That's absolutely nuts. A seven-part combo? My only advice would be to time it by ear. You press the push button right after you hear the dashing sound. If that is what it takes to get platinum on Retrieval then the game developers have some explaining to do. I got within six seconds using regular old jump-jump-dash-push and didn't even know that you could stay in the air longer than that.
I just started a new thread about the trials and I would love to hear how you got Platinums in almost everything else.
EDIT: OK I figured it out. It's just a four-part combo: Dash-Jump-Dash-Push, but you have to be right on the edge of the platform when you start it. You use it to skip the moving platforms and just go straight from one static platform to the other. Also, the secret to getting enough distance on the dash-push is to wait to press the push button until the end of the dash. You can still perform a dash-jump-dash-push and come up way short if you perform the jump and the push parts too soon after the dashes because they limit the dash distance. But hey you may have already figured this out. If so, just disregard this post. If not, good luck.
