fort romeau - fairlights (12inch vinyl)


ARTIST // fort romeau
LABEL // running back (de)
CAT // rb056ep


Concept record alert! Fairlights by Fort Romeau is a tribute to the -- technically minded readers might raise an eyebrow -- Australian computer musical instrument that people like Peter Gabriel, Herbie Hancock, or Kate Bush fell in love with during the late 1970s and early 1980s. If Fort Romeau's 2015 Insides album is like painting with oil, Fairlights is like drawing with permanent marker -- to quote the man himself. All based on the word "Saku," these tracks form an epic journey evolving around heartbreaking dancefloor romanticism, jaw-breaking beat exercises, life-affirming ambient digressions, and a general feeling of spring fever.
