Longstanding Washington D.C. DIY party starters ROAM will launch their new label, ROAMANCE, on 2nd April with the release of Lisa Frank & Rez Ekbatan’s ‘Whisper’
Having been running off-the-grid parties in warehouses, garages and even church cathedrals in D.C. since 2013, Lisa Frank’s parties have become vital for the city’s underground. Now, with the launch of a label, the goal is to platform music that is in keeping with the party’s ethos of “is "unconventional club music, for unconventional spaces".
‘Whisper’ is a collaboration between Lisa Frank and fellow D.C. producer Rez Ekbatan. They describe the tracks as an “homage to the early-mid 1990s club sounds of Miami Bass, Atlanta Bass and Freestyle”. It’s a fitting ode, with enough distinct flare to give it a life of its own, its whispered vocals and buzzsaw bass making for a sharp, gripping listen. Check it out below.
The track comes paired with six killer remixes from Ariel Zetina, Juana, Jasmine Infiniti, Tonal Theory, Outputmessage and Jett Chandon.
