[STREAM] Fort Romeau: Phonica Mix Series 15

July 30, 2015

Fort Romeau writes songs that take the classic sounds of Chicago house and reconfigure them. The snatches of gospel vocals remain, as do the insistent rhythms, but the end result is more soulful and spacious. All of those preferences turn up over the course of this riveting 50-minute mix he crafted for Phonica; songs dissolve beautifully into one another, melodies rise and fall but the beat remains driving and propulsive. The result is a perfect complement to his own singular work.
