- Local is due out next month, and it'll be supported by touring across North America and Europe.
DJ Tennis will release a double EP in April called Local.
Local will come out on DJ Tennis's Life And Death imprint, and it'll be the first double EP for the artist—real name Manfredi Romano—as well as the label. Described in a press release as a "musical diary," its six original tracks see Romano, who's taken on an increasingly busy gigging schedule over the past couple years, drawing inspiration from six different locales: Williamsburg, New York; Kreuzberg, Berlin (where his studio is located); Milan; South Beach, Miami; Hackney, London; and Palermo, Sicily. He's provided his own vocals as well as bass and guitar work, and first track "Love Child" features an appearance from The Rapture's Luke Jenner. A remix from US producer North Lake completes the package. It'll be made available on double vinyl and as a digital release, with each version apparently "slightly different" from the other.
As you might expect, Romano will support Local with extensive international touring. He'll start in North America with more than a dozen dates heading into mid-April, the first of which is in Boston tonight. Later on he's due to swing through Miami for a handful of shows during WMC, and then on Friday, April 4th, local promoter PL0T will host the double EP's release party, where North Lake is also confirmed. Following a set at Elita 2014 in Milan, he'll head back across the pond for a few more appearances, including a set at the second weekend of Coachella.
After the North American stretch, Romano will return to Europe for even more gigs. There's still plenty of events in the works—in the meantime, you can find tickets to some of the announced engagements over at the DJ Tennis artist page.
