São Paulo’s Phillipi & Rodrigo, otherwise known as Fatnotronic, are gearing up to release their debut album, entitled “Paciencia” on Soulwax’s label Deewee on February 22.

The duo’s trippy video for their new single “Retrogrado” takes you on a psychedelic voyage through the galaxy, with Brazilian star Pepita. Watch it above.
