Fort Romeau writes songs that take the classic sounds of Chicago house and reconfigure them. The snatches of gospel vocals remain, as do the insistent rhythms, but the end result is more soulful and spacious.

The result is a perfect complement to his own singular work.
On Friday, August 14th from 8:30pm – 1:30am at Upstairs at Ace Hotel Downtown LA, Ghostly International will be taking control of Drip’s Creator Session series.
