HOUSE MUSIC FLASHBACKS seem to be all the craze these days, echoes of the past creeping in to today’s sounds making for a retro-futurism simultaneously looking back while moving forward. We’ve seen it with Bicep’s massive “Vision Of Love“, George FitzGerald’s addictive “Child“, as well as with Julio Bashmore, Huxley, Nicholas, and a number of others.

Gary McCartney aka Ejeca’s Horizon’ EP out now on Needwant is the latest example, the title track (streaming above) giving the 90s plenty of shine while keeping the groove contemporary for modern dancefloors. While Ejeca recently rose to the popular consciousness with his ‘You / Don’t’ collaboration with Bicep on Aus Music, this latest solo affair further proves his strength as a producer.

“Horizon” is full of 90s goodies, with the “Whoo” samples to the retro keys and drums. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter where the sounds seem to fit appropriately in the linear scale of history – this track bumps, and that’s what’s really real.

You can grab the ‘Horizon’ EP on wax or digitally, so go.
