Artist Spotlight

Tony Romera’s decade-plus in dance music is dotted by landmark achievements that prove the French artist’s nuanced and compelling approach to songwriting. Even on early releases like “Don’t You Know” in 2011, his combination of moving melodies and organic basslines make his music feel just as human as it is electronic. His releases run the range of house music's most lauded labels from Armada, Insomniac, and Universal to Monstercat, Cr2, Confession, and his own Sans Merci. He's reached millions of dancers both in the underground and the mainstream. His diverse catalog should be proof enough of how he unites house music fans from all corners of the global dance community. Yet when you look at the list of DJs that have supported him on the mainstages of festivals and darkest of clubs, it becomes even more evident why Romera is so distinctive. The diverse set of DJs that drop Tony Romera tunes in their sets includes Roger Sanchez, Armin van Buuren, Chromeo, Alison Wonderland, and Dombresky. The only tie that binds his fans is that they are all fans of great music, and Romera’s blend of the French house aesthetic, grimy basslines and grooving hooks seems to be genre-fluid. Despite the uncertainty of the pandemic, he used his time away from gigs to embark on his most ambitious project to date. His debut album Introspection on Monstercat is a journey of inspiration for Romera. A genre-blurring album of 16 tracks that drifts effortlessly between heavy electro house, D&B, languid piano interludes, hip hop, and disco-tinged French touch. The album is a look inward at everything that makes Romera the artist he is. It’s a love letter to dance music and an homage to the family, friends, country, and global dance movement he holds so dear.
