If you monitor the house music scene coming out of Hong Kong, a name that you’ve probably heard of before is Romain Fx. For the past 10 years or so, Romain has been a key innovator in the HK scene, spearheading fresh concepts such as Roofest, the island’s first rooftop festival and organizing monthly parties called ROAM in which he brings international artists such as Jayda G, Move D, Habibi Funk, Demuja to the city. Even if you’re not too familiar with what is happening over that part of the world, you might even recognize him from his extensive touring in Europe, where he’s played alongside the likes of Breakbot, Classixx, Kaytranada, College, Kolombo, Gigamesh, LNTG, FKJ, and many more.
In his latest effort, the French musician sets out with his Los Angeles brethren of Fantastic Voyage to release a collection of edits ranging from afro house to obscure disco cuts. The tune we’re premiering for you guys today is an edit of Kamzu’s song Indaba Kabani, which came out of South Africa during the early 90s. For those who love the original, you’ll be happy to find out that RFX pays a lot of respect to it; choosing not to alter the original in a dramatic fashion. Instead, RFX simply makes it a tool that can easily be incorporated in DJ sets for you and me to unleash on the dancefloor! He’s truly doing God’s work here and we thank him for it.
To get your hands on a copy of this and his other Tasty Edits, you can pre-order them here. This baby sets off for sail on December 7th!
