Steef's Retrofit debut kicks off with 'Ghost Producer.' Infectious motown-esque vocals, energetic piano and a stripped but jacking groove make it ripe for summer dancefloors. 'Como Un Dios Del Olimpo' takes things down a much deeper road - a hypnotic Spanish chant is the guide while a disco bassline chugs under soaring pads and arpeggios.
Australian producer Mic Newman (aka Fantastic Man) of FINA, Freerange, and Murmur takes the original vox and pads, and weaves them into a shuffling, melodic number that manages to sound lazy and low slung while maintaining a direct-to-the-dancefloor feel. On 'Soul of Calypso,' Steef rounds out the package with a percussive workout that still retains an understated musicality about it.
