Holy Bazooka. We just realized last time we had an EP from Romeo was 2011 with ''Clean Slate''. Not just water under the bridge since then; he did grace us with new music from his other projects High Fauve and The Jane Fondas, plus provided some mighty fine remixes. But it's been 3 years since we heard him solo, bringing back his stripped down, yet emotional techno. With ''Des Moines EP'', he gracefully creates an intimate soundscape, a playground for the soul.
We have to admit : local illustrator and animated film director Alexandra Levasseur (alexandralevasseur.com) beat us to the punch when she decided to use track ''ambient 1'' for her latest animated short ''Table d'Hôte''. The result is stunning : the tension in Romeo's sustained synth patch coupled with Alexandra's images build up to a dramatic punch, then soften by the piano outro. It resulted in a Vimeo Staff Pick, kudos les enfants! ''ambient 2'' is best described as minimal techno kissing lyricism on the mouth, while ''ambient 3'' is techno doing it - to lyricism - by behind.
voilà. enjoy.
