Romans is the collaborative alias of Gunnar Haslam and Tin Man.
Having both accrued considerable praise for their solo work- Haslam for his cerebral contributions to L.I.E.S and Delsin, Tin Man for his romantic acid excursions- the duo decided to link up following a chance meeting in at The Bunker in New York. Loosely posited as a machine-music portrayal of their namesake’s empire era, the two Romans EPs to date saw them merge their styles into murky but uniquely emotive offerings.
With a full-length LP entitled Valere Aude due out next month on Bunker’s in-house label, Romans have eschewed the typical promo mix format an instead constructed a tribute to Finnish techno pioneer Mika Vainio, whose work as Ø and as one half of Pan Sonic can be felt in Valere Aude’s rumbling acid lines and sparse atmospherics.
