Fort Romeau "SW9"
- Words: Nathan Albert
UK producer Fort Romeau just dropped his debut LP, Kingdoms (pictured above), via LA-based left-field house incubator 100% Silk. "SW9," a non-album track premiering on XLR8R today, continues in the vein of that full-length's subtle, lo-fi approach to infectious deep house. Fort Romeau's production tumbles along for four and a half minutes in a swirl of fat analog synths and syncopated hi-hats, all of which is cradled in an ever-so-light tape hiss—giving it a warm and approachable texture.
