Tony Allen – Film of Life Remixes by Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer // by Fort Romeau. Out now on 10 Inch.
After releasing his new solo album Film of Life in October 2014, Tony Allen makes a bridge with modern club music through two remixes from talented Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer and Fort Romeau.
House guru Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer present a rework of African Man, in which the germano-chilian pair slowly drags it in a minimalist groovy mutation, spreading their implacable grooveto the rhythm of percussion and brass.
On a relentless pace, shimmering bells come interweave with a strong beat acting on the track like a delightful metronome. Once again, the duet demonstrates their talent here, bringing a personal touch while retaining the original warm and colorfoul soul of the piece.
On B-Side, rising londoner Fort Romeau reveals a new facet of Tony’s piece Go Back, bringing deep graceful and elegant modern discoid rhythm mixed with silky vocals. The piece unfolds and developsitself gradually to envelop us in a gentle and rhythmic house.The languid and dreamy loop galvanized bydeep jerky cuts and captivating synth pads invites us to an harmonious escape.

Vocalist Wayne Snow first appeared on Max Graef’s critically acclaimed debut album from last year
and later his solo E.P “Red Runner” on Tartelet Records. Recently, Wayne featured on French
producer Darius’ Helios EP out April 20th on Roche Music. For this release he’s again teamed up
with Max Graef and team Tartelet.
This second EP ‘Rosie’ delivers a fresh badge of rugged soulfulness over off-kilter chords, body
shaking basslines & dusty beats as Max does best. Combining Wayne’s falsetto vocals with Max’s
beats and production for a record that heralds the sunshine and a spring of cold beers, rowing
boats on the Spree and strong sativa.
