FunkSoulNation presents Romare (Ninja Tune)
As 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 and we overjoyed to host his Leeds debut as part of the Funksoulnation clubnight!
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, Huw Stephens and Bonobo, 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.
