2x12" Vinyl D
VA aka Jamie Lloyd, Session Victim, Johannes Albert, Reverend G, Kim Brown, Quarion, Mr. Beatnick, Iron Curtis, Robert Oh!
Retreat celebrates its fifth birthday with a very special edition of the infamous "Treats" series! Volume 5 is the labels first double vinyl in a carefully designed gatefold sleeve and features exclusive music from all the Retreat regulars as well as exciting new guests: Session Victim, Quarion, Iron Curtis, Mr Beatnick, Kim Brown, Jamie Lloyd and many more. "Treats Vol. 5" is a fantastic collection of tracks that stands on its own as a compilation while offering some of the most heartfelt House music for 2014 and beyond. "Treats Vol. 5" begins with Jamie Lloyds "Spiro Hustle", a slo-mo burner that will definitely put this talented Australian native back in the limelight after a few years of radio silence. Retreats hottest property, Session Victim, are next up to bat with the dancefloor-approved "Much Too Strong" which sees them experimenting with percussive instruments while keeping their funk firmly in the pocket. The back-to-basics rawness of "Co Co Jam Boo" from Frank Musics Johannes Albert closes the A-side with a bassline that will stay in your head long after the needle hits the run-out groove. Flip the record over for Reverend Gs "Pams Cleavage". The secretive priest is on a mission to save lost souls and his jazz-fueled dancefloor offering should motivate everyone to attend service at the Church Of The Lord Jack in Neukölln! "I Am Batman" from deep house heroes Kim Brown is an emotive ride through Gotham city. Its another fine example of the duos faultless artistry and closes the first chapter of "Treats Vol. 5" in a delightful way. Quarion introduces Retreats first ever C-Side with "Enter Coordinates", a bass-heavy yet uplifting track that promises to reach the confines of the galaxy with the help of gorgeous chords and a freaky arpeggio. Mr Beatnick follows up with the acid-tainted "Hold On To Your Dreams". [txt from ]
