RETROFIT project got off to a cracking start earlier this year, the first release achieving top positions on the vinyl and download charts of the major stores and receiving DJ support from such modern luminaries as The Revenge, Catz N Dogz, dOP and Brendon Moeller. Now RETROFIT head Jay SHepheard teams up with Matthew Burton and his partner Kate Rathod to deliver a fine slice of electronic deepness for the second installment. Matthew has been cutting his teeth in the scene lately with releases on Denmark’s Connect Four and London’s Leftroom while in future talks are afoot of a Burton release on the much coveted Wolf + Lamb. Again we have four tracks on the EP; stripped back, jacking and melodic grooves that will touch the soul of all true music heads out there.
All tracks written and produced by Matthew Burton, Kate Rathod & Jay Shepheard.
