Released: 5th March 2012 | 5 track nu-disco ep

Hitting the ground running in 2012 Ruben & Ra are taking a break from the studio for the first full artist release on Retrospective. Who's capable hands better to choose for this one than our in house hero Rayko? After bringing Fil Lavin to the ever-growing Retrospective fold for RETRO005 – Soul Brother, featuring Ruben & Ra's Souled Out Dub, Rayko is back with a 4 tracker of edits, which are sure to please.

Already causing a storm on floors across the globe People (Rayko birthday edit) harps back to the sounds of the 80's with big synths, a hypnotic groove & a bassline that can't be resisted. Showing his true colours, Rayko delivers a dubbed out edit of The O'Jays – Heads Together with a full vocal version being this release's FREE 320k download available on SoundCloud. On the flip is Revue bringing some house infused retro boogie swing to the E.P. before a Rayko trademark re-interpretation of Unlimited Touch - Searching To Find The One.

One could say that 2011 was Rayko's year with his hit Broadway being recently announced as the No.1 disco track of 2011 on Juno, but we think that this is just the beginning for him with bigger things to come. Born in the Canary Islands, Rayko is a producer and DJ deeply influenced by the artists and sounds of the 70's and 80's.
These influences led him to launch his own label; Rare Wiri in the summer of 2008, gaining immediate critical acclaim with it's first release making Record of the Week at Manchester's highly regarded Piccadilly Records. Rayko has an impressive portfolio of releases under his belt and has an almost insatiable thirst for editing both classics and lost gems in his distinctive and infectious style. Rayko is also an artist central to the Retrospective All Starrs project, which will feature a variety of names from the slowed down house and nu disco scene. Keep your eyes peeled for a series of double 12 albums & download packs with tracks by current & future Retrospective artists.

"Rayko's guaranteed synth disco sound overwhelms the ep. Pure heavy eighties boogie edit of O'Jays ''Put Our Heads Together'' 1983 clasisic is dope, classic sexy slow mo in the night disco stuff. Ii'm on the plane Unlimited Touch's ''Searching To Find The One'' dub re edit with the extra strong bassline will blow up your mind. Analogue synth's heavy melodies on ''People'' is so euphoric and Prince addicted ''Revue'' put a little bit of funk on the release. Floor Killer."
DJ Nova, Rodon FM
"Love all of the tracks here with a lean towards Heads together as it has been a tune that I have played for many years now and I really dig the edit/remix Rayko has put together here. Searching to find the one is a close second for me. Solid release."
Keith Dalton, Groovement Soul Dublin
