R.I.P. Romanthony


Dance music producer/DJ Romanthony passed earlier this month at his home in Austin, Texas due to complications of kidney disease. Mainstream dance music fans know him as the voice of Daft Punk’s “One More Time” but Romanthony was already known in house music circles for his work in the ’90’s. “Ministry Of Love,” “Bring U Up,” “The House Of God,” “In The Mix,” “Fall From Grace,” “Hold On” and “Let Me Show You Love” were underground anthems for dance music fans who preferred soul instead of cheese in their house. He released a total of four albums and was recently working on music with Boys Noize in addition to having released “2Nite4U” with Kris Menace this year. Electronic Beats magazine interviewed him in 2009 and he talked about his success with Daft Punk and his creative process.
