RETROGRAMME is a Washington DC area electronic music act whose 2008 debut album cultivated a underground buzz in the area with its beautiful atmospherics and considerably wide-range of electronic progressions from industrial rock to ambient soundscapes. Rob Early, the principal synthesist and programmer, and Nikk Allen, the primary songwriter, have a musicianship that is similar to that of New Order, Underworld, and classic live electronic acts. This is not another laptop act but a band blending tight programming with live instruments spanning genres from industrial to aggressive pop. Their new release on Octofoil Records, Season of Scars EP, is a dark electronic release.
Retrogramme have been twice featured on BBC6's Tom Robinson's Introducing series, and have been reviewed in several electronic/gothic-based music magazines including ReGen, Side-Line and Dark Grave. Their music is also currently streaming on several web radio stations including EBM-Radio, and have been featured in several podcasts including Sony's AcidPlanet WaveForm.
