Roman Perry Sends Up A Loving Tribute To Bowie With His Cover of “Fame” ft Clans
Nick Hailer

It’s always hard when the world loses a truly unique soul. Since the passing of music legend David Bowie, the out pour of appreciation and tributes by artists and fans alike have really shown the true impact of his life and work. His influence transcends generations and genres as people from every creative community showed their love for Bowie in their own way. In the dance music community, we’ve heard Lido’s send up a salute with his “Space Space Oddity” mix, now up and coming LA by way of Boston producer Roman Perry has released an amazing cover of Bowie’s classic hit “Fame” with the help of vocalist and co producer Clans.


You might remember Roman from his glitch hop twists on “Jungle Boogie” and Queen’s classic “Fat Bottom Girls”. Now, he takes his sound to the next level by making an amazing cover with fellow up and comer Clans out of LA that I’m sure Bowie would’ve appreciated. They combine their style to produce a bouncing synth poppy bassline with lots of distortion, funky wa-wa pedal infused guitar riffs and crisp sounding drums. They lay down an amazing instrumental for Clans outstanding vocals to go in over which then flows seamlessly into shredding guitar solos and a banging bass drop.

This is Roman’s biggest undertaking yet and took a lot of courage to put together. Coming from great rock’n’roll lineage he comes from while also taking his passion across the country to attend production school in LA, making sure that he payed full respect to Bowie with this cover was of the utmost importance. He pulled it off perfectly with the help of Clans (Who you should really check out in the links below). It’s got excited to see where he goes next with his unique style.


The song is out now for free download make sure to get that, send one up to Bowie with love and turn those speakers up!

I've been called "The Male Oprah Of DJ's", "The Mayor of Camp Bisco", and just plainly known and described as "That Is SoNick". Former member of the EDM/Mashup group Pulse FX (featured twice on ThisSongSlaps), I now spend my days soundcloud diving for new tracks at my full time job, frequenting concerts in the winter until it's festival season in the summer, and taking full advantage of my wife's family and friends discount at Guitar Center. Doesn't matter if it's a Glitch Mob show or Chadwick Stokes, you will most likely see me holding court in the smoking area or side stage talking endlessly on all things music. From everything to new tracks, new artists, production methods and performance styles, I have an opinion on everything and I have no problem sharing it.
