The weight is off his shoulders

Anthony Moore, known as Romanthony, has died at age 46.

Romanthony provided legendary vocals for Daft Punk's Discovery. The album opens with his voice, and closes with it. He helped shape the sound of house music in the early nineties and his influence is still heard in electronic music today.

I just realized he died on the 7th, not the eve of the release of the new album. Apologies.

It’s a physical impossibility not to smile, move, dance, raise your arms, jump in the air. Or whatever it is that your body does to tell you that yes this is it and yes this is why we are here and this is why we came out and this is why we love dance music and yes fucking yes fucking yes fucking yes… In hindsight, no other track ever really stood a chance.

Romanthony is so, so good. It's already in the post, but I just want to remind everybody to listen to his masterpiece, "Hold On." It's awesome. The man was brilliant, that's for sure.

Man, too bad. I will play One More Time on a loop in my car on my commute into work and sing it in his honour.
