HARRY ROMERO makes his debut for Circus Recordings in incredible style
released dec 4th on Digital and limited edition red vinyl.
"I'm the guy pushing to change my sound from record to record...the struggle for most producers is to NOT sound the same every time, which is something not everyone can accomplish", explains the diversely talented Harry Romero. The DJ and producer remarks, “I am always into combining eclectic flavors and bringing new concepts into the studio".
2013 is the beginning of a new chapter for Harry, parting ways with his long time label group Subliminal, after being tied into a ten year deal which now leaves him free to release with other labels, and importantly, returning directly to the beats. Already forging ahead with new releases on, Ovum (under his Vaggio alias), Size X, and Sneak’s I’m A House Gangster among others, here he makes his debut on Circus Recordings.
There is no question that Harry is one of the finest and most accomplished producers in electronic music, a serious beat maker like few others. And a seasoned dj since the early 90’s in New York
Raised in a musical family -- his mother soaked the air with the Latin rhythms of merengue and cumbia, while his father, a former opera tenor, practiced his scales and listened to Beethoven. As a result, Harry is constantly looking to expand musical range.
Historically releasing on such seminal labels like Emotive, Sex Mania, Power Music, and Gossip Records, and producing music for Robert Clivilles
Along with Erick Morillo and Jose Nunez, Harry played a definitive role in laying the foundation for Subliminal, what became one the best-known and most respected dance music labels of the last ten years.
Harry Romero’s legendary tracks “Cro-Magnon”, “Erectus”, “Tania”, “Night At the Black”, “Beats Vol 1 & 2” and as MongoBonix “Mas Pito”, never the leave the boxes of many serious house music dj’s, all standing the test of time, sounding as good and as fresh now as they did nearly ten years ago.
Circus Recordings owner Yousef spoke to Harry about his new music and his departure from Subliminal, visiting him in his New Jersey studio to discuss an EP. Yousef a fan and a person that respected Harry’s body of work for many years, was blown away listening to track after track of Harry’s new material, singing 3 cuts on the spot.
Harry explains The Butcher was born after a night in Ibiza watching Luciano pummel Pacha. Solo Man is nod to mid nineties Harry, and Keep Pushing On is jerky view on bass line 2013. All 3 tracks have nailed Yousef’s dance floors for some months.
The Butcher EP put’s Harry’s name directly back on the underground dance floors, showing the world (once again) Harry is most serious of players
