Fort Romeau hits the road in October / November throughout UK/Europe and USA.
Continuing on a path of dancefloor elegance is London’s Fort Romeau (née Mike Greene) with two new tracks on Ghostly International. Fluid and full of versatile and organic instrumentation, “Jetée” is fit for both large soundsystems and epic summer travels. The b-side, “Desire,” has a kinetic, classic acid handclap under a kaleidoscopic house rhythm. As a whole, it’s more laid back in BPM than Greene has previously offered, but spotlights his songwriting ability. Building a context that makes his love for house music all his own, Fort Romeau’s debut single on the Ghostly roster (recently released the ‘SW9′ single on Spectra Sound) is a step in a bigger direction with a more nuanced approach.
Fort Romeau’s debut for Ramona and her Live at Robert Johnson audio enterprise couldn’t be any better. A London resident and leading member of the current Ghostly International family, Fort Romeau’s take on neo-dance, post-disco and proto-house is as unmistakable as it is dreamlike.
