Brand new new label Retrograde presents its RTGD001 in the form of „Won’t Cry“ EP by Matteo Luis & Lo, both part of the imprint’s family. The young Cologne natives offer a warming and moony work from their archives to start the labels catalogue as smoothly as possible.
The original was reworked trice by amongst others, friends of the emerging label as well as long time role models of the label heads Marlon Hofffstadt and Goldberg.
The former delivers a drifty and impulsive close to the floor interpretation of Won’t Cry, whilst buddy Johnjons remix gleams through percussive sequence sounds and a further deep touch.
Besides these two auspicious interpretations, no other than Running Back boss Gerd Janson and fellow Philipp Lauer are highlighting their perspective on the title track in appearance of their renowned and outstanding supergroup Tuff City Kids. The duos’ outcome is an ingeniously constructed rework of Matteo Luis and Lo’s original that never fails to raise euphoria throughout the whole track. Each copy is fully printed with an artwork of Berlin based surrealist Hermann Reimer.
