Not long after supporting Groove Armada on their recent tour, Retro/Grade are in town again. Tomorrow they join headliners Delphic as well as Filthy Dukes, Sound Pellegrino, resident Krysko and Mumdance on the bill for the Warehouse Project’s first attack on The Big Smoke.
Retro/Grade are Serge Santiago and Tom Neville combining their vast experience in the music game. The blend of the downright dirty electro you hear in Pulsar to the italo-disco ringing through in Escape Sequence partnered with the linear laser sequence of two guys crossing the contours of the globe, and only the symmetry of their Mac Books and cheeky nodding heads on show, makes a night with them a memorising spectacle to remember.
Last year their track Moda won support from many a big player on the clubbing scene, with their new single Escape Sequence dropping just the other week on Deconstruction Records and a series of gigs lined up, including December’s Goldfrapp tour, there’s a lot more in the pipeline yet…
Retro/Grade sets come at you hard and fast and certainly aren’t for those unaccustomed to sensory overload. If you’re keen, you can grab your free copy of 2009’s Moda here and we’ll see you down the front at Ewer Street tomorrow.
Here’s a sneak preview of what’s in store:
