Today I’m talking to certified house legend, Harry Romero.
Having helped define the sound of the legendary Subliminal Records before launching his own Bambossa imprint, Harry Romero is an undisputed heavyweight of house music.
But even with a string of classic records to his name, Harry’s success lies not in his past achievements, but in his constant reinvention…
His ability to understand and adapt to changing trends in dance music, without blindly following them, is what has put him at the very top of his game and release tracks on labels like Crosstown Rebels, Hot Creations, Suara, Toolroom and Defected.
In this interview we put the microscope on his creative process, the importance of being selective about the gear you use, how to stay relevant without compromising your sound, plus his take on some of the current issues facing producers in 2021.
If you’re a producer who wants to learn from the very best on how to stay true to yourself, whilst adapting to fit current tastes, then this episode is a gold mine.
