Far From Home, Retoric – The Arrival [Astral Records]

9 min read

Astral Records opens the new year by welcoming Far From Home & Retoric to the label for their first collaborative project. Based in Argentina and comprised of Lautaro Lopez Delgado & Lucas Amicone, Far From Home crafts mystical melodic techno which takes listeners on a journey. The duo's otherworldly sound has found a home on Be Free Recordings, Coalescentia Records, Heinz Music, Sequence Music and more. Astral Records has also been a home for the duo's cutting edge style, making their label debut in 2022 with the well received 'Gates to Atlantis' EP. Meanwhile, Spanish artist Retoric has made impressive strides since first emerging in 2019 with an EP via ARKHAMRA. The Madrid resident has earned the praise of Tale Of Us, The Element and Oostil, while continuing to display sophisticated sound design and memorable musical themes throughout his productions. Now, combining their extensive forces for the first time, Far From Home and Retoric begin 2024 on Astral Records with 'The Arrival', alongside remixes from Paul Anthonee and LORRAINNE.

Beginning with title track 'The Arrival', Far From Home and Retoric put a firm focus on the dancefloor which sets the tone for the release. Full of rhythmic energies and syncopated vocal chants, the trio layer orbiting effects and precise percussive arrangements for a slow burning flow leading into the break. Icy and cinematic in equal measure, the interlude opens up into a vivid landscape of haunted voices and delicate keys, before melting down to a stomping drop and club-effective finale. Meanwhile, the companion piece 'Future' finds Far From Home operating in solo capacity with a dark pulsating journey into the depths of cosmic techno. Arpeggiated fragments, pyrotechnic effects and delicate melodic splashes provide just the right amount of sensory stimulation, while a machine-gun style groove delivers a pneumatic energy for the dancefloor.

The first interpretation of 'The Arrival' is provided by label A&R Paul Anthonee. In addition to being a core part of the Astral family, Paul has achieved global recognition for his far-reaching sound. Tale Of Us, Maceo Plex, Carl Cox, Innellea, Fideles, Kevin De Vries and more have praised his work, while Running Clouds, Steyoyoke, Parquet and UV Noir have been landing spots for his sought-after tracks. Coming off a stellar remix for Melodic Room to begin the year, Paul now returns to Astral with a huge remix of 'The Arrival'. With a backbone of tough kick drums, rolling rhythms and flickering arps, comes a forest of ultrasonic effects and clattering drums for the ultimate club-effective vibe. Trance-inspired themes dominate the main break, building to a sizzling boil amidst a vortex of drums, white noise and clustered vocals, for what results in a huge peak time version that is sure to light up even the most discerning dancefloors.

The release concludes with LORRAINNE making her label debut with the second and final interpretation of 'The Arrival'. Splitting time between London and Madrid, the Spanish artist first emerged in 2020 with a string of well-received releases via ONISM. 2021 would see LORRAINNE make her debut on Astral affiliate Movement Recordings with a stellar remix of 'Kyla' by Paul Angelo & Don Argento. Continuing to build on her success across the next two years, the Madrid resident would go on to make impressive debuts on Radikon and Dear Deer, in turn earning support from Tale of Us, Adriatique, Kevin de Vries, Fideles, Lane 8, Massano and more. Now, as 2024 begins, LORRAINNE adds Astral Records to her resume with a huge rendition of 'The Arrival'. Bringing a techno state of mind, LORRAINNE carefully balances the themes from the original with her own melodic groove-centric sound. Timely vocal gates and striking stabs steal the air atop thunderous beats, chunky grooves and timeless tonal themes, for what results in the ultimate dance floor bomb to round out the release.
