Following the release of his sophomore “Insides” LP for Ghostly, UK producer Mike Greene, aka Fort Romeau, lands on Gerd Janson’s Running Back label with a cracking new EP called “Fairlights”. The five-track record of heart-breaking dance-floor romanticism is dedicated to the infamous Australian Fairlight CMI (Computer Musical Instrument) that people like Peter Gabriel, Herbie Hancock or Kate Bush fell in love with during the late 1970s/early 1980s. Our favorite cut from the EP is “Saku”, a great tune that has been on repeat on our car stereo. Give it a spin above.

Fort Romeau’s “Saku” is out now via Running Back. Get it here.

Having impressed with a string of quality releases, not to mention his superb 2012 debut LP “Kingdoms” on 100% Silk, UK producer Mike Greene, aka Fort Romeau, is back with a new album called “Insides”, which will drop on March 31 via Ghostly International. “Playing in those clubs definitely had an affect on how I approach composition and pacing. I want to allow things to breathe and develop gradually over longer track lengths, rather than cram everything into four or five minutes,” says Fort Romeau.

Our first taste of “Insides” is the slow-burning title track, a perfect example of Fort Romeau doing what he does best. The 8-track album, which also features a collaboration with Irish musician/producer David Kitt, aka New Jackson, is now available for pre-order.
