Northwest-native and fan-favorite R0ME is making the summer of 2015 one to remember. Hailing from Tacoma, R0ME released his third EP, Mosaic, and performed at Paradiso Festival at The Gorge last month. Following up two diverse, bass-centric EPs toward the end of last year, R0ME is continuing to flaunt his ability and willingness to take on new sounds and go in alternate directions. His previous releases, Brainstorm and Winter Solstice, featured hybrid trap, dubstep, drum & bass, and more throughout his original works. Now, with Mosaic, R0ME sets his sights on drum & bass.
With an intensified focus on a drum & bass, R0ME showcases his already impressively polished sound with a variety of takes on the genre. Ranging from the more ambient and chill end of the spectrum to the darker, more energetic side, R0ME goes at drum & bass from all directions. It sounds as though, within the wide realm of bass in which R0ME has played, that he’s found his niche.
We massively enjoyed R0ME’s Paradiso B2B set with fellow Northwest-favorite and Washington State University-alum Treyis, as we always do when they get together. The duo have performed alongside each other more than a few times now, wreaking havoc at Foundation Nightclub on a regular basis while also finding their way to massives like Paradiso. They’ve already featured on bills with artists such as Apashe, Dirtyphonics, and more this year, and we’ll be there for what the rest of 2015 has in store.
