To wrap up 2016, True Romance unleashes one more disco stunner. This time the fabulous three tracks 12” comes from the classically trained yet funky to the bone: Phil Gerus. The Russian producer has been a rising force of the modern disco movement with releases on Futureboogie, Sonar Kollektiv,
Thugboat Edits to name a few. The Make Time EP, his first offering on True Romance, confirms Gerus is here to stay.
The A side, She Is Wearing Her Black Boots Again, is meant to played very loud and very late in a dark smoke-filled room. It’s a raw thumper with a thick post-disco bass line, robotic italo synth, dreamy chopped up vocals all layered with catchy mysterious chords. The flipside starts with the irresistible
Make Time, a groovy number with loopy funk guitars, soulful vocals and infectious keys that will stick to you like glue. For the grande finale, Gerus serves us Detective From Kamakura: a gritty electronic funk track with banging percussions and delirious moans that will keep you awake until the break of dawn.

True Romance label boss Tensnake channeled the disco gods once again and brings us his brand new 3-track Freundchen EP. A frenzied, sun drenched package filled with dance floor magic. The title track Freundchen features a raw and infectious bassline, filtered funky loops, thumping rhythms and blissful vocal stabs all blended into an irresistible disco bomb. A future Tensnake classic, it has been spawning serious contortions wherever it lands. Heavily road tested by the man himself. On the flipside, Tazaar brings the heat up with a killer African groove brilliantly combined with classic house vibes. While No Fool plunges into the depth of the nights going into a darker hallucinatory trajectory with its minimal pumping kicks, dreamy synths and echo-drenched vocals.
