Berlin-based house label Retreat takes a bit of a new direction with its 5th release, ditching vintage sounding deephouse for midtempo electronic disco and it works like a charm. Session Victim (who also did a record on Jimpster's Delusions of Grandeur label a while ago) and Drum Poet's Quarion show they can produce more than techy bleeps and squeeks: all three tracks on offer are warm, clever and silky smooth pitched down productions . It's 'Danish Daughters' that stands out for me though, a deep and most pleasant dreamy ride based around samples of Maze's Joy and Pain. Just bagged myself a copy, can't wait to play it out.
