  • Description Following on from the re-issue of the classic Dixon edit of "The Wanderer", Glasgow Underground revisits another of Romanthony's classic works. Bring U Up originally appeared on Roman's Blackmale label in 1995 as a rumbling slice of New Jersey garage complete with gospel samples and Romanthony collaborator The Trojan Horse. It was a bit of a cult favourite with underground heads like DJ Deep. It wasn't until Roman completely re-produced and re-sang the song in 2000 that it fully took on anthem status. Out went the heavy kicks and hypnotic moods and in came James Brown horn stabs and a live beat that sounded like Bernard Purdie had joined him for the session (the drums were actually provided by Roman himself). The result was an instant club hit with everyone from Pete Tong to Francois Kevorkian that reached (a very respectable 74) in the UK national charts. For the 2012 versions we wanted to cover as wide a range of house as we could Deetron's version (already promo'd and released as a single by Balance - not that they were meant to!) takes the funk vibe of Roman's 2000 version and toughens it up for todays dancefloors, PBR Streetgang deliver a wonderfully deep modern house groove, Lee Webster adds a monster baseline and some serious beats, Toby Tobias delivers 2 mixes straight out of the 90s basement and Glaswegian wunderkind Barrientos offers a kind of sun-kissed Gypsy Woman style re-invention. Also included is an unreleased DJ friendly edit of the 2000 version done by Kevin McKay. Check out the DJ Reactions here: http://soundcloud.com/glasgowunderground/sets/romanthony-bring-u-up-2012/
