New on Plant Music is John Roman’s Sala EP. Never heard of him before but there is a spartan tribal track for you to download. War Drums. Does what it says on the tin. Impressive.

John Roman – War Drums

Blurb: In just a short amount of time with only a handful of tracks, John Roman has emerged from the pack of young DJ/producers as one to watch. His skilled production belies his youthful 22 years of age with masterfully crafted tracks that borrow from electro, tribal, jackin’ house and techno. This year, we have seen the convergence of Roman’s multiple production personalities – his dark, aggressive electro-futurism mixed with his raw, infectious tribal rhythms, creating a style truly all his own.

His debut release on Plant is the much-anticipated “Sala” EP with “War Drums” on the b-side. “Sala” is a relentless, driving track whose strength is its sparseness, in essence an arrangement of drums, tuned percussion and some carefully selected noises, peppered with a Portuguese vocal sample that injects a dash of exotica – effectively tribal, yet minimal. Remixes come courtesy of NT89, Mom & Dad as well as Zubi from NROTB. “Sala” has already gotten enthusiastic support from many top DJs including Fake Blood, who quoted “You can’t not dance to this”, Brodinski, Congorock, Chocolate Puma, Carte Blanche (Riton + DJ Mehdi) and Laidback Luke, who included it in his most recent Essential Mix.
