romare to play i-D's room 2 takeover at xoyo
We are excited to announce that one of our favourite London producers, Romare, is due to play i-D's Room 2 takeover for the closing night of Simian Mobile Disco's XOYO residency on 20th December.
Born Archie Fairhurst, Romare takes his producer name from Romare Bearden, the acclaimed cut and paste artist whose approach he takes when making music (and apparently album artwork too). With the news that he will release his debut album Projections on 23rd February via Ninja Tune, we highly recommend that you come down not just for a big night out with team i-D, but to get to know the musical collagist himself. Having studied the traditions of African-American culture academically, album tracks will explore this topic in what promises to be a dreamy follow-up to his Meditations On Afrocentrism EP. We'll see you down the front!
