A humble house music legend, Romero cut his teeth during the heyday of New York’s vibrant scene and has continually proven to be one of the finest advocates of proper house music ever since. Last year alone he released on Cecille, Subliminal, Crosstown Rebels, as well as the Pete Tong/Kolsch approved and Beatport-trouncing ‘Afro Horn’ on Rebellion. That same year he also further cemented his reputation as an infallible remix artist with appearances on Classic and Nervous, not to mention reimaginings of Jack Back & CeCe Rogers ‘Freedom’ on Defected and Danny Tenaglia ‘Don’t Your Back’ on Hot Creations.
This next release on Bambossa is a spectacle as Romero remixes one of dance music’s timeless hit singles nearly twenty years after its release: Basement Jaxx’s ‘Romeo’. A steady house groove propels the track forward, then Romero teases in the original’s signature synth stabs and Kele Le Roc’s diva vocals before instigating an unexpected murky bassline, rattling open hats and sporadic sax.
Basement Jaxx ‘Romeo’ (Harry Romero Remix) drops on Bambossa on 17th July 2020.
