Illegitimate Children "Retreat from the Future"
Miami's Loveless label has a record called Technicolor Horizon on the way from Illegitimate Children, a producer who likes to toy with kind of nostalgic sounds found across a number of early Warp releases. On EP cut "Retreat from the Future," filtered synth pads ebb and flow over the top of a rubbery and playful beat as the artist brings a number of airy vocal samples in and out of his mix. The production is decidedly old-school in its simplicity and relatively patient tempo, but isn't afraid to gradually coalesce all of its core elements—in addition to a bit of extra percussion and slippery touches of low end—for the understated climax. The rest of Illegitimate Children's five-track Technicolor Horizon EP will drop on September 16.
