Premiere: Black Forces – Back 2 Black

EP cover (evk)

A follow up to the Atlanta-based producer’s debut eponymous EP in 2020, released on Mike Simonetti’s 2MR Records.

It had been a very long time since he’d come home – he could barely remember the year or season of his last visit. But despite the passing time, little had changed. The same conductor greeted him as the train pulled up to the station; the shop fronts bore the same names and were run by the same faces; and that familiar smell from the bread factory on the corner of town still permeated the air. Even so, there was still a feeling that something was missing, something unexplainable that he couldn’t quite put his finger on… maybe it wasn’t home, maybe it was him that had changed.


Black Forces made his entrance in 2020 with his politically, emotionally-charged eponymous debut. Released via Mike Simonetti’s 2MR imprint, the EP was an introduction to his deep, hazy brand of house and his deftness at crafting infectious energetic beats that stir the mind, body and the soul. His follow up, Black Forces 2, keeps the groove going. Again, finding its place on 2MR, the four-track EP weaves together dusty house jams, shuffling grooves and warm, sultry acid.
