London-based producer Romare has always been fascinated with the blues and polyrhythms, drawing both into his Meditations On Afrocentrism and Love Songs: Part One EPs with great aplomb. There are very producers who can draw in well-worn sample sources like the blues and flip it into something original, but the Paris-born artist manages it without faltering, creating a mélange of contemporary garage, house, techno and footwork with a decidedly rustic edge. Romare’s latest tune comes in the form of “Jimmy”, a direct track based on absurdly twangy guitar and a flexed out techno structure. “Jimmy” can be downloaded for free here and is a promotion for Romare’s upcoming Ninja Tune debut.
