DESCRIPTION

Hot on the heels of Jay Shepheard’s well received debut album ‘Home & Garden,’ Retrofit rolls on by welcoming a pair of duos to the label: the Berlin/Hamburg connection known as Session Victim, and a couple of hotly tipped London boys called Casino Times.

First up, Session Victim takes on Jay Shepheard and Matthew Burton’s ‘Liberal Z’ from Retrofit #5. They take full advantage of the original’s plucked bassline, and then stack it with their trademark live and swinging percussion. Once a cheerful guitar and warm chords join the mix, they reveal a number that will be ripe for the coming months of summer rooftops and Croatian beachside sunsets.

On the flipside, Casino Times reworks one of the label’s most popular tracks, Jay Shepheard and Martin Dawson’s B-side killer ‘Cut A Hole’ from Retrofit #9. Following up stellar appear- ances on UK imprints Wolf Music and Needwant, the pair ride the thick vocoded vox down into a much deeper territory of lush pads and spacey stabs, sure to soundtrack many late nights and early mornings.
