“Moda” is a taster from the new Retro/Grade (Serge Santiago and Tom Neville) album due next year. This thing is causing all sorts of buzz and rightly so. Testimonials below say it all.
Trevor Jackson: “Moda” is without a bloody doubt THE record I’ve been playing over the past year that everyone says ‘what the fuck was that’ a totally destructive monster of a record that never fails to ignite a crowd into spasms of riotous rapture or force deaf and dumb wallflowers to exit the building
Groove Armada: yes digging this, its exactly what you’d expect from a serge santiago vs tom neville prod. sounds super crisp, with a havey slab of euro disco-ness, and unlike much else out there right now. nice.
A-Trak: “Moda” is one of the most unique tracks of 2009 for me. A true standout. Although I confess that I’m not even sure where the downbeat is and where the bars start, I still love playing it. Big support!
the Diogenes Club are Matt and Paul Giles. Before the two met, Matt produced a number of EPs and remixes as the Diogenes Club for Urban Torque. “Do You Know How To Feel It?” is the first release to feature Paul’s contributions. Pete Tong has already made it a ‘Calm before the storm’ track on his Radio 1 show. Its the most uplifting and dance floor friendly of the four new tunes on the upcoming EP to be released on September 21st.
