & Ra’s first edits 12″ makes the transfer to digital download. For those who dig the housier end of the disco edits scene, Retrospective 001 should be essential listening. It takes the filter-heavy, muddy low-end disco/electrofunk pulse of Tiger & Woods and gives it a party-friendly, hands-in-the-air twist. So where T&W delight in building slow-burning epics from tracky loops and subtle builds, cuts like “Newer Shoes” (yep, a version of “I Can’t Wait”) and “Play My Song” prefer to get on with it. What you get is the best of both worlds – fun party jams with enough subtle variations and production tricks to impress the heads.
