Tony Romera Announces Forthcoming Album Title ‘Introspection’ and Releases Gritty Second Single “MS69” on Monstercat.
Listen on Spotify
Following the release of “VHS” last month, French house producer Tony Romera returned to the label today with the second single “MS69” off his forthcoming album ‘Introspection‘ due later this year on Monstercat. While staying true to his signature bass-fueled sound, Tony pushes the boundaries on “MS69,” bringing aggressive, high-intensity energy to the track.
The screechy synth lead and gritty bassline perfectly accompany each other, driven forward by crisp percussion and a thumping kick. Paying homage to his Lyon roots with “69” in the title referencing his hometown postal code of 69000, Tony’s production prowess is on full display, as “MS” stands for the Korg MS-20 he used to design the track.
Tony Romera shares, “I was feeling heated the day I made “MS69.” It was originally called “UPS FDP,” which translates to me cursing at UPS in French slang because they were late on delivering my new synths. Since I wasn’t able to get them in time, I decided to make a super-aggressive track with my Korg MS-20. I was playing with the filter and it reminded me of one of my favorite records from Daft Punk, “Rollin’ & Scratchin’.” With that in mind, “MS69” was born! This song really defines my darker side. I’ve been impulsive since I was a kid and I think that comes through in this track.“
Fans can look forward to experiencing tracks from ‘Introspection’ live, as Tony makes his EDC Las Vegas debut in October on the stereoBLOOM stage.
