Romanthony is a a house music rarity, a prolific vocalist and prolific producer. His smooth Jersey garage sound with a dirty Chicago twist transcended the splintering house scene and was featured on a ton of early Azuli records and helped spread soulful house throughout the UK and Europe. If your not up on your dance classics then you may think you’ve never heard dude before, but you definitely have…he did the vocals on Daft Punk‘s biggest of all their big tunes. But regardless of all that, Romanthony this mystery man with roots in Jersey has produced and sang on more house hits than you can count on your hands. You can tell he’s had a major influence on us and here are some of our favorite stone cold Romanthony classics.
Buzzin Cuzzins – Let Me Show You Love
The first time I heard this was on a Derrick Carter tape I got in the mid-90’s. It also had a ton of other dirty garage house classics (like the Morales mix of Black Sheep – Stobelight). I’ll rip that tape soon, cause it’s ridic, but for now you can enjoy this swinging monster that was released on Azuli in 1994 and will still be rinsed heavily forever.
Romanthony Presents Lifestyles – Trust (Wah Trust Mix)
It’s all about the Ghost Mix for stripped down bumpy floor rocking, but the the full filtered dopeness of this mix showcases Romanthony’s amazing musicianship. It was released in ’96 on Downtown161 a longtime distributor and label out of NYC and you can buy one of our copies of the vinyl if you really want to beat it up properly.
Romanthony Presents Nyree – Good Tymz
Cnyce searched for this tune for at least five years. I’m not gunna waste your time with info. JUST LISTEN.
