French house aficionado Tony Romera returned today with the third single off his forthcoming debut album, ‘Introspection‘. Linking up with Canadian rapper Max Wassen, the two have delivered this year’s most relatable track, “Party On My Own” on Monstercat.
Listen on Spotify
“Party On My Own” is a lyrical mixture of melancholia and euphoria, it’s a callback to the nights we all partied alone in our homes over the last year. Tony’s effortless groove is the perfect counterpart to Max’s raw rap stylings, crafting an irresistibly catchy tune fit for your next kickback. Their wax poetics come to life in the music video featuring gluttonous scenes from a quarantine dream.
Tony Romera shares, “This track defines how we all felt a few months ago, combining nostalgia and melancholia with hope and happiness at the same time. When I started, I wanted to make something super experimental with some new production techniques I had just learned at the time. Then my friends Miller Miller showed me Max Wassen who was working with them on another project. I totally went nuts when he sent me his work on this song.”
Max Wassen adds, “If you think we’re making light of a horrible situation then you are 100%, incredibly, undeniably, sorta, kinda right. It’s not that we don’t have empathy for those affected by the pandemic, it’s that the news already makes everything seem like the world is ending so how ’bout a shred of fun during this shitty time, eh?”
Tony Romera Bio
Tony Romera first stepped onto the scene 10 years ago as a fresh-faced 20 year old looking to make waves and disrupt the conventional EDM world with his unique style and French-house inspired beats.
Since then he’s been busy releasing music and experimenting with different sounds and styles, attracting powerhouse labels such as Monstercat, Insomniac, OWSLA, Mad Decent, Spinnin, Armada, and Confession. Not to mention official remixes for Calvin Harris, Diplo, MØ, Zomboy, Kungs, Petit Biscuit, Moksi, and many more. His latest music has gained new admirers in the likes of Diplo, Skrillex, The Chainsmokers, Madeon, Porter Robinson, and most importantly his french peers a.k.a. the Pardon My French Crew, DJ Snake, Tchami, Malaa, and Mercer.
Both of Tony’s Insomniac Records releases, “4 The People” and “Girls Night Out”, collaborations with Noizu and Dombresky, respectively, have amassed over a million streams on Spotify alone and across all other streaming platforms. In addition, his single “Darlin”, a collab with producer Throttle, was self-released via SANS MERCI and has close to 1 million streams. In 2020 and 2021, after a great US debut tour, Tony has been locked in the studio releasing collabs with artists like Tchami, Good Times Ahead, Shaun Frank, Aazar, Damien N-Drix, and more. Over the years, he made a few big TV/video game sync for Budweiser, MTV, Netflix, Rocket League, Aldi, and many more.
His latest releases have really brought him a whole new fan base and respect among producers. Tony started his own label SANS MERCI to discover some young cool artists, release the tracks of his friends, and of course, put out his own tracks. SANS MERCI keeps a particular vibe, each track is different from the last while staying true to their vision. With tracks from Keeld, Bellecour, Throttle, Shermanology, Basstrick, GODAMN, SQWAD, Michael Sparks, ATRIP, Badjokes, and more… SANS MERCI has just begun.
