Romare – Love Songs: Part Two LP

Romare_DilPatel.jpg

A taster to celebrate the forthcoming amorous excursions which make up his second album Love Songs: Part Two, Romare presents the single Who Loves You?. Combining a punk-funk b-line, a disco rhythm, a dubbed-out vocal sample and a hundred-and-one subtle elements you’ll barely notice, ‘Who Loves You?’ is that rare thing – a dancefloor filler with real intelligence and a genuine, low-slung sexiness.

Developing and expanding upon the brilliance of his debut Projections (voted LP of year in DJ Mag and supported by likes of Bonobo, Annie Mac and Four Tet), Love Songs: Part Two cements Romare’s reputation as one of the most exciting, confident and distinctive producers in electronic music. His sample sources have changed a little too, moving from the jazz and blues which distinguished Projections to disco and psychedelic. His parents love of Irish traditional folk music, which Romare grew up with have also influenced the sounds on this album.

“I’ve tried to cover different areas,” Fairhurst explains, “from sexual urges to tender first encounters, from affairs to the questioning of one’s love.” Whatever Romare does, though, it’s held together by his own unique aesthetic, a sonic signature which stamps everything he does as his and his alone. An original reaching the height of his game, it’s time to listen… and fall in love.
