London-based producer Fort Romeau (a.k.a. Mike Greene) makes his Spectral Sound debut with the single “SW9.”  As GHOSTLY International writes, “It’s a warm and affectionate take on the sound of Chicago house, mixing thick analog pad sounds with a 4/4 kick that’s insistent without ever being overpowering, skittering hi-hat sounds and an beautifully uplifting vocal sample.  The production is lush and multi-layered, giving the track a warmth that’s absent from so much of contemporary dance music. ‘SW9’ is Greene’s first release since his debut album ‘Kingdoms’, which came out last year on most excellent LA-based alt-dance label 100% Silk.  Both ‘Kingdoms’ and ‘SW9’ reflect a deep love for a sound that Greene discovered at 18 and embraced wholeheartedly: ‘I think it’s really important, if you’re in the business of using samples, which I think nearly everyone is, to use them as ways of adding in history and subconscious reference points,’ Greene told SPIN last year. ‘That’s a really interesting aspect of music: you have this ability to take something from the past and put it in the present.'”  You can pick up your own copy of “SW9” by visiting GHOSTLY, and be sure to follow GHOSTLY on Twitter, as well as Fort Romeau on Facebook and Twitter.  Buy it HERE
