Romare Signs To Ninja Tune + Drops Celebratory Track 'Jimmy'

London beatsmith Romare releases free track 'Jimmy' in celebration of his recent Ninja Tune signing.

It's been a minute since London beatsmith Romare first landed on our radar with the seminal Meditations on Afrocentrism, an EP notable for its splicing of archival West African and African American audio samples to amazing effect. After two years of bestowing his midas touch on audiences across Europe, Romare has signed with Ninja Tune and plans to release his debut album through the iconic London label. In celebration of the good news as well as his exclusive mix for UK Radio presenter Benji B, Romare has dropped a new blues-soaked audio-collage. Listen to "Jimmy" below and look out for more spliced and chopped material from Romare coming up.
