Michael Greene aka Fort Romeau returns to Ghostly International with his new single ‘Ramona’. The track, his first on the label since 2018’s SPC-140 EP, sees Greene incorporate elements of classic minimal house into his dreamlike and evocative take on dance music.
As an integral artist on the Ghostly International roster, Fort Romeau has released a cluster of records on the influential label; most notably his 2015 sophomore LP Insides. The critically-acclaimed album was inspired by an eclectic mixture of house, kraut, ambient and techno, and demonstrated development of Greene’s unique interpretation of dance floor music. In the years since its release, the composer, producer and DJ has focused his energy in several directions: he has performed all over the world at some of Europe’s most illustrious club spaces and dedicated time to producing standout remixes for the likes of Jacques Greene, Ela Minus, Alt-J, Gold Panda and many more. 2015 also saw him set up his own label ‘Cin Cin’, releasing split EPs from established names and newcomers alike, with a diverse musical policy that reflects the DJ/producer’s open-minded and inquisitive approach.
Greene had one of his most accomplished years to date in 2018 with the release of ‘Pablo’, an uplifting anthem that Pitchfork dubbed his “finest work to date”. In the same year, he also delivered his debut, Essential Mix, for the prestigious BBC Radio 1 series after Pete Tong made the track his Essential New Tune. Across his near-decade-long career, Fort Romeau has released EPs and featured on compilations for labels such as Running Back, Live At Robert Johnson, Rush Hour, Cocoon, Correspondent, Mule Musiq, and most recently Phantasy Sound with his hi-energy rave edit ‘FWD NRG’ that dropped earlier this year. Now with over 15 million plays across his catalogue on Spotify, Fort Romeau has spent the past ten years carving out his own space within dance music and has cemented himself as one of the most revered names in the industry.
