RETRO004 - Ruben & Ra - Street Machine

RETROPOD020 – Rayko’s Retrospective mixtape

After bringing Spanish boogie don Rayko to their increasingly watched Retrospective fold for RETRO003, the still unmasked Ruben & Ra emerge once again from the looming shadow of Trellick Tower with another 4-tracker.

Dedicating the A-side to the golden era of stateside electro, ‘Street Machine’ lifts samples from Break Machine’s East Coast anthem ‘Street Dance’, while ‘Moving On’ pays homage to the Californian soul of Ollie & Jerry’s iconic ‘There’s No Stoppin Us’ from ’84.

Over on the flip, the Sun is shining brightly with two poolside jams in the form of ‘Do You Need My Love?’ and the EP’s secret weapon ‘Island Living’.
