“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 two new mixes from Supernova and Those Beats.
Supernova deliver a touch of hypnotic beauty chosing to sample of Roman’s voice and layering them over a sublimely Sasha-esque groove while 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.
