"What $ Love" is one of Romanthony's rarest songs. The original house mixes - only ever released on the fleeting US imprint Vinylmania - is one of his most sought after pieces of vinyl with pristine copies selling for upwards of £100. Roman did make an R&B version on his Glasgow Underground album but the house mixes with their low-slung dubby organ & bass grooves are the real dj deal.
The classic cut from the Vinylmania 12" (Roman's Remix) is included here, as are three new mixes from Supernova, Christian Nielsen and Those Beats.
Christian Nielsen delivers possibly the most club-friendly mix on the package, taking Roman's vocals on a tough, percussive, jacked-up house groove. Supernova add a touch of hypnotic beauty choosing to sample of Roman's voice and layering them over a sublime groove. Lastly, Glasgow's finest Those Beats add a touch of jazz giving this classic track the kind of workout you'd expect from someone like Pal Joey or the Rednail Kidz.
