Redject – Retrochrone EP
Redject is an incredibly talented upcoming neurofunk producer out of France, and his Retrochrone EP on Mindtech Records shows us exactly why you should be keeping an eye out for him in future.
Somewhat reminiscent of a less ‘digital’ sounding Xilent, Redject carves out his own unique style. Whether it’s the glitchy stylings of Surface and System Check, or the in your face-ness of Soul Shaker, or the title track Retrochrone, the crisp, tight drums that you’d usually associate with neurofunk are readily apparent, cutting through the mix with pinpoint accuracy.
This is a tough thing to achieve when working with the numerous complex, twisting reece basslines that are the hallmark of the neurofunk genre, by providing the drive in the highly polished 4 track EP that is Retrochrone.
Though it goes awfully hard, this is not to say that Redject does not know how to create tension, as there are enough peaks and troughs to provide impact. Giving life to each track by cleverly using orchestral elements sparsely, they help to provide a deeper experience compared to a Xilent that seems to prefer keeping the energy at 110% all the time.
Each track on Redject’s Retrochrone EP is unique, excellently produced, and well worth the time.
