Retreat will celebrate its fifth birthday with a compilation and European tour.
Treats Vol. 5 is made up of nine previously unreleased smoky house tracks from the Retreat family, plus a few newcomers. Presented across a double-vinyl pack, the contributors include Mr Beatnick, Jamie Lloyd, long-time label associate Iron Curtis, and debutants Johannes Albert and Kim Brown. Label co-founders Session Victim and Quarion also appear.
Session Victim (and some other artists associated with the label) have planned a seven-date tour to coincide with Treats Vol. 5's release. It will kick off at Berlin's Prince Charles next Friday, April 11th, and land at clubs in Dresden, Leipzig and Zürich by the end of the month. May 9th will see the pair spin at Golem in Hamburg, after which they'll close out the tour with appearances at Corsica Studios in London and Badaboum in Paris on May 16th and 28th respectively.
