Today we present to you our latest roster addition:
Retrospective For Love: Hip Hop, New Soul, Dub 7-piece band based in London.


Retrospective For Love’s sound has been likened to the soothing soul of D’Angelo, tripping on the heavy grooves of The Roots, and perhaps tangled in the immaculate experimentation of Robert Glasper.
Hailed from the sun-drenched Mediterranean island of Sicily, vocalist, rapper and producer Davide ‘Shorty’ Sciortino (3rd at ‘X-FACTOR ITALY 2015’)  had a vision to bring back the love. Gathering a tight knit family of similarly soul-centric musicians from his homeland, along with superbly poised Parisian co-vocalist Leslie Phillips, they formed Retrospective For Love London-side and a special force in music was born.  
Retrospective For Love are a seven-piece band weaving together undeniable, infectious melodies stretching across the stratosphere of Hip-Hop, Soul, and Jazz styles, whilst adding a little 21st century electronic mastery into the mix. Bringing a laid back, comfortable cool to the stage, live performances reach out and grab the spirit – with a dynamism and natural ear for dance floor groove sitting alongside classic romanticism.
Akin to the sound D’Angelo might make tripping out on the heavy grooves of The Roots whilst intoxicated by Robert Glasper’s experimental spirit, Retrospective For Love take the energy of their influences and move it in new directions. Seemingly innocuous lyrics mask tales of love’s most elating and harrowing extremes, capturing the good times, the bad times and all the confusion in between.
Played out as a symbiotic creative collective of enlightened minds, the tone is always optimistic – forever wedded to pure aural bliss and classic entertainment.
A satisfying new sound for a fresh generation of soul lovers.
