A remix album of Room With A View

Earlier this year, Rone presented his fifth studio album, Room With A View, a return to his musical roots. Creating purely electronic music without any collaborations, it was similar to his early albums and includes key track ‘Esperanza’, an ode to those who keep fighting the good fight, those who have hope and refuse to give up.

In Views Of A Room, Rone is no longer alone, musicians from around the world respond to him from their studios to reinvent tracks from his fifth album. Artists like Maceo Plex, Sutja Gutierrez, DJ Lostboi, Frieder Nagel and Loraine James all contribute to the transformation of Rone’s original tracks. The remix album will be released on the 4th December.


Rone’ second album Tohu Bohu was composed in Berlin and released in 2012. It features international hits like ‘Bye Bye Macadam’ and ‘Parade’.
