Romare: Motherless Child

London-based producer Archie Fairhurst aka Romare (who takes his name from the cut’n’paste artist Romare Bearden) expertly manipulates samples to create new songs—or rather, musical essays—that move the body as much as they do the mind. Keep an ear out for the sample of the African-American spiritual in his slow burning track “Motherless Child.” Romare’s debut album Projections is set for release on 23 February 2015 via Ninja Tunes; also view his self-directed music video for “Motherless Child” that partially pays tribute to John Lennon, who lost his mother at a young age.
