Romeo Blanco (BE)
Christened as future talent by CR2 Records, Romeo Blanco has continued to prove himself a worthy new member of Electronic Music Aristocracy. Bred on the rich vibes of Carl Cox and Frankie Knuckles, his induction into the industry has Sony Music, Flamingo Records and Spinnin Records alike bowing to the effervescent dialect of his floor-filling studio work. True to his name, Romeo Blanco has successfully seduced the industry with a delectable studio dialect of universal resonance. Despite being a late riser as far as Europe’s Electronic music legacy is concerned, the emotive resonance of Blanco’s tracks are already making positive marks on the modern industry and its key players. From fateful Flamingo Recordings debut ‘Galactica’ to the lucid Tïesto-endorsed follow-up ‘Universal Love’, Fedde Le Grand’s eye for fresh-faced talent drove an instantaneous surge of positive energy into the young producers club-credibility. But with an eye for crafty mainstream crossovers, Blanco’s impending legacy has proven one on tactful genre intervention. Topping the DMC Miami Buzz Chart with his remix of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’ and adding a persuasive remodel of the Florence And The Machine’s ‘What The Water Gave Me’ to his studio credentials, Blanco’s work brags a level of avid consistency few have successfully mustered amid the age of liberal sampling. But the pace is not about to halt for the rising Belgian House force. With other high-level releases upcoming & high-class remixes ready to roll, the New Year beckons further international pursuits from the diplomatic trailblazer of his country’s unassuming House scene. Where the name ‘Romeo’ beckoned images of abstract adoration throughout history, the life and times of Romeo Blanco culminate from a genuine love of his craft and the dynamic verve to make an audible mark on Electronic Dance Music.
