Autonomous Landscapes

by Fort Romeau

The idea was to create an open and evolving musical space, a conversation between synthetic and organic instruments, between composed elements, human improvisations and machine and algorithmic generative processes.


Michael Greene aka Fort Romeau has been busy since his 2012 debut “Kingdoms”, releasing on labels such as Running Back and Live At Robert Johnson as well as having tracks featured on compilations from Rush Hour, Cocoon, Correspondent and Mule Musiq. Since debuting in 2012, British producer Michael Greene aka Fort Romeau has developed a unique take on dancefloor music, fusing elements of house, kraut, ambient, disco, and techno. His love for music and record collecting goes back much further. As a child he would join his father, an avid vinyl collector on journeys to record fairs and jumble sales, digging every weekend from the age of 8 years old. And so it was quite natural that the collector became the DJ and the listener became the musician. Following his first album, Kingdoms (100% Silk), Greene signed to Ghostly International to release 2015’s Insides. Met with considerable acclaim, the album launched Greene into nearly five years of playing and DJing all over the world and regularly at some of Europe’s most revered club spaces. In that time he started his own label Cin Cin, sharing split EPs from established names and newcomers alike and released singles and EPs on labels such as Live At Robert Johnson, Permanent Vacation, Phantasy Sound, and Running Back. His work also appeared on compilations from Rush Hour, Cocoon, Correspondant, and Mule Musiq. In 2018, he self-released the summer anthem “Pablo” hailed a Best New Track by Pitchfork and delivered his first BBC Radio One Essential Mix. While a prolific DJ who orients many of his productions for the club, Greene still sees the album as the ultimate statement of intent, "a space to stretch out, to speak in full paragraphs rather than stunted sentences." Faced with the extended pause to the dance community in 2020, Greene felt compelled to focus on a larger body of work. Embracing a back-to-basics mentality, he amassed over a dozen hours of sounds, asking himself throughout the sessions: “Does the music move you? Is it honest?” He came out the other end with Beings of Light, his most ambitious and complete record to date, a love letter to dance music coded with a message of hope. It arrives on Ghostly in 2022.
