Surplus to only a small selection of other potential artists, Rommek’s name had been floating about since the beginning of the process. As we were closing in on the test press deadline, we decided to reach out to see if there was a darker driven side to his sound that could really compliment the release, with such a strong tone carried across the board from visual aesthetics through to the releases sound palette we were attempting a hail-mary type execution.
It was incredible then, when we received the first version of ‘Surrender Yourself’ – a track that we feel defines as much of our label’s sound as it does Rommek’s. Everything had aligned with just 6 weeks until mastering and it seemed only right to invite him to join us for the upcoming mastering session at Alchemy.
In September 2017 we headed down to London for a sit in mastering session with Matt; a professional and organic audio experience that won’t soon be forgotten, and the first of many future sessions at this incredible mastering studio.
For me, it wasn’t until this point that it really felt real.
