Romare – Gone
Written by Toby Taylor on 4th September 2019
Romare’s first release in nearly two years represents his most intentional and direct nod to the dancefloor to date.
Having spent nearly two solid years on the road since the release of his previous record, the well received Love Songs: Part Two, the artist still managed to find the time to construct a new recording studio and record both this track, and the flip “Danger”. As Romare himself explains, the tracks were recorded “whilst watching the seasons change from winter to summer in the new studio set up in the garden”.
“Gone” is undoubtedly influenced by those experiences on the road, where Romare played a diverse selection of venues ranging from Berghain/Panorama Bar to Terminal 5 and Output in New York. Its menacing bassline and soaring piano stabs ensure that whatever the setting, it’s sure to get people moving.
“Gone / Danger” is out 27th September 2019 on Ninja Tune.
