Fresh from his stark adventures amid 'Heaven & Earth' on Permanent Vacation, Fort Romeau makes his full EP debut on Correspondant with one of his darkest compositions to date; 'DADA'
"Paranoid music for paranoid times," is all the UK artist tells us about the release but it's all we need to know. Relentless, tunnelling and driving; there's a pranged sense of momentum powering both parts as they surge with multiple climactic peaks. So vast it comes in two parts; both are loaded with harmonics and FX that complement each other perfectly for deep mix creativity. Deep, intense and foreboding; even the title tracks are coded with paranoia with their reference to a political anti-war artistic movement 100 years ago.
The remixes add fresh perspectives on Fort Romeau's brooding tableaux; Terr follows up her 'Neuromancer' EP from last year with a bulging electroid thumper that tips a nods towards Black Strobe while Niv Ast adds a series of trippy layers, cascades and cosmic touches you can have just much to during a sunset as you can a sunrise. Just because we're paranoid, it doesn't mean we can't fun... Right?
