Romanthony "Let Me Show You Love" (2013 Remixes)
Following on from the much hyped (plays on Tong/Mosca/Todda T shows) and big selling re-works of "Bring U Up", Glasgow Underground dust off "Let Me Show You Love", arguably Romanthony's biggest club hit (outside of "One More Time", and hand it over to Gerd, Oliver $, Gavin Herlihy & Laura Jones, Mia Dora and label owner Kevin McKay for some 2013 touches. This 12” features Oliver $, Gavin Herlihy & Laura Jones and Mia Dora.
Since 2011 and his ubiquitous, monstrous Beatport #1, "Doin' Ya Thing", Berlin's Oliver $ has been a big deal. There is an art to making records that are so effective yet at the same time so simple, and when it comes to putting them together, Oliver $ is one of world's best. For this remix, he doesn't mess with the formula and fixes Roman's paean to lost love to one serious tribal groove. Add a system shaking baseline and some special fx and there you have it. Simple. Effective. Massive.
Whilst Gavin Herlihy's rise to fame has been a slow burn, rising up since 2006 with solid releases on labels like Cocoon, Cadenza, Get Physical and Buzzin Fly through to Visionquest, Crosstown Rebels and Culprit before ending up with the killer "Get Loose" on Leftroom, Laura Jones arrived with a bang in 2011 thanks to "Love In Me" her killer organ anthem. Here they team up and take Roman's vocals on a jagged ride through the darker sides of house, a perfect 6am mix.
From their breakthrough remix for Roots Manuva at the end of 2011, Glasgow's latest production stars Mia Dora had a busy 2012. A stand-out track on Jaymo & Andy George's Moda Black compilation lead to a full EP for Moda Black. Their single release on Glasgow's hip High Sheen label has been played by djs from Jackmaster to Seth Troxler and they have remixes due for Parker and latest Crosstown Rebels signing, Walker & Royce. Their version of "Let Me Show You" sounds like Maurice Donovan remixing an R&S classic, all 909 rhythms and a larger than life rave hook.
