"With something for everyone, Retrofette makes music that will make you want to bust out the tracksuit, dust of the Delorean, and dance.” –Bandwagon Magazine August 2016

Denver-based Retrofette is the byproduct of keyboardists Sean Culliton and Xavier Provencher's love for vintage synthesizers and sweaty dance floors. Joined by synth bassist Ben Weirich and drummer Dylan Johnson on stage, the quartet’s brand of 80s tinged synthpop was born in March 2016 and has since garnered a steadfast following.

Since its inception, Retrofette released its debut three song I Don’t Mind EP and shared the stage with acts such as Magic Sword, Fever the Ghost, Mark Mallman, and The Other Black. They have played in front of sold out audiences at Denver’s Hi Dive, listed as one of 303 Magazine's top bands at the Underground Music Showcase, and selected as the Best Pop of 2017 act in Colorado by Westword Magazine.

Motion Trap makes sonic exploration dance music. An escalating interplay between electronic-tinged riffs, infectious melodies, and rhythmic muscle leads to a state of wonder. Dreamy, but not hazy, more like the feeling of being in the moment and letting it all wash over you. All while the beat forever propels you forward.

While 2016 included a national tour in support of their debut full-length 'PALEBLUEDOT', time as the backing band for Turner Jackson's Red Plastic Cup, and various other collaborations, 2017 promises to be an even bigger year for the band. The project recently found new life as a duo and has a fresh sound they are eager release.

The first release off of Motion Trap’s upcoming full-length, Molecule is the culmination of 18 months of composition, recording, and production. "Molecule is a summer dance track showing a love for throwback analog synths and an attention to melody. The song and the youtube video are exactly the aesthetic we imagined while creating the track even in its earliest stages." The band is currently working on a video for their second single to be released early this summer.
