Manila-based bedroom producer, No Rome has been making waves on his Soundcloud page since last year, making the kind of pleasantly poised and shimmering electro dance-pop jam-packed with instantly catchy hook. Though most of his songs might be relatively short in duration, No Rome has some smart tricks up his sleeve especially when it comes to the creative sequencing and percussion that revel in dense layers and chillwave beats. Much of his recent output – tracks like ‘Heaven’ and ‘i.lost’ are flourished with these elements. His 4-track EP, Fantasy (공상) managed to spark attention at the time it was released – we suppose it’s the melancholy vocals that resonate deeply with listeners matched with the minimalist-styling and electronic-pop flavors. What’s your take?
