Review: Given that the original version of 'The Truth', which was first featured on Fort Romeau's recent album Beings of Light, is an unapologetically ultra-deep, atmospheric and dreamy affair that's extremely immersive and musically detailed, you'd expect Ron Trent - himself a master of the effortlessly deep and sonically vibrant house workout - to do a terrific job of remixing it. He does of course, offering an almost total rebuilt that adds Fort Romeau's wonderful pads and chords to a jazzy deep house beat, undulating analogue bassline, and all manner of fresh musical flourishes. As usual with Trent, it's something of an epic, but the track's 10 minutes seem to fly by. He's genuinely improved an already great track, and few producers are capable of that.
Review: Seven years have passed since Fort Romeau's last excursion, so this typically gorgeous and picturesque full-length excursion is undeniably long overdue. In keeping with the Chester-born producer's now trademark style, the eight-track set sees him add waves of attractive synthesizer sounds, colourful electronics, cascading guitars, dusty samples and loved-up riffs to sturdy but malleable deep house beats. The album's multitude of highlights include bluesy, post jazz-house number 'The Truth', the tech-tinged late-night wonkiness of 'Power of Grace', the sturdy and druggy after-hours chug of 'Ramona' and the dreamy lusciousness of title track 'Beings of Light'.
