Throwback: Romanthony-Ministry Of Love


Romanthony’s soul flavored house has pulsated in the underground dance scene since the early ’90s. “Let Me Show You Love,” “Bring You Up,” “The House Of God,” “In The Mix” and “Falling From Grace” are some of his essential tracks that some music journalists labeled “new school acid garage.” Anthony Wayne Moore’s observations of James Brown, Cajmere, Prince and disco melds a dance music sensibility promoted by the architect DJs of the genre like the late Ken Collier, Tony Humphries, Frankie Knuckles and Timmy Regisford. “Ministry Of Love” came out in 1995 on the Azuli label is noted for its sleek usage of Loleatta Holiday’s “Love Sensation” funneled inside a rapturous design of splashy cymbals, gospel organs and laconic guitar licks. Mainstream audiences became aware of him when he was a guest vocalist on Daft Punk’s second album Discovery. “One More Time” and “Too Long” in 2001 came long after the New Jersey native had established his reputation on the US underground. Romanthony continues to make music and has released four album projects and numerous singles.
