- Words: Glenn Jackson
It's become a bit of a cliché when describing house music, but it's truly hard to avoid characterizing the music of South London producer Pyrenees as "retro-futuristic." The budding tunesmith seems to have a Lone-inspired approach to house, one which indulges in its share of bit-flattened synth tones and nostalgic drum breaks. But by the same token, tunes like "RNA2"—a cut from the man's recently self-released RNA EP (artwork above)—also touch on something celestial in their run, allowing Pyrenees' work to turn a regular old dancefloor cut into a galactic voyage of sorts. Pyrenees' five-track RNA EP is currently available as a name-your-price download via Bandcamp.
