This Is Our Jam: Fort Romeau, “SW9”

Fort Romeau is the solo project of Mike Norris, who also happens to be the keyboardist for slick British electropop act La Roux. Norris recently released his excellent first album Kingdoms on the ultra-hip Los Angeles label 100% Silk, where he traded La Roux’s smooth synths for hypnotic house arrangements. “SW9” doesn’t appear on that album, but flows with the same sensibility — a comforting, dark piece of deep house with an icy vocal sample coated by the hiss of analog tape. It’s the sort of track you’d want to hear when you're still dancing as the sun comes up. Download the track below. (via XLR8R)
