Back in wax, Fort Romeau has dished out his first 12" of the year with a deep cut melody on 'Pablo'. Dubbed by Pitchfork as the record of the summer, the British producer strikes the right chord with his standard style of moderate late-night house. The Cin Cin boss is striking out with a self-titled catalog on vinyl and 02 is yet another crate essential.
Painting a psychedelic picture of undersea vibes, the A-side and title track is a journey through melody. Eight minutes of increasing complexity is an after-hours dream as Fort Romeau presents a sustainable dance floor track complete with a catchy keys section realized in a variety of forms. Continuing the theme, backside 'Terracotta' is as organic as the name. Dancing leads create an entrancing framework for warm chords and impactful percussion.
A classic record from an artist whose legacy continues to grow, FR02 is a summer crate essential for late nights in the open air. Made for dancing, this groovy record is a prime example of the Fort Romeau aesthetic.
