Retrolust is an American electronic pop music duo from San Diego, California. The group was started in 2007 by Garret Kai and Trevor Denounce who, in the same year, rapidly released 3 albums Bad Reception, Pump It, and Wired under the independent label, Nethertune Records. Widely reviewed, the albums and songs were streamed all over the globe, remixed and achieved such honors as editor’s pick on Cdbaby.com and track of the day on the now defunct website, Garageband.com.
In 2008, Retrolust was asked to write a song for VMGN Pictures independent film, “FANTOMAS RESURRECTION”. Shortly after they released their 4th album Stereoroids, their final album on Nethertune Records. Between 2009 and 2010, Retrolust formed a live band, performed a small West Coast tour all around California, received radio play and werefeatured as the track of the day on local radio station. During this time, Retrolust released their 5th CD, BANG!, featuring 5 live tracks and 5 brand new tracks.
In late 2010, Retrolust was asked to write song for VMGN Pictures’ follow-up film, “FANTOMAS IN AMERICA”. After collaborating with the director on several video productions, Retrolust took a hiatus to focus on life, careers and producing other artists. During the hiatus, Garrett wrote and produced a 6th album, MediKation which was released in 2012.
In 2014, Garrett and Trevor made a radical decision to reboot the band by removing and revamping their older music. The duo did their best to wipe away their digital history and start fresh with their latest release, Young Plastic. The album is for sale exclusively on retrolustmusic.com and limited to 100 copies. Digital versions can be purchase on Itunes, Amazon, Cdbaby and through other distributors.
