Romance – Chapters Of Love (JD Samson Remix)
JD Samson of Le Tigre, MEN and so much more, has given the remix treatment to "Chapters Of Love", a song by Romance who are the duo of producer Yung Diamond and Avan Lava vocalist TC Milan. Listen below. It makes its premiere in this post.
About the track, Romance write:
"Chapters of Love" is one of our favorite things we've ever made together, so to have JD remix the track is the ultimate honor. We've been inspired by JD as a musician and human for a long time now so this remix is very special. We can't wait to hear it on the dance floor, especially at JD and Amber Valentine's monthly PAT party in Brooklyn.
JD Samson also told us about her involvement:
First of all, I love this project. Both humans have really positive energy and the music is a perfect modern approach to classic house. When I heard the original I couldn't get the melody out of my head. The content moved me deeply, and I actually reached out to them to see if I could remix it. Sometimes that can be cathartic. While working on the remix, I kept thinking of the melancholy of Small Town boy by Bronski Beat and realized that I could recreate some of the lines from that track to build my remix. I think the reference is pretty cool, and brings the perfect amount of sadness to the content of "Chapters of Love".
The April edition of the PAT party (which Romance have played), happens at Union Pool in Brooklyn on Thursday, April 20 with Samson, Amber Valentine, plus Tim Sweeney, Gabrielle Kwarteng, Guy Williams, Robi D. Light. It's free.
