Since 2005, Serge Santiago and Tom Neville have been slowly cooking a career-defining album... What came out of the studio sessions was a perfect modern day Italo/Disco sound, straight off the bat... This was the birth of the group Retro/Grade.
'Moda' is a taster from the new Retro/Grade album forthcoming 2010.
Serge Santiago and Tom Neville first worked together on a re-edit of Kano's 'It's A War' in 2004, which received stand-up attention in all the right places. This random hook-up led to the idea for an album project, with the intention to create a modern day take on Italo Disco...
Due to their separate schedules - Neville knocked up a remix discography that includes artists from The Ting Tings to The Verve to Britney Spears, whilst Santiago delved deeper into the world of Italo Disco, re-editing the likes of Goblin, Droids and Baciotti, as well as working on his own productions including 'Atto D'Amore' and remixing DFA and Simian Mobile Disco - the project's formation took time... But of course perfect timing.
There are only 500 limited edition vinyl copies available of this release. Coming September.
The next Retro/Grade EP 'ZOID' is coming late November
Retro/Grade album coming early 2010.
