Vega & Romero
- El Ritmo
Bambossa | 28.05.2021
Louie Vega and Harry Romero collaborate for the first time with ‘El Ritmo’ landing on Bambossa Records this May.
Fuelled by organic percussion and soaring atmospherics, ‘El Ritmo’ is a Latin-influenced affair that provides listeners with a fully immersive late-night anthem. A cavernous vocal snippet raises the temperature, while a tumbling blast of heavy drums, dubby chords and rising pads add essential texture to this enchanting offering in style.
The iconic Louie Vega needs little introduction. He has been deeply involved in the scene for more than three decades, rising through the ranks with a well-crafted sound on labels like Nervous, Defected, and his Vega Records imprint, as well as part of the legendary Masters At Work and Nuyorican Soul with Kenny Dope. Last year welcomed the arrival of his chart-topping collaboration ‘Let It Go’ alongside The Martinez Brothers and Marc E. Bassy on Defected, making its way into Beatport charts, whilst gaining over 3 million streams globally.
Harry Romero has carved out an impeccable reputation amongst New York’s house scene and across the globe, firmly cementing his position as a producer, DJ, and remix artist with material gracing the finest house imprints across the planet. Romeo’s Bambossa Records imprint continues to go from strength to strength, with a discography of multi-dimensional material from the label boss himself as well as the likes of Basement Jaxx, Demuir, and Robb Swinga. The cover of ‘El Ritmo’ was drawn by Romero, combining traditional Colombian and Puerto Rican tribal drawings to reflect both artists’ heritage on this exciting new release.
“Harry and I have always talked about a collaboration on a track, the plan finally came to fruition. We had fun on this one and look forward to moving dancefloors worldwide, El Ritmo, let’s go!” – Louie Vega
“Louie Vega is a person that I hold in very high regard. He is one of the main reasons why I got into house music. So, to have had the opportunity to collaborate with him and to release our work on my label Bambossa is truly a dream come true.“ – Harry Romero
