About

Harry Romero

"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."

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.

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 his musical range. Harry Romero’s legendary tracks “Cro-Magnon”, “Erectus”, “Tania”, “Night At the Black”, “Beats Vol 1 & 2” and As MongoBonix “Mas Pito”, never leave the playlists of 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.

2016 showed the world that Harry Romero was back and better than ever with releases on Suara, ToolRoom, Circus, OVUM, Tronic, Maya Records and Defected. 2016 has already seen Harry bring back the legendary Bambossa Records and with releases forthcoming on Cajual, Tronic, Circus and more, 2017 is looking like the year that Harry steps it up and reminds us all who the ‘Beat Man’ is.

Testimonials

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.


Craig Kallman

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community. All throughout the 90s I was often getting written about by various high profile mags and websites for having contributed to help break many artists, DJs, producers and remixers. WMC enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof, especially at Groove Jet, where house music officially met Techno in my sets and it’s all been uphill since…TBC
