They met and recorded regularly for the next couple of years and in late 2009 released the EP SOMESHYTWEDID to wide critical acclaim on blogs like potholesinmyblog.com and whiskeyteeth.com,etc. They followed this up with their sophomore EP Boom Bap And Beyond which also received high-praise kevinnottingham.com, dotgotit.com, rule4080.com and etc.
Retrospek continued to record, putting out singles and working with other artists including fellow members of the Cool Collective Reps Music Group (CCRMG), a local hip-hop collective the trio founded. They also began doing more shows, in Boston and beyond, opening for and sharing the stage with artists such as Pharoahe Monch, Raekwon, Styes. P, Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, Blu, Black Milk, Nat Turner, Oddisee, DJ Premier and Pete Rock.
2012 marks the release of their debut LP, Sleepwalker’s Remedy and Retrospek continues to set the bar higher for themselves with each successive release. They are a group truly greater than the sum of its parts, each individual bringing unique skills and perspectives into the equation. United by a shared appreciation for music and outlook on the craft, especially the decaying state of hip-hop, Retro continues to push the limits, injecting integrity into a music dominated by the commercial and superficial.
