Fort Romeau Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Ghostly International sub-label Spectral Sound (Matthew Dear, DMX Krew) are promising that there’ll be no re-press of this new Fort Romeau EP, so best get SPC-140 while it’s still hot. Not that you needed any incentive, mind. FR’s on a hot-streak at the moment - his single ‘Pablo’ was recently named ‘Best New Music’ by Pitchfork - and it continues with these three tracks of melodic, moody tech-house.
- Vinyl 12" (SPC-140)
- Limited edition
Two cuts from producer Fort Romeau, commissioned by DGTL Records in order to represent the label / festival. Untitled II and A Familiar Place are both big house kickers, and they really simmer and team with details: listen closely and you’ll keep hearing fine elements rising to the surface. 12” release on DGTL.
Split 12” release from two of Cin Cin’s favourite producers, released to coincide with the label’s first birthday. Two tracks apiece from Bezier and Fort Romeau, each creating bespoke party pieces for dramatic house lovers. Purify / Korgs is packed with punchy kicks and smoke-and-mirrors synths: happy birthday!
Three tracks from Gold Panda’s recent full-length Good Luck And Do Your Best have been handed over to guest producers so that they can work some remix magic. John Roberts and Daisuke Tanabe share one side of the 12”, while Fort Romeau fills up side one with his take on ‘Time Eater’. These Good Times are out on City Slang.
Fort Romeau drops 3 new ones on the Live At Robert Johnson label, following on from past releases for Ghostly International, Spectral Sound and 100% Silk. Secrets & Lies is a dreamy set of dancefloor undulations, seducing the listener’s pleasure centres with oozing efficiency. 12” vinyl, DJ-ready.
A collection of remixes titled 'Frankfurt Versions' based on Fort Romeau's experiences of dj'ing in the cities Robert Johnson nightclub and named after the fact that the remixers are all linked to Frankfurt one way or another. Four like minded, but distinct producers, Roman Flugel, Tuff City Kids, Orson Wells and Massimiliano Pagliara deliver a range of treatments. A complex take on 'Insides', 'Cloche' getting a beefy 'club' remix with 'Lately' and 'All I Want' given bassline riding refixes.
The sophomore release from UK house diva Mike Greene promises more pillow-stuffed loveliness floating over four-to-the-floor beats that'll probably send you completely Plato in the middle of the dance floor. He's a (presumably) self-confessed practitioner of "slow listening", so if you want to know what the hell that means then get this.
