Romare - Love Songs Part One
A year on from his Mediations On Afrocentrism EP, Romare returns to Black Acre with four frenetic and sample-heavy soul cuts. Paced by a stuttering footwork skip, samples of Peggy Lee's "Fever" loop throughout "Your Love (Give Me Fever)," before breaking out with a tearing sub-line. "Jimi & Faye (Part One)" sticks closer to his roots-orientated output by layering field recordings over tribal rattles, while "Taste Of Honey (From The City)" is a more floor-driven number comprising equal measures of '80s hip-hop and '70s afro-funk. Completing a decent package, "Hey Now (When I Give You All My Lovin’)" is a more blues-influenced inclusion that percussively trudges alongside a lamenting piano and flaring trumpet.
