Young blood is the theme for Retrofit so far in 2014. Following the successes of his recent EP’s on Jimpster’s Freerange Records and John Talabot’s Hivern Discs, Barcelona-based Kresy contributes a pair of warm, summery house cuts for the A-side. He crafts a pair of immersive environments with lush melodies that meander casually around their insistent grooves.
On the other hand we have Borai. The Bristolian best known for his excellent contributions to the rising Tasteful Nudes imprint gives us a much darker impression. While ‘Mingo’ and ‘Albatross’ seem to soundtrack an oceanside sunset, ‘Nightfall’ and ‘Chromosphere’ are clearly meant for the late hours of the night.
