Romanthony (real name Anthony Moore) was an American disc jockey, producer and singer. He was best known for his work with French duo Daft Punk (he provided the vocals for ‘“One More Time” and “Too Long” on their Discovery album).
Romanthony’s work crossed several genres including house, R&B and Hip hop. Tracks like “Hold On” make extensive use of sampling with a distinctly soulful house feel, while the later “Bring U Up” uses a James Brown style breakbeat.
Romanthony appeared on Black Male Records (his own label), Roulé, Azuli, Play It Again Sam (PIAS) and Glasgow Underground Recordings.
Quême discussed his history with Daft Punk, detailing their early collaborations in the early 90s. In regards to Random Access Memories, Quême revealed that NASA supplied the group with access to audio of past space missions to use on the album. According to NME, Gene Cernan (Apollo 17′s celebrated Last Man On The Moon) is sampled on “Contact”. — consequenceofsound
