Belfast-based producer Michael Dillon, better known as Maricopa, is someone we’ve been following for quite some time now. Having already impressed us with his quality releases on labels such as Fools & Fables, Tusk Wax and Back To The Balearics, Maricopa is now gearing up for the release of his first mini LP, called “This Was Years Ago”, which also marks the debut release from La Luna, a new label that focus on connecting music and art. The seven-track mini album finds the producer doing what he does best, crafting downtempo house tunes filled with delicate atmospheres, breezy melodies and sun-soaked, Balearic vibes. Here, we have for you two tracks from the upcoming record, “The Call Of The Plains” and “Snow Trace”, which features Exit 47 on guitars.

The “This Was Years Ago” LP will drop on October 28th on La Luna. Pre-order it here.

Sydney/Melbourne trio Retiree, consisting Matt Crowley, Tori Holleman and Marco Vella, have spent enough time together over the last few years that their broad and varied influences blend into a unique emulsion of strongly rhythmic and emotional music. With two superb EPs already under their belt, namely 2013’s debut self-titled 12” on Plastic World and 2015’s “This Place” on Rhythm Section, Retiree make a welcome return with their new single “Continental”. It’s yet another fine example of Retiree’s ever-evolving sound.

In their own words:”‘Continental’ features a field recording of water lapping in a Venice canal. It’s not about Brexit. It is about selfie sticks, love, photo albums and tourism. The song was written in a Venice hotel room, recorded in Berlin and Sydney, and mixed and mastered in Melbourne.”

The single “Continental” is out now through Plastic World. Buy it here.
