Ordinary Friends presents Fort Romeau [Extended Set]
It’s our 2nd birthday! To celebrate, we are extremely delighted to announce one of the best producers and DJs on the planet, Michael Greene aka Fort Romeau, to our spiritual home of The White Hotel!
With a back catalogue that spans revered labels such as Running Back, Ghostly International, Live at Robert Johnson and his own Cin Cin imprint, this guy is unquestionably one of the most prolific artists on the scene at the minute.
His most recent release, ‘Pablo’, gives us a euphoric, hands in the air affair that has earned itself high praise and numerous superlatives from the musical world wide web, including ’Best New Music’ on Pitchfork. Two albums deep and with remixes for the likes of Gold Panda, Tony Allen and Lauer, Greene shows no signs of slowing down.
Over the past five or so years he has perfected a sound that draws on a blend of house, kraut, ambient and techno, which has gone on to secure him sets at venues of the stature of Berghain | Panorama Bar, DC10 and festivals such as Glastonbury and DGTL.
And that’s not all. He recently stepped up to the hallowed BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix decks to lay down a stunning collection of deep, melodic selections that to date, goes down as one of thee mixes of 2018.
As is custom on the night support comes from the Ordinary Friends crew, who’ll sandwich the headline set with the usual dose of dark sleazy house, left-field disco, and the far reaches of Detroit techno.
So on the 14th September, join us as we bid farewell to festival season and give a massive welcome to clubbing season, as Fort Romeau and Ordinary Friends bring you a good old fashioned knees up in Salford’s finest defunct mechanics garage.
As always we’ll see you down the front!
