After the success of Rayko’s Juno chart topping ‘People’ EP (Retro006), Retrospective label heads Ruben & Ra step back into the breach for the label’s 7th release.
For their 4th outing on the label they came to notoriety on, the West London-based duo came up with the concept of selecting their favorite stateside disco cuts from between 1980 and 1985 and reworking them into 4 entirely new tracks.
Already gathering hype, ‘When I’m Feelin’ borrows from Geraldine Hunt’s watershed 1980 classic ‘Can’t Fake The Feeling’, while ‘My Love’ samples the Malibu-based producer Ned Doheny’s ‘To Prove My Love’ from ’81.
Over on the flipside, the soul-injected ‘Everybody Loves Good Music’ pays homage to the Dayton’s Capitol Records-signed ‘The Sound Of Music’ from ’83, with a boogie jam entitled ‘All Night’ inspired by Inner Life & Jocelyn Brown’s 1984 anthem ‘Moment Of My Life’ completing the package.
As is always the case with a Retrospective EP, there’s a 320k FREE download and this time it’s the sunshine electro-funk of ‘Everybody Loves Good Music’.
