After becoming completely entranced by RY X at his live show a few weeks ago, I've found him popping up all over my music radar. For all my trivia fans out there, this illusion of frequency is called the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon. You're welcome.
At the show, his original version of "Deliverance" caught my attention more than the other songs given it's steady beat and dance potential. Imagine my excitement at discovering Fort Romeau answered my prayers with a smoothly executed remix.
Without disparaging the ethereal, exuberant breathlessness of the original, the French house producer builds a structure around the beautiful simplicity of the vocals. Using 4-on-the-floor beats, and erratic, spacey synths, the track has an almost trance-like feel to it.
Get ready for RY X's album Dawn out May 6 and show Fort Romeau some love here.
