Vinyl Only Tracklist: A1 Shattered (Original) A2 Shattered (Instrumental) B1 Elevate (Original) B2 Shattered (Acapella) Info: Mid November will see Retrograde co-founder Marlon Hoffstadt pair up with Paris Brightledge for ‘Shattered’. Following a run of releases for his Retrograde label and a track featured on the 100 Dirt Crew Compilation Berlin based DJ and producer Marlon Hoffstadt continues his upwards trajectory, once again enlisting the services of legendary Chicago vocalist Paris Brightledge who recently collaborated with Paranoid London on their ‘Paris Dub 1 & 2′ records. Stepping up first is the original mix of ‘Shattered’ with Hoffstadt and Brightledge delivered a raw, experimental house feel via broken drums breaks, sweeping synth chords and acidic bass chops, whilst Paris’ vocal stylings add a soulful edge to the record. An ‘Instrumental’ mix of ‘Shattered’ follows and as the name would suggest lays focus on the rhythmic and melodic aspects of the composition, shining light on the swinging breaks, emotive string melodies. Lastly to complete the package is ‘Elevate’ which sees Hoffstadt fuse weighty drums and ethereal pad swells with arpeggio synth leads and subtly unfolding intricacies, whilst Brightledge’s understated vocal contributions further fuel the records hypnotic feel. Marlon Hoffstadt’s ‘Shattered’ is out on Retrograde 18th November 2016.
