about

A taster to celebrate the forthcoming amorous excursions which make up his second album, Romare aka Archie Fairhurst, presents the single ‘Who Loves You?’. Developing and expanding upon the casual brilliance of his debut, “Projections”, ‘Who Loves You?’ establishes Romare as one of the most exciting, confident and distinctive producers in electronic music right now.

Combining a punk-funk b-line, a disco rhythm, a dubbed-out vocal sample and a hundred-and-one subtle elements you’ll barely notice, ‘Who Loves You?’ is that rare thing – a dancefloor filler with real intelligence and a genuine, low-slung sexiness. Backed by vinyl exclusive track, ‘Together,’ it acts like that half glance across a busy bar which can only lead to one thing: true love.

Romare’s debut, “Projections”, was the kind of critically acclaimed album which a lesser talent might have struggled to follow up. Voted Album of the Year by DJ Mag, it received rapturous reviews across the board, received support from likes of Bonobo, Four Tet and Annie Mac and established Fairhurst as a producer to watch. He seems to have shrugged off the pressure this could have caused, though. ‘Love Songs: Part Two’ instead shows him expanding, deepening and developing his techniques. An original reaching the height of his game, it’s time to listen… and fall in love.
