Romare

Archie Fairhurst, better known as Romare, studied African American Visual Culture and had his "Sex Pistols moment" when he came across the work of Romare Bearden. The African American’s collaged, cut’n’paste artworks inspired the young musician to apply a similar technique to music – an approach that was hugely fruitful, and remains central to his work today. After stints as a drummer and guitarist throughout school and university, he moved to Paris where he picked up the turntables and began mixing his own music with samples from second hand records. Romare the musician and the template for his debut record was born. The artist released Meditations on Afrocentrism in 2012, one year later Love Songs, Pt.1 followed. Romare works together with the label Ninja Tunes, where he released among others the album Projections in 2015. The album Home was released in 2020.
