RETRO011 – Heion – This Time
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.
