Greg Cameo – “Room with a View”

The deeply melodic “Room with a View” is a track released today from Greg Cameo, a bedroom producer and multi-instrumentalist based in Vancouver, BC. The artist’s present focus is on crafting “melancholy music for the dancefloor,” — chiefly inspired by downtempo disco. The excellent “Room with a View” is exemplary of that approach, remaining sweepingly melodic throughout alongside a melancholic yearning. The track’s “winner gets it all,” hook soars with spacey, synth-driven mystique. Think Beach House infused with some downtempo disco rhythms. “Room with a View” is a stellar release from Greg Cameo.

“Room with a View” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Shoegaze / Post-Punk / Dream-Pop.
