Boomkat Product Review:
Feted new UK artist, Romare, scales his cut-up, Afro-American-centric sound to a family-sized debut album for Ninja Tune. Elaborating on the deftly woven tapestries of his two 12"s for Black Acre, he continues to pay tribute to Romare Bearden - the seminal American cut-up artist and painter whose work recently adorned The Roots' '…And Then You Shoot Your Cousin' LP - with eleven loosely syncopated and blues-wise grooves. Through the dusty disco of 'Rainbow', or gospel soul with the self-explanatory 'Nina's Charm' he perceives a coherent, if endearingly hazy, line from 20th century African American culture right up to the impressionistic anachronisms of 2015, mixing classic-sounding hooks, natty basslines and swingin' drums with a patina of dub-wise electronics and abstraction. As the label rightly point out, it's a sort of 'Endtroducing' for this decade, or maybe even a Moby's 'Play', subtly updating collage techniques with new-fangled techniques and sonic textiles that could appeal to everyone from your folks to the wains.
