Rome Fortune – “Lights Low” (Prod. Four Tet)
Back in May, we bore witness to an unexpected convergence of the laconic, idiosyncratic Atlanta rapper Rome Fortune and the extremely busy head-expanding British producer Four Tet, who doesn’t exactly crank out a lot of rap beats. That song was called “One Time For,” and it was really good. The same pair has teamed up again for a track called “Lights Low,” on which Rome mutters cool stream-of-consciousness mumbo jumbo over a delicately kaleidoscoping synth pattern. It’s a total chillout tent monster, and you can hear it below.
Let’s cross our collective fingers for more of these; a whole album like this would be choice.
