Following on from the Slow It Down & Elijah Collins release comes a new addition to the Retrospective family in the form of Elias Tzikas. Better known for his house music production, Elias has been a global name since 1996 with his numerous productions gaining support from the likes of Osunlade, MAW, Moodyman, Kevin Yost, Joe Claussell, Kerri Chandler & Dimitri From Paris to name a few.

The EP opens with Elias’ Hunt Hurt Hearts which is already picking up heat after being dropped a number of clubs in various Retrospective artists sets blending all the boogie elements that have given Retrospective it’s reputation plus a driving groove. Following is Still Around that gives a flavor Elias’ deep house heritage with it’s vocal sample floating on analogue riffs and a weighty bassline.

Flipping over to side B comes Elias’ take on the BB&Q anthem Dreamer from the 80’s. This sunkist edit created a storm on Soundcloud in the summer and brought Elias to the attention of label bosses Ruben & Ra who quickly snapped it up and delivered the Cat Nap dub to complete the package.

A big thank you to Steve Mill for the mastering on this and all forthcoming Retrospective releases.
