Ninja Tune is very proud to announce the signing of Romare. One of the most exciting British talents to emerge from the electronic world of late, Romare s music combines a seriousness of intent with a thrilling immediacy.
The discovery of revered American collagist Romare Bearden whilst at university became a lightning bolt moment, as is revealed by the moniker he chose for himself. More importantly, Bearden s collages inspired the young musician to pursue a similar technique in his productions, harnessing its power to illuminate and assert through re-contextualisation.
With two vinyl EP releases on the excellent Black Acre label - 'Meditations on Afrocentrism' (2012) and 'Love Songs: Part One' (2013) - fiercely supported by the likes of Benji B, Gilles Peterson and Huw Stephens, Romare s music has, rightfully, already caused a stir.
A true artist, Romare's music moves the mind as much as the feet, its sense of detail married to its mood, melody and passion. A new collage-based track - 'Jimmy' - is available as a free download from his website to celebrate his exclusive mix for Benji B on BBC Radio 1.
