WHO IS PHIL RETROSPECTOR?

“The mashup-producer with the best handle in the game”

- John Sakamoto,Toronto Star Anti-Hit List

“RetroSpector elevates mashup to an Artform”
– Bob Duskis, Six Degree Records

Phil RetroSpector is an audio-visual artist. Widely regarded as the ‘undisputed master of melancholy’, his eclectic and cinematic style has taken this global underground scene by storm. This reclusive figure mixes emotion rather than beats, stretching the very fabric of popular music (from Hi-Brow to Lo-Fi),to new and exciting contextual arenas. His debut audio sampler, Intro/Version is a sonic journey featuring moody bootlegs & haunting remixes of Johnny Cash, David Lynch, Charles Bukowski,via The Beatles & Muse. He is currently producing original audio-visual artwork for Absolut Art Collection.

Suggestion:
Heaven 17 “Let Me Go” music track supporting something you dream up for vocals. I love the story behind the original, Im going through it myself. Very melancholy right now. Maybe something feminine, futile, unforgiving?

I’m sure you’ve heard this many, many times but… Your work is brilliant! I recently joined SoundCloud and was listening to a friend’s work there and began to look around. Your name caught my eye and so I thought I’d check you out. I started listening to the Melancholix Anonymous Mix and I’ve been hooked ever since. I take long walks and your music makes me lose myself. Thank You!

Sincerely, Mauro
