cut & paste extraordinaire, dancefloor mover and shaker and vibe orchestrator Romare is back with a new 12” featuring two brand new versions of album favourite "Rainbow".

This 12" homage to the halcyon days of the New York discotheques sees the young producer strip the elements of the album version back, dubbing the breathy vocals out, clipping the soulful piano and transforming the cut into a heads down roller for every mainroom. As that First Choice vocal sample reveals itself Romare drops the funkiest, most infectious bassline around and takes us away to a-whole-nother dancefloor! Bluesy guitar licks and moonlight sax snatches add extra layers of atmosphere and lift this way above your typical club fodder. As you'd imagine from the title, the "Bedroom" version is a sensual and sexy audio fantasy, complete with gasps, moans and a slow grinding guitar solo. While not entirely beatless, the thump and bump of the kick is gone, presumably leaving space for your to add your own headboard rhythms. The two edits are complemented by the wild shapes and feelings of an new cut "Love Song". This soulful hybrid of beatdown house and footwork sees Romare top vibrating synths, jangling percussion and soaring bells with a collage of vocal samples, percussive hits and warped melodies. Appropriately, it finds itself right in the middle of Romare’s mood mash-ups - a sweet spot indeed.
